Spring Cloche Party!


Cloche Partyclick on the button to visit Marty’s party

This Stroll Thru Life cloche party came upon me rather fast- where has the time gone lately?  These past few months have flown right past me!  And since I missed Marty’s last party, I made a hurried effort to participate this time. I put together a few cloches today, using some Easter decor and some birds and their nests. I think they say, “Spring,” and after such a long winter for many of us, I think we are all so  very ready for this season and some nicer weather.



duck cloche[5]

This cloche on my dining room serving buffet holds what appears to be a cute little rubber duckie bobbing through some waves of blue water.  But wait….   he is not a rubber duckie, at all!


This little guy is actually milk chocolate! How fun is this?

On a cabinet in the front entry, this small dome encases a treasure box topped with a little church and its steeple.


Small pastel Easter eggs adorn the miniature bleached bottle tree.

duckie ornament[6]

This sweet duckie is a homemade ornament that I found in an antique/thrift store in December.



I ordered this terrarium when I was at the furniture market in High Point several years ago.  It is a favorite of mine and this season it is filled with a momma bird and small nest filled with speckled eggs. The field grass smells so sweet and earthy whenever the hinged lid is opened.



This vignette on the fireplace hearth features birds and nests, once again.  The old postcard and the framed print were found in an antique shop last fall.




The kitchen table is set for breakfast and its centerpiece is a moss covered basket filled with wooden eggs. Faux dogwood blossoms encircle the bottom of the dome.








The potting bench in my laundry room is a perfect spot for this terrarium. I’m growing wheat grass in an eggshell perched on top of an inverted pot and its saucer. 






Reindeer moss from Gloria’s (Happy to Be) mountain accents a garden dragonfly ornamental and some heart shaped rocks.


Make sure that you visit Marty’s party, where I’m sure you’ll glean some great ideas and inspiration for use in your own cloche decorating!

Hugs and Happy Easter,
