Tuesday Treasures

This week I am linking up to Melody, of The House on the Hill, for Tuesday Treasures.
Inspired by BOTH my daughters doing hand-craft things this week, I have pulled these treasures down off the wall.
 These special little ornaments were made for me by my girls one wet and wintry school holidays years ago. ED was 12 and YD was nearly 9.
They made them completely unaided as my sewing room at that house was separated from the rest of the house, and I wasn't allowed to see what they were up to.
The above 2 dolls were made following pattens but the one below used a Thelwell cartoon as inspiration. The writing on the sign has long since faded but it says something to the effect that "if you are close enough to read this, you are likely to get kicked!"

Angel on Horseback.
And they even labelled them - of which I am grateful as I couldn't remember when they were made - there's a lesson there somewhere!
Thank you Melody for allowing me to link up for Tuesday Treasures. To see more treasures visit Melody here.
Thank you all for visiting - have a great week and I hope you're having Stress free Christmas Creativeness:-)

Treasures to be sure! I love the one that says 'if you are close enough to read this your are likely to get kicked!' That's funny!
So sweet that your girls made them for you.

Aww, I used to love what my kids would make for me, most of which is now packed away as I'm still preparing to move. These are so precious!
