I have missed my lovely friend MELODY and it is so nice to have her back. Once again she is graciously hosting Tuesday's Treasure for us. Pop over and visit her blog.
My treasure today is such a simple little item and you know what they say about the simple things in life. However I must admit to a bit of an addiction to them.....it is the very humble "Bookmark" I LOVE a pretty bookmark.....can't walk past a pretty or different one. I am the person who is so excited when I receive a souvenir bookmark as a gift when my friends return from holidays. I have bookmarks which are crocheted, stitched, cross stitched, painted, wooden, scrapbooked, feature special quotes, places I have visited, works of art, nature and various other mediums and I love them all. In fact that is part of the enjoyment in starting a new book for me is which of my favourites will mind my page while I am away from the story......I know Weirdo!!! Don't care! Love Them!
I am a fairly even tempered type but one of the things that makes me cross is a page corner turner downers.....aaarrrghh! Ask my children. Become enlightened folks and get a bookmark!
Here is a small selection of them as some of my other treasures are minding beloved pages in special books.
So here's to the humble but very important "Bookmark".

Lavender. Oh I do so love the smell of Lavender. Inside was the cutest Lavender sachet 3 scrummy pieces of fabric (still stroking those) a beautiful handmade fabric brooch in one of my fav colours RED and the sweetest notepad which has one of my very favourite 'furry Aussies' on it a Wombat scratching himself and it is called a "Scratchpad" how cute is that. Thank you so much Fee. I love it all.
I guess I better not forget to tell you who the winner is of my 400th post giveaway.
The winner is Anthea from Hibiscus Stitches. Congratulations Anthea. Please let me have your snail mail address so I can get your goodies off to you.
Thank you everyone for leaving me such lovely comments.
Well I am off, back to my quilting. I am quilting the border now so I am on the home stretch and want to keep the momentum going.
