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.
I have two treasures to show you today. They were both given to me by my Great-Grandma. I was still very young when she passed away, so I don't remember her very well, but I do have memories of visiting her at her nursing home quite often.
This is a small devotional book for Mothers. I didn't appreciate this book growing up, but I'm glad I hung onto it, now that I have children of my own.
Several of my signatures on the inside cover. Maybe I was practicing?
I received this book in 1982.
I was six years old.
My Great-Grandma left me this tiny heart necklace and I have kept it safe in my jewelry box for many years.
The gold has tarnished in spots, but I think it is still sweet. Thank you for looking at my show and tell and have a wonderful weekend!
