Christmas cloches

Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life is hosting a holiday cloche party. I know mine aren’t original and groundbreaking, but I love the way they just say, “Christmas”. I bought 2 packs of completely unbreakable by toddlers shatterproof balls…..one lime green and one red, and I used them all over the place. I love the way they have different textures and just look so pretty together while being simple and traditional.  I also bought a pack of lime green glitter snowflakes at Walmart for $3.50. I used ribbon to attach them to my apothecary jars, and the extra glittery touch was the icing on the cake.

This is my windowsill over my sink. This display makes me smile every time I walk to my sink ;)

I love the way the balls and ornament glitter and shine….. I LOVE lime green.

We don’t really have an entry way in our home, but this is my attempt at creating one….This space is to the right of the kitchen door and to the left of the opening of our living room. This is my “vintagey” Christmas spot…..The cloche has Victorian shoppers, Christmas trees, and snow.

It’s always SO difficult to get a shot inside this cloche that doesn’t look distorted…. Anne Pearce and Essie LOVE this display, but AP always wants to, “Let dat man out, Mommy.”

101_1682  Here are another pair of apothecary jars on my library table that features my Santa explosion collection. Again you see the lime green and red balls with the snowflake ornament.

Here’s the other one ;)

These last 3 have nothing whatsoever to do with a cloche party, but they tell the story of my life. I tried VERY hard to get a decent picture of my girls in downtown Fairhope today, and this is all I got:

Yep, crazy

Don’t cha love the way they follow instructions to sit and smile for the camera? (insert sarcasm here)

Sometimes I wish they made a cloche big enough to hold these two! :) Merry Christmas!

Oh, those silly little girls are soo cute! It's precious how they match each other so often.

I really like the victorian cloche you have going on... I don't have any cloches (yet!) but I was thinking maybe I could pull this of with a very plain glass cake stand? Hopefully soon I will have a table to put it on. Like yours, my house doesn't have a specific 'entryway', you just walk right into the craziness here! ;) Like what you've done with that table/chest, give you the perfect space to decorate!

Well, it must seem confusing to have the man "trapped" under glass :) I love the red and lime green together! Somebody should have thought of these unbreakable ornaments a long time ago--would have saved a lot of trouble!

I love that combination, too! Love those snowflakes, too!

Well Lou, I never heard of a cloche. I like them and I guess I have seen them--just didn't know what they were called. That is too funny about letting the man out! Sorry your girls wouldn't cooperate for a picture, but they still look so cute in their Christmas outfits (as always in their Foo Foo by You You).:)

Your apothecary jar and your cloche are just perfect. I love the red and green ornaments and your little town under the cloche is just perfect. I love seeing the victorian shoppers and the cute little trees. Such fun. YOur vignettes are so pretty. Your Santa collection is lovely, they are all just so pretty. Most of all your children are precious. What fun. Thanks so much for joining the party. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

Oh Sweetie...
Everything looks positively beautiful. I love your window vignette. The little Santa plate on the stand next to the colored red and green balls, in the apothcary jar is so beautiful. I love the tall candle holders also. It just looks like it was made for that window sill. Love it..

I love the Santa collection that you have. Each one so unique and I am sure they have a story behind them. Usually when we buy them there is a reason behind each one. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful decorating ideas with me today.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next.

Please stop by and let me share my cloche ideas with you. I would also be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs...Sherry
