Show and Tell Friday

My Grandmother gave me this ornament when I was a little girl. It has always been my favorite and remains so to this day. It hangs in a place of honor on my Christmas tree every year. There is a hitch... my DH thinks it is the ugliest thing he has ever seen and will move it to a place on the tree where no one can see it. We have this revolving game... I hang it, he moves it, I find it and move it back again. Good times! LOL! For more Show and Tells go to http://kellishouse.blogspot.com

It is cute. At least your husband enjoy it enough to move it around. One of those make-memory moments.

Cindy, you sound like my kind of person. I am new to your site today. I have my First show and tell at my site, today, and was visiting all the others on the list. http://morthanenough.blogspot.com
I have an ornament, too, that EVERYONE tries to either hide, or lose, every year. I can sympathize. but I like yours. Mine is not so pretty!:(

Cute story Cyndi. I think it's the cutest I've ever seen. It deserves to be seen.

Happy Show N Tell day.

Things that our grandmothers give us have a special meaning to us and are priceless because they have so much sentimental value. I have several things that my grandmother gave to me. This week my Show and Tell is a square plate that she left to me.

Thanks for sharing this adorable keepsake.

Blessings,
mary
