Hello my friends!

Welcome to the 29th run of "Sunday Favorites"!!!

** I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend! I must apologize for being so late to post Sunday Favorites this week...I've been out of town and just got home! I'm so sorry for the inconvenience...I usually try to have Sunday Favorites posted by 6pm. But...I had a chance to go to Hobby Lobby today...how can a girl say no to that? Hehe! I really thought that I would be back in time...ooops! I found some pretties that I'll have to share with you next week!
Ohhh...and for those of you who have been following my faux fireplace project...I'll be posting an update on that tomorrow for Metamorphosis Monday!
Well my friends...have a super Sunday! Thank you so much for coming by today!


Thank you so much for your participation!!! I am going to really enjoy going through your "Sunday Favorites" posts!!!

Love ya'll,

Sunday Favorites

Pre-party Celebrations!!!

Hello my friends!

Yeeehawww!!! It's time to get out your cloches...get them dusted off and ready to go for Marty's Cloche Party this Friday!!! For more information about the party just click HERE and it will take you over to Marty's blog...A Stroll Through Life.

I know that I'm starting a bit early...but I'm just sooooo excited!!! Not to mention that I have enough cloche and apothecary jar photos to choke a horse! Hehe! So I thought I would start sharing just a few with you each day of this week...kind of a pre-party cursor...leading up to the big event!!! Ohhhh...don't worry, I have a brand new cloche vignette that I'm saving just for the day of the party! I'm saving the best until last...hehe!!!

Learning How To Make a Mosaic...

You know...I'm always "a day late and a dollar short" when it comes to getting things done! I've been seeing all of these pretty mosaics around blogland for some time and I've just now learned how to make them! Ohhh boy...I have been having fun!!! So along with a few old vignette photos...I have added a couple of "new" mosaics to the mix! Hope you enjoy!!!

Cherub in an Apothecary Jar

"Cherub in an Apothecary Jar" is a vignette/centerpiece that I did for my Mother's Day tablescape. I have had so much fun decorating this apothecary jar. I found it on sale for $21 at Walmart...it's a whopping 19 ins. tall so it makes quite a statement when used in a table centerpiece.

*If you would like to see my Mother's Day tablescape...just click HERE.

*"How To's" for the Vignette...

*I placed a white cherub in the jar...it's nestled into a white lace doily and some tiny white flowers. The apothecary jar sits atop a silver handled tray (one of my recent thrift store finds). I wrapped a long silvery beaded tassel around the bottom of the jar and placed a frenchy silver ornament on the tray in front of the jar. An ivy serves for the background and brings a little green into the picture. I then placed mercury glass goblets and silver candleholders to each side.

Well my friends...hope you enjoyed a little pre-cursor party celebration!!! Tomorrow I will have another little surprise...so stay tuned!!! Hehe!!!

*Don't forget to go and check out the information for the Cloche Party this Friday over at Marty's "A Stroll Through Life"!

*Dust off your cloches...you're invited!!!

*Love ya'll,

Happy Sunday Favorites! I love the post you chose to share. I so enjoy Marty's Cloche Parties! And I love Cloches as well. I'm always on the lookout for them but so far I've only found one.

What a great idea the way you used that little doily, it added so much.

Thanks for hosting and can't wait to see what everyone else is sharing.

I can't believe I was first...lol. That's a first!

Hi Chari, I just happened upon for Sunday Favorites. I am fairly new to blogging and I just knew I had to revisit my post on the Softer Side of Autumn. Granted I don't have that many posts yet, but I have some wonderful memories of this one.
Your cloche post is beautiful. So rich and detailed. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time looking at it... like window shopping... taking it all in.

Thank you so much for hosting something so much fun. I look forward to seeing what other bloggers have chosen.
Thanks again!

Hi Chari!

okay, now I want to see the whole weeks worth of cloche and apothecary jars! Guess I better settle in to do some "eye candy' browsing this Sunday!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Hello Chari,
Just gorgeous my dear! Your cloches are a work of art! I love all the detail, the cherub is perfect in your beautiful tall cloche and having it nestled on that silver tray is just perfect! I loved this post, and I love it again! Can't wait to see the Fireplace reveal and your goodies from Hobby Lobby. Oh, I love that store! Hugs and Hope your week-end is going well. Cindy

i love the cloche parties and your mosiacs -- I've not mastered those! A great reprise!

KBeau said...

I don't own any cloches (I can't believe it, really), but seeing your post reminded me that I have a apothecary jar that I need to do something with. I think I'll just dust if off and see what I can come up with. Thanks.

Hi Chari!

Love this post and loved Marty's party. I found so many ideas for making cloches and yours were fantastic!!

I tried to email you but can't find your address. I want to post an Sunday Favorite but am having problems with the directions (not my morning, I guess!!). I've done this before so I can't figure out why I can't figure it out!!

I go to Edit posts and open up post. Then I don't know how to get to Post Options and make it today's post. Please help!!!

My email is blondiesjournal@gmail.com

Hello, Dear Chari!
I remember this cloche party!
At the time I had never heard of the term cloche!
Now I am so much wiser, but not wise enough to make mosaics!
Thank you for hosting this meme!

Very Pretty! You really did good if you got one that large for $21. I was going to participate today, but let it slip my mind. Don't apologize for being late - you have the perfect excuse "going to Hobby Lobby". :-)

Christi @ A Southern Life said...


That was a fun party. I didn't get to participate but I really enjoyed all the great cloches. Yours was great!
