Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

                                                  
Tuesday's Treasures are here again with the very lovely MELODY over at The House on the side of the Hill where we share the treasures close to our heart.
My treasure today is two Christmas items that once belonged to my Husbands Grandparents.
The first is Old Saint Nick (he was featured at the top of my last post) and we found him in a box under an old divan. So we rescued him. He was in remarkably good condition and my husband remembers him from Christmas's past. Now he helps us celebrate with old fashioned style and he looks quite pleased about it if you ask me.


Old Saint Nick!
The other little treasure is a pair of Christmas Elves heads set amongst gold tinsel which we love to hang on our tree each year. I love that they still get to be seen amongst the branches each year.
Sweet little Elf!
We don't know how old these decorations are and as they were working class folk I doubt that they cost a great deal as they would not have been able to afford it but they are real treaures to us.
Blessings Michelle xx
