I'm a Treasure Seeker...And Finder... And Reciever...

Hello my dear friends,

the morning of yesterday started out OK and then turned sour shortly after when the rain set in and it meant that my contractors packed up for the day and left understandably again due to not being able to cut wood in the pouring rain or do the electrics either ( I am not a fan of rain at the moment!) so Tim Horton's it was for a nice cup of coffee and a chat with my daughter Ashleigh.

Looking outside at the weather the decision was made that shopping around for treasures would be the ideal thing to do so off we headed to one of the antique stores we often visit and after 45 minutes or so we left again ~ me with a few new treasures in my bag and with ideas of what to do with them in mind.

I found some old jewellery with the help from my daughter and an old shaker top ~ I feel another pincushion coming on, ha ha !!

Here are my latest treasure findings ...

an old brooch and belt buckle ...

a pair of tin earrings ...

and a new shaker top!

Feeling a bit happier than I was earlier we headed home with another treasure waiting for me ...

... in the shape of a package in my mailbox ~ it was my giveaway gift from Rhonda at "A Little Bit French"!!

And here it is ...

it is so beautiful and delicate!

Thank you so much Rhonda for your wonderful gift  ~  even though it is still raining outside, you have brightened my day and that was so nice of you!!

I hope you are all well.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
