I have two things to show you today....
Some of you may remember this Black Hills ring that I showed on April 20, 2007. It was one of my first show and tells. Back in 1994, my brother was swimming in a lake and found this ring at the bottom of it. He gave it to me as long as I promised to give it back once he found a serious girlfriend. This past April he had been married for two years, so I figured it was about time to keep my end of the deal!
When I visited my parents on the east coast this past October, I left the ring with my mom, since my brother would be visiting at Christmas. He remembered the day at the lake and was surprised that I still had the ring! Here's the best part: He wants to me take the ring back! It is mine to keep! I will be happy to have it back safe and sound in my jewelry box.
Speaking of showing an item more than once, this little jeweled butterfly brooch is what started my love for show and tell.
I was six years old back in 1982, and my 1st grade teacher had a show and tell once a month.
I loved this butterfly brooch so much, I would bring it for every single show and tell. My poor teacher! The stones aren't real and a few are missing, but I treasure it and like to look at it once in a while as a reminder of my wonderful childhood.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
