Summer Cloche Party

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Marty is hosting a Summer Cloche Party, and I want to participate even though my cloche has:



a Napoleonic Complex.  Yep, he is short.  Normally we use the cloche for cheese, but today I have a small bowl with sea glass inside.  Not creative, I know, but I am limited due to his stature.

I did use the same cloche to decorate for our Harry Potter party.  He held the golden snitch so it couldn't fly away.


Please join Marty @ A Stroll Through Life for her Summer Cloche Party.

Also, enter my Wallpaper Contest here.

And don't forget:  tomorrow is our What We're Reading Linky Party. Bonnie will be hosting, and we would love for you to share your summer reading with us!

Until next time...

  3. Carina la tua cloche,anch'io a casa ne ho diverse.Baci,Rosetta

  7. Love sea glass althought I don't have any, yours looks so pretty under the cloche! Love your header BTW!

  8. Your sea glass is wonderful and looks so pretty under your cloche. The nod to Harry Potter is fabulous too. Such creative ideas. You said you didn't see you link, but it is there. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  9. I was wondering where I have seen that little ball with wings when I first saw it. Of course Harry Potter. Too cute.

  10. The sea glass is very interesting under the cloche and keeping the snitch captive that way is v. clever.
    Don't tell Malfoy though!

  11. Forgot to say that I love your new header!

  12. Your cloche vignette is absolutely lovely!

    I hope that you will stop by and enter my giveaway.

  13. I love the sea glass! it reminds me of the beach, that I miss so much! I also love your new header! Just beautiful. :D

  14. Love the aqua colors-great party.

  15. Oh I love sea glass. I bet it's lovely in person.
    It's fun to find it on the beach.

    The Harry Potter one is too cute.


  16. Hi, I love that you and your kids are Harry Potter fans, I must confess if I could have stayed awake untill the wee hours I would have be at the midnight showing. I love you party.

    Yes, I would say you have cloche issues. I love your new header. Take care I am off to fix a cloche. Kathy

  17. wanting to join the reading party, but the bonnie link takes me to an unlikely site...
    if you have another link would be great to add my recent reads ") THX!

  18. Ricki Jill, I smiled when I saw what your cloche is sitting on. I have one of those too. It came with a beautiful handpainted cloche which was broken long ago. I keep thinking I'm going to get one to replace it. But I'm still without a cloche other than one small cupcake cloche. I had to use a friend's to join the party this time.
    Like the idea of the sea glass, and your new header is fabulous. I'm admiring those Taylor pieces.

  19. Hi, Ricki pretty these all are. You are so good at this kind of thing.
    I have no cloches so didn't join in this year.:)
    hugs, bj

  20. OOO, and I LOVE your header..tell us about it?
