Cloche Party

Marty is having a Cloche Party today. Until I started blogging, I always thought a cloche was something you put over tender plants to protect and give them a head start growing. I've since discovered there are many uses for a cloche. So here is my contribution to the party.
A blue and white teapot filled with lily of the valley at my bedside. Some sparkles in the bathroom.



And you've heard of pheasant under glass, well this is teddy bears under glass.
I haven't had these cloches too long. Can't wait to see what fun things I can use them for at Christmas. Click here and it will take you to Marty's party.

** I don't think these are cloches. A cloche should have a little knob on the top but I wanted to join the party !!

  1. They looks wonderful. I've had our wedding cake topper under a "dome" for many years. Back then, they weren't called cloches.

    Maybe, I need another one. ;-)

  3. I love what you've done with your cloches:>) I think my favorite is the blue and white teapot...or the sparkles. But those teddy bears are darn cute too!

  4. You came up with some pretty ideas for using a cloche. I better go out to the garden and wash it up to use one of your ideas!
    Have a good weekend,

  8. You have given me some great ideas to try out...this would be great for the plants I have in our bathroom, to keep my hairspray off them! Way easier to clean the glass than the plant!

  30. Rhondi,

    The cloche over the tea pot is probably my favorite because I just love all of your blue & white tea things!! But I also really like the "Sparkle" cloche too. And the teddy bears are so sweet.

    I guess you can just about change these around everday!!

    I'm happy you joined and I had a chance to see what you were showing! :-)

    xoxo

  35. What a creative idea, the cloche party. And it doesn't matter if there is a knob or not, yours are lovely.

  36. I think you could call them cloches if you want to. Love them all. The cloches seem to make what's in them so much more important. Mimi

  43. Hi Rhondi, I love your glass domes! I keep going back for a look and trying to decide which arrangement I like best but they all score full marks. Can't wait for your Christmas ones! I really must look for one of these glass beauties (I've never seen them in England).
