Tuesday Treasures

Time is whizzing by at the moment, so here we are again- Tuesday and it's time for a treasure.
This dear little clock has sat on a shelf at my house for about 30 years.  My mum and dad bought it home for me from a trip to England.  It is an old tea tin made into a clock and they chose it because they know how addicted I am to a cup of tea.  When I was a little girl my mum always woke me up with a cup of tea and a biscuit delivered to me in bed.  I can't remember a time when this didn't happen so I must have been very young when this tradition was established.  Luckily my DH continued in this practice and so I always start the day with a big mug of beautiful, energising yet comforting tea.

I'd love to see and hear about one of your treasures so please share by clicking on Mr Linky.
