Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

I didn't have a chance to take any new photos for my Show and Tell this week so I thought I would use these photos that have been on my blog in the past to share one of my favorite things in my home. I purchased this silver-plated bowl for only $2.99 at a thrift store last year. I love it because it's so versatile!
I've filled it with many different things...even camellias and floating candles as seen above! Or covered with a cloche as seen below...

It even looks great with shells...
I think this was the best $2.99 I've ever spent!

I love your home. It has such a soothing and relaxing decor.
I have shared a recent gift on my blog this week.
I am in Memphis for the weekend and about to visit my favorite antique/resale shop. I'm hoping to find a treasure at a great price.
