Christmas Cloche Party


Hi everyone!  Today I’m joining Marty @ for a Christmas Cloche party.  I have been so busy decorating for Christmas but I couldn’t pass Marty’s fabulous cloche party!  I always enjoy participating and looking at everyone else’s beautiful cloches or apothecary jars. :) 

I’m also having a giveaway for my followers.  You can sign up here.

I’m still decorating and tweaking around my house like a busy bee. :)  This is a hurricane glass and I turned a champagne glass upside down and then placed the candle on top.  Around the hurricane glass I used two poinsettia picks. IMG_5057

I used ornaments to spice up this….cloche?  I don’t know whether this is a cloche or not.  LOL!  Anyway, I made a little bow and tied it underneath.IMG_5062

In this apothecary jar I simply placed an ornament and a Christmas pick.  IMG_5064

I love the combination of red and gold.   Those are my main colors I like to use for Christmas. :)IMG_5073

I hope you all don’t mine that these pretty bells join the party.  They do look like cloches, don’t they? *wink wink*  They are all decked out for Marty’s party. IMG_5071

Thank you so much for visiting my humble blog.  I do hope you come back and visit for a while. :) 



If you’d like to see my Christmas tree all decked out for Christmas, check out my post below! :)

Oh my goodness, you do have some of the prettiest jars I have see, and the stemmed cloche is just gorgeous. I really love the twig bells,they are fabulous cloches. I think I would decorate one of them all year long. Also, you do make the prettiest bows and your ribbons are gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining the party. I love it all. Hugs, Marty

Hi Sandra sweetie...
Everything looks so festive over here. Girl I love everything. I love this red and gold combination.

Your cloche with the red and gold balls is the sweetest. I love it, and I love that it was finished with a bow attached. So festive.

I really love the short squatty apothecary jar with the finial on top. So unusual and so beautiful.

Now those bells to me say Christmas, Noel, and Joy to the World. I love them, and thanks for sharing those today. Sweetie they are so festive. Thanks for sharing. Have a beautiful day. Please stop by and let me share my cloche ideas with you as well.

Country hugs...Sherry

Hi Sandra,
It was wonderful to have your sweet message and to come by and view your beautiful blog. We have our six children in common. Not many huge familes out there anymore, so it's nice to meet another crazy mom.
