Sometimes Treasures come in different packages ;-)

 .This  week my treasure is really special and once you read this you will understand why . On Saturday morning we got a call from our son Chad wanting us to join them for bowling in Antigonish , apparently the girls wanted to bowl so off we went. We arrived at the  bowling alley about the same time they did  so got to enjoy seeing Nila and Elise bowling , it was the first time for Elise and it was priceless to watch her little antics to get that big ball down the lane .I forgot my camera :-( Nila did extremely well and had a spare a couple of times , we don't want to know how I did so I will spare you the details ;-0
Now for my treasure , when we arrived Elise came over all excited to tell me she had a present for me , she said it was in the car so my DIL went out to the car and brought it in and passed it to me. I have tried to recreate what this package looked like , since I had to pull it apart it doesn't look quite like it did when it was given to me but you will get the general idea.
 On the left is the package , it is paper towel with I am sure an entire roll of tape holding it together and it was kind of circular and inside was all this plastic wrap , however each piece of plastic wrap was balled up in a little ball and placed inside this little package so I carefully unrolled each and every piece of plastic wrap and inside one I found my treasure , my gift from Elise ,do you want to see it , sure you do .
It is so small it was a little difficult to get a decent picture but this is a piece of clear beach glass , quite the little treasure from the best little treasure of all my granddaughter Elise ,

 I love my grandchildren so much , they fill my life with joy and love and Elise sure managed to make me smile with her special little gift , so yes sometimes treasures do come in somewhat strange packages . To see even more wonderful treasures be sure to stop by and visit with Melody of The House on the Side of the Hill who is our wonderful hostess for this weekly event , won't you join us . 
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday , I know I will.
 hugs Sheila
