"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 everyone! Since Valentine's Day is next week, I thought I would share some decorations around my house.
I got the idea for this valentine centerpiece from my friend Susan, at A Place Called Home. She challenged us to use things we already had around the house in a recent scavenger hunt post.
I sprinkled pink rose petals on a white table runner and added a few pink candles.
In between the candles, I layered a cake plate, doily, teacup saucer, and another candle on top.
Earlier this afternoon, I swapped out the candle for a teacup and filled it with candy hearts.
The girls and Benjamin like this display the best. I wonder why. ;0)
In the kitchen I hung a heart garland in the window.
I used vellum paper, so the sun could shine through.
Moving on to the entryway, I added a valentine banner to my moss wreath.
"All for Love"
Did someone ask what time it is?
It's time to...Love!
Dawn from The Feathered Nest recently shared a sweet clock trinket that she made, and I borrowed her idea to make these cards.
I added a paper stand to the backs and these will be the place cards for our Valentine's Day dinner. Thank you for the idea, Dawn!
And lastly, I turned my vintage keys into napkin rings!
The tag says, "The key to my heart."
Thank you for looking at my valentine decorations!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:
-A collection you may have
-A piece of jewelry

-Posts with no photos have no "Show." Please don't use them.
-Photos of events (trips, vacations, celebrations, etc.)
-Photos of things you are selling or planning to sell.
-Photos found on the internet, graphics or screenshots. Please use photos you take yourself.
-Old photos of just people instead of things.
