Friday Show and Tell

If you would like to show us some of your wonderful things or not so "wonderful" things around your home...come and play along. Just go to the above address and add your name to Kelli's blog!! She is our host!!

Today I was trying to think what i would show everyone for SHOW AND TELL!! But i think I will start with some gorgeous plates and bowls that I found while getting ready for our garage sale last weekend...

This is a hand painted bowl that i have always loved!! I wish that i knew where all of these came from in the first place but they have all been handed down through our family and now I have the responsibiliy of them

I know this hard to see but it is signed...I have another one that is also signed!!
Isn't this a beauty!! I have always loved it because of the purple grapes. I have so many like these!! Just amazing!! This one has nothing at all wrong with it either..Which is a blessing. I have moved all of this stuff all of our 45 years of marriage but it has held up well don't ya think?

This is my original old skate key!! We used to take our skates to school in the Springtime and in the Fall and skate all of the time that we had outside. i loved to skate...still do but would probably break my back or something STUPID like that now...I have kept this skate key...well..Just because.
We are off today in our motor home up to see the GREAT GEORGIA Northern parts!! I have always wanted to go. We will be staying in Gainesville and hopefully will have cooler weather and just a time of relaxing!!

Take care and have a relaxing FRIDAY!!

Thought for the day: "Flattery is all right if you don't inhale!!" smile!!

I love ALL of your plates. What precious treasures they are being handed down in your family.

Now that skate key holds many memories. I would love to hear the stories it would tell if it could only talk.

Sorry I was so long answering your email. I was away for a few days and now you are away. Safe journey and enjoy.

Good morning Sandy, it is 3:43am and I am still awake..we will be leaving around 8:00am to go to Atlanta...

I loved to roller skate when I was growing up , but did not save my key..I would skate in the streets or inside of a roller rink..those were fun days..

Have a safe and fun trip..

I love those plates, Sandy, they are beautiful and have certainly held up well over the years.

I, too, used to skate a lot when I was young! We seem to have a lot in common, you and I. The other day you asked what month my birthday is...I'm an Aquarian, born in January. Not too far away from your birthday, is it?

Have a wonderful trip and keep safe.

Keeping your skate key just because is a good reason, suits me ok. I wish i had kept my shoe skates, have often wondered where they went. I learned to skate when i was so young and have always loved to, but I am sure I would break something if I tried now at the age of 84, so will leave it to the younger ones today. Love your blogs Sandy and have a good trip to Northern GA., I am jealous.
Love & Hugs mother & dad

Those plates are beautiful! And the skate cool is that!
Gainesville huh! You are only a hop, skip and a jump from me. I am only about 45 minutes from there.
Have fun.
