Christmas Cloche Party

Hi everyone~ I am happy to be joining Marty for her Christmas Cloche Party today. This is my first time participating and I have a few cloches to share with you.

This small one I have had for a few years now. It's the perfect size for a small nativity or demitasses.

This one holds my kissing angels.

This one is on the mantel and holds a small glittery church.

A little glass house which my DIL gave me years ago looks pretty all lit up for the Holidays and no, it is never left unattended. A topiary jar filled with Christmas bows stands beside a musical Gingerbread house in the kitchen. The Gingerbread house has a doorbell which when you ring it, the gumdrops will light up and keep time to the music while the house plays Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy. It is a child's delight!
Would you care for a freshly baked Cranberry Pumpkin muffin before you leave? They are just out of the oven and I had to lift the dome several times to clear the condensation off the glass.

Well, those are my cloches. Thank you Marty for hosting this fun party and thank you everyone for stopping by. Merry Christmas!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Very pretty Sandi! Love the little glittery house. I need to be on the lookout for one of those. It is a wonderful way to display just a small something isn't it.

  2. It is all SO pretty !!!!! You have such a gift of making everything you touch lovely :) Congratulations on your Sweet Baby !!!! What an Awesome Christmas gift !! God is SO good !!!! :) :) Hugs :) :)

  3. They are all very pretty! I'm lovin' the tall slender one on your mantle:@)

  4. Your cloches are very sweet and pretty! And remarkably clean! :o) A cranberry pumpkin muffin would be delightful! Love the little kissing angels, too. Bess

  5. Oh they are all just wonderful. I love them all. The church, nativity, and the muffins, wow, everyone of them are so pretty. The little gingerbread house fabulous. I am sure the children love it best of all. Thanks so much for linking to the party. So pretty. Hugs, Marty

  6. Everything looks so pretty, and would you believe, I STILL have not one single "cloche" in my house?!! I have simply GOT to find myself one somewhere, don't you think?!.. I DO however, have some little glittery houses, that were my grandmother's! Some need a little mending and extra TLC, but I love them all!.. As for the muffins, condensation or no condensation, they look delicious, Sandi! You won't mind if I just take one of those back home with me, if that's o.k.?!! I can't resist! ~tina
