"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'm going to show you my fireplace. Exciting isn't it? ;0) It has had a bit of a makeover recently.
It also got a good cleaning and I removed the black frame around the hearth.
I love a real wood fire, but thought I would try something new this winter. I already had the black candle holder and found these jar candles for $1.00 each.
And instead of the black frame I put up a fireplace screen.
The makeover took place back in October and we have really enjoyed the cozy candlelight!
Now it is decorated for Christmas. Stockings hung and a mini Christmas tree on the hearth. I also switched out the vanilla candles for red cranberry ones.
Thank you for looking at my new fireplace!

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.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:
-A collection you may have

-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.
-Old photos of just people instead of things.
