"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 have a sweet friend named Gwen and we have exchanged handwritten letters for several years now. Last month we were in a tea towel/gift swap together and I would like to share the things that she send me.
Gwen made this darling gingerbread boy tea towel for me. He made himself right at home on my kitchen towel rack!
Isn't he cute with his rick-rack and button eyes?
She also sent me some beautiful greenery with a gingerbread boy sitting right in the middle. I set it up on my kitchen windowsill.
A little dish with two homemade knitted dishcloths.
Gwen recently learned how to make paper, so she gave me this very pretty card. She also attached a gingerbread cookie recipe, which I can't wait to try.
The gingerbread candle makes my kitchen smell just like Christmas!
As you can see Gwen is very creative and talented, and spoiled me with wonderful gifts. Thank you, Gwen!

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.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:
-A collection you may have
-A piece of jewelry
-A special gift

-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.
-Old photos of just people instead of things.
