My Tuesday Treasure is .....

A Treasure Chest......

for my favourite pirate who turned 5 last week

This lovely edible treasure chest was made by DD1 - I think it's wonderful

Our little Pirate lives in the UK and he was 3 last time I cuddled him.....  it really is time for another cuddle. 
I felt really bad&sad as I had promised him I would be there for his party but things didn't work out.....

(eat your heart out Johnny Depp - you can walk the plank)

Pop along to Melody's House on the Side of the Hill and see what other treasures have been found - I do love the cottages she has found this week

My little blocks are growing......


oh - I love, love yellow daisies.....

I really should clear up the loose threads before taking pictures!!

don't you just love this cute little stitchery on a 2" square

Definitely a project where I can get lost in my Happy Place

Hope you can too!
