Show and Tell Friday



Here is my favorite Easter wreath! It is a bit old and worn, but I have great memories attached to it. Years ago an aunt who lives far away came to our area. It had been years since we had seen her. We enjoyed a quick visit with her and toured a state park in our area. At the gift shop we browsed and saw this Easter wreath. I was a newly married woman and could not afford things like this, but I really liked it. My aunt bought one for her and one for her daughter. The next day when she left, she gave me one of them as a gift. It was a beautiful surprise and very thoughtful deed that I have never forgotten.

There is lots of show and tells over at Kelli's Place today. Take a look!
