Show and Tell Friday

Yesterday I went to my prayer meeting (yay!) and it was such a precious time of praying before the Lord's throne!  Wonderful fellowship with my praying sisters, too.  So, so happy to be back at these wonderful ministries.  I am blessed!

After I got done, I called hubby and we decided to go to our favorite thrift store again in search for the recliners that we need.  I went home, we hopped in the truck (well...I didn't hop, but you know what I mean) and off we went.  They did have two recliners at the store, but one was in really, really sad shape and the foot rest didn't even go all the way up.  The other one wasn't too bad, but when I reclined in it, it was obvious that it was on it's last leg when we heard the grinding noise as the chair reclined.  Oh, well.  We will continue to search and we will find!

I did find these beauties! I am a collector of fine bone china (when I can find it) and I love anything with roses, so these were quite a find for me!

This pretty little bowl was made in England and I just love it! It's about 5" in width and, although the roses are a teeny bit faded, it still speaks to my heart.  Then I found these sweet little dishes.  I'm quite sure that these are for nuts or mints at the bridge table or on the side table in the living room.  They are about 4" in width with a little rim that comes up enough to hold said mints or nuts.  These little jewels were made in America! Don't see that much anymore so was very happy to find these little dishes!

 Such pretty little roses on these little dishes!

They will look gorgeous on my side tables in my living room where I have lots of roses in paintings, on lamps, on little china lamps, etc.  Such perfect little finds and were cheap as chips!

Next, I'm going to show you a project I'm working on.  I'm not going to tell you what it is yet as I want to reveal the whole thing when it's finished, but let me say, it will look amazing when I'm done.  Right now, it's hard to tell what it is and the colors are pretty crazy, but when it's all finished, I think you're gonna love it!

Here's some pictures

I'm going to give you a hint - the yarn is wool, except for the eyelash yarn you see in a couple stripes.  I am still needing to add some more parts to this project, weave in the ends and wash it....That's all the hints I'm going to give.  =D  I should finish this project up by next Friday and then I'll give you the big reveal for next weeks Show and Tell.

Remember, you can link up your own blog at the end of this post and show off your own show and tell! Show your latest craft project, a decorating project, something you found or whatever!  It's fun to see what everyone is doing!

God bless you - Julie
