A Hint of Fall with a Couple of Old Cloches

My Grandmother's cloche is a favorite of mine.  She was such a good cook and I am reminded of all the yummy things she used to bake!  While I inherited this cloche, I did not inherit the gift of baking!
On to the porch for a little afternoon snack...
This little wire cloche on the porch covers a mason jar full of acorns and a candle.
It was such a beautiful morning, I enjoyed the same spot the next morning with a warm cup of tea.

I am joining the gracious hostess, Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her Cloche Party! 
 She has such beautiful decorations!  I am always inspired! 
Thank you, Marty!

I join these weekly parties here!

Very pretty cloches! I love the wicker base for your first cloche and the wire cloche is so cute!

Love the willow stand that your inherited cloche sits on. Love the stick or whatever it is made of pumpkin. I have been looking at those. Can you tell me where the stand came from.

You have some beautiful things! I love the wicker cake stand, that is fantastic! I also spied what looks to be a marble pedestal bowl on your coffee table, that looks neat too! Great job!

Oh how lovely. Your cloche is wonderful and your wicker stand is just so unique and stunning. I love the wicker pumpkin inside too, what a pretty display. The chicken wire cloche is beautiful with the vines twined in it. You have such beautiful pictures too. Thank so much for linking to the party. Fabulous eye candy and inspiration. Hugs, Marty

Krista@thegatheringplacedesign said...

Beautifully done. Love the sentimental value of that lovely cloche. There is that porch again with the amazing view!

Cabin and Cottage said...

Well I just love your displays and all your delicious pictures! This could all move right in and m ake itself at home in my place. I'm just crazy for nature inspired decorating! Glad I stopped by!

Denise said...

I am always impressed by your artistic flair of displaying. You are inspiring me to think of using cloches more. That would be a good way to display a few things I love without my mischievous cats being able to play with them. Your grandmother's cloche is wonderful. I'm so glad you are using and enjoying it! The wire cloche is lovely, too. Did you embellish it or did it come that way?

Thanks so much for joining my Porch and Garden party!!! Your posts are always a treat.

I love the mason jar under the cloche. Just wish I knew where you get that one from? I'll be following. Loved looking.

Christie said...

I can not remember where I purchased the wire cloche. I have had it for a long time; however, I did see some larger ones at Homegoods for covering plates...same chicken wire! Thanks!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

I like your cloches! They are quite interesting with different textures than the traditional glass!

We Three Smiths + 1 said...

Love it! So, so cute!

Maggie B said...

Popped over from Marty's cloche party and had to tell you that I think all your cloche arrangements are stunning. Beautiful vignettes, and the table outside, is so inviting. What a lovely place to sit and enjoy afternoon tea.

Love your French wire cloche- it's so easy to just plunk a jar under an open cloche and burn the candle. I used the same idea last year for a Christmas themed cloche. Your Grandmother's cloche must be very special to you. I like the wicker stand you have it elevated upon.
Lovely all....

I have never seen a woven pedestal before and as a weaver I have to say, I want one. That is beautiful and natural. I also am in love with your wire cloche. Thank you so much for sharing all your beauty with us, Char
