Friday Show and Tell




In this place I live, we have a lot of historic sites so, last saturday, there they came from UK a bunch of mayors to visit.
My husband was invited for the occasion and, in the end,they gave to some people a beautiful golden box as a souvenir.

When my husband opened his, look what he found.


I was very pleased. Isn't that beautiful.?

No, the soap was not included. As it is one of my husnad favorite soaps, each time we go to England I buy several.



For todays Show and Tell Friday at There's No Place Like Home.

Very pretty! I found some Buckingham Palace cups at the Goodwill a few months ago, still in their original boxes ... now I'm wondering where I put them ...
