Well last night I went to bed about 1:00 which is early for me, but I was tired-layed there -wide awake, twisted and turned, turned and twisted. So two oclock up I got, went downstairs, got out a step ladder and started taking down my cloches. Put out a table cloth, new one that I hadn't used yet. lot of roses-after all it's valentines-so roses are good. Our house is right on the road, so I'm sure people going by, must have thought I was nuts-in my nightgown putting out glass domes.
going to start with my new apothecary jar, full of cinamon hearts.

this is the top off of an anniversary clock, the clock was plastic so not worth anything, makes a great cover though

this is my favourite, got it at homesense a long time ago and a green cloche that went on the glass plate above, (friend borrowed them and broke the green one). This pink one is on a pedestal glass plate, with a lipe all the way around, very nice stand. An antique cranberry small pitcher.

this cloche is huge and heavy, love it, got it off ebay, three tiered cake stand is inside. The cloche is great for when I do have cupcakes or squares on the stand...

this cloche is different that it goes in at the base, looks like a bell, but is really quite useless, only holds a small 2 tier stand.

same as above

again the same on a different cake stand,
behind it is a new one from homesense that I got twoo weeks ago

the anniversary clock cover on min. cup cake stands

got this one off ebay

another ebay buy. The teapot is chintz behind and I got it at auction

cake stand with teapot, the roses are for valentines

cloches, glass pedestal cake stands and four-handled cake stands two and three pedestal layers.
I went to bed about three and still layed awake until four. When hubby got up this morning
this is what met him, he was all excited -thought I was cleaning out for the items to go to auction. I was lucky he hadn't carried it all over to the auction centre or I should say he is lucky he didn't...
didn't think I had any heart shaped china but found this piece last night so had to show it. The pattern just slipped my mind and it's so common.

this is another new day

anyone for tea?

the cloches, apothecary jar and glass lids alone

and that is the end of cloche
I am joining


  1. WOWZA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OK YOU, my dear, get the award for Most Cloches Ever! You have one in every single size and shape!

    It's 3am here, so I understand the can't-sleep thing, but I think my hubs and cat would kill me if I started clinking glass and china at that hour.

    Love this post, made me grin from ear to ear!

  2. Oh my word, this is unreal. So many cloches and so beautifully displayed. Thanks tons for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  3. WOW! You have a lot of wonderful cloches. My fave was with the cranberry glass pitcher because I collect cranberry glass.

    They are ll so lovely, though. Great collection. Thanks for sharing. Susan

  4. Goodness...what a fabulous cloche collection! And lucky you to actually have somewhere to store them all! I love your design! The heart dish pattern is Royal Albert Old Country Roses...perfect for Valentine's Day! I know about those night too! I try to do something constructive as well. Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  5. You have some beautiful cloches, Betty! I love the big ones and I need to get a nice big one myself. I'd love to do one with some tea cups and saucers under it but the cloches I have are too small. I like to have a variety of sizes, too, and I see you have the same.

  6. Dear Betty,
    You have so many great cloches!!! wow. Where to store all those which are not easy to store...very impressive.
    Your last post with the hutch and the beautiful canisters and pink china. Oh, I just love every single bit of it. How happy you must be to look at them. The chintz teapot too? LOVE!!
    Happy Valentine's week...Ruthie from: http://www.ladybstimefortea.blogspot.com

  7. Wow! Betty, you have a fabulous collection of cloches! Love the big one that covers a plate stand and of course the pink one. Your heart plate with OCR on it is lovely. I would love to take a peek into your cabinets, my friend, as you seem to have an endless collection of china. What fun! Thank you for coming to tea and Happy Valentines week!


  8. Dear Betty,
    Your cloche collection is fabulous! Love your chintz teapot and the rose pattern teapot. They are beautiful! I loved reading your post...awesome! I'm a night owl too and can relate! Happy Valentine's day!

  9. Hello Betty,
    So, if you can't sleep, instead of counting sheep you count cloches? lol! What a creative thing to do instead of tossing and turning longer! I love the look of all your cloches, and have always wanted some myself. I just haven't found any yet. Yours look amazing all set out on your table!

  10. Oh sweetie, looks like we both got the Cloche Bug!! You have some gorgeous ones, I love the shape of some of them and the way you displayed them is beautiful, as I love to see them all grouped together! Thank you for dropping by to see my cloches too! Big hugs,
