It's A Cloche Party!!!!

Couldn't pass up the chance to join in the fun of this delightful party hosted by the delightful Marty over at A Stroll Through Life (hi Marty!). I cheated a little bit here as I don't have a true cloche, but I came pretty cloche, er close. I've also included my assortment of apothecary jars and I think even a glass thingamajiggy. Hey it's a party and I never pass up an invitation to a party, especially on Friday nite!

This is where I cheated a little bit. This isn't a real cloche per se, it's one of those cheese dome things that I got at Goodwill to try to pass it off as a cloche.


Yeah, I still have the bird's nest out. I know it's a little too Springy and we're already somewhat into Summer (okay, not technically), but I think I'll keep it out a bit longer.

These apothecary jars I've shown before - they are on my dresser in my Master Bedroom.





Another one in my Master Bath. Hubs and I will be tackling this room next and I think I'm gonna go for a coastal theme in here.


This is that thingamajiggy I was talkin about. It's on hubs' nightstand.

Fake flowers compliments of Walmart.

This huge jar I got at Home Goods and I like it on my Dining Room table. I'll change it out for the seasons. Can't you see gold balls in here for Christmas???


And finally my kitchen. I know this has been overused on HGTV, but I like it anyway!


Thanks for hosting this fun party Marty (yeah, it rhymes). And for forcing me to dust my glass.

You are too funny. I really enjoyed your post. I call a cheese dome a cloche, so therefore, it is. See that was easy. I love the apothecary jar with the white starfish the best. And I still have birdies in most of mine. Summer doesn't officially start till Sunday. So you have today & tomorrow to change it out. I guess I better get to mine.

Hey,
Loved your post and how creative you are. Believe it or not, I have a "thingamajiggy" in our bedroom too! It looks very similar to yours. Keep inspiring! Have a great weekend...

Wow, I didn't know you could do so many things with cloches and jars. I'm going to have to join in the fun! I like your starfish jar best, but I also like the lemons and limes.

I have a cheese dome too. I need to get me a little bird, but I really love the tassel on the lid. Now, I'm going to have to go get a tassel.

Hey Kim! I love your cloche, you can make whatever you want to a cloche, you know. Funny, I don't have a single glass jar in this house! I love to check out everyone else's but with my boys and cats...I'll wait a while on those! Glad you came to visit, I haven't looked at ANY blogs this week. I am on the biggest, and hardest book of my studies. And it has kicked my booty!!! I'll check out the guy you told me about. Don't know him yet. I have a "mellow" playlist and then I have my "Alanis" kind of playlist too. Depends on my mood of the day!

Have a great weekend!

P.S. I got "skedusl" this time. Kinda sounds like an excuse to go, like..."got to skedusl on outta here"

This is nuts! I copied this to a word doc yesterday. I tried to comment right after you emailed me and it wouldnt' let me. So I was here yesterday! Don't think I forgot about you girl!!!

I like apothecary jars just as much as the cloches, and I only had one actual cloche. I like the way you have them all over the house. Mine are gathered together at the moment. (And I do mean the moment...)

I am late seeing this, but your "cloches" look so pretty. Love the jar on your dining table, and that one with the star fish in it looks so beachy. Great job. laurie
