So, without further adieu, Welcome to Marty's Cloche Party!
Several of the lovely blogs I read have cloche collections, which I've drooled over on numerous occasions. After seeing all the marvelous vignettes that I could create if only I had a cloche, I was on a mission to find one. Unfortunately I wasn't able to locate one until Christmas was over, but what a perfect cloche I found. I was in Pier 1 looking at Christmas ornaments when I suddenly spied the cloche. I had to move tables and chairs and it was look out for anyone who got in my way! That baby was coming with me! Once I got it home, all my grand ideas fled. Oh my, what do I do with it now? I tried a little of this, nope, and a little of that, nope... Then I found a sweet little cake pedestal at Marshall's. It fit very well and the elevation made it seem more important. It lives on the piano and I usually rotate figurines in it. I'm sure all the creative ideas shared at the party will inspire new wonderful vignettes!

My first Pier 1 cloche has a sweet humming bird figurine in it. (I have the hardest time with glare when I try to photograph a cloche. I think it's time for a new camera.)
The little mini cloche covers fresh plums and sits on a sweet little blue and white stripe plate that I found at a thrift store a few years ago.
My latest treasure! I've looked at the wire cage/cloches at Michael's for several months and finally bought one. It's just so sweet with the little bird on top. I bought 3 daisies to use with a candle in it. It's just too cute. (I hope you think so too!)
A last look.
