Okay, maybe I’m getting EARLY Alzheimer's (or maybe it’s not so early).  Somehow, I got it into my head that the Summer Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life was on the 27th of July! I was visiting blogs and thought, “wow, these people are getting their cloche party posts up early”.  FINALLY, I realized that I was getting my cloche party post up late!  So, without further talk about Alzheimer’s, I’m going to post my cloches, because the party has already begun.
In preparation for the party, I have posted cloches in my last two posts.  In case you missed those, I’m re-posting them for the party.  When I posted my circus table, a couple of people asked if I had painted this cloche.  They obviously don’t know about my lack of artistic abilities.  I purchased this cloche at an estate sale, so I don’t know if someone hand-painted it or not.  I do know that I did not.

Thank you for hosting another of your fabulous cloche parties, Marty.  So sorry I am late.  To see cloches that made it to the party on time, go visit A Stroll Thru Life.  Thank you for visiting the blog of an undiagnosed Alzheimer’s patient.  laurie

The beach castle is charming and your wedding photo is so sweet. Laurie I have an awful time keeping up with these parties and I only join a few.

You know how to party hearty, Laurie. These are delightful. I don't think I could pick a favorite. Each one is unique. I think I've spied a few new pieces of Q around the house. ;-)
This was a fun post!

Debbie said...

Love them all! The wedding is a favorite. I did our wedding bells in a mini one, but now I want to have a little cloche village of other stuff.

Another favorite is that take me out to the ballgame theme.

You have one of the best eyes for display in blog land.

Your cloches are beautiful, Laurie! I just love your circus theme table and how you incorporated that cloche. I think we have the same tall pedestal cloche {with the crown look finial}.

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

You sure have a variety of sizes and types of cloches! I got a few ideas for new displays!

You may have been a little tardy, but you didn't disappoint, Laurie! I never made it, myself. Life is too crazy. LOL I love your whimsical baseball cloche theme a lot! Hope you're staying cool during all this hot weather. XO Sue
