Christmas Cloches

Today I’m joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her Christmas Cloche Party.  Here are a few of the cloches that I have scattered throughout my home. 

In my dining room this cloche is sitting on  my buffet.  


Keeping with the color scheme on the buffet, I used a silver finial with pine, holly leaves and added two silver jingle bells.   



In the kitchen I have a lantern sitting on the countertop.     In front of the lantern I placed a wicker basket that has faux pine and goodies in it.  I tied a burlap bow on the handle. 


I filled the inside of the lantern with a lighted strand of woven balls, greens, pinecones and berries.


On the shelf in the kitchen is my bird cage. 


I placed greens with little red berries in it and added a candle.  


On the entryway table in the kitchen, I have another cloche.  I made this one. 


Keeping it simple,  I just added pine and three red jingle bells. 



The apron you see hanging is another sentimental keepsake of my Mom’s.  It was her Christmas apron that she wore many times on Christmas Eve.


Thanks for stopping by and my blessings to you and your family this Christmas season.



  1. Very pretty! I love the bell shaped cloche with the red jiggle bells and black stand-very festive:@)

  2. I love the bell cloche and the birdcage! How clever!

  3. Oh I love them. The silver finial, the birdcage, lantern and the bells. Each vignette is fabulous and you have used all of your cloches so beautifully. Thank so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

  4. Love them all Gail. The lantern is a really good idea and makes me wish I had bought one at PB outlet. ♥O

  5. I lurve that lantern!! It looks so pretty filled with the pinecones and the woven balls. Just the right touch of bling with the glittered faux greenery. Thanks for visiting. :-) Sue

  6. Hi Gail! Everything is so pretty. The lantern is gorgeous. Love your wire cloche with the bird on top. I have one similar but it's black and now I think a paint job is in order.

  18. Hello dear Gail,
    I'm so glad you came back to say hello, now I will mark your blog and be back again and again. I love all of your cloches, they are beautiful, you make gorgeous vignettes out of everything. After looking through several posts I can see that you are a talented decorator. I am just a "wannabe" decorator.
    I see your son Jordan is in Afghanistan. My nephew Brian Eastham is a Chaplain in the US Military, not sure where in Afghanistan he is stationed, though.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  19. Hi Gail, It's me again, I meant to tell you yesterday before I signed off that I will remember to pray for your Jordan, keep us updated on how he is doing.
    Love and hugs, cindy

  20. These are super Cloches...I really love the diversity of them.
