"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.
Hello everyone! A few weeks ago when Grace and I were on our way to get some groceries, we saw a yard sale sign. Of course, we did the right thing and stopped. :0)
We found eight of these Magnolia teacup luncheon sets!
I love the little bud inside the cups.
They are in perfect condition and we got all eight for $10.00.
I also found this huge tablecloth, just lying on the driveway. I will have to put in my extra table leaf for it to fit properly. It is covered with embroidery, cutwork and crocheted lace, all hand done!
Here is a close-up of the back. As you can see the stitches are very neat.
Beautiful roses and cutwork.
Even the sides have embroidered roses.
The lady who was selling it said a relative made it sometime in the 50's, but she wasn't too eager to share any more information. She actually seemed embarrassed to be getting rid of it, but I happily gave her $5.00 and will be sure to treasure it!
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
