Super Creative Ideas

I had a ball at the "Fall Cloche Party" looking at all the fabulous creations and wonderful ideas you guy came up with.  Some of them were sheer genius the things you dreamed up to use for a cloche.  Here are a few that gave me a giggle and amazed me  at just how creative you guys really are.

Treasures from the Heart uses an old lampshade frame as her cloche.  I just think this is unreal.  I loved it and her wonderful vignette.

One More Time used a wooden lamp shade as a cloche.  Fun, fun, fun.

Ash Tree Cottage uses her birdcage in her outdoor display.  Love it.

White Weathered Hutch found this treasure at a barn sale and created a cloche lamp and made a new shade.    Such a super idea.

Chateau Chic has some gorgeous glass cloches, but I loved the use of this birdcage. Great vignette.

Inspiration Overload has some really cute cloches and she gave us a tutorial on how she created this one.

Penny's Vintage Home uses her Santos.  How fun is this.

You guys are all amazing and you always make the party so much fun.  There were some fabulously beautiful cloche displays too.  I will try to post a few of those for TTT next week and also the winner of the $100 Gift Card.

  17. The lovely blogger women we know, Marty, never cease to amaze me. Now who in the world would think to make a cloche from a bare lampshade..and have it turn out so adorable. Certainly not me! I LOVE Table Top Tuesday..

  18. There were so many cloches I loved-couldn't possibly pick a favorite!

  19. Hi Marty,
    I just wanted to thank you for having the cloche party, and for featuring my lamp shade cloche.
    I'm on the look out for more shades since my customers bought mine. =)
    They are so very fun to do vignettes under.


  20. Hey Marty! Thanks for featuring my little cloche! And thanks for hosting such a great party, so many ideas week after week.
