Good Morning Friends,

    I was so excited this morning when I received an email from Patty, she is joining Marty to host a Cloche Party....
They had me on the word Cloche.
Cloches are always featured in my decorating no matter which room they just seem to fit in.  It is like playing house, always rearranging the displays. (Reading this back makes me ponder the idea that maybe just maybe I have to much time on my hands?

The largest cloche has been on my table for a few weeks,
it's host to a wonderful french statue of Our Lady,
The Blessed Mother.

By Her is a piece of art, by Prayers on the Side,
prayer beads and pottery cross, super size for big intentions.

This cloche is the smallest one of all.
In it is a tiny statue of St. Anthony holding
the Baby Jesus with an antique baby rosary.
In the back ground is a tiny chapel, another piece of
art from the girls at "Prayers on the Side".
We carry their work at The Visitation Gift Shop where
I hang my hat a couple of days a week. As you can guess
I work for stuff.

The far left cloche is home to an antique
crucifix and antique hand door knockers
"Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heaven's Door"

The remaining cloches are used in a
Mad Tea Party, for this weekend, hosted by 
The Fanciful Twist. 

                 I have a sleeping's called pinterest.                            Do you find yourself lost in the images? 
Check out my Cloche Board

Enjoy the day, 
Good Blessings Your Way,  Kathy


  1. Things just seem to gain importance when put under a cloche, but your treasures would be treasures with or without a cloche. off to visit you on pinterest.

  2. Oh my goodness, you do have such lovely cloches and I love that you have the Blessed Mother, Jesus and the Crucifix under them. So perfect. Your smaller cloches for the tea are also stunning. How fun. Thanks you so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  11. Your "HOLY CLOCHES" are gorgeous!! I love them, wow! Would you believe I bought recently the medium size one with the eggs, specially for a Spanish Colonial Virgin Marry that was my Mil's and she has a crown and because of it she didn't fit under this cloche, I was so devastated, lol! Your Vingin mother, cross and Rosary is my fav, I must look into this one to copy you. Thanks for your sweet and lovely comments, come on over again. Hugs,
