Egg-xellent Spring Cloche Party & A Giveaway



I am so excited it is time for the festivities to begin.  The fabulous Barb @ Grits and Glamour is hosting a special Egg-xellent Spring Party with 4 fun events.   Be sure to put all the parties on your calendar, you really don't want to miss anything.  

I am starting things off with the "Cloche Party" in place of the TTT party.  I can't wait to see what all you guys come up with, you always amaze me.  Don't forget you can use cloches, hurricanes, terrariums, cake or cheese domes or just about anything you can figure out to decorate in or under.    I have already shown you several that I have all over the house. 

Easter on the Buffet


Frenchy Farmer on the kitchen island

Silver in the rooster cloche

Books and an Armillary on my desk


Then there is one more - - - -
I picked up this fun concrete pedestal when we were out shopping for our blogger get-together.  I think it is perfect as a base for a cloche and to showcase my little gold crown.  I love this crown at Easter, it always reminds me that the Lord is King of Kings.


 Works well on the coffee table with my new swan and the hurricanes that hold some pearl berries.


 I topped it off with a little tassel as the finishing touch.


Ok, now for the good stuff, the Giveaway.  Kathy @ Creative Expressions has a wonderful Etsy store called 
Expressive Creations and as one of my sponsors has generously offered a $25 gift certificate (including the cost of shipping) as a giveaway.  She has some of the most beautiful linens, tags, frenchy pots and other exquisitely crafted items.  I am so pleased that she has offered such a generous gift.


All you have to do to enter is leave a comment.  Winner will be drawn next Monday evening and announced next Tuesday. 

Now let's get on to the party and show us all of your gorgeous creations.

  69. Marty, you are the QUEEN of Cloches, so it is very fitting that you now have a CROWN under one of them! LOL It is just darling, there on your coffee table.
    All your vignettes are so creative & inspiring. I didn't own a cloche till I met you & now I have at least 4. LOL

    I'm off to visit the others & get some more ideas on how to decorate under glass.

    Thanks so much for hosting this party again.
    Happy Early St. Paddy's Day!
