A treasure trove
























Do you have a treasure chest? I do. Mine is a purple (my favorite color) cigar box my husband bought me years ago. It holds little treasures, dreams, and inspiration in it. I can't display them all, because I am pretty superstitious and some are secrets! My most treasured are notes or cards people have written me in the past full of love and gratitude that I can refer to from time to time when I'm feeling a little down. I think everyone should have a box full of  treasures, and treasures around their home. Anything that brings positive energy will do. The buddha above sits on a shelf in my guest room to look over my guests. The starfish live on the mantle in the guest room too!



OTHER TREASURES:
  • The glass bottle spilling with the tiny seaglass A.K.A Mermaids tears, was given to me by my mom as a gift from the oceans of Maine. According to legend..... only the tiniest of pieces of seaglass, are referred to as.... mermaids' tears.
  • The wishbone my husband and I split perfectly in half! (Must mean something right?)
  • A red glass heart a random women gave me in a restaurant the night I we got engaged.
  • Angel cards (also a gift from my mom) displaying inspirational words on each.
What are some of your treasures???

Oh I have a box, too! Mine isn't glamourous at all, it's just a cookie box, but I've got those cooking from my mum-in-law just after I moved counties... She passed away a couple of years later, so the box is like a memory... x

My grandmother has had those exact angel cards for about 15 years. Whenever she stayed with us, she had them. Now every time I visit her I pull out 3 angel cards. Isn't it amazing that they are obviously available around the world? Such sweet memories they bring back to me...
