Cloche~ilicious

Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is having one of her infamous cloche parties and I am joining in with my cloches, apothecary jars and some bird cages.  First up is a clock I found at a garage sale that I turned into a cloche.

I filled it with ceramic letter balls from Michaels.  I think they were either $1.00 each or 2 for $1.00.  Much cheaper {and bigger} than the ones I saw at Pier 1.  Next up is a somewhat medium size apothecary jar that has some moss, a nest with eggs and a couple of twigs.

A tag tied off on the lid adds just the right finishing touch. Next is one of my dollar store hurricanes filled with some eggs from Tuesday Morning and just tied off with a little raffia.

A tiny birdcage {from Michaels I believe} with a small nest and egg.

The cloche I made out of a vase and glass knob.  I tried mod podging some paper mache eggs and I have those under this cloche and added two tags I made.

Finally, an apothecary jar on my kitchen counter filled with faux lemons.

Marty’s cloche parties always afford some great ideas when you are stumped on what to actually put under a cloche or in an apothecary jar.

All of your cloches are great...I can't pick a favorite although I am leaning toward the two fabulous bird cage cloches!! I love your tags, too. Nice touches!

XO,

Oh my! I LOVE all of them! I have one of those clock-thingies. It's got a faux plant in it right now, but I might have to switch it up. I've got some of those ceramic balls too, but they're in a glass vase. I just went to Pier 1 tonight and saw theirs. I couldn't believe how much the were. I almost bought an @, though because I don't have one. Anyway, I love the way you put paper over the bottom and I love the tags you put on the others. Beautiful!

Hi Kathy!

I love ALL your cloches. I think I have most of the same ones in my house right now, lol! I guess we have great taste? The only one that I haven't done... or come close to doing is the one with the corks. I love it, but just can't seem to save up enough of them. I've thought about just buying the corks, but I can't bring myself to do it. :) Thanks for stopping by!
