Show and Tell Friday - new store pics

Kelli-show and tell Friday It's Show and Tell Friday.
Go on over to Kelli's House to see the rest of the great posts.
ThanksKelli, for being such a great hostess.

Here is the latest bird nest to show up at our place.
It is in a big, old fashioned candle holder.
What is a bid nest doing in there?
Well, you know those birds will build a nest just about anywhere.

And here is our mantle, partly done.

And a close up of it.
See the nest tucked into the ivy?
What about the one on the branch poking up out of that brass container?
Here is a vintage purse.
And beautiful vintage tea set.

Hmm, guess i should have saved those for next week's vintage Thursday. =0)

Blessings and have a wonderful weekend.

I love all your vintage things! Thank you for posting the idea about putting a birds nest in the lantern! I have a lantern and I could just not figure out what to put in it! Yay!

All the best,

Hi Barbara Jean,
Don't you just love where the birds pick to build their nests? What a perfect viewing spot though!
All your items are so pretty I can't pick my favorite!

Barb, I like the mantle. Was it like that while I was there yesterday or had you put that together after I left? I sure do like your nest in the lantern, looks great!! Sheri from the store.

Your mantle is just gorgeous. I have to admit that I am "mantle challenged". I can never get mine looking like I want.

I am drawn to your mantle creativity! Such a tough thing for me to do. Love it.
