Show and Tell Friday

Thank you Kelli for hosting Show and Tell Fridays, what great fun. Please check out the link on my sidebar. Mom's here from NC and I'm really glad to have this time with her. I've been working on the house a lot this summer. I really pushed myself when I found out she was coming. (Two more weeks and I'm back to school. Can you believe it?) I'm sharing the arrangement I just completed on the top of my hutch in the kitchen. I'm really please with it and wanted show my treasures.

This is the entire top. The milk glass pieces were my grandmother's. The little kitty is sitting on a box I decorated to add elevation to the layout. The Bliss can is a vintage coffee can. I love the name and the color. The little bird plate, is a thrift store find for $2.00 and it is Limoge. The biscuit jar is from my grandmother and she use to keep sugar in it. We don't use it, because I don't want it broken. *smile* I like the way the colors fell together. It looks really fresh and summery. I'll change it for fall. Oops, since taking this picture, I added posies to the vase.


Thank you for visiting, please come back. PS, don't forget to leave a message, please.

Hi, Trudi, about the Sophisticated Finishes. Do you have a Michaels near you? They have it, I know. You may have to buy a kit to find the Blackened Bronze. That's what I had to do, but they carry craft paint sizes of lots of colors. I use the Blackened & Blonde Bronze colors. Works great on so many things!

Nice collection you have there!

Hi Trudi,
This is Ellen b from the happy wonderer answering your question about the collage. I do the collages with picasa, then upload it to my pictures, then upload it to my photobucket etc. It isn't as complicated as it sounds...

Anita said...

Trudi, I adore your little kitty sitting on that nice box!

Just two weeks and you are back to school? Poor you, over here in this part of Germany, the summer holidays for the kids just started 10 days ago and they won't go back to school before the beginning of Sepember!

Best wishes,
Anita
