It's A Cloche Party!!!


I am absolutely thrilled to once again be joining in all the fun over at my sweet friend Marty's blog, A Stroll Thru Life. She is having another one of her highly anticipated Cloche Parties. Yay!

Just click on the button above to take you where all the fun is. Oh! But, before you go, please stay a bit and see what I have to share....

Recently I rearranged our petite cottage living room. As you can see, behind the coffee table I added a bit more seating. I brought our window seat from downstairs...I think it looks cute in it's new home, don't you?


I also redecorated our coffee table. I decided to go with a Paris theme.


And here's my beautiful green glass cloche.
Inside I'm displaying a petite Eiffel Tower, a vintage key and a votive candle holder which I wrapped with a printout of a vintage postcard.


And on the top I tied a black organza bow with yet another vintage key and a Paris inspired tag I made. Tres chic...n'est-ce pas?
And here you can see my little wire cloche, which I created/repurposed from a decorative corset...Click here if you would like to see what it looked like before.

Inside are a couple of pear green votive candles, one of my favorite colors, and a cute little cluster of grapes.
And the top is adorned with a beautiful vintage earring I purchased at a flea market a couple years ago.

**********

I hope you enjoyed your visit with me today. And now, why not run over to Marty's to see what other cloche enthusiasts are sharing.

Wishing everyone a totally awesome weekend.
Blessings.




Hugs and Kisses,

Great job on this, Ana. You used some sweet details!

Everything looks so great! I was trying to get closeups... of your pillows and the fabric on your bench.

I have green in my sofas and I use a lot of pink and cream..also a little blue and yellow. I could turn my cushions on my sofa to all green..instead of having to make slipcovers but I am still wanting to use pink....a bit of blue and a hint of black. I cannot get it right.

Even in my kitchen I am having a bit of trouble incorporating the black. You did it beautifully.

All your cloches are lovely as well :)

Your home is just gorgeous. I love the bench, it is just perfect. The coffee table vignette is just perfect. Your green cloche is so pretty with the paris theme. You did such a good job with the tag and the key is always perfect. I really have to find some of those. Your wire cloche just amazes me. That is so talented and how pretty with the candle and grapes. Thanks so much for joining the party. I am having a ball. Hugs, Marty

Dawn said...

I just love this room Ana. I always have trouble getting mixing all white with items that have little white. You've done it so well here. Mind if I hang out and study for a while?

Beautiful cloche arrangements. I think I'm the only blogger with no cloches!
Hugs,
Dawn

Natasha said...

Ana, you are so creative and very stylish indeed! I just love your Parisian themed vignette and that cute little tag. I must see if I can find a metal cloche somewhere-yours is gorgeous!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and best wishes always,
Natasha.

Lisa said...

I LOVE the paris themed cloche. What a great idea!

Stacey said...

Very, very pretty, Ana! I would LOVE to have your living room but like I posted today I can't have the white because of our kids and dogs. All your decorating is always so nice and such an inspiration!

P.S. I have the doily runner that you have across your coffee table. I use mine as a curtain in the kitchen window.

XOXO

Janean said...

much better as a cloche! just got my first cloche and getting inspiration from you...however, don't think i could do the metal remake though i adore it!

Cindy said...

Ana, I love all of your cloches. They are all so beautifully put together. I love the Paris theme. The windowseat looks wonderful in your living room. It's always nice to have more seating. Hugs, Cindy S.

Thanks for visiting me. I loved your display of cloches, especially the one with the Eifel Tower.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Such a lovely display. Your living room looks warm and inviting. I really like your wire cloche. I am going to have to on the lookout for something similar. (I probably won't run across a wire corset to convert into a cloche like you did.) LOL
