A 'BIG' New Cloche for My Cozy Corner

Hi Everyone,
I have a brand new 'BIG' Cloche.
My daughter and granddaughters gave this fabulous cloche to me for my birthday on 
June 3rd. 
I've been waiting for Marty to have a cloche party so I could show off my 'BIG' CLOCHE.

Actually I have been doing some fun decorating at My Cozy Corner lately.
I made the rose patterned pillows this spring, and a couple of weeks ago I covered two more pillows on the sofa that been on there for more than 20+ years.

I'm following the decorating tips for coffee table appeal.  
Something Tall + One Oddball Object + Something Fresh  + A Stack of Books

I love my new cloche.  I will be busy finding wonderful things to display in it all year long.

When I started to blog I didn't know what a cloche was.  How quick I learned. 
In the beginning I found ~What I called cloches all around the house~ 
Go Here to see a review of the past cloche parties I have joined. 

As you can see I have acquired a few real cloches. A little fruit under cover and on the sofa table behind the love seat I have put some of my fresh Lavender in a vase.

I love to sit in the love seat and read my Country French and Tea books
I also enjoy my vignette using my thrifty finds.
A Lenox vase and candle holder from the thrift shops in our area. 

This cloche is just a perfect size for small decor

A cloches can be used to display treasures from a vacation or treasures from home too. 
The little ducks I bought from a little mexican boy in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
He was so cute and the little ducks go so well with our Cozy Corner. 
And a little jar of lavender buds for accent comes from my lavender plant in my garden. 

I made this heart shaped lavender sachet with the same rose patterned fabric I used for the rectangular pillows on the sofa and love seat.  I love the way it hangs from the lamp.

My newest hobby is to go to the thrift shops and find inexpensive decorating books. 
They are not new, but the rules of decor stay the same.  Just a little update once in awhile.
I've found the painted letters are very popular now.  So I bought this letter Y at TM.
Sweetheart painted it black for me in a heartbeat. 
 He is so talented and willing to please me. Even after 52 years. LOL!

As I was buying the letter Y I thought I would embroidery the letter Y on one of my new pillows.
But I forgot how to embroidery.  I thought I would have to do some samples first...That would be to long and you can see me in tears before I was finished with the project.  Well, I decided to have the monogram done by a professional ($5.00) yes. I know, amazing !
 I love the color of the thread and the block style is the same as the Y on the mantel.
 I'm having so much fun making our home Cozy.  

I made a matching heart sachet, but the bow was being so stubborn that I just tied a knot.

I love to recap my photos in a collage.  
Thanks Marty for throwing this great party.
I love my Cloches...
