Cloches Fun Cloches


Cloche party time y'all.
 Marty's Cloche Party is one of my favorites of all the parties out there. 
I now have ten cloches and I am stopping at that number. 
Promise.


The new lamb became the center piece on the coffee table.


A tower of flower frogs with an Olive Out business card on top.





The French girl bust on the three drawer chest is in our largest cloche.




joy and peace

  4. Love it! Olive, is that bowl alabaster, or maybe marble, in the last photo. (The footed bowl near the front of the photo.) Beautiful!

  16. I am intrigued by the technique you have used on the two black and white photos. I wonder how you have managed to highlight the lovely bust of the girl? Great artistic work Olive.

    1. Rosemary, I used Focal black and white in PicMonkey. Most editing programs have it though. I liked how it lit the bust too.

  17. Love the cloches, Olive! I had to look at the bust several times before realizing you had used the technique to highlight it. It's such a nice effect!
    I'm drawn to something else in the 4th picture: the photograph of the man. I like the kind of oval frame it's in, although I can't think of what it's called right now. Is he a family member, perhaps your grandfather?

    1. He is my father's grandfather and he is dead in his casket in that photo which was commonly done at that time.

    It's a blog thing.
