Spring Cloches

Thank you all who left a comment on my last post ... they meant so much to me.    The post wasn't what I had intended at all.  It was just what my heart was feeling at the time.  I know life will never be the same and I know it just takes time.

==============================

I am participating at Marty's A Stroll Thru Life's Spring Cloche Party.  Thank you Marty for hosting this party.

Now here are a few of my cloches I have decorated for Spring!
This is a large decanter I purchased last year for Jennifer's wedding shower and it is filled with faux fruit on my dining room table. 
I can always quickly empty the fruit out and use it for tea, ice water or whatever I might need it for.
Small green apples I have in my kitchen.
Daisy balls under this one.
So Springy!
Birdies under this one.  I will change this one out to bunnies before long.
My little birds again.  A great buy at Michaels and Hobby Lobby!
A small cloche with a bird on top.  This is my newest cloche.  The picture is one from Jennifer's wedding.   Sorry about the glare!

Close-up of my bird topped cloche.
Teacups stacked in this tall one.  I love teacups and teapots!

These are just a few of my cloches :) I have others made of iron that I use for Summer.

Thank you for visiting and God Bless!
Hugs,
Donna

No one can beat you when it comes to cloches. Every time you blog about them I always think the same thing, "I've got to get me one of those things". I love them all, they do say spring, but the tea cups are particularly appealing, what a clever idea and great use of pretty tea cups!

They all look so lovely. You came up with some pretty ideas for yours.

You have such a gift for decorating Donna, these are all beautiful....:-)Hugs

All look so nice. I really like the shape of the one with the three birds. I did find some at a thrift shop one time, but they don't have that lovely bell shape that I adore. One day when I get organized I'll bring them up from the basement. ♥♫

I love them all, but the one with the bird on top is PRECIOUS...and I love the one with the teacups under it! Great idea! I love teacups and teapots too!! I may have to "borrow" that idea :)

Very Pretty Cloches, Donna!!! I don't own a single one...YET! I keep meaning to buy at least one so I can play along with Marty's events.

I was so touched by your post about your "empty nest". I suppose we all go through it at one time or another but yours had to be especially hard with Amber's passing. She can't come back home like the college kids or the newly married ones or the ones who bring grandkidlets with them. {{{MEGA HUGS}}}

I hope that going through their stuff isn't too painful for you & I want you to know I'm giving my elderly DH an extra long hug today because of you.

fondly,
Rett

I just love this post! Everything looks so beautiful and now I cannot wait to decorate for Spring and Easter with the Cloches! My empty nest is not so empty as our youngest daughter has been with us over a year now. She is dating though and may not be in the nest much longer-ha! Luvu, K

Hi Donna! You always decorate so nicely. I love the cloche with the bird on top, very pretty! The daisy balls are adorable. I need to get out my Easter decor soon. I'm so glad Spring is on its way!
