"Show and Tell Friday!"
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
Today I would like to show you two of my special rings. This first ring was a gift from my parents, for my 10th birthday. I'm sure they thought it would be lost by now, but here it is!
The center stone is a ruby and with four diamonds around it. It only fits on my pinky finger now!
This amethyst (my birthstone) ring is also from my parents. They know what I like. ;0) I received it on Christmas day, 1993. It is a special reminder of my last Christmas at home, I got married 6 months later.
Thank you for looking at my special rings!
Show and Tell Guidelines
What is Show and Tell Friday?
Show and Tell involves showing something to an audience, and then telling them about it. Your show and tell must be something that you own, and is in your home or garden.
What items work well for Show and Tell Friday?
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
-A collection you may have
-A piece of jewelry
-A special gift
-A favorite treasure
What doesn't work well for Show and Tell Friday?
-Posts with no photos have no "Show." Please don't use them.
-Photos of events (trips, vacations, celebrations, etc.)
-Photos of things you are selling or planning to sell.
-Photos found on the internet, graphics or screenshots. Please use photos you take yourself.
There is no place like home is the original home of Show and Tell Friday. Please do not host your own.
Please do not feel that you have to participate every Friday.
How can I participate?
Once you've got your photo(s) and your story, it's easy as 1-2-3!
1 - Publish your "Show and Tell" on your blog, including a link back to There is No place like Home. If you don’t know the link code, email me and I will send it to you.
2 - Copy the link (or "permalink") from your post.
3 - Add it to Mr. Linky, along with your first name. I usually put Mr. Linky up on Friday at 12:00am Eastern time.
That's it! After that, you can start visiting all the other Show and Tell participants!
