"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.
The resale store was calling my name yesterday and I'm glad I listened. ;0) Here are a few things that I found...
A new spring wreath for my front door. Cost: $3.09.
The green leaves and pink berries are perfect for spring.
I added the bow when we got home.
Four blue toile napkins. Cost: $2.09
A romantic scene.
I also found this unopened box of 4 placemats and 4 napkins.
They were $8.00, which I more than I usually pay for something at the resale store, but it is Irish linen and I plan on embroidering little shamrocks in the corners.
I'm not sure how to care for the fabric though. Can I wash them in the machine? Cold or hot water? Can I iron them?
And lastly, I spotted a box with this tiny lettuce bunny plate. I opened it up and found...
a mini tea set! Cost: $1.50.
We'll have to invite the bunny fairies over for tea!
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. Also, do not put an additional Show and Tell Mr. Linky in your post.
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.
2 - Copy the link (or "permalink") from your post.
3 - Add it to Mr. Linky, along with your first name only. (This will make the list easier to read.) I usually put Mr. Linky up on Friday at 12:00am Eastern time.
*If your name has been removed from Mr. Linky, please read over the guidelines before re-posting.
