Tueday Treasures

When I was a very little girl my parents bought me a set of the Arthur Mee Children's Encyclopaedia.  I poured over these volumes for countless hours as I was a voracious reader.  I loved the whimsical illustrations in the poetry sections

 and particularly enjoyed science sections.

They've been on my book shelves for many many years and I must confess I hadn't looked at them for a very long time.   Recently I had a huge rearrange of my books and stopped to flick through these volumes.  They had me engrossed all afternoon , so many memories came flooding back.

So these dear memory-filled books are my Tuesday Treasures this week.  If you have something that you treasure please pop your details into Mr Linky and play along.

You must pop over to visit Torie Jayne- one of the most creative places in blogworld.

How amazing are these birdhouse key holders?  Here's the LINK to a brilliant tutorial.  Enormous thanks to Torie Jayne.
Today is the last day to enter my giveaway.  Please leave me a comment on my Wednesday June 27 post.  Good luck.


  1. I remember reading a book of poems and sayings when I was little It was called the Bumper Book. I have no idea why. But there were 1930's type ilistrations and mother goose like poems.
    "There was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile..." I have a copy still, somewhere
