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.

Happy Friday! For show and tell, I am sharing some summer touches that I have added to my kitchen. One of my favorite color combinations is blue and white, so I love my new tea towels.


I also decorated my kitchen piesafe with special red things, including the cherry dishes that I found last year.


An old fashioned water dipper.

Another tea towel.

Thank you for looking at my show and tell! Next, I will have to get out my seashells. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Wow! Your pictures make me catch my breath. Ilooooove red-and-white in the kitchen. And I love the quaint old-fashioned look of the lacy shelf edging. Can you tell me who makes the gingham and cherry dishes or is it a secret?

I just skipped forward to summertime. I didn't even put out much spring stuff after Easter and went ahead and decorated with my shells! I am a little lazy this year.
