"Jingle Bells...Jingle Bells" A Christmas Cloche!

*

*
It's time for a Cloche Party!!!
*
Hello my friends! I hope that you're having a fabulous Friday!!!

Yes...it's time to dust off those pretty cloches and get them decorated for Christmas! This fun filled, Friday party is hosted by our very own Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life. Thank you so very much, Marty...for hosting this fun filled cloche party for us!
*
Now...if you haven't ever met Marty or been over to her blog...you are really missing out on a treat! Marty is just one of the dearest and sweetest ladies in all of Blogland and she has the most delightful blog!!! She will have some fabulous cloches to show you today for the party...so please go over and see her and while you're there...you'll find a list of all the other Cloche Party participants! Ohhh...this is going to be sooo exciting!!! I can't wait to see everyone's pretty cloches!!!


* "Jingle Bells...Jingle Bells" & A Christmas Cloche!

*
Well my friends...I have only one little cloche to share with you for the party today but I would like to show you around the area where this little Christmas cloche resides.
*

*
This is my living room.

I love this large window with the pretty arched piece at the top!
*

*
I have placed a beautiful old cherry table in front of the window.
*

*
Ta Da...A window dressed in all of its Christmas finery!
*

*
Two New Treasure Finds...

My little Christmas cloche sits on the right side of the table along with a couple of my newest treasure finds! I found these two pretty candleholders at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago...it was love at first sight! I just love the beautiful pearlized mosaic glass and just look at all of those lovely pearls!!! I just know that I will get lots and lots of use out of these beautiful candleholders. Don't they just make the perfect backdrop for my little Christmas cloche?
*

*
This cloche is soooo small that it's not easy to find things to put under it. I have decorated it with pretty gold buttons for summer, and tiny acorns for autumn...

and now...

jingle bells for Christmas!!!
*

*
If you look closely...you will see that the jingle bells are resting on a bed of snow...of course, it's faux snow! Hehe!
*

*
A pretty gold satin ribbon adorns the top of the cloche...along with a decorative coppery colored sketeton key.
*

*

*
A French Finial & Christmas Greenery

In the center of the table...I placed my frenchy finial! It sits atop some pine greenery...I added a few sprigs of sugared berries and white pearl berries to the greenery.
*

*

*
A Christmas Cherub

Underneath the lamp, on the left side of the table...you'll find a sweet little cherub! I found this cherub at Hobby Lobby...he was marked down to just $3.00 during an "end of the summer" sale. This is the first time that I have used him.
*

*
The cherub is holding out a leaf in which a sweet little bird has come and rested upon. Isn't this just too cute? I decided to add a few pretty pieces of jewelry to the cherub's leaf...a gold brooch and a couple of strands of pearls.
*

*
An "Artsy" photo.
*

*

*
A Christmas Angel...
*
My beautiful Christmas angel is sitting atop a couple of hat boxes on the floor just in front of the table. She's a tall angel...about 18 in. high! I can't remember where I found her...eekks...having a "senior moment" here! Hehe! I also made a big bow out of Christmas ribbon just to rest upon the lower hat box.
*
I think this angel is soooo pretty! Her dress is in a beautiful creamy white and gold...the colors that I'm using for the Christmas decor in my living room this year.
*

*
Such a beautiful...angelic face!!!
*

*

*
Well my friends...Christmas is nearly here! I'm sending you all my very best wishes and blessings...
*
for a Merry Christmas...From Our Home To Yours!!!
*

I am also joining in with Cindy from My Romantic Home for "Show & Tell Friday" today. Thank you, Cindy for hosting this fun filled Friday event!!!

*
Well my friends...thank you so much for coming by today!!! Please leave me a comment...I'd love to visit with you!
*
Love ya'll,

Chari

Hi Chari! Are you frozen yet? It is really cold here! Love your new cherub with the jewelry displayed. I have some neat old jewelry - I should find some way to show it off. Thanks for the inspiration. Are you all decorated, yet? I think I am done (for the moment, anyway). Stay warm, Sally

Lynda @ Elegance Reclaimed said...

Everything is so pretty! You've done a wonderful job, and I just LOVE the pearl decorated glass.

Simply beautiful!

Thank you for sharing.

Lara Harris said...

Very pretty! :)

Tardevil said...

It's all about the details, isn't it? It's all GORGEOUS! Love the angel, cherub, key, candles and cloche. But I have to ask, did you turn the cloche upside down to fill it, and if so, how did you keep the snow within the glass? I've sat here for far too long trying to figure it out! LOL!

Jane said...

Chari,
Not only do I love the cloche but I'm loving everything in that room!! You have a real talent for putting a room together.
Jane

SmilingSally said...

Omgosh, Chari! You are my kindred spirit. I love how you decorated. My kind of colors. I also use red in my choice of colors but this year I used just gold and cream on my mantle! I'll be posting posting pictures as soon as I finish tweaking it! Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Chari, how clever to use jingle bells. Love the detail of the key on the ribbon. Thanks for giving us a peek around the living room. All so lovely! ~ Sarah

Stephanie Lynn said...

Oh Chari, Everything is stunning as usual. I am in love with the bell cloche - it is adorable! I always enjoy your post - There are so many treasures to see...I love your sence of style, its fabulous! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

salmagundi said...

Hi Chari--- Thanks for stopping by today. You know that if something on the computer/camera turns out good for me it is pure accident, as I don't like doing all of that. I took the pictures late afternoon with the flash turned off, then on Photoscape I sharpened them up. The frames for the pictures were from photoscape editor also - I think it was one of the Cali frames. That's it. Do you use Photoscape or something else? Of course, the sun is shining here, the snow is melting but it is still cold. I haven't been out for two days, but going to venture out pretty soon - gotta have a Coke from Sonic!!! Take care, Sally

Tricia Anne said...

Absolutely beautiful!!
I just posted a question on my blog. Can you help me? Thanks! Trish
