It's Another Cloche Party!

It's finally here! Yay! Thanks Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for once again hosting such a fun time!

Without further ado - here we go!!!

First off - Marty - I have a confession. On my last post
you "guessed" this was a cloche. GOTCHA!
It's actually a birdcage! 


But it did kinda look like one from the picture.


See? OK, on with the Cloches!!!!


This apothecary jar kind of finds itself in new homes
around the house - depends on the season.
For Autumn it will sit in the entry




On into the dining room ...




My new wire cloche . . . 



 with a vintage Thanksgiving card tucked inside.







Found this little sweetie in a local antique store. 
Kinda hard to see what's inside because of the cut of the glass.

These next ones are in the hallway hutch - 
which is EXTREMELY difficult to take a picture of!



I don't move these around a lot because they are 
secured with earthquake stickum!

But I'm crossing my fingers as I took out my Mom's good china 
(behind each cloche). I never cared for it much
when I was growing up, but I've come to appreciate it since losing her.
It's called Monterey by Vernon Kilns.
OOOOPPPSS!!!!! There is that little owl again! How'd he get in there?
That's it for me. Now zip over to Marty's and see who else is joining the party. Have fun!

Oh Karen, you really did fool me. I really thought that was an iron cloche and not a birdcage. It is gorgeous anyway. I love all of your cloches. The cute glass and the etched glass and all of the pretty shapes, they are all decorated so beautifully. I love the wire one too and what a great thing to have a vintage card to display inside. You have created so stunning vignettes. I love them all. Thanks so much for joining the party. This is just so much fun to see everything everyone has done. Hugs, Marty

Earthquake stickum! Never heard of that. I've just lived in tornado country. I love your little owl in his little cloche nest. And all your mirrors and pretties. I want a white pumpkin and I CAN'T find one!!!

So much beauty on one page ! I love the little owl and the white-pumpkin-birdcage and what a wonderful idea to put an empty frame in front of the mirror and... I could go on and on like this.
