BLOGVILLE HAS BECOME CLOCHVILLE!

Yea! Another party! Marty at A Stroll Through Life is having another cloche party, and since you know I'm a Blogville party animal, you know I couldn't miss this party! So...I stuck some stuff under glass, called it a cloche, and posted it on my blog.

This first cloche is just my little memorial to 9-11.






Do you remember the rusty looking metal stand I bought at the estate sale a couple of weeks ago? I told you then that there was something that went with it, but I was saving that to show you another day. Well, this is the day! This painted cloche came with that stand. When I bought it, the glass was really cloudy (so cloudy that I didn't know there was a little candle inside until I lifted the cloche from the stand!) I wiped the inside with a little vinegar on a paper towel, and it was good as new!




This little plate in the next cloche belongs to my friend, Charlie Ann. I told her that I just had to borrow it for a picture on my blog. Sure wish I had borrowed it before the Rooster party. Don't tell Charlie Ann, but there may be a hen fight when she tries to get this plate back, 'cause I think it is so cute!





I guess my roosters have been around me too long. I haven't been able to get them to quit partying since the Rooster party, so I've had to capture them under a cloche so I can get them back in the pen!






Remember, Marty said we could use glass covers other than a cloche? My next "cloche" is obviously a cake stand. This cake stand was a birthday gift to me from my friend, Charlie Ann, who knows that I cannot resist a chocolate cake or even a cake with chocolate on it.



I did save you a little piece of cake. Sorry there's no chocolate icing on it!

Thank you for coming by to see my contributions to the cloche party, and thank you Marty, for hosting another great party. Now go over to A Stroll Thru Life and get linked up to all of the other cloche party participants. laurie
