"Show and Tell Friday"
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
My show and tell this week is this crystal bowl, which was a wedding gift from my Grandma. My Grandparents have always been very careful with their money, and so receiving this Mikasa bowl was a special surprise.
For years I thought the beautiful pattern etched on the bottom was of grapes and leaves, but after looking more closely, I'm thinking it is some kind of flower.
I just don't know what kind!
I don't get the bowl out very often, but when I do, I like to use it as a centerpiece on my kitchen table.
Today, I have used lemons and sprigs of tiny pink flowers.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
