Marty's Fall Cloche Party AND Pink Saturday

Fall is in the air and altho I don't yet have all my fall decorations up, I did want to participate in Marty's Fall Cloche Party. To see all the lovely items Marty has in her home, along with many other beautiful offerings, you can visit Marty at.http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/

I have this beautiful cloche sitting on my dining room table with a sweet mini pumpkin. I always make these pumpkins every year to use at every one's place setting. It's a sweet remembrance of a lovely holiday together.
The fabric for these pretty pumpkins can be any fall fabric you would choose to go with your table decor. The decorations at the top are so fun to use. I love to use a dried cinnamon stick for the stem.

This cute wire cloche is one of my favorites. I just love the hearts around the center. I placed a little scarecrow and pumpkin display inside.
A close up of a holiday that is on it's way!!
Pumpkins and crows just seem to go together, don't they? Another wire cloche, but this one has a little bird on top.....love it!!
See, isn't he just the cutest thing you have ever seen?
When I bought this cloche, I had every intention of painting it white. What was I thinking??? So glad I left it alone.
Thank you so much Marty for yet again giving all of us the opportunity to visit each other and share our passion for cloche's. I am very grateful and can't wait to visit all the other participants.

Pink Saturday

As you know, plants in the desert are fried after a long, hot summer, but I did manage to come across these lovely oleander bushes and they are perfect for Beverly's Pink Saturday.

Both dark and lite pink varieties in this yard.
This plant brings lots of color this time of year and doesn't require a lot of water, which is a good thing if you don't get a lot of rain.
Oooooh Pretty!!!
Just in case you are wondering what I have been up to this week, here she is. A frenchie tassel for a customer of mine. Ya just gotta love pink!!!
Happy Pink Saturday everyone and THANK YOU Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for all your hard work each week. We wouldn't be here today if not for you.

I love your cloches and the flowers were so pretty for not needing much rain. I love the fall of the year and the turning. It is 57 degrees tonight. We have been having some cool nights, but today we didn't even hit 70 degrees. They said we were to get some rain, but it stayed south of us. We like to travel in the fall of the year, but I don't think that is going to happen this year. have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Oh I love the pumpkins that you make, so pretty and what a sweet gift for everyone. The cinnamon would smell so good too. Your display is gorgeous with the toolbox too. Your wire cloche with the hearts is stunning. I havn't ever seen one like that. I love it. Your bird wire cloche is perfect. So glad you didn't paint it and it really is a special bird. All of your vignettes are so lovely. I really love your tassel too. Thanks so much for linking to the party. Hugs, Marty

Love your cloches, especially the wire one. So much fun to look at each and everyone of them!...Christine

Pat said...

Your cloches are wonderful! Fall is my favorite time of year. I am certainly enjoying seeing all the fall decorating going on.

Thanks for stopping by the new Back Porch. I was dismayed to find the old one had vanished into thin air and happy when I found a way to get back over there and try to salvage some of the work, hopefully.

I'll be staying at TypePad.

I love your dining room cloche ~ so pretty and the base is great, too! Your pumpkins that you make are adorable. I like that idea of letting guests take them away as a remembrance. I bet they smell good, too, with the cinnamon stick! Love the wire cloches ~ I have one with a bird on top that I got from Michaels {mine is a shabby looking white}. It has a matching little base and I totally forgot I had it! I could have included it in the cloche party!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Pretty flowers for Pink Saturday, Char! Your cloches are wonderful and I love the rooster too. I am lovin your pink Frenchie tassel most of all! Enjoy your weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

I did not think oleander bloomed in the desert! Your pumpkins are so pretty--what a great little decoration for each place setting. I love your wire cloche--that is on my list to find!

Candi said...

Wow, so many lovely things for Fall. I've just begun to get mine out and hope to be done this week. I don't have near the beauties you do, mine tend to go on the cutsy side. lol

Such a warm & inviting decor for autumn to be greeted with. Love the tassel.

Nancy said...

Hey, Char! Great pics and displays and tassel! We are out of the house on October 7th and living in hotels in Vermont and California until the "date" is finalized for us to relocate. We will take the southern route to avoid any wintery weather in the Rockies. If you have a couple of hours, maybe we can catch a cup of coffee somewhere. Could be end of October, could be end of November.

Sares said...

Pretty tassel! Your pictures make me want to pullout my fall decorations and decorate! Happy Pink Saturday and have a great weekend!

BECKY said...

Oh, everything is so pretty! I love your blog template, too. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog,too!

Love that little pumpkin you made... How cute is that? And, the wire cloche?? YUM... I wish I could find one, but I think all of you clever Bloggie Girlies scarfed them all up. :-)

Huggies,
Spencer

KBeau said...

Things are pretty fried here in Alabama as well. We have had practically no rain the last month. Your fall things are lovely. I do need to get mine out before it's too late.

I love your wire cloches and especially the one that has the Halloween display -- it's adorable! Fall is the most fun time for decorating, isn't it? (Well, maybe it's tied with Christmas!) Annie

Kim said...

Your cloches are very pretty, I really like the wire ones. I also like seeing orange pumpkins (since so many are white). That is one cute tassel.

Jean said...

Happy belated Pink. Just getting around. I seem to always be behind. Hope you had a great day.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Such pretty cloches. I love the metal stand on that first cloche, and the wire cloche with the hearts around it is so pretty. What a clever idea to use a cin. stick for a stem om the pumpkin. I have that same wire cloche with the bird on top. I forgot to use it for the party this time! laurie

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

oooooh! I DO love pink! Thanks for your visit and I love your pretty fall decor.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Loved seeing your Fall cloches and decor. You have a wire cloche with a bird on top like I have ! :-D I won mine in a giveaway and love it. Just did a post with it in a Fall decoration.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

Hi Char, I just love your Cloches! I need to get one. I remember seeing one in a magazine with a vintage Putz house and tree in it for Christmas. So pretty. I have some Glitter houses that I made and some vintage Putz houses that my MIL gave me for Christmas last year. My little treasures!

Thanks for stopping by! Love your cloche displays. The little pumpkins are really cute! Do you sell these? I also like the wire cloche. Have been on the hunt for one... just love them! Have a great week!
