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.
Last week we went to the Texas State Fair for the first time. I've always wanted to go, so when our pastor's wife offered us free tickets, I gladly took them!
One of the highlights was riding the huge ferris wheel. I closed my eyes going up the first time around, but felt more brave the second time. :0)
Along with the games, rides and food, there were craft and gift booths. Phillip got me two new crystals for my kitchen window.
He also got me a stick of rock candy. A few years before we were married, he gave me a similar stick from the Del Mar fair in San Diego, CA. It sat on my dresser for many years, but eventually crumbled away.
Now I have a brand new stick to remind me of those special times! Thank you for looking at my fair treasures!
