Tuesdays Treasures

As you may realize by now I love trees and flowers so I just had to buy this flower press when I seen it at a yard sale in Switzerland ,it is made of wood and has such a sweet design on the front and I am sure I did not pay much for it so home it came with me in my suitcase .
I do have a few leaves inside but so far no flowers ,want to see what a pressed leaf looks like , ok .
They look like I just picked them don't they but these were placed in there some time ago. 
 One more leaf that I want to show you as it is a perfect shape , have no idea what type of leaf it is but it was so pretty I had to pick it and save it .
This was a pretty shade of deep red but it is more brownish now but I still love that shape . So this lovely flower press is my treasure for this week and to see more lovely treasures be sure to visit with Melody of The House on the side of the Hill.     
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon. Hugs Sheila

  1. Very neat! I am wondering if you can buy one of those in the states? This would be great when scrapbooking.
