Treasures of the heart




I know I have been a bit absent lately.  Life gets in the way sometimes - you know what I mean?
I have been working on a few projects I can't reveal just yet.  So . . . . I thought I would share some of my favorite treasures.

Anything in my sewing basket is treasure for me - especially when it includes vintage trims!
I noticed some of my daughter's toys laying next to the sewing basket the other day.

I was about to request that she put those things away and it hit me . . . those are her "treasures".


two finger fighters that her and her brother play with, the mood ring she has wanted for a long time and found at our recent trip to the zoo, the beaded pin from kids' church which is a reminder of God's gifts, her pet rock, tassel, marble, the lady Lego doctor her brother diligently searched for to find the one figure at the top of her wish list.

Treasures are the things you see with your heart.


Speaking of treasures.  Our silly cat, Bradley {named after the Bradley tank} is one our beloved pets we treasure.
You see that he thinks he is human (and a dog) and tries to sit at the table.  Despite the many times I have had to shoo him away from the table, I treasure his sweet disposition and loving nature.


Pink milk glass.  I love milk glass but when I found pink milk glass my heart skipped a beat!


Cabinet cards and vintage haberdashery
I don't know who this little girl is but I have adopted her pic in my cabinet.  As for the vintage collars, I love their worn patina and mother of pearl buttons.


Pitcher and basin.
Crackled with aqua and pink with lots of girlie tossed in, any questions?
I would have loved to be the girl to use this one every day!


I had a moment of summer inspiration.
How about a seashell nest with some treasures hidden within?

Love this birdie and its treasures!




Finally, I treasure all of you.  Thank you for all of your comments, emails and encouragement.  It is such a treasure to find such sweet friends in blog land!

What are some of the favorite things you treasure?

Hi Heidi,
Do people ever call you Holly? I get called Heidi a lot when people don't remember my name! It used to happen more in school.... many years ago!

This is a lovely post. I adore your cutie-pie kitty and how he sits at the table. My darling girl dog Chloe (who has since passed) used to mimic me - if I laid down on the sofa and crossed one leg over the other, she would almost be able to do it too. She would get in the same position as if to say... look I can get comfy with you too!

Take care,
Holly
