September 2009

Welcome to Marty's Cloche Party and Beverly's Pink Saturday. This little cupcake stand is the only thing in my home that qualifies as a cloche, so it's the best I could do. But hey, I wanted to join in Marty's fun!

Now you need to hurry on over to Marty's @ A Stroll Through Life. There are some amazing cloches to discover. Then on Saturday, please go on over to Beverly's @ How Sweet the Sound to see more Pink Saturday fun.


The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.


  1. Just love the tall cupcake cloche. I've wanted one for a long time but it's one of those things that I've just not gotten around to yet!

    Pink frosted cupcakes are my favorite!

  2. Hi Sarah! Oh, what a cute little cupcake cloche. I've got to get one of these!

  19. Hello Sarah...

    Such sweet pinkness!!! That little pink polka dot cloche is just darling and the cupcake looks simply divine under glass!!! Thank you for sharing it with us today and also...would just like to say that I always enjoy your Haiku! I remember writing Haiku in school but then that's been a couple of years back...wink! Hehe! Well maybe like 35 yrs. back!

    Sure did enjoy your visit today and thank you so much for leaving me such a kind note!

    Warmest wishes,

  20. Pink is great, I think
    Gracing cupcake, glorious
    Watch me eat it carefully!


  21. ooh how i could just eat that cake looks yummy

  22. Your cupcake is awesome and thanks to someone else's blog I read a few minutes ago, I understand what a cloche is!! LOL Happy Pink Saturday!

  23. I will definitely have to find a cloche - I don't think I can ever have another cupcake if I don't have one!

  24. How cute, and it's making me hungry, the last couple of blogs have had food in them, and my favorite food, sweets. I love the little cupcake cloches, I got to find them and get some. Great job.

  25. Oh my gosh, I just want to lift the lid and dig right in...scrumptious!!
    Happy Pink blog is filled with so many beautiful things!

  26. Sarah, I love the haiku, but I'm really in love with that pink polka dot cloche! How cute is that! And that cupcake, too!


    Sheila :-)

  27. Happy Pink Saturday! That cupcake looks delicious...I'm not sure that I could leave it there long enough to take a photo as you did! I'm on the lookout for a cloche (or ten!), I'm not willing to pay full price for one and so far Goodwill, etc... hasn't yielded any. But I have faith! Have a great week, Leslie

  28. That cupcake is sure nummy looking! Happy Pink Saturday from the Mermaids of the Lake in Liberty Lake, Washington! Stop by and see us, too!

    As an aside, I co-authored a cookbook called "Daily Bread and a Hyacinth." Love the quote we both use!
