Some Treasures for Tuesday...

This Norman Rockwell figurine is part of a collection my wonderful in-laws had.
It's about 4 1/2 inches wide and long.
I just love it.

This is a Yellow Rose of Texas that Will gave me one year for Mother's Day.
I just love it.

This is a mug Laura gave me one Mother's Day.
I just love it.

Will gave me his unique 'lighted flower arrangement' one year for Christmas.
I just love it.

This is a picture of my dear dad when he was little bitty.

I just love it.

This is an Asian screen that belonged to my in-laws.
My mother gave me the round art on the left of it.
They were made for each other.

I just love them.

This is part of my mother's collection of birds.  This one is my favorite.
The next picture shows it to scale.
(We're housing my mom's collection now - and so enjoying it.)

I just love those birds.

This last treasure is my favorite...

My twin made this for me before she died.

Here it is closer.

You can see why I love it... and why it is wonderful.

Here is part of it super-close.

That's counted cross-stitch, which is not just a pattern on some material.
You have to COUNT those stitches.

This was a work of love... and I LOVE IT!!!

I'll blog more treasures maybe next Tuesday. (If I remember. Well, I should. I really enjoyed that.)  :)

I love your little trinkets, too... and funny how they all seem to fit together... and describe you!

What wonderful, beautiful treasures! Your first one reminded me of a collection of Norman Rockwall figures I had and kept with a friend several years ago. I had totally forgotten about them. I wonder if she still has them.

One of my finest treasures is a marble Brandon gave me for Mother's Day once (he was 4 or 5 yrs old). He said it was his favorite and wanted me to have it. I know there is a feel-good story that goes with each of our treasures!!

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
