"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.
While visiting Ontario, Canada this past month, the girls and I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra, from Ravenhill Cottage and her husband, Bill. I met Sandra in a Letter Writing Yahoo group several years ago and we have become good friends. I was so excited to finally get to meet her in person! Sandra and her husband were nice enough to pick the girls and I up at my sister's house and we had lunch at the Swiss Chalet.
Sandra is just as sweet as I expected and we had a wonderful time visiting. Before we knew it, two hours had passed!
Here we are after lunch. It had just started raining, which explains why the girls are squinting!

During lunch Sandra surprised me with these two beautiful hankies!
Aren't they so pretty and delicate?!
Thank you, Sandra! They are the perfect tokens of our wonderful visit together!
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
