Christmas In July

There are so many fun parties and Christmas in July is here, so of course I had to join.  Here are a few of the vignettes I had last Christmas.

  Since my kitchen is where I spend most of my time, this is the place I like to decorate first.  My favorite cloche is decorated with a few toys and sits beside my Raggedy Santa.  Fun vignette for the children.

Christmas ornaments are the perfect size.

A sleigh filled with poinsettas, pinecones and berries adds a little of the season to the island.

More pinecones and berries next to some roosters for a country look.

My favorite of all is a Nativity Scene under a cloche on the dining room table.  

I am joining the following parties:
 Debbie @ Confessions of a Plate Addict for the Cowgirl Up Christmas In July Party

  Don't forget tonight I will have up the SUMMER CLOCHE PARTY.  It is going to replace our regular TTT this week.  Can't wait, see you there.


  1. Hi Marty,
    Your cloche is adorable. There are a number of Christmas in July parties and I have joined one too but with a different Debbie and on my Christmas Pudding blog.
    I have my cloche post up already for your party this evening. Have a wonderful day.


  2. See you for the cloche party, Marty! Merry Christmas in July. xo

  3. Great vignettes, Marty! Yes, Christmas oraments! What a great idea to use under a cloche. I'm going to have to pin that one because I'll never remember come the end of November!

  4. Marty,
    I love all of your Christmas in July vignettes!!! The Nativity has to be my very favorite!!! Thanks for inspiring us all to join in or at least visit the Christmas in July events!!!

  5. Marty,

    I am so excited about the cloche party tonight! What time does it start! My cloche and I will be there!


    1. I will have the post up about 2. Can't wait. Hugs, Marty

  6. Marty, I LOVE all the Christmas! I am really in need of some cool weather to go with the pretty decorations, too! Thanks so much for joining us at Christmas in July!...hugs...Debbie
    PS...I have my cloche ready! :-)

  7. I was just thinking about the holidays this morning. Your Christmas decor is lovely. I especially like the nativity scene.


  8. Marty, Love your Christmas in July post. I am also having a Christmas in July celebration that has been going on the entire month over @ my Christmas blog. I would love to link this post up to the list of those celebrating Christmas in July on my Side bar. Let me know if it would be okay. All I ask is a shout out about the celebration going on over at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas....


  9. Beautiful cloche vignettes Marty! Thank you so much, you just gave me ideas for this C'mas coming to use my cloches for the holidays too! Loving the sleigh and the little figrine next to it too. CAN'T WAIT TO JOIN THE PARTY TONIGHT!! Thanks in advance lovely lady!

  10. I agree with you, Marty. My favorite is the nativity under the cloche!

  11. As soon as I heard you were having this party, I went on the search for a cloche, because I have never owned one. I was hoping to have it by this time, but I couldn't find on at GW or Hob Lob or Michaels that I liked. So as of today, I have ordered two, one from e-bay and one from Amazon, so I will be ready to play at your party next time! Until then, I have to figure out how to link up to these parties, and apparently, link back, to give credit. I don't know these procedures, so I have not joined TTT yet. But I'm getting there. Thanks, Marty, for this party. I learned of some more great sites out there. Judy @ A Place to Gather

  12. Marty,
    Thanks so much for participating in the Celebration of Christmas in July over at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!
    It was such fun, wasn't it?
    I will be leaving the links on my Side Bar until October.
    Hopefully, next year I will be organized enough to do a Christmas in July Linky Party!
    Thanks again!
