CLOCHE PARTY...and ....I don't have one!!

bwaaaaaa....
but wanting to play with ya'll, I looked around and found this little vase filled with Christmas balls and greenery...
Using this......CAN I PLEASE PLAY ?
Thanks so much to MARTY for this amazing event...

I've noticed that every single thing I put with my canisters from
McKenzie-Childs
looks good !!
**
Also, many of you realize that....
I LOVE POTTERY BARN...
I seldom, if EVER, can buy from them but I sure can get inspiration from their catalogs...
You don't have to buy PB to get ....THE LOOK !
**
Case in point....

...these beautiful, engraved pieces of flatware...
aren't they so so beautiful....and aren't they so sooooo expensive...
**
BUT....just look what our KATHY did....
She HAND STAMPED that adorable little vintage spreader.
I NEED ONE....don't you?
**
KATHY has this delightful ETSY shop with a lot of wonders
that would make fantastic gifts for Christmas...
stroll over and take a look..
and please tell her bj said HEY...
**
THIS morning...cheese toast, pineapple tidbits and coffee...
**
and STILL pouring over CHRISTMAS CATALOGS...
which I am getting by the truck load at this time...
***
PIERRE DEUX
gets my "I WANT" going every single time !!

Oh BJ your apothecary jar is just perfect for the party. I love it filled with the ornaments. Your cannisters are gorgeous too. I saw that someone else used an apothecary jar like yours and turned it upside down and placed an arrangement inside and tied a ribbon around the top. It looked stunning. So see, you really do have a cloche. Thanks so much for joining the party. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think it looks just perfect. It is always fun to see what you have to show us!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Now Bj sweetie...
I am still laughing, what can I say you are as cute as a bug. I love it. You know Moma always says, when you are in a pinch "Improvise". You did a beautiful job.

I love the spreaders, they are just adorable, and I love those black and white checked canisters.

Thanks for sharing my sweet friend. I have had so much fun tonight.

Country hugs and love, Sherry

Everything you show is just perfect, BJ.

Barbara said...

BJ, Glad you came by even if you don't have a cloche....on well life won't stop. I love the black and white canisters. I will trade you for a cloche or two....lol

Have a great weekend, it looks like it might already be snowing in your neck of the woods.

Chris said...

GM BJ, how the heck are ya? Funny I have the same cloche as you and I have it filled with red oranaments. I have been so busy ever since we have gotten back from the summer, that I have not been on my blog to visit with my friends. But, I loved Christmas time so much last year that I'm going to make time to visit. I'll be catching up with your posts later , just wanted to say Hi while I'm having my coffee.

Love Ya,
Chris

Natasha said...

I am sure I have said it before but it is always such a joy to visit you! You always make very visitor feel welcome and "at Home".

Your Christmas cloche display is truly festive and looks perfect. I can't find a cloche anywhere here but I am going to keep looking!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend, Natasha.

The Lucy and Dick Show said...

MMMM! Cheese toast and a catalog. What a perfect way to start your morning!

Kathleen Grace said...

You are such a doll BJ. I want that canister set! I signed up for the Pierre Deux catalog and havent gotten one yet! Time ti sign up again. More stamped spreaders soon,:>)

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

BJ, this is so funny. I don't have a cloche either. I was thinking about posting my ornament filled hurricane too.

We should have an Un-Cloche party! LOL
Take care, Sue

Andi's English Attic said...

I only know about Pottery Barn through the sitcom 'Friends', but I'd love to see the catalogue! I LOVE the butter spreader. Never mind about not having a cloche, you did well with what you had and you never know, perhaps Santa will bring you one. xx

Good morning, BJ.

You made me smile. I don't have a cloche either.

I believe your vase qualifies, and you always make everything lovely.

Stacey said...

I am with you girl! One day this week so many catalogs came in the mail that I could only think of the trees that lost their lives!! Even got one from Neiman Marcus and I've never purchased anything there in my life - never will I'm sure.

I am on a mission to become a better copycat...like Penny. My goodness she's good at it...so are you come to think of it. Copying is so much more fun than paying full price. I just ooooh and ahhh over Pierre Deux also but those prices are ri-dic-u-lous.

Then on the other hand, those MC pieces you have are to die for! They look so good with everything you have. Black and white check is just timeless.

Have you gotten any of that West Texas snow I keep hearing about? Missed us here in okc...I was bummed.

I'm off to Gonzales, TX this weekend to a historic hometour with my dad. Fun times!

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

I love your posts! and your "make-do" cloche is perfect! I wish I had lots of Christmas catalogs coming. Love to look and dream!

The Stylish House said...

Clever improvisation, I would say this works very, very nicely!

Justine said...

Yummy, cheese toast! AND COFFEEEEEEE!!!

Hey, you don't need a cloche with that pretty vase filled with holiday cheer! My goodness, you're making me covet all this Mackenzie Childs stuff!!!

Justin :o )

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Oh, that counts too, BJ! I love piling up those pretty Christmas balls too. Your house looks beautiful, love the canisters too. I know what you mean about getting inspired by the catalogs. They do a fab job with the photographs!

BJ you are so freakin' adorable! I just chuckle at all of your little "BJ"isms. Your cloche is just perfect by me. And any time there is a party in blogland - it is always more fun when you are there~

I forgot to say that those canister are TO.DIE.FOR!

Dixie said...

BJ... I considered turning a gallon pickle jar upside myself... maybe next time...

stop by French Lique and enter my 300th post giveaway...

hugs. Dixie

Joyce said...

I could not play either as I do not own a cloche but it was fun window shopping all the blogs to see what the gals had inside the cloche for the holidays. Now that little spreader is right up my alley so I am headed over to the link to see what is for sale.
Joyce

Sarah said...

BJ, this works for me! I had to really look for something so I could play too. I'm a huge CC fan, so love your canisters. I agree, CC helps make everything look good! LOL I'm off to decorate my tree!
Thanks for your sweet note this morning. ~ Sarah
