Cloche Christmas Party

I'm also linking to The Reason for the Season Nativity Party! Thanks for hosting, Lynn! Click here for lots more Nativity inspiration!

It's time for Marty's Christmas Cloche Party! Thank you, Marty, for hosting so we can create with our cloches! Click on Marty's name for lots of cloche inspiration.

This is a little Dreamsicle angel praying over Baby Jesus

Vintage look figurines:

Miniature Victorian House:

Wire cloche:

Glass star ornament (from Michael's) is perfect for this cloche:

The baby angels with Baby Jesus is one of my favorite Nativities!

Metal open terrarium makes a pretty stable:

Another favorite Nativity is this one my husband brought me from Italy!

Another favorite (most of them are favorites!)
Baby Jesus!

Do you have a favorite?

The cloche below is the one I featured in Marty's Table Top Tuesday this week:
It is a white Nativity from Italy:

For those of you who didn't see the Table Top Tuesday post, here's the rest of the vignette:
I'm also using this for my blog banner!

I like the way the colors turned out in these two photos below:

It was accidental, I wasn't trying for this color!

Confession time - I totally forgot the cloche party, so I cheated a little and used a few cloche designs from the past two years! The one below is new though!
Merry Christmas!

Oh wow, you had so many cloches! They are all so fun. I obviously need more. They just highlight your little vignettes. What a fun cloche party!

Your nativities are all so beautiful Katherine, and each one so different! Love the way you decorated them all! The bottle brush trees on the outside on the Victorian house are a fun touch too-enjoy:@)

All I seem to be doing lately is trying to catch up with everyone! lol Oh Katherine, I just love all of your cloche displays and such a delightful idea to have the nativity under most of them...gorgeous. Every time I go shopping I look for cloches and have no luck, I just don't know why they're so hard to get around here considering we have stores that SHOULD be selling them! lol For now I'll just admire yours:-) xoxo

Hi Katherine...you sure have some nice displays of cloches. I am going to be on the hunt for some after the holiday. I have one, not worthy of showing and sharing in this fabulous party. You sure inspired me!

Great cloches all decked out for Christmas and I love how some of them are surrounded by snow. My favorite is the terrarium with the Nativity.

Oh you have several wonderful nativity sets. I especially love your pretty set in the glass and iron lantern? It is wonderful! It reminds me so much of a stall for some reason. Sooo pretty!

Olive Cooper said...

your cloches are lovely and the Italians do the nativities like nobody else

Rettabug said...

Katherine, you give me "cloche envy" something awful...I don't have any! :(
I love each & every one of yours & they are all unique. Very creative displays!

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season. I heard it was pretty chilly down there but we're going down to 12ยบ tonight so no complaining from you, okay? Brrrrr! You should SEE all the snow we've got. I'll do a post with photos soon.

The nativity in the terrarium is gorgeous. They are all special, but I was drawn to that one.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Katherine~I'm amazed at all the wonderful treasures you create in your lovely cloche vignettes.
It's very awww inspiring.

We're making slow progress decking the halls at my home. Hubs cut our Christmas "TREEZILLA"!! down from the backyard this weekend. Turns out what grows outside really appears much smaller then you think, lol. With my college boy home it has put us in a festive mood.
Do you like playing Christmas music while decorating? For me the music welcomes a wonderful sentiment of the season to the air, as does the aromas of baking.

It's good to be back, I hope you get a chance to stop by for a visit.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

All wonderful nativities but I think my favorite was the little angels huddled around the manager and baby Jesus :)

CHRISTmas Blessings!
