WINTER CLOCHE PARTY - only my 2nd one!

In getting photos for this post, the Winter Cloche Party at Marty’s, I realized that the things which I am putting in or under these cloches are some of my favorite things. Maybe it’s just things I am wanting to see. I know it is a winter party, and you will see winter items in my cloches, but you will also see some hints of spring.

Here is list of things you will see in my cloches:

White trees (hope it’s not too “Christmasy” looking; we've seen a lot of white trees lately around here!),

a black and white snowy, house picture which I tore off a gift bag at Christmas, (yes, I'm sorry, but I do love snow!),

bird figurines,

touches of silver,

touches of green (the color that every one is looking for nowadays!

I love decorating with moss and these fake artichokes !

Then there is my favorite cloche which is on the piano which sets in the foyer (I know it is a weird place for a piano, but it is the only place that has room for it)

Under this cloche are some more of my faves: a collection of old doorknobs, (from when I was really into “junking”!), and also an animal printed bauble (or whatever you call it!)

These are just a few of my favorite things, but at the top of the list is the cloche itself. I have loved them ever since I saw my first one a couple of years ago. I am so notorious for changing my decorations, and cloches are wonderful for doing just that; you can change them with the seasons, with your moods, or on a whim!

So here goes my Winter Cloche Party!


  1. Oh my, they are all so pretty and in such gorgeous vignettes. When I saw the black and white orbs with the old door knobs I was sure that was my favorite, then the snow trees and the cloche on a silver base with the wonder silver beads tied to the top and everything displayed just so was definitely my favorite. So ok, I just have to change my mind and say I love them all. The artichokes, limes, reindeer moss, cute snowman filled with snow, I really do like them all. This is so much fun. Thank you so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
