Cloche Party!

Oh you will want to join us at Marty's for the long awaited Cloche party. Although I am still tweaking, I wanted to play!

I decided to do some of my Nativities together on the buffet in the Living Room.







I have always loved this Mary and Joseph with their hanging legs. I placed them on a New Testament from the Holy Land


I put this dingle dangle cake plate with a cover to hold some ornies.

Yes, my colors in the Family room are gold, red and black.


My Cooking Santa....he had to come out and play....

Inside the wire cloche are my cookie cutters that I used when I was a child.


A good ole Apothecary jar....filled with the red, gold and black ornies again!


Everyone must have a glittery Merry Christmas!!

Hi CeeKay,

That is the sweetest little Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus! So unusual and precious. I also love the other statuette as well...all nativity scenes are so special, and there are so many variations, you can't have too many.

Looks like you've got a great start on your decorating...when are you going to show your black Christmas tree? I'm curious to see what you'll do with it!

God bless,

Mary

Sarah said...

Ceekay, these are all lovely ideas. You are way ahead of me. I need to pull out the one thing I think will qualify as a cloche and get some photos posted so I can join the party. Thanks for sharing you sweet nativities. Also like the cookie cutters from you childhood under the wire cloche. I have the cutters from my youth as well. It's fun to have these little bits of our past hanging around. LOL
Hope you are doing well and feeling good these days. I think of you often.....Sarah

Hi there! My first time to see you and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I definitely believe in having a glittery Christmas!! I'm crazy about cloches so I loved seeing yours - amazing how everything looks better and more interesting under a cloche! I loved that you used the Holy Land New Testament for the cute Mary and Joseph to sit on.

I looked back at some previous posts and they convinced me to follow your blog so I don't miss a thing! (I even enjoyed seeing the black tree - when lit up, with all the red, it is really glorious - who knew?!!)

Get extra rest and I'll be asking our wonderful Lord to give you extra strength and energy...

Cynthia K.(Beauty and Blessings)

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

Ha, ha! I got myself confused when I clicked on your post. We have the same background and I thought I had hit my own. LOL Oh, well! Great minds think alike, right? I enjoyed seeing all of your cloches. I have 2 and need to get a post out on those! Hope to visit again soon!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

They are all pretty - you did good. It would be hard to pick a favorite.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Sweetie...
Everything looks positively beautiful. I love your cookie cutters under the wire cloche. How precious is that to have for each holiday. And they were yours as a child. I so love that.

The nativity scene is so serene. I love the colors. That is just beautiful.

I love the dingle dangle one that has fruit under it also. I can't believe you haven't painted it pink or red. Is that a thought I hear?

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cloche ideas with me today.

Please stop by and let me share my cloche ideas with you. I love it when you do sweetie.

Country hugs...Sherry

CeeKay, Sorry to be so late getting over here- I am rushing around like a chicken w/its head cut off trying to get this house into shape by Sat. when the kid gets home. whew... it's been a chore. I absolutely love your nativities in the living room, both under glass and not. And that cooking Santa is precious. Hope you are feeling much better after your ordeal. The ER is no fun, at all. Take care, okay?
~Sue
