"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.
Today I'm going to show you our collection of mini tea sets. This little bit of wall space is in my dining room.
I found the actual shelf at a yard sale many years ago.
This beautiful heart that Anita made for me hangs on one of the hooks.
On the very top shelf I keep two of these teapot candle holders.
The bottom two tea sets were gifts to the girls from Phillip. The white set is missing quite a few pieces because the girls actually used them for tea time when they were little. Let's just say these dishes are well loved. :0)
I found this last tea set at a yard sale a few years ago. The young girl that was selling it said her Grandmother brought it back from a trip she had made to Japan. I thought it was sad she was getting rid of it, but the girls and I have enjoyed it!
Thank you for looking my 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:
-A collection you may have
-A piece of jewelry
-A special gift
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.
-Old photos of just people instead of things.
There is no place like home is the original home of Show and Tell Friday. Please do not host your own.
How can I participate?
Once you've got your photo(s) and your story, it's easy as 1-2-3!
