Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

My treasure today is actually a part of a wall in my dining room that has a selection of things I treasure on it.
Firstly there are 3 cross stitches of teacups that I worked a long time ago which still give me pleasure, 2 small rosey plates the top one being a 21st gift from family friends visiting from England at the time (both have since passed away). The sweet little tag on the plate holder was painted by my friend Tracey...I do love a pretty tag. My doll "Patty" who was featured in Handmade and loves cupcakes and was my first and only attempt so far in designing a doll and lastly a painted wooden cut out of teacups which I painted at Traceys and is one of her lovely designs. I don't know what it is about this little group but it makes me happy when I look at it. What are you treasuring today visit Melody's Tuesdays Treasures at http://thehouseonthesideofthehill.blogspot.com/ and share your special treasure.
