Show and Tell Friday...


Kelli over at 'There is No Place Like Home' hosts a show and tell each Friday. Today is my first participation.

My show and tell is pictures of the initial 'R' that I have around our home. 'R' begins our family last name. I am proud of my family and what we stand for so I enjoy finding items to decorate our nest with our last name initial.

"Proper names are poetry in the raw. Like all poetry they are untranslatable." ~W.H. Auden

"When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses." ~Joyce Brothers



I am quite fond of these little teacups and the linen napkins. I am not sure if you can see, but the napkin that is in the teacup has a little red embroidered ladybug on it! If you had not guessed from my blog, I just adore ladybugs! I found the teacup and the linen napkins at Anthropologie and fell in love with them!

I hope you enjoyed sharing my treasured letter! Go visit Kelli for more Friday Show and Tell!

I love initials also. In fact I posted all mine a while back. It is wonderful that you appreciate the family name. I think a trait that is too easily overlooked.
