Treasure Box


I love treasure! Don't you? I also love keeping my little treasures in pretty little boxes! This box was made for me by my oldest daughter and at one time it held sewing notions. Then shortly after participating in my first Teacup Swap I decided to use it for holding notes and such from my dear blogging friends. I added some lace, doilies and flowers of my own. As you can see, I need to move onto a larger box! But I treasure each and every item stored in here!


If you are a regular reader, you may even recognize some of these items as I have probably mentioned them in past blog posts or they may have been included in teacup swap reveals.



I love the Helen Keller quote on this bookmark and it is so true: " My friends have made the story of my life."


I love these words as well.......wonderful words to live by.


I love my little trove of treasures. I feel blessed to have met so many lovely ladies in the blogging world and look forward to meeting so many more.

Have a perfectly lovely day! It's sunny and warm here in NH!!! Yeah!

  2. Linda, I'm beginning to see that you and I have much in common, except I cannot sew quite like you.
    I too love treasure boxes to keep things in, my father is same way, maybe I got that from him. :-) and the prettier the better.
    I lime your way of keeping your blogging friends all together,I think I will do that as well, thanks for the inspiration. ;-)
    Right now they go together with all my treasured cards.

    You mentioned in one of your replies to my comment about living to iron. I an the same way and started when I was around eight,I would iron mens shirts for my mothers friends for 25 cents each. That was good money for an eight year old.
    I find ironing therapeutic.

    Its so nice to visit with you, and thank you for visiting my posts and leaving such sweet comments.
    Enjoy your good weather.
    Blessings, Debbie

    1. Hi Debbie, yes, I do believe we have much in common! I love keepsake items and storing them in pretty boxes. Then I enjoy periodically going through all of them and looking at all of the contents. In this case, there are so many pretty little cards, tags, etc ....it's just fun to look at them all again.

      Yes, i do love to iron, especially linens. I too ironed when I was about 8. Begged my mom so she let me iron my dad's hankies.

      I spent some time catching up on blog reading today and I enjoyed my visit to yours. Your family is beautiful!

      Thanks for stopping in again today.

  3. Hi Linda, what a darling box to hold your special treasures. I do the same thing and it is so much fun to go through it revisit and remember. I also use many for book markers and have a special drawer in my hutch near my books to hold all the many cards and tags that I use when reading.

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Hope you are seeing more spring each day. Have a wonderful and blessed week my friend.
    Sending you BIG hugs, CM

    1. Hi Celeste,
      Spring is here for sure! I am doing my happy dance! Thanks for stopping by and your kind words. Yes, it is fun to revisit and remember! The kindness and generosity of people not yet met really amazes me! I too use some for bookmarks! Speaking of hutch drawers, mine is overflowing with cards, notes and photos! I need to get in there and organize!

      So nice to hear from you Celeste. I trust that you are continuing to have sunny, warm weather. It is a bit chilly this morning in the house but it is 52 degrees outside and the sun is breaking through the clouds. Another beautiful spring day! Have a nice week and enjoy your spring weather as well.
      Hugs,
      Linda

    1. Hi Jemma, Thank you for checking in. I appreciate your sweet comments--always so positive and supportive! I'm glad you enjoy your visits, I also enjoy my visits to your blog. I haven't stopped thinking about that tulle skirt you posted and now I have to ask you something (and I am whispering), are we too old to wear something like that? Lol....but it sure is pretty!!! Hope all is well and that you are well rested after all your travels. Take good care Jemma!

  5. Awww.... this was just the sweetest, my friend :) I loved getting a peek into your treasure box. I spotted something from Celeste right away - her beautiful handiwork stands out :)

    It is always a joy to pull out the sweet items from precious friends. Hugs to you, dear Linda!

    1. Good morning Stephanie,
      Yes it is fun! I tend to hold on to every note and card I receive. You can imagine all that I have collected and saved over 32 years and having 3 daughters. I got "whoozits and whatsits galore" I guess you could say! I suppose there are much worse things than holding onto cherished mementos!

      Take care Stephanie, thanks for stopping by and for leaving me your very sweet comment! Hope you have a perfect spring day!
      Hugs,
      Linda
