Great job.

Marilyn said...

Being a country girl, the ball jars are my favorites. Guess I'll have to use your inspiration and go on downstairs and find some!

salmagundi said...

Hi Kammy! Great idea placing the cloches on books that match!! My favorite has to be the stack of tea cups. If I ever find my dream cloche, I'll remember that. Take care, Sally

Deanna said...

Kammy, This will be great fun to see what goes in to be displayed.

Looks good and I bet you had fun creating these. Nice goin'!

Blessings,

Sue said...

These are all nice, Kammy. My favorites are the ball jars w/the embroidery floss and the cloche with the stacked tea cups... Gorgeous blue and white vignette. Sue :-)

I love all your cloches, Kammy. That poor birdie, I hope you find her nose, lol. Pretty cups, so original!...Christine

I love the birdnest and little birdies in the stemmed cloche. It really is so pretty. The apothecary jar with the sand and shells is gorgeous. Now the one that intrigues me the most is the cloche with the teacups inside. That is just so creative. I love it. Thanks so much for joining the party. I am getting so many great ideas and having such fun. Hugs, Marty

Mildred said...

Stunning choices for your jars and cloches. Love the colorful thread.

Be a sweetie,

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

I just love the teacups under glass! So sweet. Yep, I found it hard to photo the glass too....dealing with the reflections isn't easy. Have a super great weekend.

Candy said...

I love the way you photographed you posts. Quite lovely in deed and I know what you mean about photographing glass. I'm sure there's a secret to it.
And your pineapple tablescape was very pretty.

Have a good one,
Candy

Hey Girlfriend...

Oooh...I love all of your cloches and apothecary jars!!! Beautifully done!!! I especially like the apothecary jar with the sand a shells...that's gorgeous, Girl! Bet it looks fabulous on your old crock table!!! I love how you did your pretty blue & white tea cups too!!! I think you got a deal on those old canning jars at just a $1 ea....I just love those old jars for storage...yours are gorgeous!!!

Well my friend, I just had to visit your handsome Father's Day tablescape (you noticed that I said handsome instead of pretty...hehe!) I love all the look of the rattan...and those Tommy Bahama salad plates are darling! Now, those pineapple lanterns couldn't be any more perfect for this stunning tablescape! I love them and you got a real deal on them as well! Girl, it's all so awesome! Okay...I have to tell you that I'm just green with envy right now...I've been looking for pretty teapots...I don't have even one and you found 5 for just $2 ea??? That's just not fair, Darlin'! Hehe!!! Can't wait to see them!!!

Thanks so much for coming by...I loved the note that you left for me...thanks so much for all of your sweet compliments!!!

thx 4 sharing!

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Morning Kammy! Love the stacked cups and shell ideas. Very pretty! I think I need to try those for some variation. And yes, photographing glass is almost more challenging than trying to find something to fit in my cloches!

Painter's Place said...

Love the little birds and the nest, but everything looks so cute.

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Kammy,
You have put together some great looks! Cloches are definitely a fun way to showcase objects and I am always looking for interesting ideas. I also noticed you are in Colorado, I grew up there.

movingonlady said...

The cups are a great ideal.
Very pretty.

Really Rainey said...

Hi Kammy! Ok... I'm getting the idea about cloches... Its something glass that you put things in!? Yours are so Kewl! And have given me some ideas!
And yes that Green Bean chicken panda recipe would have been my choice if I felt like cooking...

Have a Fun Friday!
~Really Rainey~

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I love all your cloches and jars. I like how you put greens in with the bird nest. The shells are displayed beautiful. I also like all the tea cups in the tall cloche. I haven't seen one like that in the thrift stores, but you can bet, that when I do, I'll snatch it up.

Kim said...

Glass is hard to photograph. Your photos turned out great. I love the little birdies and I love the stacked cups. I'm going to give that a try sometime.

Maryjane - The Beehive Cottage said...

Kammy, lovely display of cloches in your beautiful home!!!

Hugs!
Maryjane

Brenda said...

I love your cloche displays, and I covet your antique cups! I want a cloche that fits inside the glass like yours. I only have one cloche myself. (And by the way, before you mentioned how hard it is to photograph glass, I was thinking, boy this girl sure did a good job photographing this stuff! Really!)
Brenda

Allidink said...

What nice cloches! I have the Pier 1 cloche too :) Thanks for visiting me earlier I like the wire cloches too :)

All the best,
Allison

philben5 said...

Okay this is the third pile of cups under a cloche and I absolutely love it! Great idea.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Kammy, that one with the shells on top of the sand just took me away to the beach. I've seen cloches with shells, but I love the idea of the sand in the bottom of it. I'll be copying that idea for sure. Since blue and white are a favorite color combination of mine, I also heart your tea cups. And I am definitely going to have to get my old jars out and put some pretties in them! Thanks for the inspiration. laurie

Laurie said...

I love the blue and white china under glass! It makes a great vignette!

Susie Q said...

I LOVE those tea cups! So pretty...yeah, I need to do something about another end table...one in the LR would be a good idea.

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Kammy I just adore your cloches and the way you have them decorated. ~Wonderful creativity!
