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.


Bookshelves
Hello! My friend Sandra, at Ravenhill Cottage recently shared pictures of her bookshelves and books, so I thought I would join in. The ones I'm sharing today don't include the wall of shelves in Phillip's office!

Bookshelves
We have four shelves in our schoolroom for history, geography, science and novels.

Dolls
I also keep our collection of Wizard of Oz dolls here. We got them at McDonalds several years ago.

Bookshelves
This bookshelf is in our hallway. We have more novels, devotionals, art, poetry and children's story books here.

Bookshelves
And finally, a shelf in our bedroom for magazines and non-fiction.

Dolls
There is also a spot for my Matryoshka dolls, found at a yardsale. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. Have a wonderful weekend!

Remember, that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. 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 exact show and tell blog post link, 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, or e-mail me with any questions.

Thank you so much for being our host! I know it takes something extra to set this up every week and I really appreciate it. Especially now that I want everyone to help me stay on track with my "Lose the Piles" project.

I know you're even busier with school starting, so thanks for hosting. This has been fun for me!

We love books at our house, and I've thought about showing our bookshelves. We also have a lot of them. I think one of these days I will Show and Tell them like you did.

I love your Wizard of Oz doll collection! I would love to have that. I've been wanting to begin a collection for quite some time now.

Happy Friday! Love your blog!

We have lots of books at our house too, though not as organized. I love your Wizard of Oz dolls...so cute! Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful weekend also.

The little Wizard of Oz dolls are so cute, I have never seen them. I see there is a lot to read in your house too, lol !
I am back with some new things to show !

Susan said...

With having a pastor-husband and homeschooling, it's a given that we have lots of books, too! I enjoyed seeing yours. Thanks for hosting!

Lora said...

You can never have too many bookcases, right?!
My daughter has those same little MA dolls from McD's, too, they're so cute.

marie said...

Kelli ~ aren't books the most wonderful thing! I love seeing bookcases full of them! I like how you include other cute things on the shelfs too.

I've never joined in on any Mr Linky things before...but decided to today. Thanks for hosting Show & Tell Friday. It was fun to do my own little Show & Tell!

Gracie said...

I can understand you so well, I have my home full of books (the ones I have yet to read in my closet!)and I keep buying new ones all the time.

Hootin' Anni said...

I know ONE lovely lady who would LOVE those Wizard of Oz dolls!!!!! My daughter!!! LOL

Great share today Kelli...I so admire those who, like me, love books.

My show n tell is about the symbol of Native Americans today...the kokopelli.

Have a great weekend.

Doing a post on bookshelves and what is on them is a great idea! Mine aren't as organized as your are, though. Great post.

Wow Kelli! You must be avid readers. We are too. I love you Matroyshka dolls.

Thanks again for hosting!

LadySnow said...

Oh how I wish we had more bookshelves. Yours look great! And really cute with the dolls too. :-)

Kelli, I wanted to collect those dolls but didn't know about it until too late. I have the one on the end. I think she is the witch the house fell on.
I spy something that looks like a sewing machine figurine on the lower shelf of the one in your bedroom. Have you shared that with us?
Looks like the family has lots of reading material. I used to keep all the books we bought but now I give most of them away. I only keep the ones I know I'll read again. I have many children's books which I think are special. I'll show those sometime.
Thanks for hosting,
Mama Bear

Arlene Grimm said...

Always love seeing your sweet and cozy home Kelli!!

Susan said...

Oh, I had a set of the Matryoshka dolls that I purchased at the Katherine the Great Exhibit in 1991. Somewhere along the way I got rid of them :o( This brought back that pleasant memory of seeing that Exhibit with our Sister-in-law in Memphis!!!

Hi Kelli,
I haven't done S & T for a long long time and was just thinking about you and the meme and decided to drop in to see what's happenin'.
We have lots of books and bookcases too. Of course I like the little dolls you have displayed.
Have a wonderful day and weekend.

Jeannie said...

I posted mine, I want to tell everyone that has posted theres that user BlogSpot, that even though on some there was no option for folks that dont use Blog Spot or open ID that you have some great show and tells....

Mrs.T said...

What a great idea to show your bookshelves! Most of ours were made by Mr. T and some have some special stenciled designs on them. However, I'm afraid my bookshelves are not neat enough to display! I'll think about it, though...

Thanks for sharing and again, for hosting, too. This is so much fun for all who take part. Have a great weekend!

God bless,
Mrs.T

Deb said...

Kelli, thanks for sharing. We love books at our house too! With five kids and myself, we have something on the scale of a small town library going on! My oldest daughter LOVES the Wizard of Oz and has this same collection..I ate happy meals for weeks to complete the collection for her! Only After that did I learn that you can purchase the toys seperately! Live and Learn:) Have a great weekend!
