It’s a Cloche Party at Marty’s!!!

134127136 135128 133131     

Hi everyone! I have been a little MIA this week due to some computer issues! I am currently

blogging on my kids computer…they are thrilled;)! I will be visiting you all and trying to catch

up over the next couple of days…please forgive me!

Now…on to the fun stuff! I am partying today with the darling Marty at A Stroll Through Life!

She is having another wonderful cloche party…too fun! Believe it or not I have very few

cloches as you can tell from the photos…I am working on remedying this but for now this is

it! The one with the bunny is from my favorite store in Fredericksburg, Texas and the other

one is from a darling shop here in Dallas called Sample House! I hope you can see the design

in the pics…it really is cute! The cake dome is…you guessed it…MacKenzie Childs. I know…

you’re shocked;)! It is one of my favorite pieces…I thought it looked pretty with the cloches so

I just threw it in for good measure…sssshhhh don’t tell anyone;)!

I hope everyone had a wonderful week! I will be around to say HI as soon as I can! Don’t

forget to stop by the party and say hello!

Lots of Love!!!

Cathy

All your cloches are lovely, Cathy! And yes. You had to put your MC cake dome in there.She is quite the beauty and she would have been so lonely by herself.:)

Cathy, I hate to have problems with the computer. I love your cloches. They look like they are hand painted and I have not seen any done like that before. Love the McKenzie Childs cake plate.

When you eat a melon and try to blog at the same time you spell "darling" incorrectly! olive

Rettabug said...

These are just wonderful, Cathy...esp. the MC one! Beautifully displayed, too. You have the knack, for sure!

Thanks for your sweet compliments on mine but I must admit, I just copied from Debbie. Nothing original about it.

fondly,
Rett

I love cloches and yours are very pretty!

Computers are a necessary evil. Mine has been extremely slow lately and I'm not sure whether it's the computer or blogger.

Enjoy your weekend.

I hope your computer is fixed soon-what a pain that must be.

I have been MIA too-my kid's school needed an English teacher for a term and I offered to help in a part-time capacity. I have just finished my 1st week-9 weeks to go! Phew, I hope I last!

Take care and best wishes for a lovely weekend,
Natasha.

It's so pretty cathy!! Enjoy your weekend!

Kristens Creations said...

Love your cloches Cathy!! You just have the prettiest things!

I am making several new items, there might be something you will like...hoping to list them this weekend.

I don't know what my problem has been this summer, I just don't have been so unmotivated!I'm hoping that will change soon because I need to be working on fall and Christmas. I've really got to get it together...lol.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and staying cool. I know it's hot where you are, Sherry (friend in Dallas) says she can only go out in the morning or at night. That's how it is here too.

Take care and stay cool, Kristen
