"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.
Hello everyone! Did you know that today is George Washington's birthday? I thought I would show you my stamp collection, since I have many George Washington stamps. :0)
I started collecting stamps when I was around 10 years old. I had a few friends who also collected them and we would trade our favorites back and forth. As you can see, I have lots of stamp books on my shelf. The red Traveler Stamp Album was the one that started it all.
I dug these boxes out of my closet this afternoon. They are filled with even more stamps!
Who knows when I will have time to go through these, but I still enjoy having them.
I do have some of them organized. This box is full of envelopes and each envelope represents a country. Guess what they are filled with? ;0)
This is an old stamp book that I got on ebay a few years ago.
It belonged to an Elizabeth H. Andrews from Cambridge, Mass.
These stamps are from 1847.
Speaking of George Washington, we have a tradition of baking a cherry pie for his birthday each year.
You can find the recipe in the post down below! Thank you for looking at 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.
-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.
