It's Cloche Party Day! Yea! Thank you Marty for inviting all of Blogville to this fun party! That sweet blogger, Marty, at A Stroll Thru Life has the links to see a lot of decorated cloches today, and I can't wait to go check them out! You'll want to be sure to go see all of them too.
Since the first time I visited Ceekay's blog, Thinkin of Home , I have been so inspired by the cloche on her header. She has those tea cups very neatly and beautifully stacked in the cloche. When I saw that, I thought it was lovely, and I wanted to copy it. So that is what I've done. I have shamelessly copied the fabulous inspiration from Ceekay's blog! Ceekay, I hope you remember that imitation is the highest form of flattery! Thank you Ceekay. Of course, mine looks more like the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, because I didn't stack them as neatly as Ceekay's.
Are you thinking this blog has become the mosaic blog? You may be right. I've decided that anything I do looks better in snippets rather than being able to see the whole picture! Please note that I didn't use a single mosaic in yesterday's Father's Day tablescape posting. Of course, that's because there was so much pattern in the posting that it already looked like a mosaic!
I cannot believe I'm going to do this, but I'm going to show you why I ended up having to copy Ceekay's idea. I started out with a Cloche Village. Every time I looked at it, I thought "Everybody is living in a bubble - maybe they are trying to keep from getting the Swine Flu!" When my husband walked by and started laughing (I'm talkin' laughin' out loud!), I decided that I couldn't put it on my blog, but here I am doing it anyway. I guess that is an indication that I can laugh at myself, and I don't mind if you laugh along with me (or maybe even laugh at me)! Some bloggers will do anything for a laugh! So, without further ado, I welcome you to the very protected community of "Clocheville"!
You understand now, don't you Ceekay? It was a total disaster! I just kept thinking about your pretty tea cups, and I had to copy that idea. But wait until you see all of the other fabulous cloches Ceekay posted for the party! Now, go over to A Stroll Thru Life, and get the links from Marty. You won't want to miss a single one of the creative cloche ideas. Thank you for visiting me. Ya'll come back now, ya hear! laurie
