No, I don’t have any broken cloches to show you.  I did break one recently, but I didn’t think about taking a picture of the glass pieces on the floor.  Although I am no longer joining weekly memes, I still join Blogville parties, and I am happy to be linking the Fall Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life

Obviously, these aren’t cloches, but Marty is soooo kind and  lenient about what qualifies as a cloche for her parties that I’m posting two candle lanterns that I have used to display a painted glass pear and a painted glass apple.

The next two cloches are on the desk in my entry hall all the time.  I thought I might get away with using them as Fall cloches by hanging a Fall wreath over them!
This one protects granddaddy’s and grandmother’s pocket watches.
Don’t you think the wreath hanging over the cloches magically transforms them to Fall cloches?

I know this post really stretches the meaning of Fall cloches, but my miscellaneous flatware, covered with a cloche, became a Fall cloche by hanging the pretty metal leaf from the side.  I was the lucky winner of that leaf at a giveaway at Between Naps On the Porch last year.
I know you are going to be under-whelmed by my creativity when you see the next two cloches.  I apologize in advance for my lack of creative abilities.

I hope you didn’t spend a lot of time trying to see what was under these cloches, because my “creative genius”  was to cover a couple of Fall themed plates with cloches.  The last one reads, “We are blessed beyond measure”.

Oh Laurie, I so love all of your gorgeous cloches and you always display them so beautifully. I love the pocket watches, they are just beautiful and you have such a beautiful display with the wreath, statue and cloches on that table. Everything is always so lovely. Hope you are doing well. Thanks for joining the party, it is always such fun to see your pretty things. Hugs, Marty

Oh Laurie, all of your fall cloches are gorgeous. I especially love the entry table, statue, mirror, etc., but the squirrel, plain plates and ribbons are all gorgeous, too! Happy Fall!

Your are cloches ahead of me!! I don't own one, but I am going to keep my eyes open, I love yours! Thank you for your soooo sweet comments! It made my day!

Wow, you have so many pretty cloches and so many great looks. Love the one with your grandparents's watches and, of course, the one with the little squirrel.

Debbie said...

"Underwhelmed"? Oh, no. Never ever when I'm bargain hunting and chatting with Laurie.

I love the simple one with the leaf hanging off of it. That's lovely! I also love that flatware one.

Oh shoot. They're all great. I love cloches. Don't have one, but I love them. I walked around HL for 15 minutes one day trying to talk my cheap self out of putting the one in my hands back on the shelf. Cheapo won. Sigh.

I want a cloche!

I am enjoying your fall cloches and yes hanging a fall wreath does count!

Cass over at That Old House also wrote about cloches if nobody minds, I just tell you what I told her! :)

I always thought that cloches were hats. I have several of those. It wasn't until I came to blogland that I discovered the glass kind. Sadly, the closest thing I own to that kind of cloche is a small glass plate with a glass dome which I use for a butter will hold only one stick of butter cut in half and placed side by side. Not much you can fit under a dome that size. But every time I go to a thrift store, I am looking!

All of these are gorgeous, Laurie. I really love the one with the pocket watches and the one with the silverware. Beautiful!

Your cloches are beautiful, Laurie. Love what you displayed and how in them. I noticed your silver duck knife rest. I also have a set very similar if not exactly the same...Christine

Hi Laurie,
What a wonderful display of cloches. Are you kidding? Not creative? If only I were 'not this creative' I would be able to join the Cloche parties..I have bought a few basic cloches and still can't create even one...I love that beautiful boy statue..he's adorable..and the plates under the cloches alone are my favorites..even though I love them all!..

Anonymous said...

Hi Laurie! OH, your cloches are just glorious! I love those striped glass fruits - so pretty! Everything you do looks wonderful!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Phyllis @Around the House said...

That beautiful tablescape still reflects the elegance of all your work. The understated look of this table because Thanksgiving is about people. You have created a table that does justice to the treasured china and silver but bows to conversations about memories and treasures of the soul. Those natural elements of the kale and the way the candlelight reflects off the boxes, is too good.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

I just adore your little cloche party sweetie. Everythin' look so very charming and beautiful.

That silver looks so much like the set I have of my mother's. She bought it back 'round 1950.

God bless ya and have a wonderful weekend sweetie!!!

Laurie that's alot of beautiful cloches! And they all look "Fall" to me *winks* My favorite by far is the one with your Grandma and Grandpa's watches....What treasures! I'm also really thankful that Marty is so easy going because I didn't post a single actual "cloche" and she hasn't kicked me out of the party...yet...LOL! Vanna

My favorite is the cloche with the blue and white pitcher/vase with the silverware. Love this idea!

Sue said...

Laurie,I love the simplicity of the pocket watches in the cloche and the precious squirrel under glass. My favorite is the blue/white vase holding your silverware! I have an affinity for b/w. All of your collection ideas are so inspiring.

Connie said...

Laurie - You are amazing with all you decorations. You must have a room just to hold all of them. It's nice to see and feel your enthusiasm . It show in your pages.

I hope you are still enjoying Pinterest and having fun !
