Show And Tell

My creation, originally uploaded by bluebirdsandteapots.

When I was in Kindergarten I just loved Show and Tell. I find that it is so much fun still to show and tell the many wonderful finds in Blogland.

Kathy of Kathy's Cottage makes beautiful things for her Etsy shop. I just peeked at a brand new post and she has created another wonderful creation. I just love how she photographs her beautiful things on her Etsy shop. I recently bought this lovely bluebird for my mother. I plan on giving it to her on Mother's Day, but for now she sits on my creative baker's rack for me to enjoy.

Kathy also sent me these lovely tags, which I added to my Garland of Creativity. The Garland of Creativity was created to hang across my Baker's Rack to fill me with inspiration as I am reminded of all the artistic spirits that live in Blogland.

Here is my inspirational garland...while I am in the kitchen and I pass by, it is a reminder to create something every day.


Natasha Burns CreationNow hold onto your socks...Natasha Burns has recently been designing these wonderful creations. She prints her beautiful dress designs on Vintage sheet music and sells these beauties on her boutique. OMG, it is sooooo gorgeous.

Donna from Donna's Art paints beautiful things. I bought this wonderful bird painted on a wood with a built in easel. He sits on my mantle near the window next to all my nests and bird collection. Her Etsy shop has great artwork, and it looks like Donna loves to paint incredible creations on many different surfaces.

I love my garland that hangs across the baker's rack in my kitchen. Here is a beautiful tag and embellished key that I bought from Louise of Beachy Cape Cod Cupboard. Besides creating wonderful photo challenges for all of us to enjoy, her creative treasures are just beautiful on her Etsy Shop.

Wendy'sI couldn't resist when Wendy of Windy Angels was opening up her new Etsy shop called Angels Dreams. Here is her lovely blue ATC card, which I hung on my garland.

Doesn't it look sensational next to Natasha's creation? She included lots of wonderful blue papers and gave me a beautiful cards as well.

I couldn't leave this post without sharing some gorgeous new creations my sister, Susan is selling on her Etsy Shop. The cutest ever cupcake hats for babies, which she named Angel Food Cake and Pink Icing Cupcake Hat. She really has a gorgeous post about it on her blog called One Knit One Purl.


My friend Judy of JuJuz Beads on Etsy has added a bunch of new bracelets to her shop.

I love daisiesThe name of this song is Please Don't Eat The Daisies, sung by Doris Day. She sung this in one of my favorite old movies.
Here is a clip for that movie:
