I think it was back in the fall when I posted some pictures that had cloches in them that Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life asked me to join one of her Cloche Parties. I think I missed the next one but have been looking forward to this one.
I started collecting cloches several years ago before I even knew there was a name for them. I still can't resist one if it is shaped or sized differently from the ones I have.
Here are a few of mine.
I set up these on my sideboard for part of my Valentine's Day decorations.
At Easter and Christmas when we have family gatherings, I have this table filled with real desserts, not all under cloches, though so they are easily available to all the little hungry hands.
This next one was on my Valentines tablescape post, but thought I would include it here too.
I have been trying to clean and get my house back to "normal" after two holiday decorating opportunities. This little table sits by my fireplace in the dining area with a chair next to it where I like to curl up and read, especially when we are "allowed" to use the fireplace. (That is a Bakersfield thing you really don't want me to get started on.)
The next on usually sits on my fireplace, but since it is covered with my collection of white pitchers (Yesterday, I actually found 2 more to add, tucked away in a cabinet.)
I put it on my coffee table for now as I am trying to do a Spring thing until I decorate for Easter. Now if Spring would just come outdoors as well.
This last one usually sits on an end table with just a large candle, but just cannot find that candle. It is skinny and really doesn't fit over much, so I just found something so I could show the cloche. I really love the way the design in the tile shows through it.
Please visit A Stroll Thru Life. She has a great collection and visit others that have linked to her Cloche Party.
