Show & Tell Friday...All Bottled Up!

I was a Walmart...supposed to be buying "just the basics"
you know, but I found these...


...how could I resist??? How cute are they???
And they were $2.97!


At first I wasn't really sure which direction I wanted
to go....I had too many ideas....




But as I looked around at all my bits & bobs, I
soon focused on a cool, pastel-y, wintery theme...







I got this paper from a magazine ad quite a while
ago...It's so pretty & old fashioned, I knew I find
a use for it!!






I always have to make a pink something!!!


With a bit of vintage wallpaper and a vintage earring.






And a frosty white & silver scene...






...with glass glitter & tiny vintage bulbs.








All in all, a nice way to unwind after a hectic trip
to Walmart! :)

Hurry over to
THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

for more show & tell fun!
