~TO CLOCHE OR NOT TO CLOCHE...~

Fool that I am, I am joining Marty's Cloche party at A STROLL THRU LIFE.
You see, I am only doing this because I want to be where the action is..and I really could not think of anything to blog about..EXCEPT THE HEAT! Yeah! THE HEAT and who wants to hear about the HEAT! So...

I put my tiny faux cake in my sweet Princess House (VERY old) cake holder..I know, I know, it's NOT a cloche..but..I broke my big cloche and the only real one I have has a crack in it!

I really do like my cake saver. And..it's sort of "cloche" like. Sort of...

Now THIS is a cloche. Just a VERY small cloche...so..you know...here it is... (works for me!)


Ok. Now, small or not, this is another REAL cloche. And, yes, yes, you have probably seen it. But I was desperate here!!

I gave myself an A for effort. How's that for confidence! (...that I don't feel!)

Lovin'hugs!
Mona

  5. I have been wanting a cloche but not enough to spend big money. They remind me of simpler times. Yours are lovely. Happy clocheing...

  6. Mona, I believe your cake dome more than qualifies! Love the faux cake- so pretty and colorful. I like the use of your doilies to accent the cloches. I had planned on using one in my dining room cloche, but I rushed and forgot before I took pics. That's what I get for waiting til the last minute to make them up. I've spent the past few days out yard sale shopping! LOL
    Procrastinator, is what I've been....
    Stay cool- I know what you mean about the heat! We have the humidity, though, and that makes it so much worse. ICK We should get rain overnight and tomorrow- but it doesn't cool off- it only gets more humid.
    hugs, Sue

  11. I´m looking for something like that (how do You say that word? Like klok?) because I found an old birds nest this spring. It´s so cute and tiny and would fit perfect in a cloche.
    Have a great day now!
    Christer.

  21. Hi Mona,
    To me a cloche is anything you can display little treasures or goodies under, whether it's made out of glass, wire, etc. So I think the cake holder was an excellent choice :-) They all look beautiful...great job :-) Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs and Smiles,
    ♥Ana

  22. Mona, you got an A in my book. Your cloches and non-cloches are displayed so sweetly. A cake cover is a cloche by definition. I use an old cheese dome and call it a cloche. Love your blue and white dishes too.

  23. Hi Mona, your cloches are wonderful....so, so pretty!

    It is hot, huh? Ugh.

    Have a blessed weekend.

    Hugs, Barb ♥

  24. Hey Mona, thanks for stopping by my blog. It's so nice that we have so much in common. We can be pretend twins. I actually do have a twin sister, so you would fit right in! I think a cake plate can be a cloche, especially when it has a cake in it. It looks so real. I just love cakes and cupcakes. Everything is lovely!! Take care.

  25. G'morn, Mona ~ Your cloches are lovely, the display inside each are very pretty ... I also LOVE the white table your just painted & the plate on it.

    You have such beautiful treasures, I so enjoy your sharing them with us.

    Have a beautiful weekend, my friend.

  31. From one faux cake lover to another, I just had to become a follower of yours. Your cloches are beautiful, but I am partial to nests....love it, Char

  32. Love all your cloches! Cake or small! They are great! So cute to have a faux cake! I love it! Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments!

  33. I think you did a wonderful job..everything is so pretty! The faux cake looks especially appealing!

  34. Mona, put me on the list of "no cloche" bloggers. I only have the cover from my cake stand similar to yours.
    Your displays are beautiful, however I cannot have fake food around - makes me start a crazed search for the real thing. I do have memories of sinking my teeth into mom's wax and plastic fruits (as a young child).:-)

  35. I love that faux cake. Did you make it? that is the kind of cake I need under my cake saver - -0 calories. In Blogville, all of these photos qualify as cloches (after all, I used upside down glasses and called them cloches). laurie

  36. Yes, you do get an "A" for effort and the little faux cake is absolutely darling. Enjoyed your tiny cloches also but I think it must be difficult to find something to put in them that will fit.

  40. Hi Mona, Your cloches are lovely and the faux cake and cupcake are adorable. I have the same cake plate and dome which I inherited from my mother. I never thought to use it for the cloche party...well, next time. Thanks for your visit and sweet comment.
    Hugs, Sherry
