Today I feel like showing off some of my favorite items. I've linked up with Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

This is a pair of finials that we purchased in Beirut, Lebanon. The church across the street from our flat was remodelling, it was only 100 years old. These were on the corners of the entry gate. Each one weighs about 100 lbs. We paid 5000 Lebanese Lira for them (about $2.50). I have them in my family room.

Thanks for looking at my show and tell.

World Traveler Table

I've linked up with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

I decided to create a World Traveler table this week for Tablescape Thursday. We lived overseas for two and a half years and Husband still travels around the world on his job. We picked up many things over the years and I wanted to showcase a few.

The brown tablecloth is from Damascus, Syria. The Anubis statues were purchased in Egypt.

The globe, on the other hand, we found at an Estate Sale last November. The plates are from a garage sale as well. We bought them for our son for his first apartment. I wanted to showcase them even though they are basic.

The silverware was a hand-me-down from my Mother-in-law. All the silver pieces were purchased at garage sales, for no more than $5 or $10 each.

I hope you enjoyed the table. I may just have to invite a few people over for a meal and good conversation.
