Holiday Cloche Party

It is time for the "Holiday Cloche Party" hosted by Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/. Thanks Marty for hosting this fun event.



Before: Fall/ThanksgivingPhotobucket
For Christmas: I duplicated the little vignette that I used last Christmas for this one.

I did not notice the beads were hanging off the side until the pictures were uploaded.

The angel is actually a tree ornament.

This is my contribution to the "Holiday Cloche Party". Be sure to visit Marty to see what she and the other participants have to share. I know I am looking forward to seeing everyone's cloches decorated for the holidays. I drew a blank on mine, so need some inspiration. :)

I would like to welcome all the new readers who have joined in. :)
Hope everyone is having a great week.
Glenda

Love the idea of putting pretty Christmas ornaments under them...your tree turned out so pretty...I can't never take a good pic of a lighted tree...have to take 50 just to get one halfway decent! lol I hope your little granddaughter is doing better since her surgery...it is so hard to see our sweet babies in any kind of pain...take care girl and Merry Christmas to you & yours!

Glenda, your cloches are so pretty. I love the angel, and that etched glass is gorgeous! (I like the beads hanging off.) Thank you so much for your condolences. It's been a busy week between having TG and the funeral, so I am very behind on blog visiting. laurie

Hi Glenda,

I really love your cloche display and the little cherubs look beautiful floating in the clouds like that. I must try to remember that for next year-if you don't mind that is!

Thanks so much for visiting today and for your lovely comment. I am going to check out your Deck the halls post now (I am very late!)

Best wishes, Natasha.

Hi Glenda! I love your cloches! And I thought the beads were supposed to be like that! I think it looks good hanging down! I hope you're feeling better! It certainly doesn't seem to have slowed you down any!! You've gotten so much accomplished! Hope your granddaughter is feeling better too! God Bless! Lauralu :)

Oh Sweetie...
Everything looks positively beautiful. I love your angels, especially the one praying to the nest with all the little birds surrounding it. How precious is that to have for the holiday.

I love the second angel also. I love the etchings to the glass, it is so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cloche ideas with me today.

Please stop by and let me share my cloche ideas with you.

Country hugs...Sherry

Glenda -
Your cloches look beautiful! I have a couple that I'm going to decorate for Christmas, they're smaller ones so I'm looking for items to put in them. Your tree is absolutely gorgeous! I hope to get mine up this weekend :)

Lynn said...

Glenda,
I am a new blogger who is awed by all the inspiring cloches I am seeing at Marty's party. I hope to take part in the next one. I just want to tell you how beautiful both you cloches are. If that is "drawing a blank", I am in big trouble joining in next time. I also love the plate the first cloche is on. Just stunning. As is the second etched glass cloche. Stop by my blog anytime and say hi.
Happy holidays!
