Cloche Party

I've joined Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life for her Summer Cloche Party. I didn't even know what they were called, but I knew that I loved them. They were just "domes" to me!! Then when I started blogging I noticed everyone calling them cloches. I don't even know how to pronounce that...LOL!!!! I only have 2 and they are so fun to decorate for the seasons. The one with the starfish has my Grandpa's marbles, that he used to play with when he was young. They look like eggs but they aren't. These are so big, I don't know how they played marbles with them. Marty needs to host this every season. I get so many wonderful ideas from everyone else.


  1. Your 'domes' are so cute!! I couldn't pronounce cloche either! lol!! And I really did think the marbles were eggs~very neat!

    By the way, I love your header. Is that from a vacation?


  2. Your cloches are wonderful and how great to have your grandfathers marbles. I love the black stand.
    Hugs, Sherry

  3. The first one is really special and I love the shape of the second one, very pretty!

  4. your use of nests. olive♥

  5. These are so pretty! I love the marbles! What a great way to remember your grandfather!


  6. Both of your cloches are so pretty! Love the shapes and what you've poked under them! :)

  7. I love your cloches but that black one stole my heart.
    I just read your profile and we have so much in common. In fact everything! Now, if I just wasn't 73 we could be twins! :)

  8. Beautiful ... I love it when they hold a special memory treasure.

  9. Oh I love both of your cloches. Their shapes are wonderful. The seaside is lovely and the nest is gorgeous. They really do look like eggs. How ingenius is that. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  10. Two is enough when they're this pretty! I love the idea of using yout grandpas's marbles. I also hope Marty does this again next year. I have lots of ideas and will be keeping my eyes open for the perfect cloche.

    Enjoy the rest of the party...
