Wire Cloche

Today I have been trying to upload photos for Marty's Cloche Party and boy, have I had problems...I just haven't been able to get my photos to work. How come this always happens when you are in a hurry???
We have just purchased a lovely dining suite and buffet for the beach house (for 12 months I have had a fold up table!!! LOL) so I am super excited. As soon as we unpacked the boxes I literally just grabbed a few bits and pieces I had on display around the house.  I bought this large wire cloche from my sister's gift shop (thank goodness for mates rates!!) and just love it sitting on the buffet. The candles are not quite right but they will do for today.


We have timber blinds throughout the house and I love the way the sun shines through. It is certainly getting harder to come back to the farmhouse now we are getting things looking so nice.

This is the bedroom that  DNo2 and her husband use when they come to visit. I originally wanted just cream and white in here but it really looked a bit flat so I found this canvas with chocolate brown and pink on it so I have introduced those colours. Now I really love it.






The other spare bedroom is the one SNo 1 uses when he visits. The room already had the navy feature wall (something I would not paint) so I just worked with that. I also wanted it to be a little more masculine. Once again I found some canvases which really set the scene for this 'man's room'. 




Daughter No1 has the other spare room - the lovely bronze and navy quilt cover was the start of her room. Once again we had a navy feature wall to work with.



























Overall I'm really happy with the way things are looking. This house is so different to the farm house where shabby painted furniture fits in really well.

Gorgeous. Such a beautiful place and your wire cloches are both stunning. I love the candles under them. I think simple is the most elegant, and these look wonderful. Thanks for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

I'm envious of your wire cloches. I'm on a search for an interesting one for my home. You have some great ones. I especially like the long oval one.

The wire cloches are such a pretty display with your new furniture. Looks like you are having a great time decorating!

That oblong wire cloche is fabulous. I am really drawn to the wider bottom cloches...easier to display in them!
