Tuesday Treasures


Do you have something special this week which is a treasure to you? If so, please link it below so we can share in each other's wonderful things. Be it something you have made, a photograph of something special or things you have collected like me.

Look at the treasures I picked up last week at a charity shop.


A book of music, a hard backed rounded bag which opens a bit like a shell and .....


a fabric frame which was only £1.99. A bargain eh?


This is how I have altered it. A vintage bird as the central image, a big shabby bow and lots of little embellishments. I would like to add this to Ali's blog Vintage Page Designs where she has a challenge theme of Birds.


A lace butterfly from the Funkie Junkie's Boutique, old buttons, another of my frozen Charlotte dolls.

The bluebird and flower is off a piece of jewellery, there is also some trim and charms.

I am looking forward to seeing your special treasures.
