"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.
Thank you for the valentine wishes, I hope you all had a wonderful day. Today I'm going to share some gifts I received for my birthday.
Last year I showed everyone these doll dress bookmarks that my special email/letter writing friend, Kelly made for me. Well, she surprised me with some more lovely gifts!
A beautiful knitted potholder and two handmade dishcloths.
Heart themed for Valentine's Day! Kelly knows how much I love yellow and especially paired up with blue.
Here are some more pretty dishcloths she has made me in the past.
I folded them all up, tied the bundle with a ribbon, and set it in my kitchen window. Thank you for the beautiful gifts, Kelly!
Speaking of my kitchen window, I'd like you to meet Mr. Jay. He was a gift from my mom and she got him especially because of the lovely acorn. Some of you may remember how much I love acorns. :0)
My mom also surprised me three beautiful mini teapots for my collection.
I love the delicate flowers.
This one might be my favorite!
As you can see I received some wonderful gifts for my birthday. Thank you for letting me share them with you!
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.
-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!
1 - Publish your "Show and Tell" on your blog, including a link back to There is No Place Like Home. Go HERE for the "Show and Tell" picture code to copy and paste into your post.
