Show Me Wednesday--Your Newest Collection

Welcome to Show Me~Wednesday!

And here I am late again! It's been a busy morning and I knew I should have gotten this posted last night, but I forgot all about it then. I will try to be on time next week--really!

Here's how it works....Each week we have a theme of what we would like to see. Snap a photo for us and post it on your blog and then fill out the Mr. Linky near the bottom of the post with your blog name and blog addy and it'll automatically add you to the list so other bloggers can come and see what you are sharing.

Feel free to add the banner above to your post (right click and save it to your own computer please), so it makes it easier for guests arriving at your blog to find your Show Me~ Wednesday post.

Each week we'll also list the theme for the coming week--at the very bottom of the post, so you can prepare and be ready to share!

Don't forget and leave comments where you visit. We all love to hear from our visitors.

This Weeks Theme--Show Me Your Newest Collection

I don't know about you, but I have many, many collections, however I recently discovered that I have a thing for crocheted butterflies and I now have 3 pieces and 3 items that are alike constitute a collection. Did you know that?

This one above is a dresser scarf that has 4 crocheted butterflies on it--one in each corner and it hangs on an old wood hanger in my bathroom. Don't you just love that shade of orange sherbert on my walls--I don't--but that's another story.....

Then I have this little brown butterfly that is the corner of a pale yellow hankie. I need to figure out where to put it. I really think I need more, lot's more--of course!--so I can make a nice display of some sort with them.
I also have the great big crocheted one that I posted about a couple of weeks ago HERE.

So as I’m out on treasure hunts crocheted butterflies is one more thing to add to my long list of collecting. The next thing I would like to add is linens with the big skirted ladies on them. I don’t have any of those--yet!

Ok, your turn. What is your newest collection? How did you start it? How long have you been collecting it--maybe weeks, months or in the past year or so. We wanna know and we wanna see photos! So please make sure that you post photos on your blog and then add your name and blog URL to the Mr. Linky box below. Your name will appear on the list as a link, so others can click on your name and be whisked off to your blog and see what you have to share.

Next Week's Theme
Show Me Your-- Wedding Photo

If anyone has any suggestions of what you'd like to see in future Show Me Wednesdays, then please post it here and I'll add it to the list.

Thank you!

I love those butterflies!!!! I always admire them when they are on the corners of hankies, etc. Usually, I see them done in that varigated floss. Anything crocheted, and I grab it. Especially those old Southern Belle insets on the pillowcases and dresser scarves!

Thanks for sharing your things today!
