Show and Tell Friday

Show and Tell This show and tell is fun. I enjoy seeing everyones goodies.



Back in May, we went to visit our daughter and sil in TN. Dd and I(that's us in the photo above. I know it crazy blurry but I love it anyway) went to a few yardsales there and I found some wonderful things. Here are two of those.
I love this pillow. I think it's called crewel embroidery. Has a down pillow inside. Love the colors of it.




Isnt' this the cutest little thing?
It's sterling, with copper and gold accents. It's hollow, the little windows are cut out. It does have a mark on the back. I asked a jeweler and he said he thought it was German. Another jeweler told me to look up "assays and trademarks". I didn't find anything like what the marks look like but did find some German marks of the flower and the 3 little flowers together. I think it is just too cute. I have worn it a few times but need to find a different chain to put it on.

Good Afternoon Patty :),

What lovely things you found! I think the blurry photo is precious. Doesn't it amaze you what some people sell at yard sales?

Have a Fantastic Friday!

Nice finds. I love that little pillow. I've been making some out of some old linens that I have. I think pillows add such 'charm' to a home. Thanks for sharing!
