Friday Show and Tell

Friday has come round again so quickly, Show and Tell always reminds me of the time when my kids were much younger, in the first few years of their schooling, they used to have to take something from home to school to show and tell. By the end of the school year, they would be scratching their heads trying to come up with something new and fresh to take and show the class. But Show and Tell is nonetheless a wonderful way kids learn public speaking, curb their stage fright, (if any) and show their thought processing skills. Well, fortunately with our Show and Tell, I'll have neither public speaking nor stage fright to worry about, and I don't think I'll run out of things to share either. Today I'd like to show you some vignettes I created with roses and some simple props I used from around the house. These oil and vinegar set and the white coffee mug are some of my favourite things. I just love the style! The candlesticks are old old ones which were painted white and distressed, excellent props for adding interest! This potpourri pouch is a gift from my sister, it usually hangs on one of our door knobs. So precious and pretty! These fabric hearts were given to me eons ago by a dear friend, I've since had to change the cord as the old one broke, I replaced it with a string of pearls. Little birdies like this one is simply gorgeous! And a Scabiosa for you to say adieu and happy weekend. Please visit Kelli at There's no place like home to see other show and tells, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Roses used here: Jude the Obscure (apricot), Radio Times (pink) and non rose Scabiosa (lilac perennial)

Thanks for stopping by for TEA...

and, while my foot is feeling a bit better each day...almost 3 weeks after the attack, the worst hurt foot (the right) is still bruised, sore and swollen, top and bottom.
