"Tuesday's Treasures."

Hello and Welcome to Tuesday's Treasures.

This week I want to share with you my little Blue and White milk jug.

Little Blue and White Milk Jug.
Years ago when all the children were very young I wanted to learn how to do ceramics. To start with I wasn't able to go but sent along our eldest daughter Ainsley, she went with a school friend. I have always wanted a milk jug like this. So Ainsley spent hours working on this. I love it. Unfortunately one day the children were misbehaving and David grabbed the jug and his Sister's were chasing after him. I just knew disaster was going to happen. The jug got dropped. It was mended but it no longer holds fluids. I will always treasure this little jug and its journey.

I also finished the Milk Jug Cover I was working on. All little jugs should have a cover.

We had  a great day yesterday afternoon. It started raining at 5.00pm and didn't stop until about 11.00pm. We recorded 32mls of rain here at Kainga. This is a huge amount for us and the good thing it was good steady soaking rain.

Check out other "Treasures" at Melody's blog.

Happy days.

Blue & white china is always beautiful. What a clever wee thing she was. At least it can still look pretty. I love the crochet jug covers. Tracee xx

Love the little jug and why it is so special.
I think all jugs should have a cover too!

Those things that have been hand made at school do become treasures. They are firsts in every sense of the word.
