Wow, you have some wonderful cloches here. I love that miniature greenhouse.

Stacey said...

I'm jealous, Mrs. Claus has a conservatory!

Your cloches in the Christmas village are very pretty. That's a great way to draw attention to the small details.

Hope you are having a great week!

Wow Lisa, your cloche collection is beautiful and your village display is so cute! That must have taken ages to set up! It is worth it though isn't it.

Oh how pretty. I love how you have only a few things underneath. It is like they are set apart. :o)
Your scripture has me pondering several things. Thank you so much for sharing! :o)

So magical! :)

Liz said...

What an awesome idea to put your village on a precious quilt! I don't think I would have thought of that. Of course the Cloche's are perfect little vignettes! :)

That needs to be in some sort of contest, it is so neat. I bet everyone loves it.

Melissa Miller said...

Lisa this is truly magical looking!
Just breaktaking in every way. Sigh...I love it!Gorgeous presentation!

~Blessings my friend, ~Melissa :)

Sue said...

I love seeing villages and the addition of the cloches over some of the pieces is simply ingenious. Love the conservatory! Do you collect the buildings as individual pieces or did you get them all as a set? I am in village envy... LOL
Thank you for coming by to visit from Susan's party.

cindy said...

What a wonderful village. And the cloches make it extra special! We use a lot of those at work and it always just sets something apart and makes it even more lovely!
