"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 am still on vacation, so have fun with Show and Tell!!

Show and Tell Guidelines

What is Show and Tell Friday?
Show and Tell involves showing something to an audience, and then telling them about it. Your show and tell must be something that you own, and is in your home or garden.

What items work well for Show and Tell Friday?
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
-Childhood keepsakes
-Family heirlooms
-A collection you may have
-A piece of jewelry
-A special gift
-A favorite treasure
-Gardening pictures

What doesn't work well for Show and Tell Friday?
-Posts with no photos have no "Show." Please don't use them.
-Photos of events (trips, vacations, celebrations, etc.)
-Photos of things you are selling or planning to sell.
-Photos found on the internet, graphics or screenshots. Please use photos you take yourself.

There is no place like home is the original home of Show and Tell Friday. Please do not host your own.

Please do not feel that you have to participate every Friday.

How can I participate?
Once you've got your photo(s) and your story, it's easy as 1-2-3!

1 - Publish your "Show and Tell" on your blog, including a link back to There is No place like Home. If you don’t know the link code, email me and I will send it to you.

2 - Copy the link (or "permalink") from your post.

3 - Add it to Mr. Linky, along with your first name. I usually put Mr. Linky up on Friday at 12:00am Eastern time.

That's it! After that, you can start visiting all the other Show and Tell participants!

Please type only your first name into Mr. Linky (not your blog name or what you are showing). This will make the list easier to read. Thank you!

So....what's up with not taking us with you on your vacation?!! I'm so jealous!! I bet you're at some posh resort, soaking up the ambiance and enjoying not having us ol' biddies with you, right? [just kidding]

Enjoy the time! I'm sure you are.

And as all the others above me on the comments....your whole idea of show n tell is just way too much fun. I love it.

Hi Kelli,
It's been a long time and I have some computer troubles so I have been kinda scarce but I wanted to come by and wish you a blessed weekend!
Hope that you are enjoying your vacation!

Hi Kelli,
Hope you're having a wonderful vacation. My post this Friday was an outing, so I didn't think it would qualify for show n tell.
I'll join in again next week..

Mary said...

This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for hosting this fun event.
