Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!



It's Show and Tell Friday time again! Last week we had a record number of participants...over 300!! Whoohoo!  Thank you all so much for joining in! 

Can you believe I'm sharing something that is not blue, pink or white today?


This is a new (to me) plate that a coworker gave me!  You may remember she gave me some gorgeous pink dishes a last month! 


This beautiful plate was made in Germany.  I love the green and yellow color combination! So fresh!

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

Love the green of the plate against the yellow of the lemon topiary. So bright and fresh and spring-like. My MIL gave me some german plates a month ago. I could swear one of them had that same RC sanssouci mark. I'll have to dig it out and look. Thanks for sharing and for hosting this party.

NanaDiana said...

I hope your co-worker quits her job, comes to work with me and I become her new best friend...just sayin... WOW- Love that plate and I love anything with lemons...so fresh and clean looking! Lovely post! Hugs- Diana

I love this plate, Cindy! I'm always looking at old plates when I go to the flea market. I would have picked this up in a hurry!

That plate is beautiful Cindy, I love it! What a generous kind person you're co-worker is:) I have your pumpkin/spice cake muffins in the oven right now, they smell so good and I can't wait to taste them! I must have a very small muffin tin because I ended up with more like 18. Thank you for sharing the recipe and for hosting your party every week:)

Cindy, sometimes we discovered that other colors work well together, but prefer white, blue and pink.Isn´t it true?
