This is the spot where I show you mine and you can show me yours!
Each week, I'll post a picture of one of my treasures - those little things which may be worthless to anyone else, but to me they're absolutely priceless!
Why not take a picture of one of your little treasures, click on the linky widget at the bottom of this post and tell me all about it - I can't wait to hear your stories :o)
Today I want to show you this funky hat ...
... which I love because it was hand made by my Mum. A few years ago she had a little studio, where she painted pictures and made all kinds of handcrafted things to sell. If you look closely, you can see the price tag still attached - I can't bring myself to take it off because it has Mum's handwriting on it.
Mum was always an individual, a creative soul and a free spirit. She tried her hand at many arts and crafts over the years and it had always been her dream to have her own business selling the things that she made. Sadly, it wasn't to be, maybe because she just wasn't practical enough ... but she never stopped dreaming.
Here are a couple of Mum's paintings, which I love because they bring back such happy memories of a day by the sea in Cornwall when my children were young ...
This one shows Tom and Joe paddling ... I love how the style is so simple and sketchy yet she managed to catch a real likeness of the boys. Here's the other one ...
... this one shows my brother's Dad, Winston, playing in the waves with Richard - such a vivid reminder of that day.
Tomorrow would have been Mum's 77th birthday. Happy Birthday Mum xxx
