Show and Tell Sunday


I was so excited to hear about some bloggers getting together to do show and tell on Sunday's!! LittlePinkStudio and LeesieBella got together and decided to make it official!! You can read all about it HERE.

Show and Tell was always a favorite back in elementary school--being allowed to bring your favorite things to school to show everyone and also getting to see what the other's brought. I remember the excitement that would be around on Show and Tell day! Anyone else remember this as fondly as I do?

This is a bit of a long story so stick with me till the end --OK?? -so, I'm all excited and looking forward to Show and Tell............guess what ? The subject this time is vintage millinery florals. I could've cried! I don't have ANY! No hats, no hat boxes, and not even a little tiny vintage floral. Can you believe that? Oh well, I guess I will have to see what next week brings! *wipes tear away*.

I had such a wonderful thing come to me in the mail this week---just yesterday as a matter of fact. It came in a large long box...and when I saw who it was from....I could hardly wait to open it! I was the lucky lucky winner of Kandeland's blog giveaway!! Yeah !!!!!!!! And she sent me (lickety-split too, I might add) a great big box full of crafty goodies! OMGosh--a regular treasure chest!! Just look at all that gorgeousness!! Thank you SO much Natalea--I am stunned by your generosity!!! AND........best of all...........do you see what is in there---right about center top of the pic..........


Some beautiful vintage flowers!!! Yeah! So I can participate after all----I am so blessed. :o) Thanks again Natalea--you have made me a happy gal!

Know what else made me happy this week? The weather, oh yeah. It actually got up in the 50's and we were able to open up the windows for a bit and air out the house! Lovely. Rosie was enjoying having a little talk with the pigeons on the neighbors rooftop!!




I also got a couple new bagkeepers finished this week. It's been a while since I made any of these with my own embroidery on them--and I forgot how much I enjoy doing them! This cute one with the spring colors and the cute little birds is available in HERE.


I also did this cutey chickens one--in pretty red and aqua--but this one is already sold to the fabulous EstherSunday (if you haven't ever been to her blog---you should! She is really funny and silly--a great read!). Just thought I'd show it off while I still have it!
Have a great day my lovely blog friends!!

Karen, I have to say, I love your blue walls! And bag keepers! I wish I had a place to hang one of them in my kitchen. I have absolutely no wall space. It is all cupboards and tile. How sweet was Natalea's gift!
