Almost Tuesday Treasure

I'm early again but I want to share two little treasures today , well three really and I know I won't have time in the morning so here goes . First off this past weekend we had visitors , not just any visitors but really..... special visitors , our son Chad , his wife Shauna and their two daughters Nila and Elise and then today on their way back home , they had been visiting the city for a couple of days they arrived just before supper and we had a little more time with the girls . How special is that but what about the treasure , well yes of course they are the treasure but they presented me with a treasure straight from their dear little hearts and it just happens to be something I truly love ,Daisies ! They of course wanted me to place them in a container for display so since they had broken them off rather small I had just this perfect little crystal container to place them in and I think they look just beautiful . They had such fun out in our yard finding the daisies and making sure they ran over to give them to me , that I think is the best treasure a person could wish for .
 The other small treasures I would like to share with you today are these sweet little dolls, very old , the larger of the two we found in an old trunk in a house we bought many years ago and it is in remarkable condition , the second was also found in a wooden box that was given to us from relatives and it mostly contained old pictures and letters but in one corner wrapped in a piece of fine paper was this doll minus the arms , they must have broken but they didn't want to discard the doll and I am so happy they didn't it really is precious .


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday I know I will as I will be doing something that I truly treasure , quilting. To see more treasures visit with Melody at the House on the side of the hill
hugs Sheila
