tuesday treasures

I always remember this sitting on our kitchen window sill at home. I don't know when it first appeared there, I will have to ask mum. I just always remember it being there. About 8 years ago mum renovated her whole house and especially the kitchen. She was determined to have a good clean out and had boxes of stuff she was ruthlessly throwing out (so out of character for a chronic hoarder like her!). Each time I would visit I would see boxes of stuff and have to fight back the urge to reclaim all those childhood memories of her kitchen paraphernalia. I did sneak out a few things and this was one of them. How could she throw this out after all those years???
I snuck it home and cleaned it a little, it still needs a proper clean. It now sits on a shelf next to my parents photo. It just reminds me of being a child and how much I used to love to look at this little ornament.
Thanks for popping by for Tuesday treasures.

It is beautiful. It reminds me of something from my childhood I have tucked away in a box I will have to get it out for next Tuesday

Oh how cute! Reminds me of little ornaments you can still buy today at christian bookstores. I wonder where it came from..? You'll have to ask your Mum and let us know! I love your photos from the last post by the way! Very cute!

I'm glad you were able to save this sweet ornament. It is just the sort of thing I liked when I was a little girl.

It is hard to part with special things. Glad you held on to this one with all the memories attached to it. Do you think one of the boys will hold on to it?
