Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is having a Spring cloche party today, so I stuck a few things under glass, so I could join the fun!



RABBIT IN JAR Looking for the escape hatch?





SWIMING DUCK MOS Mommy and Daddy are so proud of their little fella’s first swim.

PEEPS Peeps peeping out of a jar.






A stroll through the secret garden (Secret Garden painted by Karen Harvey Cox at A Scrapbook of Inspiration).



GYMNASTICS MOS Did you know that bunnies have their own Olympic events?  This is the gymnastics competition.  The judges don’t look very stern with their pretty yellow pom pom tails (tags by Lynn at The Vintage Nest).

The Bunny Olympic torch doesn’t look much like ours.  Yeah, I know, I can get a little carried away with cutesies!





A reminder of the reason for the season.

Visit A Stroll Thru Life to check out all of the wonderful cloches today.


MckLinky will be here tomorrow evening for Favorite Things Saturday.  I hope you’ll join us.

Thank you so much for coming to see Spring trapped in cloches on my blog today.  Maybe if I trap it, next winter I can bring Spring back when there is snow on the ground!  laurie

Oh Laurie, you know I love those ducks under that cute painted glass & the little bunny tags are precious. Most of all, I love the cross w/ the purple ribbon. As always, you've outdone yourself. Have a great holiday celebration!

Laurie-I'm afraid I don't have a knack for cloches, but yours are surely more than "trapped" :) Just wanted to wish you a joyous Easter. I love the purple ribbon around the cross. I am going to have to do that to mine in my foyer! Happy Easter to you and yours!

That Mother duck with her babies cloche is so darn cute! I love them all Laurie, you just have a way with things. Everything is always so charming and fun!
Happy Easter to you and your lovely family.

The bunny gymnastics are pretty cute! And I love the little ducks under their hand painted cloche too. And we all need that little reminder of the real reason we are having this celebration.

I love everything you have kept under the cloches, terrarium and jars, Laurie. You have so many nice collection. I never got my Easter box from the attic (ran out of time and our maintenance guy did not show up) so I was pretty limited when it came to bunnies....Christine

Cute Cute Laurie!! Love all of your Easter collecions. You always have the cutest holiday decor!! Kristen

Everytime you put together one of your montage postings, I find things to love!! The ducks underglass on the cake stand (I think that's what it is)are delightful. The Olympic bunnies are so cute and it has never, ever occurred to me to decorate my mantle for anything other than Christmas! Brilliant! Hope you have a good holiday!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Ah - these are so sweet. My favorite is the cross with the purple ribbon. So much meaning there...


Rettabug said...

Oh Laurie, you always amaze me with how creative you are. I love that bunny with the suspenders and all of your jars and cloches are just wonderful. The gymnastic event is just the cutest thing I have ever seen. The wire cloche with the bird on top is stunning. I love the terreriam also. Just unreal. You are so creative. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

Hi Laurie!

All your trapped beauties look wonderful! What did you use for bait? Easter candy? Oh man, I just got a vision of you as Elmer Fudd with a bag full of Peeps! LOL

I really love that painted cloche. So pretty and perfect for Spring!

See ya at your party!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

You did good! Bunny Olympics ? Hummmm! :-)
Have a great weekend.

Sarah said...

Bunny Olympics! Love your sense of humor, Laurie. You do have fun with all of this. Each of your cloches are dear. I'm still rather cloche deprived here. LOL

Working on getting something ready to share tomorrow for A Few Favorite Things. See you then!

Wonderful cloches - all cute and cleverly done. I love the painted one with the duckies and the wire bird-topped cloche.


Sue said...

I think I need reading glasses, Laurie.... I saw that little fella of a bunny looking up at the lid and thought you wrote, "Looking for an escape Hutch?" ~ get it... rabbit hutch?! I am nutty, I know...
All of your glass jars and cloches are fun and/or pretty. How nice to use the cross and the purple drape to signify the season. Happy Easter to you! hugs, Sue

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

What great displays! Love the olympics, so cute!


Debra@CommonGround said...

Hi Laurie, what a variety of goodies under glass, love mr and mrs. rabbit and the great peeps. The lovely cross is just beautiful. And yes, a reminder of what Easter Sunday is all about. Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Laurie,
I think you should be an Interior Decorator, your ideas what to put under glass are so unique. Thank you for putting my Secret Garden under glass, and mentioning my blog. I just love this hutch down below too, with your gorgeous dishes on display.
