Bye Bye Birdie. . .Cloche Party

For a few months now most of my cloches have been added to my bird vignettes.

Before we know it, summer will be here.

This week I will be pulling out my poppy décor.   My poppies always bloom right around Memorial Day.  Things are a little later this year.  They are full of buds, but not sure they will make their debut in time.

I thought I would share with you my sweet tweets.  Sme of the cloches will remain the same while others will be filled with summer décor.

Pretty pink depression glass teacups hold a tiny nest on a shelf in my living room.

A pedestal nest with pretty pastel eggs hides under my large bell cloche.  Mama bird is wanting to get in.

This little spoolie finds refuge under this mini cloche.

The bird theme is carried on throughout my entry.

In the kitchen this royal bird welcomes Spring.

A couple weeks ago I created a new fern vignette on my hounds tooth table.

Although cloches are a little difficult to photograph, they are one of my favorite items to add to a vignette.  Everything looks pretty under glass, don’t you agree?

Today is Marty's Cloche Party.  It’s always so fun to see the creative way others use their cloches. 

hugs,

Jann

p.s.  Hope to see you at my link party, Share Your Cup today.

I will also be sharing with:

Hi Jann!
You do come up with the cutest things. Those bird measuring cups are too cute. You've convinced me I need more cloche's!! I have one shaped like yours with the birds nest and eggs. I love it's shape but it's always hard to fit things in it! The royal bird is coo cute!

Debra @ Homespun said...
