Up on the roof top...cloche, cloche, cloche...

Little Ginger girl wants to welcome you to our home...for the cloche party!

In her little tiny cloche she stores extra buttons for her sewing...she also hides chocolate there once in awhile since no one seems to look here!
What is this?
Wow! I don't know about you but decorating with all kinds of cloches can be fun. Usually a cloche is a dome shaped glass that sets over a small plant to keep in moisture and block out cold. We use them in gardening and also decorating.

So welcome to this fun party all about creating visual ideas using cloches for decorating. Marty our hostess, who I've been blessed to know through blogging now for a couple of years does an incredible job decorating with these glass beauties. She always surprises me with her ideas and her home is oh so beautiful too! Be sure to visit her and the rest of the cloche neighbors here at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/
A little golden song bird singing to her golden eggs in their nest...she makes a pretty winter picture in her metal wired cloche.

In the kitchen we have a pie candle underneath another cloche on top of my play stove. I bake up all sorts of neat things here!

See the gingerbread man banner? It is so cute...I found it on Etsy...Cherry from Cherry's Jubilee made it. If you haven't seen her blog or Etsy shop she is beyond amazing when it comes to creating things! Don't miss her blog....oh my gosh...so cute!

Some litte vintage items in this smaller cloche.

Under this kitchen cloche on the buffet there are little (faux)gingerbread cookies and chocolate chip cookies. I made them out of salt dough! The little chocolate chips are actually peppercorns added to the top of the salt dough cookie before baking. I loved how they turned out. The frame behind is one I designed and it is in my Etsy shop.

Thank you so much for coming by! Leave a comment and I will be sure to come by and visit with you too!
I will be glad in the Lord." Psalm 104:34

You, my dear, have inspired me to decorate for Christmas. I went to storage yesterday to get the decorations. Today I will begin to deck the halls. Thank you for the festive inspiration. My family will be the benefactors of the glitz. I will enjoy it too.
