Marty's Cloche Party

I'm joining in my first Cloche Party hosted by Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life.  She has a beautiful blog and hosts a terrific party!

I don't own an actual cloche so had to improvise a bit with some apothecary jars and open glass vases but hope Marty won't mind.   

Not sure which lighting I like best but probably the picture below allows you to see the detail inside better.

Since it is also a Thanksgiving Cloche Party, here is a pic of what I did back in October for a Thanksgiving Centerpiece.

Be sure to pop on by A Stroll Thru Life and to see some very imaginative displays for cloches of all kinds.

Very beautiful!
I love the top photos, your collection looks so pretty in both the amber lighting and in the crystal clear white!
You're a great photographer!

Enjoy your weekend!
All the best,

Oh I love what you did with your jars. I am especially fond of the one with the votive candles in them and the color is such a favorite this year.

Oh My Gosh Sweetie...
Everything looks positively beautiful. I love your apothecary jar with the little bird. I like the second photo best, as it is so light and bright and clear. You can see everything inside of the jar. It is so beautiful. I love it.

I love the way you took the large glass jar, and added the three canelabras with tea lights inside. So beautiful and crisp. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cloche ideas with me today.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next.

Please stop by and let me share my cloche ideas with you. I would also be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs...Sherry

Wow, they look great!! I noticed on the post below you leave up decor until January. We now celebrate the Puerto Rican tradition "Three Kings" with the children on Jan, 5, so we leave ours up a bit later too.

You improvised very well. I just love the jars full of ornaments. Isn't it a shame we can't have them out all year long?

Sue all of your apothecary jars are so pretty, I think they make perfect cloches. You have such beautiful displays, and I love the deer in the first one, the candles in the next are stunning and your vignette with the beautiful gold trees is just stunning. Your Thanksgiving ones with the fruit are gorgeous. Thank you so much for joining the party. This is just such beautiful eye candy. Hugs, Marty

What a beautiful blog and post. I am so happy I stumbled across you! I read your bio and we sound so similar- married for 27 years, 2 children in their early 20's, and love decorating and tablescaping!
Your cloches are stunning- I love the christmas balls in the apothacary jars- I noticed the cranberries (?) and gold beads in the bottom of them. Very clever!
So glad I found you. I am a new follower.

I enjoyed seeing all of your designs, which are always fabulous! Love it all!

I used some of my Nativity collection in different cloches.
