"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.
I am still at my Mom's house, so I will show a few treasures from her china cabinet.
This beautiful pottery teapot set was made by my grandpa in the 1970's.
His workshop was down in the basement and I remember looking at all of his finished pieces. Sometimes he would let my siblings and I practice on his pottery wheel. It was always harder than it looked!
He signed his name on the bottom of each piece.
Several weeks ago I shared my Great Grandmother Irene's miniature woodstove. She was my Grandpa's mother and she also made pottery. Here are a few of her tiny teacups.
Her nickname was Rene (pronounced Ree-nee), so that is what she wrote on the bottoms.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell! We are coming back home tomorrow, so I'll be back to my regular blogging schedule soon. :0)
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!
