I tried to get my jar ready for the Cloche party last night but the glitter just was not dry enough to finish up. Hubby took me out for dinner tonight and we went to pick up our oldest grandson after that so I am just now able to get my pictures downloaded and add to my post. You can see all the other beautiful Cloches at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/2009/12/holiday-cloche-party.html
I had this jar all set with the snow and the red and white tree that I have had for a couple of years and just did not know what to do with it. I had saw these little cardboard houses and churches at Michaels (they come with a string to hang them) and thought I could paint them and add to the jar. I then saw someone else, sorry I forget whose wonderful blog, had already done this and added glitter. So that is what I did. I tried to bleach the green trees but it did not work. It only lightened the color. So I added glitter to those also.
Here is a close up of the house you probably cannot see that I used a crackle medium the roof looks really neat.
I have had these birds under glass for a while so I placed them in with some Christmas decor so they would fit into the holiday theme. I usually have framed pictures sitting on top of most everything so I decorate around them. I think I still need something to pull this together just not sure what.
This is what our back woods looked like this morning. Our first real snow fall. Everyone asked me if I ordered it for my birthday. Wouldn't be wonderful if we could keep this under all our glass with all our villages.
Hope you enjoy checking out everyone else pretties and get some wonderful ideas for you Christmas decor at A Stroll Thru Life with Marty.
