Show and Tell Friday

Show and Tell
Want to see everyone's show and tell? Head over to Kelli's blog, There is no place like home and enjoy the fun.
Does anybody else feel like the week runs by too fast? I can't believe it's Friday already.
This decorative jar was a gift from a dear friend of mine. It’s basically an oversized knick-knack, and I keep it on top of my dresser. I love the color and design. I
have a few other oriental type decorations that I keep there with this. We used this and other blue and white oriental-type decorations for one of our daughter’s receptions.
Just as an aside, the top disappeared after that reception. I figured it just got lost or thrown out accidentally as we cleaned up and packed up at the end of the reception. Months later, I saw that another daughter was using it as a butter dish! So I snagged it back.

What a beautiful jar! I love the colours. It's amazing where things turn up sometimes, isn't it? It's a perfect treasure to show off for 'show and tell'. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely jar. I think they call them Ginger Jars. So glad you found the top!!!! I'd have snagged it back, too.

It wasn't even a good butter dish. It wasn't flat on the bottom/top so it would wobble around. But it was so pretty!
