Show and Tell Sunday

I have seen a few blogs that have something they call show and tell Sunday. Since I am new to blogging, I have never done one of these, but it sounds like a lot of fun so I wanted to get in on it.
For my Show and Tell Sunday I am showing my craft bin. I found this pretty hot pink rose fabric, some lace and some ribbon.

Here is my bin before I sorted it all out.
Some more fabrics and lace.

I have a ton of these little wooden cut-outs. The gold beaded dangly things are napkin rings from my MIL. But I thought they would be better in some kind of craft. This end table is one of my favorites. I refinished it myself. The table itself was free, it just needed some pretty paint and some appliques.

These are curtain tie-backs, but I know they will have another more creative use one day!! I also found a few rolls of ribbon.

I have lots of Victorian Scraps. I absolutely love them. I can never get enough scraps. They are so useful in so many crafts. I am always on the lookout for new ones. Expecially some with pink roses and cute children pictures. I also love the ones with cute animals doing funny things.
I found a few heart shaped doilies too. Farm theme scraps and roosters are another favorite. I think I will use these for some Easter art.

I have lots of scraps. They are from Germany. I love doing decoupage with these. They have such beautiful colors, and most of them have pretty pink roses too. I have been thinking of some new ideas to use these for, maybe an altered book. I have never made one before, but I've been thinking up some ideas for a couple lately.

Some of my rosey appliques.
I bought these, but I want to learn how to make my own appliques one day.

Tons of pretty pansies!! A huge bag full of them in lots of colors.

I have lots of treat bags in different colors. I made these tiles, one of my decoupage projects.

I have been saving these pretty pink pieces of glass for a mosaic project one day. I have a few buttons. I plan to look for some vintage buttons on my next trip to the thrift shop. I love these ladybugs. Aren't they cute??



I gave my blog a makeover. Let me know what you think about the new background and header. I think it added a little well-needed color. And...well pink will always be my favorite.

I will be back soon.
