"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.
Many of your know Anita from My Country Cottage Garden. She shares her amazing garden and sewing projects with us quite often for show and tell. I received a special package from her today, all the way from Germany!
Even the envelope is beautiful.
A pretty gift tag.
Some Christmas tea called "Fireplace Heat" and Blue Sweet Pea seeds from her garden.
She also included these four *beautiful* white hankies for me to add to my collection!
Each one has amazing detail work and delicate lace.
I have really enjoyed getting to know Anita this past year though blogging, email and letters. She is very sweet and I appreciate her friendship and thoughtfulness!
Thank you for all the lovely gifts, Anita! I shall think of you as I drink my tea and dream of your Blue Sweet Peas growing in my garden next summer.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
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
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.
-Old photos of just people instead of things.
There is no place like home is the original home of Show and Tell Friday. Please do not host your own.
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.
2 - Copy the link (or "permalink") from your post.
3 - Add it to Mr. Linky, along with your first name only. (This will make the list easier to read.) I usually put Mr. Linky up on Friday at 12:00am Eastern time.
