Friday's Show and Tell

For my Show and Tell this week I just wanted to show a couple new purchases. I absolutely had to have these glasses from Pier One. The front of the glass is like a chalk board. Too cute!

These placements I bought at the Dollar Tree. To me, they remind me of Laura Ashley kind of linens. I love all the pleats. Can't wait to use them.

Finally, this is my Key wall in the hallway. I have a "thing" for keys. These I bought 2 years ago at Kirkland. The door knocker was from our old house. We have a steel door and wasn't putting it outside, so I thought I would put it inside!
I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of my "things". Have a great weekend!

I love your "Things!" I was just in Pier 1 last week, wish I had looked for the glasses. I must go to Dollar Tree and see if they have these pretty placemats.

Love the key wall!

Fun, fun, fun. I've never seen "me" and "you" glasses before. I really like that idea. Your placemats are very pretty. Dollartree, really? Are you kidding? I would have never guessed. Wow!

What cool glasses! I couldn't quite understand what you were describing on the phone about the glasses with chalkboards! And I LOVE the placemats! Gosh, no one would guess they came from a dollar store. Great finds, C!...Kathy

You mean that you can actually 'change' the text on the glasses? How unusual and quite clever...I like the concept!

Great show n tell. Those are gorgeous placemats...for a buck? Wow!!!!

I love the chalkboard glasses! (I would consider myself "me", though). ;-)

I love that place mat, especially the lace at the side. How elegant!! And those little glasses are so cute. I miss Kirkland's -- they closed the one near us.

I love those placemats. I didn't see any like them when I was there last week.
Your glasses are unique, and I love the key wall.

Wow, a key wall, I've never seen such huge keys before... I especially like the white placements, so pretty! What a pity that I live over here in Europe and don't have the chance to drop by the nearest Dollar Tree...

Blessings, Anita

I would LOVE to have your keys! Those are so, SO cool!! (I have a thing about keys, too, but I don't own any to show for it. Maybe someday...) The glasses will be lots of fun for using with guests. I'll bet you like to entertain! (Me too, I just don't have much time!) The placemats are a great find. I'm amazed at the good deals I discover at dollar stores. I try to stay out of those places, otherwise I spend way too much trying to save money.

Those glasses are great! So many fun things that could be written on them. I have a feeling we'd get pretty ornery in my house with those.

The Key hallway looks really nice too!

Heather said...

Those glasses are adorable, and I love the placemats too! Isn't it amazing what treasures you can find at a dollar store? Your key wall is so creative. I enjoyed visiting your blog today. Thank you for sharing your special things with us! Blessings ~ Heather

Kelli said...

Ooh....the placemats are so pretty, I may have to go to the dollar store. :0) I also love your wonderful keys and the glasses are so cute!

Those glasses are so cool. You could place them on a table for place cards and everybody would know what glass was theirs, how neat. You just never know what treasures you will find at the dollar tree. I love that store. I use keys in decorating all the time. You've got some great keys and I really like that you put the door knocker on the wall.

I love the place mats also. Dollar Tree has some nice things. I've bought towels and napkins there.. Yesterday I noticed they had some with a patriotic theme.

Hui Ceekay, Your show and tell items are wonderful. I love the keys on the wall where the temp. control it. Those walls are always a challange when those controls are right in the middle of the wall. Those placemats from the Dollar Tree are wonderful. I will have to look for those.
Love the glasses. What a great idea for a casual dinner with friends.

I love the glasses. I'm a key person too especially now with this house. We actually have the original 1892 'skeleton' keys for the front doors.
