It's a Cloche Party!

A Stroll Thru Life is having a Cloche party! This should be soooo much fun. I am more excited to see everyone else's ideas for their cloches as showing my feeble attempts. I have all different sizes and use various items for bases. I still do not have a wire cloche...(insert a whine here), but I bet I will see some today in blog land.

The first cloche is familiar as it is on my blog header. I just love this large cloche with my teacups in it.


A medium size cloche holds my and my husband's baby shoes. The next cloche is very small. I use an old flower frog to hold a picture of my husband grandmother when she was young.

Technically, probably not a cloche...but I just love this birdcage looking one with a bird in it for spring.

A find at Ross...cloche and the tall black stand. Right now it is holding one of my chickens.



Just a teacup and old hankerchief...on a wire cake stand.

This has been so much fun and I can't wait to see all of your cloches!

Hi Ceekay! I love all your cloches! You did a great job! The rooster is very proud to be displayed in a cloche. :) I don't have any but now i'm going to be on the lookout for them.
Blessings,
Sandra

Melissa Miller said...

Ceekay this is an amazing and beautiful display of cloches!

~Wonderful creativity my friend.

I don't think I can pick a favorite. They are all stunning!

Sue said...

Ceekay, EVERY one of your cloches was amazing. My favorites are the one w/the baby shoes and the one w/the flower frog and the vintage photo I just think it is nice to use personal items that mean something to you.
And BTW, the wired one w/the bird is definitely a cloche in my mind! :-) Sue

Oh Wow! You have done some wonderful cloche displays. I came over here to tell you that I was going to be a big copycat with my cloches, but I don't think it matters because the ones you have displayed for the party are fabulous! I know the first time I saw that cloche on your header, I fell in love with the way you had teacups stacked in it. I will be giving you cedit on my posting when I do it, but I completely copied your tea cup idea (mine just don't look as neat as yours). Hopefully, you'll know that I am copying your idea, because it is brilliant, and I just wasn't smart enough to come up with my own idea. Thanks so much for the inspiration of that one AND of these that you have posted for the party. You have a "way" with a cloche! laurie

Chandy said...

Ceekay, gorgeous cloches you've got! That one with the teacups is so cool!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

They are all so sweet - my favorite has got to be the teacup and saucer one though- beautiful set!

Picket said...

Ohhhh so pretty girl...the one with the baby shoes is just the most precious idea!!! I am loving seeing all this inspiration...

I didn't show my 'wire' one as you call it because it is a birdcage...I didn't know if that would be called a cloche or not but I use alot of those..man I could have sure nuf had a pretty post if I had done those!!! lol lol

Have a great weekend girl!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Oh my gosh...the baby shoes under glass just made me gasp! Love it! I was so lucky yesterday. I found antique European wire cloches. I only bought one but I think I need to go back and get the rest. Have a super great weekend. xo Lynn

Ceekay, I have always admired your large cloche with the teacups on your header, that is just so gorgeous. Your rooster is so cute in the smaller one. Your baby shoes is just so precious, looks like such a pretty keepsake. I love how you do all of them. Thanks so much for joining the party. I love them all and such wonderful inspiration. Hugs, Marty

I love all of your creative cloche displays but I have to say the baby shoes would have to be the most original and charming idea I've seen! Thanks for sharing. :)

Hi Ceekay...

Just read the sweet note that you left for me on my button cloche and vignette...thank you so much for coming by and leaving me such a sweet comment!!!

Girl, I have always admired that tall cloche with beautiful stacked tea cups...it's the best!!! I'm still looking for a tall one like this because I would love to do the same!!! Ohhh...and I love the idea of using a cloche to display memoriblia (sp?)...your honey's baby shoes and rattle are simply precious! I love that idea!!! Also displaying a vintage photo with the flower frog...all great ideas!!! Thank you so much for sharing all of your pretties with us!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer said...

I love all your displays! I am going to borrow some of your idea..when I finally get a cloche!

Charlotte said...

Very pretty. I told Hubby cloches were very "in" right now and that they have a lot of them at Marshall's and T.J. Maxx. He said "I guess you'll want to go shopping now." What a good idea. lol

movingonlady said...

The cups are beautiful.
I like the tall cloche that you had the cups in. Great ideal on the baby shoes.
Very cute

Beth at Aunties said...

Ceekay,

I loved the memories your cloches hold from the baby shoes to your husbands grandmother. The teacups looked fabulous! In fact they all look wonderful. I am finding I have got to get me some more cloches! :-)

Hugs this day!

Hi Ceekay, I love, love, love all your cloches. The vintage ones stole my heart. hugs ~lynne~

Brenda said...

This gave me so many more ideas! Putting heirlooms in them is great, because the glass protects them. All these are really beautiful.

Great collection of cloches and you have a nice knack for displays with them! I also have my baby shoes under a small cloche, I'll show mine next time. I found a really neat cloche while on vacation, but since we just returned I don't have time to create something yet, so I re-posted mine.

So far, I like what you have done with your cloches the best. I too want a wire cloche real bad. But can't afford one. Boo hoo! I just adore your cloche with the baby shoes. Just too sweet. Thanks for sharing your fabulous cloches. I may have to steal an idea or two or three. Hope you don't mind.

Heather said...

You have a very nice group of cloches...your vignettes are wonderful to look at.

Leann said...

Oh my word, thanks so much for the lovely photos. I've found so many great ideas. I didn't know there was a cloche party. My favorite is the one with your baby shoes!!!

Thanks for stopping by last week. I haven't been feeling well and am just now returning visits.

Enjoy your day!

The grandmother in me just loves those baby shoes! All your cloche display is lovely!

Desires of the Heart said...

Hi Ceekay! Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your cloches too! The one with all the baby items, is such a good idea, and I love the black one you found at Ross. You asked about my little dolls, and bears, they are all individually collected and some I made. One day I thought they would look so cute all together in my little chair. I am a miniaturist and love all things small! Have a great weekend! Linda

Lady Katherine said...

I love the tea cups stacked, the rooster Yes, I adore! They all great! I wish I had a wire one too!

I love how you display your treasured keepsakes in your cloche. So often people keep them in a box where they are not seen.
