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!

Well, I wanted to show this really cool thing I picked up for my son at the yard sales a couple of weeks ago. This is a pretty old tool set. All of it is made of wood and metal...no plastic parts here! It even has the original manual with it. Hubby and I thought this would be so much fun for Big T, but no worries...he only gets it out when Hubby can devote his full attention to him. [You do see the metal saw...right? =) ] Now I am off to see what everyone else has today!

What a special treasure for a budding young carpenter. I bet he will learn a lot with that. You'll get some nice things made with love.
