Christmas Cloches

Welcome Christmas friends!

I know that for many people it is too early to be think about Christmas but since it is winter here in Australia Christmas in July is very much on my mind! It is around this time every year that I start planning my decorating, shopping and it is also when I host my annual Christmas in July party!

So to give me some inspiration and get me into the Christmas spirit I am posting pictures of my Christmas cloches and apothecary jars for Marty's Cloche party and At The picket Fence's Inspiration Friday Party.

If it wasn't for Marty, I wouldn't have even known what a cloche or apothecary jar was, so thank you Marty!

I only have a one cloche and three apothecary jars as they are only just starting to become quite popular here in Australia and so they are still quite expensive. But, I make do with what I have and am always trying to fill them with seasonal prettiness! I have filled up these smaller ones with my bathroom whites, perfect for White Wednesday at Faded Charm don't you think!


Right now my apothecary jar is full of wintery pot pourri.




But as soon as summer arrives I always fill it with my ever-growing shell collection!





At Christmas time you can be sure I fill it with lots of festive bling!

I just love decorating with cloches and apothecary jars. Somehow, everything just looks so much more special and beautiful when encased in glass!

Well, I'm off to go and visit Marty  and  At the Picket Fence to see if I can find some more decorating ideas. Thanks for dropping and visiting today. I hope that your week is wonderful and that the spirit of Christmas fills your day with happiness and love.

Blessings and best Christmas wishes,
