Tuesdays Treasures

My treasure this week is very special
and I don't even know why !
It seems I have had this basket forever as I can
 remember playing with it when I was very little .
It shows doesn't it ,  see all the repairs that have
 been done to it over the years .
I have no idea where it originally came from but
I am assuming one of my grandparents .

My treasure is a bit like me cracked but still cheerful !

PS Thanks so much for all your kind support !
A special hello to Chris (no blog ) from New Zealand
I hope you are feeling ok today and thankyou for your thoughts .

Come on show us your treasures cracks and all !

Hey, I'm first and I usually forget! Clare glad you're cracked and cheerful and not cracked and cranky :).Love your basket,memories don't have to be pretty because they are useful. They remind us of important things in our life, even if it was just playing and having fun.

I can see why you love your little basket. It is really sweet and I know it would have appealed to me as a little girl.

I'm in love. This basket is gorgeous even with all those cracks to remind you of the special place it holds in your life.

Thanks for sharing

Treasures with history don't have to be pristine and perfect Clare, it's the memories attached that gives us the greatest joy.

Hi Clare, Tuesday Treasures is one of my very favourite things in Blogworld. I love seeing what you and others have chosen to share. Hope you like my lovely teddy - I adore him. He usually lives on my dressing table where I can see him as I fall asleep

Hello Clare,

Isn't it funny how we hang onto special items. I was at our eldest daughters recently and I noticed in a pot plant a little pink/white Holly Hobby type ceramic doll that she had when she was little. She is not someone to hang onto things so was especially pleased to spy it there. Hope you have a great day.
