The Cloches of Blue Creek Home

It is finally time for Marty's "Cloche Party". I have been looking forward to this shindig for a while.

Please, come in for a minute and then we will go on over to "A Stroll Thru Life" to see everyone else.





________________________________________________







I feel certain that this was a cheese dome, but with a little pewter rub-on and a crystal lamp base, it is certainly cloche worthy

I think this iron piece mimics a cloche perfectly

My very favorite cloche that Al bought for me from Resurrect
I have it filled with antlers, driftwood, peacock feathers, seashells, and sea glass

I will be "Autumizing" it soon

This was my first cloche
The monkey candle holder was a Spiegel Catalog splurge in the 80's

My sister thinks he is possessed because his red eyes look evil!

This sweet vintage bottle was a gift from a niece

She had it filled with bath salts

***The rest of the photos aren't really cloches...just pretty glass containers.***
They wanted to come to the party, too!!!





A mix of glass containers on the kitchen bar filled with all sorts of goodies

This jar full of beans is on the other end of the kitchen bar

This large glass container was a $12.00 purchase from Big Lots ten years ago

It sits proudly next to much finer accessories

Well, it's been fun!
Let's move on to the big cloche party at Marty's. I can't wait to see them all!

  2. Oh wow, you not only have some gorgeous cloches, you also have some beautiful apothecary jars. I also really love the iron piece that is so pretty. You have such neat ideas and your vignettes are all gorgeous. I know it is probably the simpliest one you did, but I love the look of all the different beans in the jar. Your bath salts jar is also stunning. What a thrill go see all of your containers. Thanks so much for participating. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

  6. I don't have a cloche...now I know that's hard to believe...this is a lady that has a 12x14 room in our guest cottage that is being used as storage because I have soooo much stuff. We sold our beach house last June and I just can't let go of everything...I did sell a lot of furniture...but the accessories are hard to let go! I sure think I neeeeeed one after seeing yours.


    Blessings,
    Linda

  7. Hi Rhonda! I love your cloches...especially the peacock themed one! My chihuahua granddog Paco would love to say hello to Baby Bella, but is afraid that Mr. Harley wouldn't like that! lol Happy weekend...Debbie

  8. I told you in an earlier post how much I love the rub on you put on your cloche. I hope you don't mind I plan on copying it. I already went to Michael's this week, but did not find one I like. Thanks so much for the great idea!!!!(If I ever show it on my blog I will of course give you credit) :)

  16. Oh Rhonda!
    I so love the peacock cloche, as it is so gorgeous in color. Now that darn monkey, he runs a close second, as I so love monkeys too. I love the metal stand that holds the monkey it is so unusual and beautiful at the same time. Love it so much. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and see my cloche I have on display. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

  17. Hi Rhonda...

    My friend, I enjoyed all of your "pretties"!!! Ohhh...I just love that first cloche...love how you put it atop the crystal lamp base...great idea! And...when I seen that pretty pewter colored rub-on...I just knew that I would have to do this to one of my cloches! I love the look of it! Where did you find the rub on, if I may ask? Well, all of your cloches and jars are so pretty but I have to agree with you about your pretty peacock under glass being my favorite!!! It really is beautiful! I can see all of the pretty peacock feathers underneath...is it a doily or mat of some sort? It's gorgeous!!! Well my friend, thank you for sharing all of your pretties with us today...I sure enjoyed them!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari

  21. I have a large cloche much like the one you have feathers in. Unfortunately, it's been sitting in my basement for over 3 years! With two toddlers, I have not taken the risk of bringing it out. I love the pictures and I can't wait to use mine!

  27. Hi Rhonda!

    You have a lot of neat ideas. Your original cloches are great. Truly inspirational! The monkey cloche is a riot!! He is sort of crazed looking!! lol!

    I like the container filled with different things. Functional and pretty...well, except for the seashells, unless you like them in your bath with your sea salt!! :-)

    Great post!
