"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.
Hello everyone! We arrived at my parent's house earlier this morning and have been having lots of fun. Since I'm on vacation I wasn't planning on participating today, but then I saw all of my mom's teapots and had to share them. :0)
My parents live in a 1925 Tudor style home and have this wonderful built-in cabinet in their dining room. My mom has her Bunnykin dishes on the top shelf and several teapots on the middle shelf.
Marjolein Bastien is one of my favorite artists. There is a sweet scene of nuthatches at a feeder on this teapot.
Who doesn't love Peter Rabbit? :0)
A beautiful rooster teapot, along with a sugar bowl and creamer.
A teapot for two.
We have already had tea in this pretty pot twice today!
I think this rooster teapot is so fun!
And finally, this may be my favorite one. My mom found this lemon teapot at the resale store for $1.75!
Thank you for looking at my mom's teapots!
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!
Please type only your first name into Mr. Linky (not your blog name or what you are showing). This will make the list easier to read. Thank you!
