Show & Tell Friday for August 14
Here is my hutch decorated for late summer. The top shelf has stayed the same with a Proverbs 31:31 stitchery made by a friend, and two flower teapots for one from another friend.
The bottom shelf features, as usual, some of my treasured ironstone dishes from my mother's family, but with some summery additions like an eyelet runner, sunflowers, berries, ivy and a little bluebird dish. The two cookbooks are favorites from Gooseberry Patch. The little packet of tea was purchased on our last getaway up north, and the summery tag was made by a dear friend.
The other two shelves are decorated with a seashore theme. The topmost one holds seashell candleholders we made for my daughter's wedding, and also two special cards, a ferry schedule from 1970, shells, and some green sea glass.
The next shelf holds more shells, more cards, a large painted sand dollar from Florida, a small handpainted sand dollar done by one of my daughters, and some plain sand dollars from Maine. On the right is another candleholder we made for the wedding (9 years ago now) -- we frosted the glass, poured the candles, trimmed with gold mesh and seashell charms.
Lastly here is my hallway ribbon board filled with summer cards and tags.
And that is my simple Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home.
Happy Show & Tell Friday!
