Show and Tell Friday - Yard Decorations



Today is Show and Tell Friday. I have missed the past 4 weeks because I have been on vacation. It's good to be back and Kelli at There's No Place Like Home is such a great hostess!



The weather has been warm here this past week. In the 80's. Today we are expecting rain but I won't hold my breath.
These are some yard decorations I bought in Guatemala on our cruise. I just love them because they will remind me of our tour of the Mayan ruins. They look great on my fence! They are large and very heavy. I also sprayed them with sealer so that they can last longer!
For more of Show and Tell Friday, please go visit Kelli's House at There's No Place Like Home!

These are very unique! I saw the Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico many moons ago.

I too love to bring back items from my holidays that are decorative items for the home or garden. When I see them it reminds me of our holiday.

What a great reminder of and wonderful trip... I always put sealers on too, good to know that I am not the only one, sometimes Hubby looks at me funny when I pull out my can of sealer...like okay here she goes again...

Have a wonderful day!

What fun to have a reminder of your vacation in your garden! And a great idea to spray them with sealer so they stay looking beautiful for a long, long time! :-)

Lucky you, I have always wanted to see the Mayan ruins since reading some books as a kid. Amazing trip it sounds like.

The warmth sounds great! I am sitting by the fire now with it in the 30's and snow forecast for tomorrow.

Those are wonderful keepsakes from your trip.

Looks like you had a wonderful time on your cruise. When we went to Mexico last fall we had the same problem with pan handlers. Everyone wanted money from us. Even if you took a picture of them they would say that's gonna cost you $5.00. It got really annoying. I would love to do the Panama Canal someday. Mimi

Those look really great on your fence. Fun to have some kind of reminder of your wonderful trip!

jeanne said...

Hello Annie, your masks look great as yard art. I too like the Mayan ruins. I saw the ones in Mexico. I have never been to Guatemala. Maybe one day.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs...Jeanne

Lisa said...

How nice you got to go on a cruise! Happy Show & Tell Friday!

Carol said...

It's so nice to leave....but wonderful to get back home, isn't it? Very nice souvenirs. Memories...

It's much better to put your souvenirs where you will see them instead of hiding them away in a dusty drawer or closet!
