Christmas Cloche Party

Welcome Friends. Today I'm joining Marty for the Christmas Cloche Party. I've been a busy bee decorating and cleaning here at home. I know you have too. It's just so much fun when the music is playing and a yummy candle is burning. Do you know what I mean? Nesting at it's best.


This is actually an apothecary jar on my dining room table. Filled it with snow and some ornaments. The plates on the tray are plates that my son's made at a pottery class when they were little. :)

Love this little sheep under glass. He's in the snow too. That pretty little plate was a gift from my friend Cynthia last Christmas.


And now a cloche...this is Santa holding a baby. Hubby gave me that Santa the first year after Spencer was born. It's very special to me.
Thanks for coming by and leaving sweet comments. Be sure to visit more participants by clicking over to Marty's blog.
Merry Christmas!

So sweet. Never seen A Santa holding baby before. He deserves his own cloche. What a cute little lamb with a red bow. It's looking very festive at your house.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comments. I check in here everyday.

Oh Sweetie...
Everything looks positively beautiful. I love Santa holding the baby. How precious is that to have for each holiday. I have never seen one.

I love the little sheep in the cloche. It always makes me think of Jesus and the biblical stories, as there are always sheep. Can't have a holiday without sheep somewhere in the house. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cloche ideas with me today.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next.

Please stop by and let me share my cloche ideas with you. I would also be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs...Sherry

Hi Stacey! Just dropping back by for another peek at that unusual cloche with the sheep! I am eyeing a similar one...only black...at Walmart, but waiting for the weekend crowds to thin. Thanks so much for your sweet remarks on my blog. Yes, I agree...your nandina should come inside! I had it at my old house and always used it at Christmas! I'm glad you like my music! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend...hugs...Debbie
