Decorating my sideboard with my new cloche!

Hello sweet friends! I am so glad you came to visit today as I have just finished decorating with my new cloche! I am so happy that I finally found a cloche, just in time for me to join in the fun at Marty's place for her famous Cloche party! I am also linking up with Cindy's beautiful "Show and Tell Friday" party!

My antique Chinese cabinet was the inspiration for my Oriental Cloche display.

 

 

Under my bell cloche are some figurines that I found in Japan. They are sitting on a blue and white platter that also comes from Japan.


 

 

On one side of the cloche I have displayed some pottery from Japan. My sister and her husband spent a year teaching in Sapporo and they sent this blue and white bunny pottery to Big Al for his Christening.


 




To the right of my cloche is a blue and white Wedgwood plate, a souvenir from a holiday in Singapore.


To continue with the Oriental theme I displayed a little vessel  from Japan under a glass dome and placed them on a coffee table book called "Japanese Style." Also on display is a beautiful antique lacquered bowl.


 

  

  

  

Would you mind if I show you my apothecary jars? Previously they were on my sideboard but I decided that they might look nice in the main bathroom...

  

  

 


I know that these aren't cloches but this is my favorite fragrance! I also love the gorgeous red packaging in our grey, green and white bathroom.


I am so happy that I finally found a cloche and I am so happy that Marty is having this great cloche party. 
Thank you again Marty for introducing me to the beauty of cloches!

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend,
Natasha In Oz

  2. Bonjour Natasha,
    Oh this cloche party is alot of fun. I love each one here, the two little figurines are so pretty and the black vessel with the peacock is very dramatic and of course the wonderful Wedgewood plate. I never get tired of the apothecary jars.

    I need to get a cloche, I'm not quite sure what to put under it, but you've given me lots of great ideas.

    a bientôt

  3. Natasha, your cloche is just gorgeous and I love your displays. What a treasure is the antique chest and then all of your mementos from Japan and they all have such special meaning. Every single piece is stunning. I just love them all. Your jars are wonderful. I have a jar and just never remember to fill it with something lovely for the bathroom, but I simply adore that look. Thank you so much for joining the party. This is so much fun. Hugs, Marty

  12. Hi Natasha~~

    You have put together a great Japanese vignette on your console table. I love it. And how lucky you are to have visited Japan! I love the cloche there and the beautiful Wedgwood plate. I also love your apathacary jars. Aren't they nice that they can go from room to room?!!

    Wonderful post! :-)

  16. Thanks for stopping by the other day and leaving a comment. We've been busy too. It seems that I can't get all the blog reading done either. So I haven't been by in a while. I usually glance at my thumbnails of posts and check in but don't always make it over to visit. I am going to try Blue Monday and was telling her that who knows, I may have to find myself a cloche! I used to have something like one. I saw a wire one somewhere in my recent travels on the blog. Speaking of traveling - y'all sure travel to some neat and faraway places. I suppose faraway to me ... closer to you. Love your seashells and bathroom decanters ... and the reds are nice in there. See ya next time, g'day. :) hee hee hee okay, y'all come back now, y'here? Is that better? Jenn <><

  22. I adore your Asian vignette.

    Mary Poppins was just superb.
    It was fully enjoyed by my 8 yr old son, 20 yr old daughter, 46 yr old husband and 42 year old friend who "doesn't do theater". :)
    The sets are like magical pop ups, the costumes divine and the story line has a few new songs to keep you guessing.
