My First Cloche


Good Morning form the Big State of "TEXAS"

Let me tell you, this state is Sunny and HOT!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I have been so very excited about today.....I am joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life 
for a Summer Cloche Party...

This will be my first ever "link" to a party!  I can't wait!!


I am * (49) *...... and I must admit that until last year, I had never heard of the word

"Cloche"

Funny isn't it?  I am a country girl, but from what I now know....even most country girls own a cloche!

My blogging friends have certainly educated me about these things they call cloches....

(The cloche that I'm displaying today is a solid piece of glass shaped like a dome)

The above tad of info is for those of you, who like me, do/did not have a clue about these things...



I did purchase one and I will be on the look out for several more.  I have discovered that I can do all kinds of things with these glass domes....



Just simply make a few changes, and you suddenly have a brand new look....




Mylee often will say...."shug...I no touch dat?"

and shug says..."That's right Mylee!"

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I have enjoyed being here today and hope to join other parties real soon.....

Here's hoping you all have a Blessed day!

Shug ~

Great ideas for someone who's never used a cloche as a display. I may just try this too.
My favorite is the bird one.
Sweet little granddaughter knows already what's off limits! What a smartie.

Ginny said...

What a cool idea! And everything you put in them looks great! I love the beautiful ball one. You are really tempting me to buy one, but I am not a decorator. I do have quite a few little doilies I could put under it, though, hmmm...

Shug, I am so thrilled you joined the party, aren't cloches just so much fun. It makes everything look so special. I love all of your displays. You have already mastered the "cloche" technique. Thanks for joining. Hugs, Marty

Hi Shug!

Boy, have I ever missed out on things the last 4 weeks!! I don't have time to go back through all the posts, but I can say that I indeed LOVED the last two posts on your site!! Your cloche, it is very beautiful and so versatile! I don't have one, but I bet I'll have one by next week...;0)

Hugs,

Well,I learned something new today.I had no idea what you were referring to.I can see the decorative possibilities with this.

Eagle Altitude said...

G'day Shug, I haven't forgotten you. Promise! I've had a few troubles with blogger. Oh my, today I have clicked here and there, unchecked boxed here and there, and I think it's now working properly. Thank goodness... I may have been at my computer desk all day and night. I have lots of will power and I never give up (well rarely but not without a fight/not easily.) LOL. Anyway, my dear friend, I have enjoyed this post very much, because I've learnt something new today. Yipee! Who says you can't teach an old chook anything. Hehe. Before today, I had never heard of a Cloche. Hope you're enjoying the days and still getting out and about on your daily walks. GOD BLESS! Smiles, Kerrie

Jill said...
