A Cloche Party



It's a Cloche Party today. Check out all the great ideas for using cloches (and close variations) at A Stroll Thru Life. A teacup-pot combo with a sprig of ivy is in my dining room.



An old anniversary clock dome is what I used for this cloche. I found it at a Goodwill for $.50. So, in this one is a hen (salt shaker) on a nest of Limoge cups. This sits down in my very country family room.




This little cloche I found and it exactly fit a butter dish whose dome was broken a while ago. I like bows and what-nots affixed to their handles. I've really enjoyed looking at all the other cloches - gives me lots of ideas for changing my own. I tend to change my cloches with the seasons. I like looking at everyone else's ideas to see what I could do as well. Enjoy!

Love your cloches. The teapot is so pretty inside the cloche and the clock done with the cups and chicken is super. What a lovely figurine under the last one. You are so clever to see a clock dome and think to use it as a cloche. I had never thought of that and yet today I've seen several. We have some really talented and creative people including yourself out there. I'm having a ball looking at all of them. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
