Show and Tell Friday for October 10
Today's show and tell could be considered short and sweet. I have just a few items to show, and they could all be put in the "sweet" category. Two of these items are vintage, and the other is quite new.
I will show the new item first. It is just for fun; I will probably never use the contents, but it's so cute. It's a tiny can of sweetened condensed milk. Our daughter and son-in-law have spent several months in Antigua at two different times, and they brought us this adorable souvenir pantry item. The can is two inches high and about 1.5 inches across. The other side of the label is in English and reads "DUTCH LADY Sweetened Condensed Milk". It is a product of Holland. This sugar bowl was a thrift-shop find which my daughter Joanna gave me as a gift one time. She remembered that in our family summer cottage there had been a couple of mugs similar to this, labeled "Coffee" of course, instead of "Sugar". I love this sugar bowl because of the treasured memories it brings back, and also because of Joanna's thoughtfulness in giving it to me. And lastly, this is a vintage cinnamon-sugar bear. It is made to be converted into a little coin bank if one wishes to do so. The label says "Tops for Toast" which is sort of fun. And the lid reads "Mr. Bear's a bank, too!". My parents recently found two of these in one of their cupboards. So that is my simple show & tell for today.

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
