Show & Tell Friday for March 14

Well, better late than never. I'm going to attempt to put up a short post for Show & Tell Friday. I still have a few items to share from different walls in my home. These are from the master bedroom.

This painting was given to us as a wedding gift. We were acquainted with a lovely elderly couple in the church we were attending at the time. The husband had a hobby of making picture frames from old barn boards, and he showed us a number of paintings he had framed and had us choose one. We chose this one depicting the shore of a pond because it reminded us of the view from the cottage where we had spent our honeymoon.

This lace wall hanging was purchased by dear friends of ours when they visited Lancaster County, PA. They knew this Bible verse -- "This is the day which the LORD hath made: we will rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24) -- is one of my favorites. The colors go perfectly in our bedroom.

This adorable Holly Pond Hill card was sent to me by one of our daughters. I love the way it depicts the mother and daughter rabbits having tea together and sharing such a good time. It reminds me of time that my daughter and I spent together at a very special tearoom when I visited her in South Carolina.

And last, here is one of my few attempts at quilting. I made this sunflower mini quilt from directions in an old issue of Country Woman magazine. The sunflower's center is made from an assortment of buttons in different tones of brown.

To see what others have shared for Show & Tell this week, go visit visit There is No Place Like Home

  1. Nice! I especially like the quilted sunflower!

  2. I love the sunflower too! So cute and cheery! Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great day!

  3. what a nice Show & Tell, Mrs.T. The barnwood frame is such a nice touch. I love the little bunnies having tea with momma. and the quilting project is very cute. Some of the small quilts I've been researching are used in bread baskets or as table toppers and are really fun. I'm making a small one for the 4 Seasons Quilt Swap and am having a lot of fun with it. It's small so it's not so intimidating!

  4. I love the bunny card the best--it is so homey and cute. I also love SC because that is where I live. I like New England because that is where I grew up. But I admit to loving the warm weather here--it is easy to walk every day. (The summers could be cooler). What do I miss about New England? I miss the fine grass, the smell of new snow, franconia notch, warren-Vermont, the town greens, Hawks Nest Beach and my Uncle's cottage, but most of the other things I miss can be found in the western part of the state or just over the border in the NC mountains ;-)

  5. Beautiful reminder of your honeymoon. The sunflower is beautiful. Thanks for sharing

  6. I love the frame on your fisrt picture! I have a soft spot for old barn wood. It has character in its textures!

  7. Very cute things! Have a
    great day!

  8. Nice to have things to remind you of pleasnt memories.

    Stop on by for a visit at Made some Kiss Me I'm Irish Beef & Cabbage yesterday & posted the recipe. Come on over, I'll fix you a plate!

    I love the quilted sunflower - especially the button "seeds", and that lace panel is so pretty. That lake view is lovely too, so peaceful. The little bunnies having tea reminded me of Beatrix Potter. : )

  12. I LOVE your lace wall hanging. I have been thinking of showing my lace wall hangings for S&T sometime. Yours is much prettier than mine - as you have some color on your lace - my is just plain lace.

    Have a great week.
