Marty is at it again!


Its time for Marty's

Cloche Party!


She has encouraged us to artistically

fill our glass containers for display.

Thanks Marty,

for all the wonderful inspiration you provide.


Even dome covered cake stands &

candy dishes qualify for this party!

Apothecary jars do, too!

This little tray has one of the few photos

I have of my older brother & I, as children.

It was taken in a photo booth at

Idora Park in Youngstown, OH.

Cloche party 011


When my sedum was in bloom,

I had
this arrangement, below,

on my kitchen counter.


Then I found this wonderful example of subway art!

It is available for free download from

Betty Crocker Wannabe.

Thank you, Kristin!

Cloche party 008

I immediately knew my glass pumpkin,

full of caramels,

would match the colors perfectly!

Cloche party 010

It is sort of a cloche, right?

Be sure to visit Marty & all the other

cloche decorations at her fabulous blog,

A Stroll Thru Life.

I've also decided to share this on

The Tablescaper's

Seasonal Sunday.


  1. I still love your black and white checked pumpkin!....all your displays are so pretty!

  2. Oh, wow! So many great looksand so many containers. Where were you when I needed you for suggestions? :)
    Love the dried beans and lentils. I keep forgetting to get them when I go grocery shopping.
    I'm your newest follower.

  3. ooh, lovely! i have that same pumpkin jar (he totally counts!). i love the layers of beans you used...i need to try that out!

  5. Beautiful vignettes and I love the picture of you and your brother! Photos just add the perfect touch to me!

  6. I love all of them! I think the dried beans/lentils is so creative. Won't you come by my blog and post a comment on my Thanksgiving dilemma? I need help! Jennifer

  7. Oh I love your cloches, jars and hurricanes. How fun and you have some of the prettiest displays. Now I have used coffee for candles, but using the different beans is just genius. Everything is just wonderful. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  8. Oh, my, everything is so beautiful, Rett. You have such exquisite taste.

  9. Yours are all just wonderful, and I definitely think that caramel candy pumpkin dish qualifies as "cloche" enough!

    I love the way everything looks against the black and white, in particular.

  10. Wonderful post! Your displays are most lovely ... and I love when memories are incorporated into everyday life ... that photo of you and your brother, not only looks lovely, but i'm certain takes you back to wonderful memories... Happy Wednesday, xo HHL

  11. E-gads, I don't even have the time to think about putting stuff into something else. Your house must be beautiful!!

  12. Beautiful photos! Love the colors.Thanks for visting and sharing,Joann

  13. I'm droolling over the black and white checked pumpkins! Everything looks so beautiful. Every year I think I'm going to use beans in a vase or jar and I always forget to do it!

  14. This is lovely...I now have a new appreciation for my cake dish that has been collecting dust in my pantry! I'm a new follower, I would love a visit whenever you have a chance. http://decoratingwcents.blogspot.com

  15. You have some great cloche ideas! I copied the dried bean one & have had it sitting on my kitchen table. I love it!! I put some unpopped corn on the very top. I do love your black & white checked pumpkins!!

  16. Hi Rett~ Love your cloche with the layered beans & candy corn~ yet another use for my left overs :) Your black & white checked pumpkins are adorable!

  17. What a great display of cloches you have! I love them all! I am now your newest follower and I hope you will follow me, too! God bless you!

  18. Pretty, pretty! Love those checked pumpkins!
    Your header is beautiful!
    I am cloche disabled. I have them, but not my favorite thing to photograph!Have a great weekend! Very Fallish here.
    Wish the leaves would disintegrate when they hit the ground, but God didn't ask my advice! :)

  19. Rett, I do believe that this is absolutely the cutest table I've seen. Where did you come up with the idea of those ADORABLE check punkies? Oh, I love them! I just love the whole thing, and if that first container, with the beautiful cut work goes missing, you need not look far. ;-)

    Everything you do is SO cute.



  20. Wonderful vignettes...you're are all decked out through Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by for a visit. "Natural Blonde"...I was actually a dark, dark brunette...almost black hair...very fair complexion and blue eyes. When I started to turn white and colored my fast growing hair dark, I ended up looking like I was wearing a white headband before the end of the month. It screamed, "She colors her hair!" I went blonde to camouflage the white as it grows out. I never dreamed that I could be a blonde, but I've really enjoyed it. Cherry Kay

  21. so much fun I don't know where to begin. Love the black and white.

    Hope to see you again at Seasonal Sundays.
