"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 would like to show you my special Princess Diana books...
My mom got these books in the early 80's, and I spent many hours looking at them when I was a little girl.
I was only five when Diana got married, but when I was around nine or 10, we went over to a friend's house and their grandma had a VHS tape of her wedding. I thought it was so magical and watched every second of it.
Of course, I didn't know about her struggles and sad times, she was just a beautiful princess, married to her Prince Charming.
I also have a couple of magazines and a newspaper article from when the world said goodbye to her, on August 31, 1997. I remember it was a Sunday morning, I was pregnant with Grace and Phillip was sound asleep, so I just sat and stared at the television for hours.
Anyways, I didn't mean for this to be a sad show and tell! When I was little, some of my favorite pictures were of Diana's beautiful sapphire and diamond ring. My love of jewelry began early. :0)
Seeing these pictures again reminded me of the ring that Phillip gave me a few years ago.
It's a special keepsake of our 10th wedding anniversary! Thank you for looking at my show and tell!

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
-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.
-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. Also, do not put an additional Show and Tell Mr. Linky in your post.
