Fall Cloche Party!



Hey everyone, there's a party going on at

It's Marty's Fall Cloche Party! Yay!!



And I'm so excited to be joining in all the fun.
Please won't you join us? Come in and take a peek!
I've decorated my dinning room table for the fall season and have included an apothecary filled with pears! Our sweet hostess Marty let us know that the party was not limited to only cloches. We could also share apothecaries and/or other vessels used to display our little treasures. How fun is that?

These are closeups of a pair of cute autumn inspired birds and a pumpkin.



Next is my newest purchase. A vintage decorative cloche thermometer! Isn't it beautiful? I've never seen one like it before. My daughter spotted it while we were antique shopping this summer. She has a good eye.

This little vignette can be found on my coffee table. I transformed this huge chandelier glass lamp into a cloche. On the top I just added a glass drawer knob and some white decorative knob plates and voila! I love how the glass has these decorative lines going down and all the way around. Makes it look like a bird cage, don't you think?

I'm a bird lover, especially love birds. Aren't they the cutest?Inside the cloche you can find a nest with two little eggs. I found the nest in my hedges this summer while trimming them. Fortunately the birdie family had already moved out.

And this is the drawer knob I mentioned above.

And last, but not least this cute petite cloche I bought at Michael's...it was 70% off!


A great big thank you goes out to the gracious and lovely Marty for hosting this wonderful Fall Cloche Party.


Please run on over to A Stroll Thru Life and see what other participants are sharing today!


And thank you so much for stopping. Please come back again real soon.
