Cloche Christmas Party

I'm joining Marty for her most awesome Cloche Party! Make sure you zip on over to
A Stroll Thru Life to get all kinds of wonderful inspirational ideas for you cloche!


Today I'm sharing 2...

This is my little Christmas kitchen vignette....


This is my Great Aunt's Nativity Egg. She made it many years ago and I keep it out year round ....

It's an egg so I always think of Easter when I look at it.

At Easter I always think of Christmas.

And I feel that's just about right. Because really ...

If you think about it.... You can't have one without the other.


Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas!

Oh how cute is this. Love your kitchen santa and the tiny display under your cloche, so cute. Love the rolling pin and the tray of cookies. Wonderful. Your Nativity egg is stunning. What a beautiful piece and perfect under the cloche. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

I had to laugh so hard when I saw your first cloche. I have the same little bowls and had thought how cute they would look beneath a cloche. I don't have one and just used a dome off a clock I have. It wouldn't fit over the little bowls. Your's looks sooo cute.. I love it.
The egg is just beautiful.

Now, do you mind telling me where you got your butter slab? I am dreaming about one every night...well, nearly. :))

Hi Liz! Oh,what a wonderful vignette you've set up with that Santa! The photo is so pretty, you should print it out and frame it! Your little egg from your aunt is so sweet and you are so right - you can't have Easter or Christmas without the other! ;)
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Liz, your kitchen display is so much fun! I want one of those butter slab thingys so badly, but I just won't break down and spend the money. The little bowls an rolling pin are so cute under glass. Maybe Santa will bring me one. Your aunt's nativity egg is beautiful. I'd leave it out year round too. laurie
