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.
I wanted to show some of my Christmas presents my dear family showered me with this year.
My husband got me two new Boyd’s Bears:
This one says around the bottom, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, Mother was right after all.”
Some new books:
My blog friend Anita in Germany often mentions these Tilda books. I just love her style.
This pretty cameo:
My future daughter-in-law sent me this beautiful tablecloth:
I love the lace and pretty stitching, especially the hearts in the corners.
It’s small, about the size of one you’d put on a round end table. It’s almost too pretty to use. But then again, I really hate it when I give something to someone and they stick it in a closet because they don’t want to mess it up. I want them to use it. So I will look for a place to display this.
Hope you are having a good first week of 2009!
