Hi Karen, Thanks for sharing all your beautiful pictures. I enjoyed them all. I have a window frame just like your friends. Do you know who the pattern is by for the flowers? I love them. So far, I have not been able to find something I like for my window.

Hi Karen. Yes, it is a drizzly Monday in Minnesota today. I just tell myself that this wonderful rain will help turn things green. Yeah!

I am excited that you are going to have things at the Antique Mall. I do try to stop there when I head into Fargo. I will be keeping my eyes open for you. :o)

Tell your friend Faye, that I love her house and decor. Would you girls come to my house and help me with my decor? Sometimes I feel like I am decorating challenged. Does that make sense? LOL

Another great post.
Have a great week.

Great post, like a big ole show-n-tell! Thanks for sharing.


HI Karen, I just had to comment on how fun it is to read your blog and see all the photos and inspiration in it! It is especially a great way to start an otherwise run-of-the-mill Monday. Thanks! oh, I can't wait to see the pillow...


I Loved the Show-N-Tell. I will look for your pillow pattern when it is available. Do you know is Faye's pattern for the flowers in the window a Joined at the Hip pattern?


What a fantastic show and tell...your group is something...what inspiration. How exciting that you are going to be in the antique mall...wish I lived closer...I'd be shopping.
I'd forgotten about Dirt...I used to make that all the time for Josh and his friends. They loved it...Andy and I were pretty fond of it too as I recall...LOL!

Covered Porches

Where to start--- Loved the window.. I would love to do that one day. Soundslike you had so much fun...Great photos. Thanks for sharing.


Wow! GREAT pictures! I love Denise's quilts. And the big/little blocks. And the valance. and the adorable little bag you made. I love it all! Oh! And especially those cute flowers in the window -- what a great idea. I have an old window -- I never thought about doing quilt blocks in it -- how fun! I hope you and hubby are having a contest over who's right about the snowfall LOL!


WOW Karen I love every last thing you showed us. I wanna make a valance now for my dining room. Adorable!! Love that window frame with the flowers in it too. I have a window like that, it's empty of course. LOL!! Actually I have a couple of those. Your little bag is toooooo cute. And I can't wait to see your pillow pattern. And did I hear give away???? WOOOHOOOOO Fayes house is wonderful!! Thanks Faye for letting Karen photo it.

What a great 'show-and-tell'! And I loved your little bag..think I've got that same pattern somewhere..lol! Your friend has a lovely home...all those quilts in the cupboard!!...Thankyou for sharing!


Good morning Karen! I love quilts but don't quilt. It's always a pleasure when you post Show & Tell's.

I enjoyed the tour of Faye's home!



Another great show and tell . . . can I come live with you *s*

Even at the ripe age of 28 - The Princess still puts in regular requests for dirt cake. And she's not satisfied to just have the 'cake' but requires gummy worms, or a sand pail presentation, or the like *s*


I am always amazed at everything you and your friends have created. It looks like a lot of fun was had by all! Linda


I loved looking at all the pictures. You must have owning a lovely home as a requirement for all your friends, LOL. Your little bag is really cute.


I love those quilts, you are so lucky to be around such great fun :)


Thanks for sharing all the photos--they're very inspiring!

How I wish I had the decorating gene! Lovely house your friend has. Thank you for sharing!


Hi Karen ! Long time no post from me. Love Show-n-Tell, please tell your fellow show-n-tellers, thank you for sharing! Um. Your pillow is ADORABLE! Love it. And I love the pictures of the trees full of birds nests! Oh My! And I'm gonna have to try your Bananan Cupcakes! I love Banana bread. I never thought of frosting it ! LOL. Is there anything that Cream Cheese frosting doesn't make better ? In fact, have you seen that Cream Cheese Pie in a tub from Philadelphia? Oh my goodness. Spread some of that on a graham cracker or shortbread cookie. mmmm... Have a A Great Weekend! Oh yeah, we put out our patio furniture and it promptly snowed! I cannot even remember it ever snowing this late here. Strange, strange weather.


Wow what a great house!! And such cute quilts everyone showed. Your purse is so cute...the green looks fine! Thanks for the great pics!

Love that bag you made. I am going to check out the pattern but I really am knee deep in bag patterns I never made.

The shower curtain is great. Thanks for posting all those pictures.

I see from you next post that you had more snow. Sorry about that. Do you think good weather will ever get there?

Michelle Payne

Love the pillow you made. It's so adorable. I also really love the flowers in the wood window. Is there a place online where I can purchase the pattern?
