Another "Cloche Party" - September 11 th

Yea!!! Let's have another "Cloche Party". Most of you voted to have a party seasonally, so I thought maybe Sept. would be a good time to do a Fall event. That is only eight weeks away, so if you're like me I need to start thinking now about how to decorate all my cloches and apothecary jars.

If you want inspiration you can click here to see the unbelievably gorgeous participants in the last party. We had 120 people participate and each and every one of them had something gorgeous and unique to show us. Browse through a few of them for some great eye candy and ideas.

Remember, it doesn't have to just be a cloche, apothecary jars are part of the fun too. In the last party we had cloches made out of all different kinds of material ( glass, chicken wire, wicker, iron and all kinds of things). The apothecary jars were also done in different materials. It was so much fun to see how creative everyone is.

So, dust off all those containers and rev up all your creative juices and get ready for the next party. I can hardly wait to see what you create. I will have Mr. Linky up on the evening of Sept. 10th, so be sure to link up so everyone can find you.

See you there. Be sure to post the button announcing the party on your sidebar and tell all of your friends. This will be such fun.

Hugs, Marty

  16. Oh Marty,
    I saw several yesterday in a store and passed them by because I thought your party was over....didn't know you were having them seasonally! I almost bought one and thought to myself,"now I find one after Marty's party"! I'll have to go back and get it so I can join you! LOL! Have a great weekend! Luanne

  17. Sounds like a fun idea! I'm always on the hunt for old apothocary jars so I have a few I could use for this.

  28. Howdy Marty
    Thank you so much for the invitaion

    happy trails

  29. Marty-Hey! I am back from the beach and feverishly unpacking, but had to check in! I did not have a cloche last time, but I will not be left out of the fun this time! Thanks for the visit!

  30. Thank you for your sweet visit! I always love hearing from you. I'm beginning to see fall decorations coming into the stores -- It's my favorite season, can't wait to see what everyone displays under cloche!

  31. So this will give me a little time to collect for a post!

    Vintage (am I vintage?) picture albums are fun to look through. My memory of the early days (that would be any day before today!) are foggy in my mind, so I enjoy looking and remembering.

    Thanks for stopping by, Candy

  32. I'll try to participate, but my cloche is still packed in the warehouse!

  33. Perfect timing! Now I just need to think of some great fall ideas... ☺ Diane

  34. Hi Marty. I participated in the last cloche party but feel like this is my first time actually visiting your blog. :) I am a Texas girl born and raised in this great state. I hope you don't mind me becoming one of your followers. :) Take care.

  35. Marty: Thank you for the reminder! I will get the new button and post it. I am already getting ready for this one!!

    Lou Cinda :)

  36. Hi Marty,
    Thank you for stopping by and leaving such thoughtful remarks ... you're always so kind to all of us!

    I don't know much about cloches ... I'm glad you provided examples of what you did last time. I do have some covered cake pedestals ... and an old faux bird cage that opens on the bottom. Perhaps I could come up with something --- I'll try! ;)

    Bye for now,

  37. good thing it is a ways away...I guess I better get me a cloche!

  38. Marty, I read you comment on someone's blog earlier tonight about your party and had to come over to read about it. Can you believe that I don't have one? I guess I better go find one or two so I can be in on the fun. I'm adding your button to my sidebar in both blogs.

  39. Hi Marty, I missed your last party, so I have to join this next one!
    You are so sweet for having one for all of us crazy bloggers!

  40. The Cloche Party was great. Can't wait to see what you all come up with next. I was AMAZED at all those "covers"...

    Sweet Blog, Marty!

    xo Rebecca

  41. Thanks Marty! Ok I would love to participate.. I finally got a real cloche! My first one and I can't wait to play with it and see what I can come up with for Sept!

    Good Rule Stay Cool...

  42. I can't wait, Marty. Fall is my favorite season too and I sure have enough accessories for it so I am ready....Christine

  43. Marty, thanks for commenting on the photo. I found this photo on another blog, it was posted as a room that went way bad...I however did not think it was nearly as bad as they were making it out to be. I stood alone! I wanted to know what my readers would say about it. thanks again

  44. What a lovely idea. I don't know if I've seen cloches before, but will look out for some now.

  45. Hi Marty, I am really looking forward to this....Fall is my favorite season to decorate.

    Placed your button on my sidebar.

    Hugs, Barb

  46. Marty- thank you for solving the mystery on my musical instrument!! I googled it and there is quite a bit of info on this!

  53. Hi, Marty: I added a button about your Sept. cloche party to the sidebar on my blog but when you click on the button, it doesn't do anything. Shouldn't it link back to your blog? If you have any idea of what I've done wrong, could you please comment or email me. Thanks! Looking forward to the party! Patti

  54. I am ading a button as well about the party...these are so much fun to do...thamks! Cindy ( the gathering room)

  55. Hi Marty, I just posted your Cloche Party on my new blog You'll find it under parties. I loved the inspiration pictures. I've always wanted a cloche--now to get creative and see what I can come up with. Thanks!

    Cathy ♥

  56. Hi Marty,

    I tried to join in your last cloche party, but didn't have a blog and my pic didn't show up.

    So now... I have started a blog, and I can't wait for your party!

    Thanks so much for hosting this, and thanks for inspiring me to start a blog!
