About 6 years ago my parents moved into a smaller home in a retirement village so we helped sort out their things as they downsized. We came across my grandmother's silver tea set, all black and tarnished, and my sisters said that it looked like something I would be interested in. Sadly, since then it has sat in my garage still black and tarnished ... until last week! As we tidied the garage we came across it and Charlie and Paul cleaned and polished the four pieces ...

|I'm not sure what this bowl would be used for|
So this is part of my treasure for today, beautiful shiny silver and even more special is that they were my grandmother's who was very dear to me!
I have another beautiful treasure today ...
Charlie is a treasure to me and it was a lovely surprise to read her blog post last week. Unfortunately she went over the handlebars of a bike yesterday and has broken the radial head of her right arm. She was very brave until she realised it would mean no swimming for her when we go on holiday next week (and she is my water baby!) and we will need to arrange to visit the hospital nearest to where we are staying. We are spending ten days in the Bay of Islands so we will go to Whangarei Hospital. At least Charlie hasn't been to the Bay of Islands before so we will be able to find lots of other ways to make our holiday special!
Thanks to Melody at The House on the Side of the Hill for hosting Tuesday's treasures. Melody is also hosting a Penny Rug sew along which is looking fabulous so far, check out her beautiful blog.
Happy stitching, Wendy
