Spring Cloche Party

Hi girlfriends! It's time for a Spring Cloche Party over at Thanks Marty for hosting this fun party for us!! It's always a fun time visiting others and see what they can come up with to put under a cloche. Here is a darling little "plant" made of beads, that my dear Mother-in-law made. Each bead is strung on wire to form flowers and leaves. I just love it under this little cloche, and pretty saucer.

This is one of Rhonda's wonderful faux cakes!

This is a tiny teacup pincushion that I made, using ribbon flowers. (Click on any picture to enlarge)

Now, this isn't a cloche, but it's a box! lol I figured I'd throw this in too, since it reminds me so much of spring. I got this idea from sweet Dawn, over at the Feathered Nest. She had this image, and shared it with us, so I decided to make a bedroom scene with it. I just love the little bird at the window, singing "It's time to get up". I took several pictures, so you can see it at different angles.

I put scrapbook paper on the sides to make it look like wallpaper. I love how it turned out! Thanks Dawn for the inspiration.

Opps, I think I got an extra picture in here somehow. lol!

I thought this was a cute vignette with all lavendars.

Here is a little basket that I made for Easter. My friend and I had a craft day, and we made some of these in different styles and colors.

Even cuter under a cloche!

Thanks for coming by for a visit, and be sure to visit Marty for more fun with cloches! I am also joining in on Favorite Things Saturday with Laurie over at Thanks Laurie!

I especially love the purple beaded flowers. Your vignettes are pretty, and highlight the uniqueness of each cloche. Thanks for sharing.

This is the first time I've visited. I shall return.

I love the ones with the bunnies too! I love that floral arrangement in your header..looks like old fashioned double petunias and hydrangeas mixed with ivy..lovei it! Thx for stopping by my blog.

Hi Debbie!

Thanks for following me...I'll return the favor. your choches are darling but I'm TOTALLY in love with your chocolate least that's what I think they are. The one in the lavender shot with the bear in the box & the next one, too. I had a friend who used to collect them....very expensive now to buy any.

We had a neighbor when I was growing up who used to make beaded items similar to your Mom's little tree. Boy, did that bring back some memories for me!

Thanks for your suggestions on finding a cloche. I will check Home Goods on my next trip to smocking group...there is one nearby.

Nice to *meet* you,

Hello Debbie, I would have loved to have joined in on Marty's cloche party, but didn't seem to have the time. Your cloche's are just so sweet and love the pinks. Aren't they just so much fun to decorate? Happy Pink Saturday, Char
