I Want to Show You!!

Today for Show and Tell at Kelli's I am showing a few different items that are new around our home.
You all know Katherine from Yellow Rose Arbor. She sent me a goody package and in it was this precious hanging pillow. Black and white. Most of you know I love that black and white! Katherine, you are so sweet, and the package came when I needed a bit of a boost!
The little pillow has the word HOPE dangling from it....a word that is very important to me.

The other item for Show and Tell today is another pillow. This one a friend from church, Melody, gave me Easter Sunday. Well, I am sure most of the congregation heard the squeal over this one. I wish pictures were more showing of how gorgeous this pillow is. There is embroidery all over. A little pocket, my initials and the cluster of buttons. I tell you, I LOVE this pillow. Melody is so talented. She never ceases to amaze me at what she can put together. And quite the talented piano player also! My husband and I just love her family of 3 boys! So, yep, she is busy enough just with that! Thank you so much Melody!

Remember me, when this you see.....

Do you see my initials? CK

Finally, I went to a few estate sales Thursday and I found this precious glass basket. It shines so pretty now that it is clean and I thought it looked so cute with the brown sugar cubes.
Don't forget to visit all the other Show and Tells. There is always something pretty to see or learn something new!

Thanks for posting the heart pillow I sent you! It was a "labor" of love for you!

The other pillow is very pretty too. Love the little crystal basket and sugar cubes!

I had to post twice on S&T, the first one was of the tablescapes (by mistake.) The second one is my S&T.

Hi Ceekay, I have had such fun catching up on your posts. I had to giggle at your hubby down on the floor fixing la Toliet. Too funny. That is something I would do, take pics like that.

I love your new gifts. The sweet black heart pillow with hope sign is adorable and the pillow your church friend made is precious. I see your initials too. Very special gifts.

I hope you are feeling good and improving each day. All your posts are wonderful. I hope to visit more now that my large custom order is finished.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck in my giveaway.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Everything looks lovely! Thank you so much for stopping by and making me feel good. Insecurity runs high on Thursdays..and I have only done three of these. Thanks so much also for your very sweet comment. I LOVED that tiny basket! And yes, it pairs perfectly with the little creamer!
The estate plates are something I would LOVE to own. I am on the lookout for those but so far nothing.
Have a wonderful day..
