Summer Cloche Party

Happy Tuesday! I’m joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her Summer Cloche Party. I’ll be sharing my apothecary jars too! I have way too many.

Summer Cloche Party

In the Master Bedroom, I have two apothecary jars on my dresser.

One is full of old family photos…

And the other contains letter balls.

On my side table/shelf, I have two Cloches.

My son has a jar full of cars in his room.

Most are old Lesney Matchbox Cars that my Grandfather gave him.

In the kitchen, I have a little Chef Kindle.

I always imagine him brewing up a pot of coffee.

In the living room is a jar full of my… Grandparents…

Along with a vintage poem that I found at the Graphics Fairy.

A large Jar of Shells that I collected at the beach, sits on top of the entertainment center.

In the Powder Room, my little fairy “Not Me,” has taken over a birds nest.

Not Me is always pretty rude and inconsiderate.

In the computer room is a cloche with a little vignette inside.


It includes a small book bundle, an old book plate and a family photo.

I also have two apothecary jars in the computer room.

One jar is full of old playing cards from Spain, and the other holds Scrabble Pieces.

Phew! I hope you made it to the end. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you at the party!

    I DID make it to the end of your post. I wouldn't want to miss even one great idea of how you have used jars and cloches in your home. I would have never thought to display photographs like you have…I love it!

  11. July 19, 2011 / 12:56 PM

    These are all so beautiful, it would be hard to pick a favorite, though I do like the ones with the old family photos.

    You said you had "too many"jars -IMPOSSIBLE. I like how you did totally different things with each cloche or jar. You are creative.

Thank you so much for sharing all of your pretties with us…this was such a treat, my friend!Warmest summery wishes,Chari

    Holy Moley~ You went all out with your cloche and apothecary jar decorating, Karen! Love the one with the nest and moss in it and the one with the old post card cracked me up! The saying is so perfectly meant for ME! LOL I wanted to put together a few more than I did, but time got away from me. I whipped mine up this afternoon, although one of them was simply an addition to a vignette I already had. I am a procrastinator! Thanks for coming by for a visit. 🙂 Sue
