I Have Some Too!!! Cloche Party!!!

It's a Cloche Party!!! I searched the world over...and could not find an absolutely adorable cloche...or a cloche in particular of any kind...so...I snooped and snooped on Marty's blog...(A Stroll Thru Life...) and discovered that all I had to do was look around my house! I could even have used my greenhouse!!! After all...it's clear and holds things right? Here's what I came up with...
Huge Jar on Cake plate...holds ornamental fruits...
Didn't like it on cake plate...so I put it here...
Huge wire Tea Pot...filled with beautiful foam/paper/spongy wood flowers...
I made this crown...it has an antique silver sugar server filled with faux flowers...it sits on the bathroom counter (for today anyways)
Small crown...holds tea lights...but I like it emptyAnother one the same filled with vase fillers...
In the bedroom...Heavy wire tea pot...small one...filled with bottles of perfume I don't wear...but think are pretty in there.On the dresser in the bedroom...anyone have any tips for the mirror!!! I just cleaned it and can't seem to get the streaks out!!! It looks awful!
Large crown antique silver creamer filled with faux hydrangea and olive sprigs.
The large tea pot to the set...filled with carpet balls sitting on my dresser....is is okay to have tea pots in the bedroom?
A smaller crown...holding a robin's nest from this summer's birds..I've already relocated it all for the fallerizing I did, but it is a shot of the crown!
I bought this when we went to Florida a few years back. I like it empty...
It and it's matching tea cup sit on the top of my kitchen cupboards....Part of a large collection of tea pots...
This also sits on the top of the cabinets...it is filled with faux cherries...
close-up....there is glass inside...pretty isn't it?
Well..that's all I have for you guys...I wish I could have found a bell shaped cloche...maybe next time...until then...head yourself over and check out Marty's place...now that's a lady with some fantastic cloches to share...and see hers, and all the others that are participating in this fun party!
I do hope you all will join me for my Friday Meme...Fertilizer Friday...and Flaunt your beautiful gardens and plants! See you there!

Oh Tootsie, now I think you will get the award for being the most creative. I LOVE all of your containers, and you did a fantastic job of decorating them. I love, love, love it all. Mr. Linky is being a stinker, so please check back in a few minutes and see if it is up. I really want you to log in. Thanks so much for being such a dear and participating. I really do appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

Ohhh, I likey! Love the wire tea pots!!
My bedroom mirror always has streaks. Maybe because mine is getting old. I do wish I could get it clean.

I loved all of your "cloches". You have a very nice collection of items in your home that made great cloches, I can imagine how pretty those will all look decorated for all the different holidays...loved all the teapots.

kclily said...

You have such beautiful things. And guess what? You have the same back splash in your kitchen that I have. Don't you just love it? You know what they say....Great minds think alike!

Brenda said...

All so pretty! I only have one large cloche and one tiny one. But I, like you, made do with what I have to fill up. And that's what makes it so much fun!

I'm impressed with your creativity! Great job! :)

ceekay said...

I adore your crowns...you made them??? and all the various teapots are so cute...

xinex said...

You have a neat collection of wired teapots, Tootsie. I especially lke the one with round patterns from Florida. Very creative use of what you already have..Christine

Sue said...

Hey Tootsie! I think you improvised quite well with your wire teapots, crowns, and jar. What a nice assortment of both. As for your streaky mirror... what are you currently using to clean it? I used vinegar and water sprayed on a soft cloth diaper.(I buy new ones at the discount stores ) They don't leave lint.
Don't clean under direct light, either. The heat of a nearby lamp will cause streaking. Also, the vinegar cuts the windex residue, if that is what you have been using. I usually alternate between the two cleaners. Hope this helps.
:-) Sue

Glenda/MidSouth said...

You have so many pretty vignettes. When I have more time, I will be back to look at them more closely. Thanks for sharing.

Tracy said...

Hello! I know this is about cloches, but I just love your tin backsplash and that ceiling tile you have behind your sugar and creamer is TO DIE FOR! Love it!

Where do I start? I love all those teapots! I have never seen ones like that. Did you make all of those fantastic crowns? If so, you need to give us a lesson. Finally, your kitchen backsplash is awesome. Thanks for all the loveliness.

Ima Weed said...

Take a look at this book, New-Terrarium by Tovah Miller, it is sure to make your green thumb itch. I have asked our library to add it to the shelf and am anxious for it to arrive.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Your arrangements are so pretty. I love what you have done for the cloche party! The crown is my favorite.

Julie said...

Hello! I am still having trouble getting the comments box on your blog to load! Don't know why! Anyway...that is why you haven't seen any comments from me at times!

Hi Sister! Hey, I just wanted to check in and tell you I should be back within the next few weeks. You're so sweet and thoughtful.
Lots of Love!!

Alicia said...

I can't believe you had all those beautiful things just sitting around your home. Where do you shop???...lol.

Please come visit me and see my first attempt. I made a bell shape by turning my hurricane lamp upside down.

If we have a hurricane, I'm in trouble!

Teri said...

Oh yeah...everything is beautiful!! But, not even close to how beautiful you are inside and out. =)

Jane said...

Hi Tootsie! Where in the world did you find that wire teapot? It is so unusual... Your collection is amazing. Thanks so much for giving us a peak...

I like your Florida-bought teapot the best, and I like it empty too.

You did MUCH better than I did.

Inspired Comblogulations said...

Guess what I saw in your dresser mirror....my bed...four large corinthian columns and yes lovely curly cue iron work on top...we're twinkies!!!!

I don't care about the dead hanging basket... I am convinced you live in some secret uncharted place... "The Garden of Eden"...your secret is safe with me.

I hope on this and my last comment you could click my link...

Betty819 said...

A lot of interesting wire tea pots and crowns. What with you and your fascination for crowns? Aiming to be queen and you're practicing? LOL! You're very creative..thanks for sharing with us. Like Sue, I was going to suggest vinegar on your mirror also.

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Oooo, I see you're a Crown lover too. Great job here!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I had to miss Marty's cloche party since we were away. I'm late looking at all the pretties. I think you need to host a crown party. I love them all.

Lady Katherine said...

I love how you used all your crowns! I love the one you made, it is so pretty. You know I love the wire teapots! Just lovely!!!!
