As I was typing my title, I was reminded that when I was little I used to have a "Show n Tell". You would put a film strip in the slot and put the record on and it would read a story and show picture on the screen. I loved that toy! I wonder what happened to it??? I found this pic on ebay.
Anyway, back to what I really brought for show and tell! I would like for you to meet three very good friends of mine. The first little lady in the pink victorian attire is "Phyllis Victoria". My darling husband bought her for me when we were first married. The lady we bought her from said maybe you can name her Phyllis, that was her name. I said of course, Phyllis was my mothers name too! She has been in our family for about 25 years now.
The second friend, in the red velvet, is very special to me. Her name is "Dorothy Stewart". Dorothy was given to my grandmother when she was in the second grade by her teacher whose name was Dorothy Stewart. Grandma kept her for decades and I never even knew she existed until my 16th Christmas and Dorothy Stewart was given to me for safe keeping.
The last little lady in cream, is "Alice Lee Shenk" I bought her at a auction sale about 20 years ago. At the same sale, I bought a silver calling card case and it had a card still in it that said "Miss Alice Lee Shenk". I also bought some silver sewing implements and the were engraved with ALS on them. So I thought it only fitting that she be name after her original owner.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friends! I hope everyone has a joyful weekend!
