Autumn Cloche

Copy of IMG_7022
I’m joining Marty at A Stroll Through Life for her Fall Cloche Party.

Whenever Marty has these parties, I always groan. am I going to put this thing together this time?
So why do it?
I do it, because it presents me with a challenge.
Life has enough challenges. Who needs more?

But this is a challenge to my creative abilities.
And so I always accept Marty’s challenge.
And I’m always happy that I do.
It makes me dig deep inside and reach to a new level.

You did a great job on your pretty cloche! It's autumny and colorful, and yes the challenge is a creative one that makes it fun!

Sarah said...

Look at you! Great job. I still don't have a cloche to share. I say I'm going to get at least one, but then I don't think about it. I've got it on a list now. ;-)

Bill said...

Well, you were obviously up for a creative challenge and rose to the occasion! Lovely expression of fall. Your apple tablescape this week was nicely done as well. I always enjoy stopping by and seeing your creativity at work.

Hope your weekend goes well.

Looks great! I love your fun miniatures!

Sherry said...

That is beautiful. I expected to see an autumn leaf fairy pop out. That was just magical. And yes isn't it fun to reach to a new level and challenge yourself. I am always trying to do that. Very nice!!!

Miss Merry said...

What a sweet little teapot! And I love the autumn scene under the cloche. Adorable. And inspiring. I have got to get those fall decorations out. Thanks for challenging me!

Oh I love it. Your miniature pumpkins, gourds and pitcher are stunning and they are wonderful grouped together. You always do such a great job. I am so thrilled you joined the party. This is gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

This cloche is just adorable. Love the little minatures! I missed joining in with Marty :( I always look forward to her cloche parties too.

How can I join in on Seasonal Sunday? Looks fun!

Hello my friend...

Girl, you were definitely up to the challenge! What a beautiful autumn vignette that you created under glass! It's gorgeous and I really enjoyed your fabulous photos! My favorite photo...the lone pinecone sitting atop that beautifully colored autumn leaf! You are a gifted photographer as well as a gifted designer! Thank you for sharing your pretties with us today...this was such a treat, my friend!

Warmest autumn wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

I love it...what is it about miniature things that we all love so much. I always feel the same way about filling a cloche and I wait until the last minute. I do think it is a fun challenge. Yours turned out beautifully.

I think you did a perfect job of creating a beautiful cloche. The mini creamer and sugar containers are so cute and love the little squashes, Char

Kathleen said...

Great idea! I can never find a group of things that fit. And I don't have one Fall thing out yet!
I will have to be late for this one!
It looks lovely!

Sue said...

Honey child, you DO meet your challenges! The cloche looks adorable- love the miniatures and all your fall colors in the gourds and "punkins." I live for challenges, but this week gave me fits. I didn't quite finish all my planned cloches. WHY does life get in the way of all my fun?!

bj said...

I had to really dig inside too, to play along with Marty. I don't have a real cloche so I had to "make do".

You did a wonderful job with your cloche.

Entertaining Women said...

Your cloche is so appealing. The proportion that you achieved is exquisite. It made me smile...and linger for a few moments. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
