Too busy today caught up in school holiday activities and trying to find things to keep everybody amused on this rainy day to take any special pics so here's just a few pics from around my house that I took another day - nothing particularly artfully arranged though sorry, I really need to spend more time doing that and not just throwing stuff on a side table or the dresser in a mad rush as I go and then hoping with crossed fingers that there will be time later to come back and make it look pretty!. 
I was browsing some of my favourite blogs today and your homes all look so very gorgeous, I'm really quite in awe - obviously no throwing stuff on side tables for you hahaha!. And big huge thanks to everybody who takes a second out of their busy lives and spends it looking at my blog even for just a moment - it's always such a nice surprise to see a comment - thank you xx

Everything in this box of treasures has been found by my family on our beaches.  I often see gorgeous beachy things in the shops that I love and would look gorgeous in here but as as lovely as they are, each of these little treasures has a story to go with it (eg remember the day we went to the North shore and it started to rain....) - makes them a bit special!  The kids love finding bits and pieces to pop in the box!

Some gorgeous items on display. The collected treasures are always the most beautiful, especially having a memory behind them. A lovely post. Have a lovely week.
