Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home hosts “Show and Tell Friday” asking “Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there’s a story behind your special something, that’s even better! If you would like to join in, all you have to do is post your “Show and Tell” on your blog, copy the post link, come over here and add it to Mr. Linky. Guidelines are here.
My husband took a business trip to China last week and brought home several goodies.
This one was for my youngest, but I thought the packaging was neat:
This is a box of chocolates…
…that claimed to be “manly”..
….that were shaped like pandas.
We joked a lot about the “Manly Pandas.” They had pandas on a lot of things.
A couple more treats:
The left is like peanut brittle. I am not sure about the one on the right. I don’t think any of us has tried it yet.
I thought the packaging here was pretty:
And it contained this lovely necklace:
Real Chinese chopsticks!
A hand-dyed bag:
A beautiful fan:
I love the detailed cutwork and the pinkness and those flowers — cherry blossoms?
Thanks for looking at my new Chinese treasures! My husband made it back home safe and sound and tired, and we enjoyed looking at pictures, watching videos, and hearing stories.
