tuesday treasures plus some...

My christmas trees are coming together nicely, just need to glue the trunk into the cotton reels and find some beads to put on the top.Even dh commented how pretty they are. I just love them.
this swap item has decided to make an appearance after having so much difficulty loading the pic the other day!


 couldn't resist this Maisie pic. I know, she is always lying down or asleep but she is a cat! It is so hard to get a pic of the boys as they are always running around.
 Here is my Tuesday Treasure for this week. Clare is winding this up in a week or two .
This tray belonged to my grandmother and she used it often. I loved it as I have always been an avid dog lover. I secretly wished that she would give it to me one day. After she passed away, when we were cleaning out my grandparents home it turned up and everyone said that I should have it. It is just beautiful. (the little tennis racquet clock on the side was made by no 3 son in woodwork. He has made some really great pieces-could be his calling?)

 Here is a mini camellia from our garden. It has flowered after all the others have finished their flush of blooms. I love the flowers just before they burst open fully.

sorry for all the pics...
Have a lovely week..
Marina
ps and it's unanimous- No one saw Noah in the 60's!

This tray must almost be an antique as I haven't seen this style of design since my grandmother was alive. The dogs are quite cute, aren't they?

Ah that is the life, lazing around sleeping all day...Maisie has it all sussed.

The Christmas trees look lovely, and the stocking is well gorgeous.


Love the camellia, it is beautiful.

Your tray is gorgeous. The artists back then created the best looking dogs on chocolate tins and trays. I love your little Christmas tree decorations. So simple but so effective. Maisie reminds me of my Elsie who passed away a few years ago. She is very sweet.
