Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

My treasure to share with you today is my little collection of trinket boxes gathered together over many years. Another of my weaknesses I'm afraid. I just love tiny things with lids. Several are from England bought back by my Nanna from her trips, one was painted by my Mum, a Royal Winton chintz one, Delft china is another, gifts from friends, a couple of artists pieces and my very favourite is my Nanna's silver and red enamel one. It was with her from girlhood and sat on her dressing table and she kept her earrings in it. The enamel is a little worn but I know it was her lovely hands that were responsible and that makes it all the more of a treasure to me. Now it sits on my dressing table with my earrings in it as well as a pair of her marquisite earrings.
What are you treasuring today, share it at Melody's and see what other treasures are there.
Don't forget July giveaway see previous post.

I really liked this little saying too:
True friends bend with you when the going gets tough, while the fake break.
Have a wonderful day,
Blessings Michelle
