It's Marty's from A Stroll Thru Life's Cloche Party!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Did you know a girl can never have to many cloches?  Just ask Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.  She's having a cloche party and I didn't want to miss out.  Love that Marty, she's a sweetie!

Did you know that the word "cloche," is the french word for bell ?
I have always called them bell jars.  And, I love them.  I like them inside this victorian terrarium I have several small bell jars and flower frogs and other this and thats.
 Here's one housing a little ivy plant that keeps its miniature form.
                           Don't you just love the green moldy stuff
                                           growing on the clay pot!
I love to feature just a plain shell or sea ornament
underneath a cloche

Whatever you put underneath a cloche instantly becomes important

I love seashells and they look even better underneath the cloche

The versatile cloche can be used to display anything.
Even a birds nest becomes a work of art underneath the cloche!

So let's head on over to Marty's and see what's under, ah,
what's underneath her cloche.....(that didn't sound right either).
Let's go to  Marty's and see everyone's cloche displays!

                                        Isn't this fun!!!
                                         ~~ hugs~~

I love them, you can never have too many, you are right.
I have a giant one in the center of my dining table.
I should have joined the party.
Too busy with the crowns I guess.
So glad you like yours.
Have a great weekend!
