It's Show and Tell Monday again!

How can one week possibly go by so quickly? It's Show and Tell Monday once again! This is a great idea started by Kathleen at Set To A Tea. It's so fun to share what we have been working on this week and see the other great projects in the works of all our other friends at Make Mine Pink! If you interested in showing what you've been up to, or what projects you are working on, jump in and join the fun! Just post a comment with your link so we can take a look!

Besides our online business, we also manage Estate liquidations, so we spent the week preparing for an estate sale. As you can see from the photo's, there were some lovely things. As I was processing the cedar chest(which was full of wonderful vintage clothes) I came across this little pocket photo. It was in a small tooled leather case with a hook type closure. Inside, you can see the beautiful tooled gold filigree around the photo. This was not just a photo under glass though. It looked like it was layered or 3d with coloring added. I did allot of research trying to find out what kind of process was used, but I couldn't find anything. So if you have any idea, be sure and let us know. I am glad the family ended up with them, as I am sure they are a treasured heirloom!

We have a new contest starting on MMP and will be posting that soon, so check back for details! Blessings to you!

What an undertaking your estate sale must have been. But to have been able to unwrap and discover the treasures must have been oodles of fun. Thanks for sharing.
