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 am back from a wonderful vacation visiting my family in Rhode Island, and I have two new treasures to share.

My mom gave me this small dish set with sweet violets. Someone mentioned that it may be a sugar and creamer set.

But I'm going to use it as a miniature pitcher and bowl in my bathroom.

We visited quite a few antique shops in Rhode Island and I had to bring home this teacup because it reminded me of Sunbonnet Sue.

Even the saucer has wonderful details.

My favorite is the little sugar/creamer or miniature pitcher/bowl combination. I love how one sits inside the other so perfectly.

I've enjoyed linking up to this for the last three times. Thank you for hosting.

Welcome back good friend! I love your R. I. treasures. I have a set like the one you are going to put in your bathroom. I think it is a sugar and creamer but it will look very nice in your bathroom. (You are so clever when you decorate.)

My favorite this week is the tea cup and saucer. It is a perfect addition to two of your collections....the tea cup one and the Sunbonnet Sue collection.

Looking forward to seeing your vacation pictures.
Love, Debbi

Welcome home, Kelli. I know it must be hard living so far from your Mom so I'm sure you had a wonderful visit with her.
When I first saw the bowl and pitcher, it reminded me of those embroidered pillow cases. You know the ones? I think it is just lovely and the bathroom is an ideal place for it. I would have loved browsing through those antique stores with you.

Hi, Kelli -
Your new treasures are wonderful. The little bowl and pitcher are so sweet and they will be a great addition to your bathroom - what a great idea! I l-o-v-e the cup and saucer. I'd love to find something like it because it's different than the usual floral sets. So glad you had a chance to get away and that you had a safe trip home again. Thanks for sharing your pretties today.
