Tuesdays Treasures

My treasure for this week is my lovely crystal necklace .
It originally came from someone in my mums family
and somehow I ended up with it .
I do love things that sparkle .
I wore it on my wedding day with the blue dress that I made but
I won't count my dress as a treasure as I changed my mind
ten minutes after I finished it and didn't really like it
but it was a little too late .
The day before your wedding is not really a good time to start making a new dress .

The handsome man behind me is my oldest brother Patrick ,
I'd like to count him as a treasure too as he is just the nicest man and I think he's wonderful .

Please don't bother looking for this frisky young girl .
Her body has been taken over by some crazy grey haired woman !

Your crystal necklace is really lovely as is the beautiful bride. I'm sure she still has some "frisky" in there when she needs it. I'm off to seek out a treasure to show now. Thanks for doing this each Tuesday. I love it.

What a lovely treasure. It looks lovely with your wedding dress. Something old, something new and something blue. What was borrowed?

The necklace is so pretty and sparkley and goes so well with your dress. I do admire you for making it yourself - well done, it's so pretty.......
Funny, the same thing happened to the shy little thing that wore my dress!!! What a strange co-incidence!!
Thanks again for hosting Treasure Tuesday........... Hugz

Oh Clare, how lovely you look! What a beautiful bride you were! I bet you look and still act the same, just with a little silver in your hair. A gorgeous necklace, it is just wonderful! I have the same rose pattern on a doily too, under the necklace!
Love your boquet! (I did a brides treasure today as well!)

Beautiful necklace - you wear it well!
We really need to do something about all these seniors that are taking over our minds and bodies. It seems to be epidemic.

Crystal necklaces have a certain beauty about them, no wonder you choose to wear them with your stunning blue dress.
