Summer Cloche Party

We're back from a long vacation! I'm just in time to join in Marty's Summer Cloche Party! Thanks for hosting, Marty! Click on her name for lots more cloche designs!

My newest cloche:
I wasn't going to buy anymore cloches since I have quiet a few already, but when I saw this one in Ross's a few months ago, I couldn't resist, especially since it had this low price tag on it:


And this cute little birdie on top!
Can you blame me? Could you resist?

I wanted to come up with something different to display in it, not the usual bird's nest, but it did need a bird! Here's what I had on hand to use!
A white silk rose with a white ceramic bird and a "nest" made from a pearl rope belt. My mother made this pearl rope belt back in the 70s. I just love it!

This cloche vignette is displayed in our living room.

A large feather, a pearl candle and a Blessings plaque complete the vignette:
"Remember to count your blessings each and everyday!"









I hope you like my new cloche and the tabletop vignette I did with it!
I have also re-posted last year's Summer Cloche Party, if you haven't already seen it with my collection of different cloches and fun designs, click here to see them (or scroll down.)

I have never seen a cloche at that kind of price before! No wonder you bought it-it's gorgeous!

I like your alternative to the standard bird/nest/eggs cloche, Katherine! All the whites look so pretty together and it is perfect for Summer.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Your cloche vignette is absolutely lovely!

I hope that you will stop by and enter my giveaway.

Also, I have begun a new meme entitled Wayfaring Wednesdays. Link up your trips and favorite excursions.

You made the right decision in NOT resisting the beautiful bird cloche..he is gorgeous. Love your vignette.

Marilyn said...

I always enjoy seeing your cloche pictures. What a cute one with that bird sitting on top. I also liked your previous one with the Furlong ornaments. I have those ornaments, but I hadn't thought to have them out except at Christmas.

A Hint of Home said...

Love what you did with your new cloche and the vignette that you came up with.
I have the same cloche and I paid way more than you did. You got a great deal!

Kathleen said...

That def would have come home with me! It is so cute!

Your arrangement is superb and unique from others. A white silk rose with a white ceramic bird and a "nest" made from a pearl rope belt.
