It's a Cloche Party with Marty!!

Welcome to the 1st ever Cloche Party with our lovely hostess Marty. She is one of the sweetest ladies in all of blog land and you should hurry over and see all the beautiful Cloche's she has created! There are so many talented ladies with an army supply of cloche' s that I feel a little bit embarrassed posting this. However, I hate to miss a good party, so here goes, my one and only cloche!(actually it's an apothecary jar, but I guess that works too)

You may have seen it before! It has a rooster decor hand-painted on it and was a mere $7.00 @ TJ Maxx. I am a bit limited by the rooster but thought I could make a little centerpiece for my table. The cute little tray was a recent find and I added some yellow roses freshly picked from my MIL's garden. My little tea- cup was a mere .70 cents at TJ Maxx and I also added some baby's breath picked from my garden and some red ribbon from the craft box.

The apothecary jar is filled with some wooden eggs and a wooden baby chick found at a local gift shop. ( You can actually see them better in the first pic) The roses actually look prettier today because they opened but I took pics last night, and didn't have the energy to redo. I laid it all out on a green and red plaid table runner that I already owned, I love red and green together, and I don't think I will ever tire of it. On another note, we are leaving Tuesday for a little road trip. We are heading south hopefully to N. and S.Carolina. Although our itinerary is a bit sketchy we may head into Georgia and then back up through Arkansas. The weather is like perfect here right now and so it may seem crazy to go south when it's hot, but hey, I'm married to a teacher and we have to travel in the summer! One summer we went to Las Vegas with 2 -13 year olds and it was a 113 each day! I do not recommend this if you want to keep some of your sanity. But since mine is already a little affected why not! LOL, just kidding( kind of). If you live in any of these states please feel free to e-mail me, I would love to at least give you a call if we happen to be passing through your town. thanks for coming to visit me, and a special thanks to Marty, Cindy

  14. Hi Cindy !
    I love your setting with your A-Jar, so pretty ! Great deals too !
    Have fun traveling....I always love to travel by car cuz you can see so much. Make sure to take lots of pics to post to your blog in the future !
    Hugs ~ Kammy

  15. Cindy...I just read your comment on Marty's cloche party post..and I had to laugh. ME TOO! I actually was grateful I didn't try it! However...I think you could do a lot better than I. I went away just shaking my head...but...I simply don't have that amount of things to work with. Gloria was inspiring...so...I think we should jump right in next time.
    When I do it though...I think I will offer...JUST ONE! LOL
    Wow....those were over the top...
    I was sure you would do it...so I was looking forward to yours. I have a feeling it would be fantastic!! Promise you will do it next time. Ok? :) I have faith in you! :)
    smiles and hugs!

  16. I LOVE your jar...it works for me...and it might not be a bona fide cloche...but I LIKE it. I didn't even have that to use.
    I have a cloche..but...it's nothing special..yours is beautiful!!
    I thought you had one and just didn't want to do it..and here you have this one. Adorable...anything that has red and chickens or roosters in marvelous to me!
    At least you did something...I didn't even try...and I thought you hadn't either...now I am really ashamed of myself. NEXT time for sure!
    Mona :)
    Maybe I will invest in one.

  17. Darlin'...I just adore your pretty rooster apothecary jar...I do believe it's "one-of-a-kind"!!! And I just adore that little wooden chick and eggs...so cute!!! Well, this is such a beautiful vignette...it couldn't be any prettier all set up in front of that big picture window in your dining area...what a beautiful view...sure makes a gorgeous background for your vignette!!!

    Thank you so much for your sweet compliments on my new vignette...you're always so sweet and complimentary!!! Well Darlin'...it sounds like ya'll are going to have a blast! I love the kind of vacations where you don't really have concrete plans...just go where you would like and stop when you want! Hehe! You guys have lots of fun and be safe! I'll miss you! Talk with you when we all get home again! Hehe!

    Love ya,

  18. Dear Cindy,

    I loved your rooster jar the very first time you showed it and I love it all spruced up...very pretty.

  19. I've never seen anything like that at our TJ Maxx...I love that!!!! It makes it so pretty and unique and there is another one with a pretty ribbon tied on..man my 'use ribbon' part of the brain must need batteries..I don't never think of doing that!!!! lol lol Great post sweetie...have a beautiful weekend!

  20. I thought that was baby's breath- you grow it? wowie... your jar is so cute, w/the rooster painted on it. I need to dig out my old wooden eggs, you have inspired me... Sue

  21. Hi Cindy. I love it! Who doesn't love a rooster? I think it definately counts as a cloche. I love the whole setting. After seeing all the beautiful cloches today I know I need to work one into my decorating scheme. I especially like them at Christmas time with the little houses and snow. Thank you for sharing yours today. Hugs, Loretta

  22. Hi Cindy, this is so sweet....just charming!!!!!


  23. I love your jar Cindy! I wanted to participate..but I have no cloche! I hope to get one for my birthday next month! I am in Georgia.. central part of the state... I have responsibilities that keep me close to home lately... (sigh)...sounds like a fun trip!

  24. Love the display. Having the rooster painted on the jar, makes yours definitely unique. Have fun on your trip. I live in southern California, so I'm sure that is a little out of your way. But if you do come out this way, you can take a dip in my pool.

  25. Cute cute rooster on the jar! Just love those roosters!! Huggy Hugs!

  26. Hi Cindy! My eyes were drawn right through to your window behind your cloche (apothecary jar)... your grounds are BEAUTIFUL...hey, have a big ole time on your summer travels! ;-) Bo

  36. Hi Cindy,
    Oh my gosh, I graduated from Whitehall too! What is your husbands last name? Tell him I am the Linda Larson that graduated in 1975. (there was another that graduated in '73)
    Were you in 4-H? I knew of a Cindy from Melrose.
    I was a part of the Northfield Go-Getters and involved in the Jackson County Fair, the dress revews, etc.
    Wow, small world!
    And lots of my relatives live in BRF too.
    Have a fun vacation Cindy!


I would love to hear from you. Come back and visit anytime. Warmest Wishes, Cindy
