Show and Tell Friday (4/11)

Show and Tell

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!

Oh my, I haven't participated in Show and Tell for too long. Today I thought I would show a find. Beloved took yesterday afternoon off to be with us, so we thought it would be good to try a used furniture store in another town and then we looked at the Flea Market in town. Well...no dressers were found for Big T but we did find something else. We found this awesome wooden pirate ship for only $15. Most of the pieces seem to be there. We just need to get it together. Here you can see how tall it is next to Big T and Little E.

Big T is so excited! I did some searching on the internet when we got home and found it at number of places. One place had it on clearance for over $50 and the kicker was...I found it (first) at the Pottery B@rn website for $149!!!! I couldn't believe it. I am so happy with our find. :D

I LOVE a bargain and a flea market find. Very cool. Is it for the boys to play with or is it decorative? One way or the other, it is definitely neat!
