Christmas Sleighs ~ 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.
Today I am sharing some Christmas items that I found at my local thrift store. I love sleighs and was so excited to get this one for $4.00.
I'm not sure how old it is, but it is very sturdy and well made.
Another little sleigh in my kitchen. I filled it with pinecones and cinnamon sticks.
And lastly, some sweet figurines that I set up in my kitchen window. I found them a few years ago.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!

I am in love with your sleigh! And the figurines are so sweet looking!
Those figurines are so cute. I like their face expressions.
Kelli, your sleighs are wonderful. I love that one you bought at the thrift store! And great idea to put pine cones in it...
Nice pictures and cute seasonal goodies!
Also, I am always interested in how people are able to stay home financially. If you don't care to answer, that's fine. Otherwise, do you have a business that you do from home, etc. like some women do?
aww.. the figurines are delicious! as is your sleigh find! lucky you Kelli!!
The sleigh is so adorable! Pine cones and cinnamon sticks. It must smell wonderful, the figurines are so sweet. They must be planning on hopping in the sleigh for a ride. lol
I love your sleighs! I found one on clearance last year and I am enjoying it. It's not so well made as your though. Your's are beautiful!!
I love looking at your Christmas items. They are very adorable. Are you enjoying the season? Isn't it fun?
Those sleighs are great. They blend so well with your decor :)
Season's Greetings! Lovely sleighs.
Tomorrow is my day for the thrift store Kelli, and I hope I can find some of the things you have found. Your window looks really great. Have a great Friday.
What a great find Kelli! I think your figurines are precious too.
I'll try to play sometime today. I just did a cookie swap for another blog party.
Also was with my mom all afternoon as she needs her 3rd eye operation! Poor ma!
So cute, Kelli. I love the little figurines!:)
Those sleighs are really neat. I love how you've used them to decorate!
The little figurines are too cute too!
Thanks for hosting!
The sleighs are really nice and your figurines are so charming.
Loved all of your " Show and Tell" items, Kelli! The little figurines are my favorite. You are such a fun gal.
I am going to send you some pictures of my decorations in the mail....since I don't know how to do it on the computer. (I am not very smart in that department.) We are not done getting all of the Christmas stuff out but we are working at it. :-)
Have a great week-end. Love, Debbi
That sleigh is so lovely, perfect for your christmas display.
Love those sleighs! Very pretty!
I love your sleigh full of pine cones. I bet the cinnamon sticks make it smell so good!
These are SO sweet...they're figurines that I would definitely love in my home, too! And I just love sleighs, as well...what a find for only $4!
Sorry I haven't joined in with Show and Tell in awhile...I do hope to next week, though!

My show n tell this week is the Christmas Dining Room Table Top.
I love your sleighs. That's something I would never think of collecting.
I'm participating for the first time this week. Hope I did it right.
I love the figurines, they must bring a smile to your face while you're washing dishes! Very nice!
what a sweet show-n-tell, I was just wondering as I saw the plants if you keep them all year round then I saw the figurines, then I though how does she keep them from fading then as I scrolled down I saw that they're in front of the plants, yea yea I think too much LOL, hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Your figurines are so cute! The glass shelves in front of your window are so unique, I've never seen any like them before.
Kelli, I need your help. I wanted to join in today for Show and Tell Friday. But unable to download your Show and Tell picture. Could you explain it to me in dumb blond terms. HA!!! I'll be waiting to here from you at email@example.com Thx Becky
Such gorgeous tings you have shared today
Your sleigh is wonderful
I have several sleighs also. I like how you decorated the first one. Is it sitting in the fireplace? I love the figurines. They look a little like Hummel. Don't you just love to tuck little Christmasy things away in small places.
Have a good day and thank you for hosting show & tell.
Have a wonderful show & tell day. Like your sleigh.
Those cute little faces really made me smile!! You do such a great job with your photography. I'm practicing!
Those are some very nice things. Have been peaking at this meme for a few weeks now. This is my first.
I love your cute figurines.
I miss you all the last week, glad things are back to normal. Now I have to take a look around.....
I adore your sleighs!!
Those figurines have the cutest faces! The sleigh is wonderful too!
Your little figurines are so sweet with their cute expressions.
I love your winter sleigh, too.
Ivoryspring said what I was thinking! I am in love! With your sleighs -- and with your resale store! You find the very best things! The little figures all have such sweet faces. Beautiful, Kelli, as usual.
What a great find that sleigh was and those little characters in your garden window are so cute!
HI Kelli, don't you just love sleds. I love them and use them to fill with pens and pencils at Christmas, little soaps and handtowels, tiny gifts or gift cards. The figurines are sweet too.
I hope you are having a wonderful day!
You always have such neat decorations! I have a real weakness for figurines, loves these!
Love your sleighs! And your kitchen window people are darling! (looks like you plants are doing well too!) Thanks for hosting us today! Happy Holiday to you and yours:)
I WANT your sleigh ... want it want it. haha.
Whenever I see a sleigh I think of Thomas Kinkaide, because in his book he says that he and his wife have a sleigh which they keep in their house and they put all their reading books in it. I've always thought that was a 'novel' idea (pun intended)
Lovely, LOVELY blog post, thank you for sharing. Haha, me and a few others did S & T last friday even though you were not here. You've got us trained LOL!
I made a big mistake! In an effort to get the right link for my blog, I ended up listing three times! It's the last one that I wanted on there.
Is there anyway you can fix it?
I'm so sorry. I usually don't make such goofy mistakes!
What beautiful sleighs! I love those little figurines, too. I'm trying not to envy that kitchen window LOL!
I really love the sleigh filled
with pine cones. It is so warm
Very sweet decorations. I just love your plant window. I would like to have one in my kitchen some day! Have a great weekend! Elena
I love your lil kitchen window! that is actually what I have been wanting to do with mine : ), it has been in my head but couldn't quite get hubby to "see" it, now i actually can have him see it! time to head out to the hardware store!
I love your sleighs too! I like your Show and Tells. I wish I didn't have so many things still in boxes! :)
Hi, Kelli! Happy Show and Tell Friday. I love your little figurines!

So pretty, Kelli! I love the close-ups of all the details. Have a great weekend!
That sleigh is wonderful and I think you are right. I think it must be very old. What a treasure!
Hi Kelli! I love your new sleigh - and your figurines looks absolutely cozy! I imagine them on the sleigh for a wonderful winter wonderland ride through the snow, don't you?
It is so much fun to go to a thrift shop and come out with a treasure. I love the sleigh and your holiday window looks so cozy and warm. Hugs to you and your family for a wonderful weekend.
Your sleigh and little figurines are so nice...and as usual...you have the touch with how you display them...
