Fall Cloche Party ~

It’s time to visit Marty at a A Stroll Thru Life for the Fall Cloche Party.

One thing I found out real fast is that fall decorations just aren’t in existence here at the little condo in California. We always have Thanksgiving at our home in Washington so Fall lives up there. What to do? What to do? I hate to miss a party. Here’s a little something I could put together in honor of 9-11. A day I will never forget. So in remembrance of that day that changed our lives in big and small ways, here is my cloche.

 

In honor of everyone who lost their loved ones on September 11, 2001. We will never forget!

 

May God continue to bless America and may our flag wave proudly over the land of the free!

Now to see lots of great Fall Cloches visit Marty here.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

A Cloche Party!

Welcome to A Cloche Party hosted by Marty at A Stroll Through Life. If you’ve wondered what in the world a Cloche is or what people do with them today is your day! Click on over to A Stroll Through Life and see a day in the life of a Cloche or other enclosures…

This is my wired bird cage cloche that I picked up at Michaels along with the feathered birdie and nesting material. I don’t have a more traditional glass cloche…

I’m only a bird in a gilded cage
It’s the place that I call home
The window’s large with the nicest view
The bars are pink and all the locks are blue…

My 99 cent ginger jar with pink glass flowers in it. The stems of pink and white are from K-Mart- Martha Stewart Christmas decorating stems that I bought at the after Christmas clearance. I’m thinking I should add something in the bottom to cover up the stems… But never mind, I’ll just put my shells in it instead. I could have put sand in the bottom first but I didn’t have any sand so it’s just the shells. I picked up all these shells myself at Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura, California.

 

 

Cheese and fruit in a cheese dome. I could have put a cute birdie knick knack or something like that in it but all my little cute stuff is in Washington and I’m in California right now.

I gave the dome a little height by putting it on a Glass cake plate.

What’s nice about this piece is that the glass dome fits over the glass bottom¬† not into it unlike this dome below.

 

I had to put the dome upside down and fill it with the limes and lemons and then put the bottom on upside down so the fruit didn’t get in the way of closing…

Now say “Bye Bye, Birdie” to all our nice guests who have visited us today!
