Tuesday's Treasures.

Hello,

Welcome to Tuesday's Treasures kindly hosted by Melody from The House on the side of the Hill.
At Kainga our dining table is very old. It has four drawers,two on each side. One or two drawers having nothing in them. Meanwhile the others contain all sorts of treasure.



There are lots of "real" serviettes. Most of these I have bought from garage sales. The plain white ones came from "Byfield House" a old home in town here. It was run by a lovely couple as a restaurant many years ago. It is now a private home again. The embroidered ones at the front were bought for a dollar or two. There are four of them but one must be hiding in the linen cupboard.

Another treasure you can find in the drawer are letters from Lucy to her Dad when she was much younger.
It says,

Dear Daddy

You are the best Dad in the world
Love from Lucy
I love you Dad



You will also find this little bit of school work done by Lucy.


Now I just wish those damn Slaters were bright pink like this so I could see them in the garden!!!

Now I am of to see what other Treasure's were found this week.

Happy days.
Bev C

What precious treasures. Your linen is divine and your daughter's letters - well just beautiful. What a wonderful treasure to keep in your table drawers.
I too wish I had drawers in my dining table - it is actually one thing I used to wish for :-)
Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Our table's drawers are full of pens and pencils that no longer work, unbent paper clips, lone staples and broken rubber bands... your post may inspire me to clean them out and replace the junk with linen and memories! toni xxx

I think your daughter's letter is a lovely treasure. I love they way they are so open with their feelings when they are little.

Hello Bev,

What beautiful embroideries you have there. Love to have them around the house and I have a few that were my Mothers. I hope some day to do some of my own. I bought a book several years ago called "Fine Machine Sewing" by Carol Laflin Ahles. Maybe some day I will give a try. Just love the drawings and what Treasures they are too. Have a wonderful day.
Blessings : )

How cool to have these treasures in your dining room drawers! I do wish we had saved some of our fun art work from when we were kids. Cool to have drawers in your table to store goodies like this!
