All About Autumn in a Cloche

Hello Everyone,
 Wow! What a busy week. I was working last week at TM on a BIG PROJECT...
But, now I'm back ready to party. 
Cloche Time~It's all about Autumn with a little bit of French influence.
The BIG CLOCHE has center stage today. Silver and Orange show off the big pumpkin on the coffee table.
I have been changing the big cloche every few weeks.

I found this large apothecary jar at the thrift store a few months ago with the price tag attached to the bottom. It was love at first sight, and a great deal.  The little mini pumpkin is sitting in a jeweled candle holder   embellished with amber stones. Very Autumn.
This morning while reading the Sunday Parade, Nate Berkus shared his "TIPS" about High-Impact, Low-Cost Ideas for getting the Most from your Home.
I'm going to paraphrase his ideas. 
Low-Budget Spruce-ups for your home.
1. Clean your house! It costs nothing.  LOL  I love this one. I love to clean house.
2. Painting is an easy spruce-up, but it takes time, and isn't very expensive.
3. Shop your house. Move around what you already own. 
My favorite thing in the article was redefining our space. Living rooms should be used for living.
 If your new to My Cozy Corner our home doesn't have a family room. 
We use our living room to read, entertain, eat, play games and watch television. (Baseball).
During the winter we have a fire in the fireplace and I cuddle up on the sofa with my throw and watch my favorite programs on television or read my favorite decorating books.

I love my cloches and the living room is a great place to showcase my wonderful glass enclosures.
The beautiful colors of the artificial pumpkins are amazing.

I couldn't resist bringing the cloche party into the dining room.  The tea cup has a Pear motif on the cup and adored with the beautiful script inside makes a cloche statement...
I made some Orange Madeleine cakes for my tea cup post and I put the remainder in this cloche.
All about Madeleines in an upcoming post. 
This is the French influence I was mentioning at the top of the post.
 I love anything french. French pastries is on top of the list today.
I plan to serve these delightful cakes at my next tea party and I wanted to test the recipe. 
I'm becoming a Francophile~Visiting France is the new trip in my pocket. 
It will be awhile before I visit my new favorite place, but I have to research and plan my trip. 
And that takes time...Hope you stay around for the journey. 

Oh my gosh! Another joyous day at My Cozy Corner.
