Show and Tell

A new week and so much to share. I have really had a productive week and thought I would give you a look at a few of the things I have made, found and embellished. So I guess I will just jump right in!

I went around this weekend tea dying just about everything I could find. I did several sets of tags and tied them with some pretty pastel crinkle ribbons. Simple but pretty.

Next is a set of file folders that I just couldn't pass up. They are new yet have the "vintage" look to them. Lots of fun and a great way to get organized. I use tons of file folders for all my pictures.
Ok, I know it's only January. . . but I had to try out some new things I got and played a bit with Easter goodies. Here is a set of bunny tags. . and below. . .
an Easter wall hanging with the words Happy Easter in French.
This week I hit a few junk shops and found an enormous bag of old buttons. I had my little ones play a game seperating them by color and they had a ball. I now have literally thousands of buttons but I am finding they are an addiction. I want more. .

and more!
I also did a bit of shopping from Count Your Blessings. If you haven't been you must visit her. She has a beautiful site and so many lovely treasures. I could look for hours. These quilt squares are adorable and I have so many ideas for them. I may even dust off my sewing machine.
Some other goodies I found were this card holder (I had to stick one of my new business cards Roxie designed in it- love them! I may add a little something to it before I put it up for sale.
I found this pretty little shabby wall pocket thingy. . lol.. . and. .
finally, this tray. There was just something about it I had to grab it. I don't think I will refinish it though. I may just sell it and leave the redo to someone else this time. Oh, and the little man just had to check it out too. Thanks for visiting and have a lovely week!

The new products are beautiful and your vintage finds are great. The card holder would make a terrific display for your tags or for vintage postcards, don't you think?
