"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.
We have a surprise guest host for Show and Tell today! My daughter, Grace is hosting because it's her birthday !! That's right, my baby is 10 years old now! Grace picked three special things to share with us today...
The first thing I want to show you is my gold baby bracelet.
My Grandma gave it to me when I was about 3 months old.
This is me wearing the bracelet at my baby dedication. It was huge when I was little, but now it doesn't fit at all!
This is probably the most special thing I own. This is my doll, Molly. I got her when I was 2 years old.
Here she is under the Christmas tree.
On trips and vacations I always bring her with me, even on airplanes.
This is my favorite teacup. The first thing I drank in it was milk on Christmas morning.
To me this kind of bird looks like a snowbird, so I call it my "snowbird teacup".
Thank you for looking at my special things!
Happy Birthday Grace!
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. Go HERE for the "Show and Tell" picture code to copy and paste into your post.
2 - Copy the link (or "permalink") from your post.
