Show and Tell Friday


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" 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!

I love doing this! Today I am showing off the first strawberry from my garden. Granted when I purchased the plant it had one berry on it already. Hubby and I shared it....it was sooooo good! ;) And the other picture is of a punch bowl set I purchased at the yard sales (for 4 dollars....it came with 12 cups) last weekend for Sweet E's Hope Chest. Her hope chest is pretty full already. Now I am off to look at other people's show and tells.

Yum! I love strawberries. The punch bowl set is beautiful. I'm glad you and your daughter have started her a hope chest. I never hear of young girls having these anymore.

BTW, I am now the proud owner of the Edwardian apron pattern! Off today to get the fabric!

Oh, that looks so good. I am off to the grocery store in a few minutes to buy some of my own. Maybe I'll make strawberry shortcake for dessert tonight.

Thanks for stopping by my show and tell today. Don't you love show and tell?

By the way, there is a wonderful book called "The Big Hungry Bear" that we used to read over and over again to our kids when they were young. It is the cutest picture book. It is about a strawberry, a mouse, and a Big Hungry Bear. Absolutely adorable. I think it is written by Don and Audrey Woods if I am not mistaken. Worth a trip to the library, or Barnes and Noble :) Enjoy!

You just reminded me that I could store some goodies for my daughter in hubby's mother's hope chest. Where has my brain been, my daughters 21?! Thanks for sharing your goodies.

You are too nice to share the first strawberry. My daughter always used to get ours (when we had them). She didn't even wait to wash them!

That strawberry looks delish! Did you eat it yet? The Punch set for $4.00 is quite a steal! It looks so heavy and well made! Have a blessed weekend.
