Show and Tell

Variety is the spice of life, 'they' say....and so is my show and tell this week.

Here is a wonderful little set of six rose melamine dessert dishes I came across awhile ago and just rediscovered them. Did you know I can go treasure shopping right in my own home too? It is amazing the goodies I have tucked away just waiting in ernest to be brought out. The picture to the right show the new additons to my gift tag line.
The next picture is a new project a did and I love it so I wonder if I'll be able to part with it. Since I have collections of old laces, and gorgeous pins and brooches, I am constantly thinking of how I can debut my lovelies. Of course, I have my "If The Shoe Fits~Altered Art for Cinderella Dreams Slipper Shoes" but I needed to spread out in my creative space. It is a blend of old and new; tated lace surrounding a brooch of purples, enclosed in a classy new silver frame. Kind of sounds like me...old and tatered, covered in purple all dressed up in my classy new silver frame! Hey, I think I'm on to something here! Now, where do I get that frame????.......

Know what you mean about old and tattered I am feeling like that constantly, if I don't look in the mirror I am alright, lol.

Hi Susie,
Love your new creations, the tags and the new way to display jewelry. Can’t beat the price of shopping in your own house, those plates are way cute!
