Show and Tell Friday!


Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.


Hello! I promised to share pictures of a few things the girls and I picked up last weekend at a antique/tea shop, so here they are...

And our favorite...a chicken egg holder for the fridge! Thank you for taking a look at our new treasures!

Also, thank you for the sweet comments on our afternoon tea. I had a very busy week, but will hopefully be by to visit you all soon. Have a wonderful weekend!

Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate.

Everything is so "Eastery"!!! I love it. That wire egg 'hen's basket' is fabulous. I wanna find one like that for sure. Guess that calls for a shopping trip. hehehehehe

I love the bunnies and the egg holder but the thing that struck me the most was the vintage wrapping paper. The pictures are gorgeous and the one of the baby in the crib is so like one of my birth cards - oh dear .... I think that might make me vintage!!!

What darling finds! Wish we could see more of the felted bunnies. I collect bunnies and I have been wanting to try my hand at making some needle-felted ones.

Lady Katherine said...

I love the felted bunnies! Felting is so fun! I love to felt my sheep's wool. I love the chicken wire egg holder! Just love it. The vintage paper is so pretty! I bought today a wire screen food cover, about the size of a bowl, at a thrift shop. Someone has embroidery bumble bees and yellow flowers on it! Love the egg holder, mine are just hens with bowls, yours is really great.
