Show and Tell

I thought I would do a bit of a colourful show and tell today as I don't have any new crafty makes to show you yet - I will have soon once they are completed! I have my February Hearts and Love swap to complete, and another little something I need to get working on.

Anyway, I know I personally love a bit of show and tell, it was one of my favourite things at school. I remember I once brought in a set of Russian Dolls for show and tell and lost the smallest dolly, I was devastated! So today the show and tell is from the safety of my room, and the theme is red.

I don't actually have alot of red things, I don't really wear red as I don't think it suits me that much. I do have some red shows that I have worn into the ground but I'm sure that you don't want to see that pretty sight!

These are the red things in my bedroom, some Cath Kidston bits that my lovely dad bought for me, and the bargain £6 bag! The spotty red scarf that I got given for Christmas, a mini Emma Bridgewater tin that held some sweeties, and a tin hanging heart that I got in France.

The Cath Kidston thing holds my camera, and the tin heart hangs with my bags on my peg hook. Now if I was to show you all the red stuff in my house there would be an awful lot as its my mums favourite colour. Maybe I will save that post for another day X

  14. Loving your red pretties xxx
    I nearly bought a tray in that EB design today (but it had a scratch and was the last one so I didn't!!)
    I have quite a bit of red and was eyeballing a red sofa in John Lewis today for when I can persuade OH we need to change ours.....don't hold your breath there :)!!!

  15. I love it all. I adore red and I love spotty things - so the scarf really does it for me. I have the little Bridgewater tin and use it every day - it's beautiful.


  16. I remember reading your blog and then searching for Tiger but still didnt make the connection when I saw the bowls.

    We live miles and miles away from the nearest Tiger - it makes you wonder how they found there way up here !!

    Love the show and tell - i love red.
