Tuesday's Treasures.


I am back joining in Tuesday's Treasures with Melody.  Thank you for hosting Tuesday's Treasures Melody.This week I am sharing a very new treasure. I received this cup and saucer set from Mum for Christmas.

It is from the Maxwell and Williams range and it is called "Rambling Rose" I just love my new treasure.

I have another treasure to share with you this week also.

Melody sent me a parcel of treasure. I was a winner on her blog a few weeks back. A Spencer Museum charm pack and those most lovely carved bookmark made from wood. With a kangaroo paw design on it. A few ladybirds managed to fly into the parcel as well. Thank you so much Melody. You made my day.

Now some of you know we have had a computer problem here at Kainga. In the meantime we have set up an old laptop. We hadn't used this computer before now,I was having terrible problems with scrolling down and the picture being wavy when I scrolled down. Last night I was determined to find the cause of it. A few searches of pages on the Internet and I found we didn't have our "Nvidia" video driver installed on our computer. I wasn't game enough to install it but showed Ian this morning what I had discovered. He quickly found where to upload it and BINGO it works perfectly. I told him he didn't have to buy me the new car straight away!!! Using this computer will be fun from now.

Hope you have a truly wonderful day.
Happy days.
Bev C

Your tea cup is gorgeous. I got some for Christmas too. I am collecting tea cup and saucer sets for a High Tea in March to raise money for Acromegaly. I received two cups from my Mum and one each from her girlfriends. I think I will have to post some pics on my blog :-)
How awesome are your treasures from Melody, the book mark looks divine, but I love anything made of timber.
Hope you are3 no where near the fires and are safe and well.

Tu pequeña taza y su plato es más una reliquia que un tesoro. ¡Es hermosísima!
Y la tecnología también puede ser un tesoro... ¡A veces!

Hello Bev,

Good to hear about you finding out what was wrong with your computer. There are time we are forced to sit and figure out some of the computer issues on our own. : ( I'm also glad to hear about the rain you had a couple of post ago. Hope you get more too.

What a great parcel from Melody and I love to buy charm packs too. They are fun to work with. Your cup and saucer is beautiful and it's perfect for you.

And what a sweet person Carolyn is for caring for those poor dogs. They also need to keep warm during those chilly days. And yes, I love magazines too. : )
Have a wonderful day!!
