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.


Towel
Good morning! I have a couple of special things to share with you, today. Recently, I got an email from Debi asking if she could send me a copy of Life Beautiful magazine. She was sweet enough to send along several other gifts, including this beautiful guest towel. Thank you, Debi!

Cameos
I am also sharing two favorite pieces of jewelry.

Cameo
My mom always kept this cameo brooch on her dresser and I loved to look at it. I was very happy when she gave it to me a few years ago. Now I keep it on a little mirrored tray in my bathroom.

Ring
My other cameo is this ring that Phillip got for me when we lived in Sioux Falls, SD. I would love to add a Victorian era cameo to my small collection. Maybe someday! Thank you for looking at my show and tell and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate.

If you would like to join in, please leave your *permalink* below, along with your first name only (this makes the list easier to read). If your link has been removed from Mr. Linky, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting. Have fun!

Hi am I allowed to link it to my boys bedroom that I posted two days ago? Not to the whole blog just that post? Wendy

Mary said...

Kellie,

The towel and the cameo are both beautiful. What a lovely gesture. I have mine up and it is linked only to the S&T post and it is something I own. Sorry about bending the guidelines in previous posts.

Blessings for a great weekend.

Such a pretty towel and your cameo's are beautiful. They remind me of a necklace my Grandaddy gave. Maybe I'll dig it out and show it next time.

Never mind..Sorry to waste your time. While holding baby, cleaning up dinner and sending kiddies to the shower, I did it, hehe! Something new! Yeah! I just wanted to be part of show and tell! Thank you for your time!!!! Have a great Friday! Wendy.

My mother also kept a cameo brooch on her dresser. As a child this lovely lady fascinated me. Thanks for sharing - it was a lovely walk down memory lane!

I too like cameos. In fact, if I ever had another daughter, that would have been her name.
My post is up...and have a wonderful weekend.

Kelli, I love Cameos. Yours are very special. A gift from your mom and a gift from your DH. I have a weakness for lovely linens. The towel is beautiful.

Anne Fannie said...

Hello Kelli, I love your Cameo. I had one my brother gave me when I was young and it came up missing years ago. I also love that towel too. Very nice post.
Thank you again for hosting Show and Tell Friday and for all your time and effort you put forth.

nannykim said...

Those are all so beautiful. I do have a cameo type ring which is supposed to be from the 1500's--it was made into a ring in the 1900's--but not sure what it originally was.

I also love cameos!
I have blogged about mine some time ago.
I have a brooch and earrings that my brother brought me from Sicily (Rachel wore them on her wedding day)...and a ring that I was given by my parents for my HS graduation.

You have some treasures there.

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...

Good Morning Kelli,

I love cameo's..how precious yours are, they are wonderful heirlooms to be worn and passed on. They are perfectly displayed on your new towel. Perhaps sometime you could share where your Mother got her cameo, is the back signed?

Have a Fantastic Friday!
Hugs,
Kathi :)

PS,
I have tried and tried to get rid of that dumb smiley face after my name, I think it got there the first time I ever posted on Mr Linky on another blog,. I'm sorry.

Lynn said...

Barbara H. said...

I love cameos -- those are beautiful! And that tea towel is lovely.

Rhondamum said...

And to think that we all get to put a picture of your mom's cameo on our blogs when we post your "Show & Tell" picture. It is so beautiful and I am so happy to know the story behind it now. And the ring, that was obviously meant to be yours. At a quick glance, you would think they came as a set. Thanks for sharing and having us!

Rhonda...

Lora said...

I love your ring!! It is beautiful!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

I love your cameo! My mom had some, and they were one of my favorite things in her jewelery box. Thank you for sharing, AND hosting show & tell! I really look forward to it!

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Very nice pictures...and the memories that go along with them make them even nicer! I have quite a few things that would look like "nothing" to people who walk into my house but mean the world to me because they belonged to someone I loved. Enjoy your weekend!

MyJourneyBack said...

The towel was a beautiful gift! I love the cameos. I've always thought they were pretty, however they always seem silly on me.

Danielle said...

Oh I love your pretty blog! You are a fabulous photographer :) I came over by way of Weathertop Farm, and I must say that I'm glad that I did!

I love cameo's too, and I had a little cameo ring when I was little. I can't remember how old I was when I got it, but I think my Mom gave it to me. Seeing your ring brought back the memory of it. Hmmmm, I wonder if it's still in my jewelry box or not......

Autumn said...

Those are beautiful! I love cameos.
Maybe I'll do show and tell next week...Its been awhile since I've participated!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

The cameos are beautiful! I had planned to do a S&T, but got so involved with the convention, I didn't get it done. Guess what I was going to do? -- Cameos!! I have fallen into a collection of them. I'll do it is a few weeks. I enjoyed seeing yours and have always noticed the cameo in the S&T photo.

Deb said...

Kelli,
I'm so glad that you liked the guest towel. I used several old linens at my daughter's wedding, and even draped her portrait easel with the blanket that she came home from the hospital in 23 years ago. I'm glad that the towel found a happy home. Thanks for choosing it to share in your Show and Tell! I love your cameos too! I may get brave and enter something next week! Have a great weekend!

MyJourneyBack said...

Thanks for leaving Mr. Linky up! I finally wrote. Thanks for coming by and checking in to say hi. It was crazy here yesterday. The computer time I had I was working on downloading the baby photos. My daughter has been frustrated that they didn't have any photo's yet. So I made sure Thursday we went to develope and so yesterday I was busy all day. Plus I got to keep the baby for a couple of hours while she went to the consignment sale in Grapevine.
Have a great weekend.
Smiles,
Shery
