"Tuesday's Treasures."

Hello and Welcome to Tuesday's Treasures.

This week I want to share a little box of goodies that reside in my sewing room. All these items belonged to my Nana.



In the box of treasures are some threads,including silk ones,very fine lace and a  filet doily crocheted by Nana in a size 40 cotton. I love that it is a Australian design with the emu's. It reminds me of the Australian Coat of Arms. Did you see the newspaper advertisement for Cashmere Soap. I wondered why Nana kept that but the mystery was solved when I turned the paper over. There were instructions for playing a game of cards. My Nana believed in keeping the mind very busy. 
To see other Treasures being showcased this week hop on  over to  Melody's blog who kindly hosts this each week. Maybe you have a treasure to share this week.

Happy days.

Hi Bev, there is nothing nicer than diving into an old treasure box of a nan....there is something fascinating about old textiles, papers and buttons...
I guess that's what our grandchildren will be doing with ours!!!

A wonderful little collection of treasures and because they were your grandmothers that makes them even more special :-)

Sally said...

WOW! That certainly is treasure. Very special indeed.

Personally I'm not a fan of emus. I was pecked on the head more than once as a child. Bad luck for sure. Even so I LOVE that crochet. Gorgeous, and yes, so uniquely Australian. Very precious.

Thanks so much for sharing these. Lovely.

There's nothing nicer than a box of treasures to remind you of someone special. I have a box of my Mum's with old letters and even an electricity bill!
