Marty's Summer Cloche Party

Hello everyone ~ I am happy to be joining Marty's Summer Cloche Party today. 

These are a few of the cloches I have around my home right now.

My wire cloche with a little bird and its nest. This used to be black and I painted it white.

My Christmas in July cloche. The little cottage was brown which I painted white and pink. I then applied some snow and glitter. I sprinkled some 'snow' in the cloche and set the cottage and trees in it.

Of course, you know I have to have one with teacups in it!

White ones....

Pink ones....

Lastly, my wee cloche with dragonflies on it holds a precious keepsake from my best friend who died of breast cancer; a pink stained glass butterfly. It was one of the last gifts she would bless me with.

Thank you for coming by to see my cloches and thank you Marty for hosting this fun party. If you have a cloche or two you would like to share just link up with Marty and then visit the lineup of participants. There are a lot of great ideas out there!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Oh I so love all of your cloches. You did such a great job decorating them. So fun. Thanks tons for joining the party. Hugs, marty

  2. Your cloches are all lovely, Sandi. I love the one from your friend; such a touching memory. Love the ones with the teacups as well as the second one. I will not be participating in Tea Time Tuesday this week; I just have so much going on in the garden now that I am doing a garden post today instead. I'll still be by to read others' posts though!
    Hugs and blessings, Beth
