My treasure today is a name. It has always been a favourite and probably not too hard to guess given the name of my blog; Charlotte. It started off with my Nanna who I loved and she was very influential in my life, I was blessed to share a bedroom with her for the last years of her life when I was about 11. She was Charlotte Lucy although mostly known as Lotty.
Of course I named my favourite childhood doll Charlotte after my nanna. Her neck broke at some stage and then she went missing, I had always believed that my parents had sent her to a doll hospital! Amazingly, about ten years ago, mum and dad found her in their ceiling so this time they really sent her to a doll hospital and she was given a new head. I still think she is a gorgeous doll with cute dimply arms and legs.
Then 15 years ago I got another precious Charlotte.
Isn't she beautiful! Of course it's not just the name that's a treasure, Charlie has grown into an intelligent, caring young woman, and is definitely one of my most important treasures.
