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 to two "new-to-me" porcelain boxes to share with you today.

The flowers make me think of a summer morning in a rose garden.

Gold trim
The smaller box has a 24 K gold scalloped rim.

The larger box is my favorite and would be perfect for holding teabags or maybe chocolates. :0)

A close-up of the roses.

Pretty lilacs.


Have you ever heard of "China Charm by Fawn?"

China Charm
I have looked all over the internet and can't find a single thing about it!

For now they are on my dining room hutch, but I may move them to my letter writing desk to hold pens, stickers and stamps.

Thank you for looking at my show and tell!

~*~*~Show and Tell idea for next week: A special item in your bedroom.~*~*~

Hi!! I love the colors in the boxes...especially the roses. So delicate! Beautiful.

My Show n Tell is bone china cardinals this week. And especially a favorite...a cardinal music box.

The show n tell is following a set of photos of a tornado that ripped through where my nephew lives!!! I had to post those first since it's family!! So, scroll down.

Happy weekend, and for the Americans, have a safe holiday!

Beautiful boxes. I love porcelain things. Love the flowers on them.

I enjoyed seeing your beautiful china boxes. I have never heard of that brand name and wonder if they were handmade. I made porcelain boxes as gifts one year at Christmas. I kept one for myself and will post it sometime for show and tell.

Thanks for hosting. I always enjoy seeing what others post.

Grand Life said...

I've posted my "Show and Tell" and left a link to your site. Thanks for sponsoring such a fun activity. Your china box's are very pretty. I've been fortunate as my Mom is a well known china painter in our state and has given me many lovely items over the years. I'll have to do a post on them some day.

MyJourneyBack said...

Hi Kelli,
My photos wouldn't upload today. So no Show and Tell. That makes me sad. I am off to a pastors retreat so can't keep working on it. I'll be back Saturday to look at everyones.
Have a Blessed Day.
