Show & Tell Friday for February 15

For Show & Tell this week -- and maybe for a few weeks -- I thought I would share some of the decorative items I have displayed on various walls in my home. I'm going to begin with the kitchen/dining area. I only have 2 items to share this week, although there are more things I could share from these rooms.

In the kitchen, here is a recipe wall hanging which I made quite a few years ago. I made one for summer (this one), one for fall, and one for winter. I really want to make more of these sometime. I ended up giving away the other two, so I only have this one. They would make great gifts. The basis is a dish towel. This one, with its recipe for Strawberry Cream Pie, looks nice in my kitchen/dining area which has a strawberry theme.

In the dining area, here is a lovely print of Rainbow Row in Charleston, SC. This was given us as a gift by some very dear friends after we visited Charleston. They know the artist personally. Her artwork captures the colors of Rainbow Row so perfectly. And I was thrilled to find the absolutely perfect frame for it at a Christmas Tree Shop for only $1.99!

That is all I have to share today, but I hope you have enjoyed seeing these things. They are special to me!
