Okay so Im guessing I am the only one who doesnt have a cloche in their home. lol      I always see them in all of your posts, and frankly im a little jealous.   Sooooooo in getting ready for Marty's Cloche Party....Ive decided to make my own from stuff in the house. (here we go).

1 saucer
1 handfull of moss
1 votive candle
2 fall leaves
1 glass container
1 pumpkin salt shaker


Add a little bit of moss in center

Place votive nesting inside

Add 2 little leaves as accent

Place glass over and add your accent top

I think it came out pretty cute!   Its at home in the kitchen hutch with the rest of the fall farmhouse gang.

Of course Im linking this up to some of my favorite parties:


Show and Tell Green

Gotta get back to work.......show is in 5 days!   Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


  1. so funny, I was just reading another blog and they have a CLOCHE and I commented I WANT ONE TOO - your not the only one! where do people find these things????

  2. Oh I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. You are so clever and I can't think of anything any cutier. I am so thrilled you are thinking out of the box and it turned out perfect. Now you are all set for the cloche party. You're the best. Hugs, Marty

  3. Very clever! When I first began blogging, I had no idea what a cloche was. Well, I've learned...
