Show and Tell - Barrettes

Time for Kelli's Show and Tell, go here for lots more fun.

Since I mentioned using the cameo barrette as a napkin ring in last week's Show and Tell, I want to share all of the Victorian looking barrettes with you this week. Below are the four Victorian barrettes, shown as napkin rings.


The exciting thing about these is the price of each. You can see the price on these packages - $1.79!! I couldn't resist buying them at this price! The one on the right is a hair clip, I haven't decided how to use it yet. If you have any suggestions, please tell me. Below is a close-up of the clip, it has a gold stone in the center:

Also shown, below, is a pretty little hair decoration pin on a comb. It was just calling out to me to bring it home too! I also need suggestions of how to use this one. I have short hair, and I'm really too old to wear barrettes! :-)


Here is a close-up of the butterfly barrette.
They only had one of each design
This one below has a touch of pink:
And the cameo barrette:
I hope to have a tea party some day with a Victorian theme, and I will use these barrettes for the napkin rings.

Please read the following post, and contact me if you would like to join our prayer group!

Thank you!

Katherine

Katherine,

The barrettes are all so pretty and what a great idea to use them as napkin rings. I've certainly enjoyed your show and tell this week.

Each barette is a very nice design. Using them as napkin rings looks great!

What an awesome idea. Love to think out of the box. Can't wait to see how you set a table for a tea party!

Reminds me of the love story--the man who sold his watch to buy his wife a hair comb and she cut off her hair to buy a chain for his watch. They are very pretty. And great price too.

I am so jumping. I love this idea. Great show and tell!

Lady Katherine said...

Thanks for coming by my blog, I love the napkin rings you have made. I thought all my creative part was gone. But you inspire me. I think the barrett would be wonderful as a brooch, to use on a jacket or a scarf.

This is such a cute and original idea! I especially like the little butterflies.

Now THAT is THE MOST clever idea I've seen in a LONG time!!! Wow...it makes the table setting look so Victorian. Love this concept.

Stop by my show and tell when you have time, I'd love to have you visit with me this fine day. Happy weekend to you!!!

Good morning, Katherine -
What a clever idea! Those are gorgeous. I never would have thought to use them for napkin rings. Now I'll be on the lookout for some pretties for my table.

What a great idea to use barettes as napkin rings. I never thought of that. They are beautiful and only $1.79!

What a great idea to use the barrettes as napkin rings. I agree with Lady Katherine - I think the clip would look nice on a scarf.

Okay, that's just brilliant! I'll be copying you.

Those are so pretty!! I like to wear my hair up, so I'd use them that way, but I like the clever way you are using them too!

Mam said...

Wowee! Those are so gorgeous and what an idea! I love looking at Big Lots for things like that. They often have antique-y or gaudy jewelry and hair accessories that lend themselves to unique uses like this. Good job!

The barrettes are such a great idea for decorating the napkins!
