(Scroll down for the Friday’s Feast.)
Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home hosts “Show and Tell Friday” asking “Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there’s a story behind your special something, that’s even better! If you would like to join in, all you have to do is post your “Show and Tell” on your blog, copy the post link, come over here and add it to Mr. Linky.“
When we moved to this house a little over nine years ago and I was unpacking all my decorations, I didn’t realize I had several little houses. The first item was a cookie jar.
I also found somewhere along the way this cute little house. It’s supposed to be one of those things where you put a small candle in the back and something scented that melts in a little impression above it — but scented things like that give me a headache, so I just enjoy looking at the little house.
I put everything else in a grouping on the kitchen wall.
I love the little house-shaped pot-holder with the heart in it. I couldn’t use it as a pot holder, so I am using it as a decoration and enjoying it that way. It will last a lot longer!
Here are some close-ups of some of those things.
These were unframed prints at the Christian book store for just a few dollars, and I got some 2 for $5 frames for them.
The top one says, “Treasured friends: time only makes them more dear.” The bottom one says
Let’s visit — just come in and sit.
Our homes warmed by your presence — so linger a bit.
This is one of my favorites. I love this saying. I think I got both of these at a craft show.
The two on the right here were craft show finds as well. The little windmill my husband brought home for me on a trip to Austria that had a layover in Holland.
This doesn’t have a house on it, but it says “Happiness is home made” — which kind of fits.
I’ve shown my some of my hearts and pink roses collections before, and several of these little houses have hearts and/or roses on them. But I don’t have the space to expand this collection like the others, so I am trying to keep it as is. I did, however, buy three little wooden house cut-outs that I want to try to paint “some day.”
