Autumn Cloches

9.17.2010

I hope everybody's week has been going well. I have slowly been getting a lot done before my guests come this weekend. I still have some cleaning to do, but the tables are ready for a dinner we are having Saturday night. I will share those another time.


Now it is time to join Marty at  A Stroll thru Life for the fall cloche party.



 This is a vignette on my sofa table that I still haven't painted. Still on my to do list.


I changed what was under the cloche to some different fruits, artichoke and a starfish.

 and a pinecone ball

Added these fall branches and a set of shed antlers from our property.




Placed a willow charger in the back for an added layer and texture.




The quail is from Pottery Barn last year.

This is my bird topped cloche in the sunroom.


There is a natural bird nest under it from our front porch this spring.


Last but not least is this jar from Southern Living at Home line filled with pears and placed
on a willow tray with a fern and a gourd.






Hope you will go over to Marty's and join in.
Also joining Artie at Color Outside the Lines for vignette Fridays,
Southern in my Heart for inspiration Fridays.

Have a super weekend!
Y'all come back now,

  2. Happy Friday, Kim!! LOVE all of your cloches and how you've scattered them throughout your beautiful home! Your sofa table vignette is beautiful ... so colorful and, yes, perfect mix of textures! I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family ... they won't want to leave! Take care, Becca

  4. Very pretty Cloches Kim! I love how much you decorated around them creating such interested vignettes. I need to work on that! I love the tall cloche with the pears! It's gorgeous!

  5. Beautiful Kim. I love the natural bird's nest. I have several of them. They are a great decorating item. I like the arches in your kitchen above the SLH cloche. I haven't seen those before. Very pretty.

    Thanks so much for coming by the new Back Porch. It is definitely a work in progress. Lots to learn over there.

  10. I just had to comment this morning about how gorgeous your sofa table display looks! Love the fruit and leaves and the antler combination. That is a beautiful cloche and stand combo too. Cody will be able to come Saturday night. Yay! Looking forward to our get together and meeting Naomi for the first time.

  11. Beautiful, Kim. Good luck with your family dinner, but I know it will wonderful. I am hosting a birthday party for the founder of our company(his 80th) tomorrow night for 80 people(all the employees). I have been working on it for the last month and next Friday I have the tennis girls over for my yearly dinner, so I am in the same mode as you!

  12. Kim, this looks fabulous!!! I always love your cloches:) Love the use of all the colors too, and the antler looks great there!

  14. Kim, If I had one wish it would be to follow you around for a week, watch you work, and learn how to put my home together. Love your displays, so beautiful!

  15. Beautiful inspiration. The cloche on the sofa table is beautiful as it flows beyond the cloche with the fall flowers and antlers. The jar in the kitchen looks just great clustered with other fall items resting upon the willow tray. It's amazing how placing a little collection upon a tray can just pull it all together!

    I'd love to have you come join in Seasonal Sundays. It's a weekly meme that I host and it's all about what the season means to YOU! Hope to see you then.

  16. W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L.!! I need you here to help me! Kim, you do such a beautiful job of pulling a look together! Love it!

  17. Look at your pictures...GORGEOUS!! I love cloches, but always have a heck of a time finding them. Where do you find most of yours? Your fall displays are so beautiful. Kim, you are so talented. Your ideas are brilliant and so warm and welcoming! Like Marla, I would love to follow you around your house and watch you in decorating action. You are definitely someone to learn from. Thanks for sharing! I'm off to spruce UP what I have out…LOL! =) ~Liz

  18. Y'all are all too sweet. You would not want to follow me around doing this because you would go nuts and get confused. I jump from one thing to the next and it takes me a while to get it all together. I think of one thing and say I need to do this and next thing I know I am doing something else. May have ADD! Liz, my cloches have come from different decor shops and on line.

  19. I'm super-late for this party, but I love seeing everyone else's cloches. Yours are beautiful. Have a great weekend!

  20. I love just about everything you do. I need to learn how to incorporate more texture into my displays. At least I know where to come to get inspiration for that.

  21. Kim you are so like me....yesterday I had 3 things going at the same time, and went from one to another:) OK I got to see all the beautiful pictures now....loos great! I like the vignette behind the sink in the basket...great idea!

  22. So many pretty cloches! I love your vignettes! They are interesting with so many textures and colors. Wonderful.

  23. Very pretty, KIm! I love how you put the cloches in trays....Christine

  24. Those look beautiful! I love them all, but that vignette on the sofa table is outstanding. I love al the textures from the sea star to the antlers. You just know how to pull it all together. You need to video yourself making a vignette and post it for us to see how the mind works while putting them together!

  25. Kim, all of your cloches are so pretty and perfect for the fall! I hope you enjoy your company this weekend!

  26. Morning, Kim! oh, what a lovely display. You've thought of everything, haven't you? And there are some more horns! :) Looks perfect with all of your Falleness. I love the willow tray in your kitchen too and how you've decked it out.
    I'm coveting a tad, well a whole lot, that precious bird topped cloche! It's precious.
    Enjoy your guests!

  30. Oh Kim, your displays are stunning. You really do know how to make everything look fabulous. I love your cloche and the pretty stand it is on. Your little birdnest is so cute too. The apothecary jar in the kitchen is beautiful and perfect filled with the fruit. Thanks so much for linking to the party. Fabulous inspiration. Hugs, Marty

  34. Perfection! We too had a bird build a nest on our front porch this summer. There were four babies who have "flown the coop," but we enjoyed keeping tabs on them while they were here.

  53. Kim, Your pics are delicious! Can you tell me where can I purchase those glorious tall jars from Southern Living? So far my google searches aren't fining anything like that. That is exactly what I've been looking for.

    Love your bench makeover, and words cannot express how much I enjoyed the pictures of your beautiful daugher.

    Thanks for your beautiful posts--your home is so what I wish mine was like.

  54. Peggy, that was sold a few years ago and you may be able to find them on ebay. Type in SLAH in the search box. They are probably hard to find since they are several years old.
    Thanks so much for the compliments.

  55. I love the little quail -your guests will have a marvelous time :-)

  60. Hello Kim,

    I love your fall cloches! I recently found an antler when I was reorganizing my garden closet and for the life of me I have no idea where it came from! Maybe I will copy you and use it in a fall vignette. Well, that is if I ever admit fall is here or at least approaching...

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend with your guests!

  61. Kim, the colors are so wonderful! I am loving the pinecone ball, the antlers, the rattan charger (L.O.V.E) and all the details that you add to make the space so amazing! I love visiting here! I sent you an e-mail with info about the rattan plate stand! Christie at threepixielane

    Your house is stunning!

  63. Beautiful, Kim! Your photos are wonderful. What camera are you using these days. It seems all our cameras went kaput and my oldest daughters is the only one working, but she is never home and takes the camera with her!

  64. Everything is so beautiful. It is so cool you can find antlers on your property, they are so great for decorating.

  66. I like it that you left the starfish out for fall. I put away a few shells and things, but I have pumpkins sitting among the shells here...I just can't make all of my "beach love" disappear. I really love that apothocary jar!
