It's a Cloche party...a what? A cloche party!

Woohoo it is a cloche party! I never heard of them (embarrassing confession) until blogging. But hey...haven't we all learned a ton of new things because of blogging? Marty is our wonderful hostess. She is very, very kind...you just know it by her comments, and her blog (very inspiring.) Thank you Marty.
Below is a reindeer...yes he is in there amidst the soft snow....hmmmm...I can't make him out either but he is in there!

Apothecary jars filled with make believe candy...ok it's salt dough again!
Below the dog got a hold of my finial as I was trying to make the lid for my cloche.

More make believe (faux) goodies....mini muffin pan.

The thing I love the most about cloches is that they are great for showing off little miniatures...my favorite.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Debbie-I love your miniatures! I'm afraid I enjoyed my daughter's dollhouse much more than she did. I'd still love to have it out! Maybe one day I'll have a granddaughter! Your chewed finial made me smile--sounds like my house! Thanks for visiting!

Sandra said...

Hello. Your displays are so pretty. I had to smile when I read about your dog getting ahold of your finial. Sounds like my Skipper. lol Have a wonderful evening.

Becky said...

LOL oh, Debbie, a finial with character! You're right. I never heard of cloches before blogging either. Isn't it fun? Please come see mine.

Barbara said...

love you displays - hey I have that same tiny grater too! I use it to grate small things like parmesan cheese in tiny quantities.

Hi Debbie!

Your cloche displays are great! I almost did a glitter deer in a jar but I couldn't get him in!

Hi Debbie,
These are so charming and just how I like them! You made your one cloche? It's fabulous! I just love the glitter deer, everything reminds me of a Wonderful, Country Christmas! Cindy

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Oh I see the rheindeer and he is just so sparkly and pretty. It looks wonderful and all of your beautiful candy and muffins really do look so very real. Now I have to say that is the smallest cheese grater I have ever seen. I just love it and all the other miniatures. What special fun. Thanks so much for joining the party. I had such a great time looking at all your treasures. Hugs, Marty

Darlene said...

I love all your displays! The handmade cloche is fabulous. My Lucy would have done the same thing to the finial if she got ahold of it!!! Those miniatures are beautiful! Have a great Friday!♥

Oh Debbie,
Sweetie everything looks so beautiful. I love the kitchen minatures. They are so precious and look so festive for this time of year. I love the way you displayed in the little jar and then have your accessories around it. A great vignette for the kitchen. Just precious.

I can just see that critter getting hold of that finial. Gosh dog it. Mine has done a few of those things too. Who's hasn't right? Love it.

Beautiful eye candy sweetie. Thanks so much for sharing today. Please stop by and let me share my cloches with you.

Country hugs...Sherry

I spotted a reindeer!! lol!!

I love all your faux candy, Debbie. I always wanted to learn to make things with salt dough, it looks like fun. I like all of your miniatures too, so perfect for a cloche.

I didn't know what a cloche was either and in the last party a girl posted the definition!!! When I was looking for a cloche and went to a few shops and florists, no one had heard of them either! So I don't feel bad. Maybe we are all a bunch of odd birds!


Lisa said...

All your cloches are beautiful, but I especially love all the miniatures! Such a cute way to display them.

I enjoyed seeing your cloche designs, you have so many unique things, especially the things you make!

I used some of my Nativity collection under several different cloches.


Simple Home said...

I'm learning through various blogs that cloches don't have to be big. Yours are wonderful! I'd love to see the look on my twins faces when they tried to sneak one of these candies! They look so real. I'm always so inspired when I visit your blog!
