It's a Cloche Party AND Frugalicious Friday

I am participating in Frugalicious Friday at Janes of Finding Fabulous fame AND The Cloche Party over at Martys at A Stroll Thru Life! I will start with my frugalicious finds...

I found this planter in an antique store and was immediately drawn to it! It was just $4! I also found the butter pats in one of my favorite little shops called Esthers. I just fell in love with them and paid $2 each for them.

I filled it with all kinds of glittering beauties...

LOVE the details. The roping and the little emblem...the feet.....SCORE!!

And now on to the cloche partay!!! My glittery, sparkly snowman....

Sitting in a bed of SNOW! btw it is supposed to snow HERE tomorrow night! We NEVER get snow here! NEVER! It is only supposed to be 1" to 2" but around here that is AWESOME!
I'll believe it when I see it...

My rabbit decked out for Christmas....

He has his key, so he won't be locked out!

A Christmas tree...


Thank you so much for your visit and be sure and check out the other Frugalicious Finds as well as the Cloche Party at Martys! Be prepared to be inspired :)


  1. I love rabbits, too, Lou Cinda, so your rabbit cloche is my favorite! Love the planter ~ that is a score! Amazing piece for $4.00!

  2. Silly rabbit...cloches are for drama!

  3. Oh my gosh, you have SO many beautiful cloches. I love the tall one that the rabbit is in. And I love the snowman!! OK - I love them all...everything takes on an air of importance under glass!

  4. What pretty cloches you have. I think my favorite one is the simple tree inside. It's simple, but oh so pretty. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Your cloches look great, I especially like the last one - is that the herb terrarium? Looks great.


  6. What a great job you did Lou Cinda on your cloches! The rabbit is so sweet.

    I have to say I am loving the silver planter best of all!! Is it silver or hammered aluminum? That is definitely a keeper!


  7. Your bargain hunting paid off, and I love all of your cloches, especially the one with the small red present inside. Please come see mine.

  8. Jane above said it all! I love the rabbit! (of course I'm a little bias here!) the santa, the snowman....I love how you filled your frugalicious find with all the glittery beauties! I am a strict believer that you can never have enough glitter at Christmas! God Bless you today! Lauralu :)

  9. Oh my you really did find some awesome treasures. I love the silver bowl, it is gorgeous. Your snowman looks like it is really snowing and your Christmas tree as well, then that gorgeous rabbit is just tooooooo cute. Love the santa, and that beautiful gift under the small cloche with the tiny mouse looking on is wonderful. You have created such beautiful cloches and wonderfu vignettes. Thanks so much for joining the party. This is such fun. Hugs, Marty

  10. Hey, Lou Cinda! I love all your cloches, they are SO cute! And the snow always makes it look so wintery and festive. Thank you for stopping by. I adore that silver container you found too, that's a keeper.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! xo

  11. Oh Sweetie...
    Everything looks positively beautiful. You have so many beautiful cloches I can't decide which one I love most. The one with the rabbit is stunning. He looks so rich inside that glass cloche. Where on earth did you find so many tall ones? They are so hard to find. I also love the Santa one. Isn't he just so Christmas himself?

    Now the one holding the little present is cute too. I love the boxed present look. Is it an ornament? So colorful and it is like sharing with each guest when they walk by, saying "A present just for you."

    Ofcourse I love snowmen so I don't won't to forget your snowman. He looks so antiqued. Love him.

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cloche ideas with me today.

    I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next.

    I'm certainly feeling left out because I don't have a cloche! Yours all look great and I like the variety. Have a good weekend!

  20. Great job! Each one is darling, and I think the silver planter was a fantastic find. It is beautiful with the rope detail and the little feet.

  21. So beautiful! I know what you mean about snow. It snowed here today. Big flakes! It finally started to stick around 5pm. And it snowed last year too. Could this be a new trend for South East Texas? It was so pretty. I will post pics next week. Have a great weekend!!!

  27. I think my fave was the one with the present under it but they all get my vote. What fun this has been seeing everyone's ideas. Oh and your christmas's beautiful.
