Cloche Party

Marty at  A Stroll Thru Life  is having a Cloche Party!  I love Cloches and I am forever changing things around in mine.  Here are photos of current displays as well as some from the past. Enjoy!


I have added my collection of silver mirrors and vanity items to this cloche. It sits on a favorite silver bowl.











This one is from Christmas last year.




Marty said you could call any type of container a "cloche" for this party so I am including my birdhouse. The top opens and I use this as a carrier for my transferware.






I dressed this bird cage up with a chandelier, vintage photos and perfume bottle.


Here is my largest "cloche" of all!  A tall candle in a glass vase in the center and it is surrounded by seashells, coral, sea fans and glass floats.


I hope you enjoyed my collection.  Please visit Marty's Cloche Party at  A Stroll Thru Life

I am also joining:

Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Sherry

I love all your cloches, Sherry! The one with the silver base and the silver under the cloche is quite striking, and I love the one with the nest under it. I only have the one that I'll be sharing but I was so thrilled to find that one!

Sherry, I love your cloches. I love the bird cage one on the wall and that giant one in the last picture. I am also seeing some beautiful rooms and furniture such as the bench and a breakfront. Have you shown your rooms in some old archives that maybe I missed or have you not shared them with us. Please do if you haven't.

Very pretty! The silver collection is just stunning under glass. It really shines.

Hi Sherry,
I'm so in love with everything here that I don't know where to begin. First of all, I love the idea of featuring your silver vanity items underneath the cloche. I may have to borrow that idea.

The birdcage holding the transferware plates is so charming, what a wonderful idea.

The large cloche holding the candle is 2die4!

I love them all.

hugs

Oh my goodness...what beauties! They are all little works of art! I am so inspired...I think I will copy the one with the dishes and the last one you featured...I have a huge birdcage that will probably do the trick!

SO GORGEOUS!

Enjoy!

You definitely have the touch when it comes to creating beautiful cloches and vignettes! Love the silver in and around the first one. Your bird cages are great as well. The chandeliers add a wonderful whimsical/elegant touch!

Sherry, what great ideas and what great cloches. I love the plates in the birdcage! That silver dresser accessories in the silver bowl are so elegant looking, and I'd say you have to win the prize for the tallest cloche! How neat that is. laurie

Your cloches collection paired with your silver and other special touches is truly charming and elegant. I too collect cloches and use throughout the home and to help speed along my lettuce in the garden.

Hi Sherry, Just gorgeous images of all your cloches.. I especially like the one set in with the pink china and all the nice looking silver. I have a few cloches and I like messing with them too. I'm definitely coming back to look at more post.... it looks like a lot of inspiration going on here.

Have a Wonderful Day*

Very creative and eye opening. My favorites have to include the birds nests.

Nancy said...

Hi Sherry,

I like each display you've created with your cloche's but I must say the one with the silver vanity items is stunning! I think it's one of the prettiest cloche vignettes I've seen.
