Tuesdays Treasures

Another treasure that I have no idea how I came by
all I know is I have had for such a long time .
If you are thinking , Clare's place must have a lot of junk , you'd be right !
This ceramic house must have been used as a cover for maybe butter at one stage .
Now it sits in my cabinet with all my other junk treasures .
I have never been interested in travelling overseas
 and these days a night out is a rarity .
I am a real homebody and am very happy
to be at home with my crazy little family .
My house is not fancy in any way but it is full of love .
This little piece represents what I love most , my home .

Come and play .

It is gorgeous Clare.
I am with you. Things don't have to be fancy to be a treasure they have to have love in them.

Hi Clare,

What a little treasure. I'm with you in that the mimimalist look is definitely not for me. It's the little treasures that make it a home.

Hello Clare,
I saw on a Dutch blog the Tuesday treasures and I liked it. So know I join the club.

Allie said...

Yay, I remembered!!! Thanks to Peg, that is - I would not have remembered without her!

My grandmother had 2 of the house biscuit barrels, they were chipped. When she downsized her house she threw them out. Without telling anyone. Every time I go to an antique store I look at them. They are either not there or really over priced. You are so lucky. I look at that and think of my childhood and wish wish wish I had one! :)

Such a sweet little house! And you were right to cross out junk and write treasures. I have not seen one piece of 'junk' in your Tuesday's Treasures!
I haven't really found anything to take part with yet...we have moved more than a dozen times since we were married 11 years ago and this means that with every move there is usually a big clean out to minimize the amount we have to move. It is kind of sad actually. I'm hoping that when we finally own a house of our own I can start collecting lots of treasures too.

Lovely sentiments Clare. Sorry I didn't get to participate in Tuesday's Treasures this week - just been one of those 'icky' weeks.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

My house is full of junk....uh, treasures, too. I just adore certain things and enjoy having them around. I spose one day I'll have to decide which ones NEED to go and which ones I simply acn't bare to part with!
Love your little cabin top, so sweet, and such a good reminder to treasure not our possessions in the ouse, but the home we have made it into.
Love!!
