Show and Tell Friday (10/19)

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!

A couple of weeks ago I showed a sword that my hubby made. I said I would eventually show the one he made for himself (So he could defend himself.) Well, I finally have pictures of it. So...here they are. He can easily defend himself from 2 children at once. Oh yes...if you liked the child's sword you can sign up for a chance to win one here.

**If you want to be entered in the raffle please comment on specific post for the raffle so I can keep them all straight. Thanks**
