Show and Tell Friday

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday hosted by Kelli click on the button and go and visit her and all the other wonderful Show and Tells.
Today I am showing two things.

I was inspired today by some other Show and Tell post to show a tiny treasure.

Here is one of my tiny treasures. It is a little angel bunny that is meant to sit on a flower pot but I just think it is adorable on the pretty little night light. Which BTW I love too. This photo was taken in the old house. The light is still in the hall bathroom but the bunny is in the master this time. I'll show a photo soon I hope.

And next something a little different. Things are changing around here. This used to be in the kitchen
There is quite a bit of history following this desk. It is actually two pieces. A desk with a bookcase on top. The bookcase was originally in the house I grew up in. It sat in the living room behind the front door and originally was stained pine I think. It held my mother and dads treasured set of encyclopedias. Which BTW I used all growing up. My mother almost had heart failure when I threw them away. BTW she doesn't throw anything away.

The desk I acquired elsewhere and I'll share more about that later. This is the second Show and Tell installment of this desk. Check back next week to read the saga of the desk. I'll give you a hint. It isn't in the kitchen and it is getting a makeover.

I hope you have enjoyed a little peek into part of my tiny treasures and I hope that I have peeked your curiosity to come back and see the treasures that are here.

This is my new house! I just love it. I called it a cottage because it just looks like one. It is behind a white wood fence in the country. Come back and visit and hopefully soon I'll host a tour.

Have a wonderful Show and Tell Friday over at Kelli's

I like your cottage. My parents never threw anything away either. I couldn't believe all the stuff when we had to clean out their house and out buildings.

Congratulations on your new home :). What a wonderful desk to have in your new home, I can't wait to see what you do with it, perhaps you can hang your angel bunny on it somewhere :)...your poor Mother, I remember Britannica's as I used them as well, now everything is available online, if only we had that in our day :).
