Treasures ..........

Yesterday I received this lovely Spring parcel in the post....

 from none other than Melody at The House on The Hill


there is a beautifully hand stitched felt table topper... one of Melody's fantastic pins, some seeds - basil and pansies (perfect for spring sewing) and chocolates.... (one flew right out of it's wrapping and into my tummy quicksmart)

so I put these straight onto my treasure table... which is what I am showing today for Treasure Tuesday...


This is a lovely hardwood table that used to live in my grandparents house
if I remember right it is made from yellow wood and black wood
native trees in south africa
(don't quote me on this information!!)

It is really lovely and smooth - the grain of the wood is tight and it is a piece I really really love having

I try and change the look every now and then so it is wondeful to have it decorated with some spring prettiness


Here is a closer picture so you can look at the handwork in this table topper...... I am just awed with this special gift - isn't is so happy?


Thank you Melody.... you are a Treasure yourself...

Hope you can pop by at Melody's and see some of her work and join us in Treasure Tuesday

Hi Fiona, I loved making a present for you. I saw a Christmas candle mat on your To Do list so I thought I'd make you one for spring too.
