Show & Tell Friday - Giveaway Coming Soon!

It's Show & Tell time again! Be sure to visit Kelli for other participant's wonderful collections. This week, I am showing my collection of fun finds and passed down beauties that is now on display in my kitchen.

Many of these items were given to me by my wonderful mom. The sailor is a bank that a boy gave her when she was younger that was a gift from a bank for opening an account. He had a crush on mom, little did he know it would be given to her daughter from another man. The donkey was my grandma Betty's and I don't know the story behind the dog. The little cups were a treasure find. The mussie tussie was the first one I ever made for a Fun Friday Challenge at Etsy Cottage Style. I am very proud of her!

More wonderful finds and gifts from mom and grandma. I love all of these little treasures, most are salt and pepper shakers. When I look at them, they give my face a little grin and a happy jump to my heart.

The single mouse belonged to my grandmother. My mom and I found it in the top of my grandfather's barn among lots of old papers and so much dust we literally could not breath. But come on, we were treasure hunting and no one besides grandpa has been up there in years. I, found gold! The other beauties are more treasure finds during my adventures in antique shops.

Hope my lovelies gave your hearts a smile too. Be sure to check back soon for my second ever giveaway. I will be posting all of the juicy details in a couple of days!

Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!

Great idea to cluster the small items on the 3 tier holder. Very cute.
