Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Is it really the end of the week already? Time seems to fly by so quickly this time of the year!  Mr. C and I have been to one party after another since last weekend! I'm not complaining...I'm having so much fun!  I could never be with a man that doesn't like to go out and have fun! As much as I love being at home I really enjoy a night out on the town! Last Saturday night we were at one of his client's parties in San Francisco and we had so much fun but we didn't get to sleep until 4:30 in morning! I thought those days of partying all night were gone but I guess you get a second wind at 50! haha!  It's really amazing when I think of all the fun things we've done together in the short time we've been dating (2 months and 2 weeks)!

Anyway...on to Show and Tell! This week I'm sharing trays! I love trays because there are so many different things you can do with them! Take a look....







and they aren't just for displaying things, you can also turn them into a chalkboard!

Trays really do pull a grouping together, don't they? Beautiful examples!

Hi Cindy, I have such a WEAKNESS for trays!! AND I have many of them! It's my newest thing to collect, I do believe. :) I love all the creative ways you are using your trays. Great ideas. I am showing a Christmas tree bread on a silver tray on my post today, as a matter of fact!

Hi Cindy,
I'm new to blogland so this is my first link up. I love your blog and am enjoying your perfume tray and glass domes. I have a photo too of perfume bottles on my post. They were my Grandmother and Mother's. Thanks for hosting this party.

Victoria said...

Cindy, with all you have going on with work, your daughter and now your man it's amazing that you're able to make anytime for this blog at all. Thank you for taking the time:)

There are so many blogs out there but your blog (along with Debbiedoos) always feels like home and familiarity to me:) You just exude so much warmth somehow.

I'm so glad you're having such a great time with Mr C and secretly hoping and praying that he's "THE ONE"!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful trays! I'm always inspired by looking at your displays. I especially love the tray of perfume bottles and toiletries and the tray used as a centerpiece on the dining room table with candles! Lovely!

BEAUTIFUL!!! Thanks hosting, Cindy! :)

Bohemian said...

Cindy I love all your trays full of lovely vignettes! Aren't portable vignettes the best kind!? I'm habitual about moving things around constantly and so I enjoy my vintage trays to be able to do a speed decorating change whenever the mood suits me!

Christmas Blessings... Dawn... The Bohemian

Cindy, I tried emailing you but it kept getting returned. Not sure if you will even remember me, but just wanted to tell you that I am still keeping up with your blog although I do not comment as much. I am SO HAPPY for everything great that has been going on in your life. I saw your beautiful new car, and thought it could not have gone to a more deserving lady. Love seeing all of your traveling, and now I am so excited to see you are dating a great guy. No one deserves experiencing all these amazing things more than you do. It is wonderful news!

Hi Cindy,
My name is Lorene I am new at blogging. I came across this beautiful dining room and not knowing who it belonged to I posted it on my blog as I loved it. I am in the process of redoing my dining room and wanted it to look a lot like yours. Carolyn informed me today that the dining room was yours. I wanted to write you and ask if you would like me to take it down, if not then I wanted to give you credit for it. Please let me know what works best for you. Your home is amazing I just love it. Please visit my site and let me know what you would feel comfortable with. If you would like me to take it down I understand completely. Have a wonderful Sunday, I look forward to hearing from you.
Lorene

Hi Cindy~ I have been offline a while due to computer problems.
I am so happy for you young lady
that you are having all that fun.
I love all of your trays, you are
the reason I have the tray on legs
in the middle of my table. Hope you
have a good week.

Kathie Truitt said...

Okay. So. Remember when I told you I hoped that Jo-Anne Coletti's catalogue was 'really good' because of the price? Oh! My! Goodness! It is WONDERFUL!!! I can not express to you how much I love this magazine. Ladies, if you haven't bought this yet you need to do it NOW!! Thank you, Debbie.

The Gilded Cherub said...

Cindy,
Thank you so much for writing back and for allowing me to keep your beautiful dining room up on my blog...I just love it. Painted the dining room white today almost finished! I hope I can get it close to yours!! I will be sure to get your name up on my site so everyone knows where this beautiful room came from. Your house is amazing thank you again.
