My hubby and puppy of course!! They bring a smile to my face no matter what is thrown at me!


I treasure my family.


These are precious....your whole sight is total eye candy! (I found you through Ma petite theiere blog). Yeah...count me in! My greatest treasure (besides my family)is both of my grandmother's old black and white photos...the first thing to get packed when fires are near! Love your goodies! : )


i have lots of treasures but the first that springs to mind (possibly due to your cute little houses that remind of little faerie houses) are my two faerie books by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. I got them when i was about 8 and I have treasured them ever since. Such beautiful illustrations in them.


my kids are my treasures

Mon plus beau trésor, c'est un collier papillons en plastique que l'on m'a offert quand ma petite soeur est née! il a maintenant 23 ans, il est tout décoloré mais j'y tiens beaucoup!

I've collected many treasures over the years. One of my very favorites is a pepper shaker (the salt shaker disintegrated) that my two little girls gave me, big smiles on their faces. They were so excited about their secret; it was the first time they had spent their own pennies to pick out a gift for me. They went down the hill to the drugstore (a different time, yes) and selected the perfect gift for Mommy. I loved those precious moments, and I still have the pepper shaker on display.

Mes trésors ? J'en ai trois : Anna (8ans), Paul (3ans) et mon mari.
C'est tout, ils sont toutes mes richesses.
Et je sais qu'ils ne contiendront pas dans une de vos jolies boîtes mais peut-être pourrais-je y enfermer des mots doux, des bijoux qu'ils m'auront fabriqués ou des petites photos....?!


My biggest treasure is the people I love, second would be freedom to do what I want and say what I want and be whomever I want.


My biggest treasures other than family and my husband and my friends are the things I collect on my travels around the world. Each item reminds me of a special place or time.


my biggest treasures are my babies :)


My biggest treasure?
It's buried somewhere around here, yet so open I can clearly see it. I know exactly where it is. I don't always agree with it, but most of the time we can work things out.
If we can't - well, I have to suck it up and sulk a little over a cup of tea and then get on with... yes, life.
You've got to love life!


My biggest treasures are the wooden toys my dad made me when I was little. He used to make all kind of things but he can't anymore because of his illness.
Another treasure of mine is a small yellow teddy bear my grandma gave me many many years ago. :)


These boxes are beautiful.

My treasure....perhaps the pictures of my daughter (4 years), she does not like to paint so they are so rare...
But above material things, my treasure is my family, and the reflection of happiness in their little faces.


What a grand giveaway!! My biggest treasure is my family. Thanks for sharing...I am having a giveaway too :)

One of my greatest treasures is a wood box my wife bought me when she visited Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. The box has funny characters on the top that stand in a row holding hands, and look like they belong in Zettiland by the crazy way they are painted.


I am glad that we treasure what is really important in life. I treasure all my family and all that has been given to me, in life.

A special treasure are the children in my class, each and every one of them.


Now a fan on Facebook, signed up for the newsletter, posted you on Twitter! What a find; beautiful things. Can't wait to delve into the site more! Most treasured thing??? My son. He makes me smile, he makes me laugh, he shows me all the good and bad things about myself in a smaller, cuter version!
