Show and Tell in My Best Kindergarten Voice

Make Mine Pink is having Show and Tell Mondays, which are certainly better than Hoops and YoYo's Sarcastic Wednesday's don't you think? Well, I am soooooooo busy, but I wanted to get in on the funnity fun fun. So, my pictures are a little ugly early, even though it is late Sunday night where I am, haha (ugly early, late Sunday, comprende?). I digress,(can you tell I am sleepy?) Anyhoo, I am making a new line of tags that are a little smaller than the altered art tags. Here are the first ones, hot off the craft table. They come in lots of four. The wording will be different on each set (on the little secondary tags at the top).

Much better in person I can assure you. Then there is the old market cart I bought at an antique sale recently. Fell in love at first sight....It is not relined yet, and the wheels are a little squeaky, but I think this is definitely a diamond in the rough. Don't you......Ooops, just noticed something wrong besides the darkness and bluriness of the picture. Can you tell what it is?

So, there you have my first Show and Tell Monday. Teacher may I be excused now. I think it's Sleepy Time....... I hope God forgives such idiotic silliness. You know what? He does, and I am so glaaaaaaaaaaaad...... Theresa

I love the tags but the shopping cart REALLY has my interest! :) I saw one recently that had such possibilities but passed it up. I can't wait to see the make over.
Thanks for showing and telling!

Hi Theresa, I am so behind I feel like I am spinning my wheels. I didn't know about "Show & Tell" Mondays so I just spent the last hour at MMP catching up on the forums. When I do a new blog I usually try and include some new item I have found for the boutique so maybe we can consider that "Show & Tell" any day of the week. :) Love, Love, Love your tags and I'll be happy to take that little cart off your hands for you. xo Lynn

Your killing me! I laughed so hard Theresa! You sound so much like me, I stay up in the wee hours of the morning, and find I can get pretty punchy myself. I tend to talk to myself outloud during late hours, more than once my DH has stepped out of the bedroom to ask who I was talking to, because I'm laughing at silly things I'm doing or thinking!

I gotta have that shopping cart! It's awesome! I love your tags too, but dang...I love that shopping cart! Wait, did I say that twice? lol..

Please tell Bitsy, Auntie Michelle will make her cupcakes if she picks three out of five of my words tomorrow~

You've said it best my friend.. Here's to Violet Scents and Linen Dreams~ Sweet Dreams~ xoxoxo
I'm pressing more linens in the morning,
