I can't thank you all enough for the absolutely fabulous time I had at the "Fall Cloche Party". You guys as usual totally outdid yourselves and there were so many fabulous vignettes and cloches. I was thrilled to see that some of you that didn't have a cloche were able to think outside the box and came up with some unreal containers. It totally made my day. I had a ball.

I also want to thank you all for your sweet comments and prayers. Whatever it was that I had went away in 24 hrs. and I feel fine. I am so happy, because I so wanted to see what everyone was doing. I made the rounds to everyone and wow, so much inspiration and such creativity. I love it all. You guys totally blessed me. Thank you.

So I am ready for the next Table Top Tuesday. I hope to see you all there.


  1. Thank you for being such a lovely hostess! I am now going to go and check out all the wonderful postings!!

  2. Thank you for hosting such a fun party!! You are amazing going around to each participant and leaving such meaningful comments! I really enjoy your blog and you come up with some wonderful decor ideas. Tabletop Tuesday is a fave of mine though I don't often have time to participate.
    Keep up the great work!!!

  7. I'm so glad you are feeling better. My goal was to read all the cloche posts, but I only got through about half of them yesterday. With my dad here it is harder to find time to read...I saw some really clever ideas! It was fun.

  9. Marty, I was unable to join in your cloche party but have enjoyed taking a look at all the participants and their entries. So many creative ideas and you always inspire me as well. One thing I have to say, you are so gracious. You are one person who hostesses such events who manages to visit each and every participant and always place a comment. I think that is truly amazing and says so much about you.

    You have one of the loviliest blogs that I enjoy visiting and thank you for visiting my blog.

  30. Hi Marty! I'm so glad you're feeling fine again. Thanks for hosting this fabulous cloche party, especially because it allowed me to take a stab at my first one!! Of course, I wouldn't have been able to come up with anything at all, if you hadn't provided some lovely examples first!!
    I didn't get around to seeing near as many as I wanted, but maybe today I can make a dent in them. I'm following a brand new meme --- Comment Like Crazy Wednesday! I posted about it on my blog, if you're interested! I'm going around and commenting on as many blogs as I can today!! No pressure on me to post anything on mine! Have a great day!

  31. Thanks for hosting it Marty! I still need to look at some more. With 3 kids, some hoggin the high speed gamin', and life in general I never get around as much as I would like!! LOL
