Christmas Treasures...

...do you have any?

My treasures are things that I have made for the Holiday season. Each year they are dusted off and packed away safely and then the following year they are brought out again to take their place with the rest of the decor.

These photos are pretty awful (dark mornings don't make for easy photography) but I wanted to share this couple of ceramic 'baskets' that I made whilst attending ceramic art classes...



...they were coloured using Dona's Hues and LOTS of dry brushing.

Although they are lidded, they are never used for anything other than decoration and are usually placed somewhere viewable but not reachable. I had a ceramic handled basket with a matching holly & cone panel and it was picked up and dropped so now I don't take the risk as these are things I can not replace.

What do you have amongst your Christmas things that you treasure? Is it things that the children/grandchildren have made or things that have been handed down?

I would love to know what sort of things other folk think of as treasures................................

They are gorgeous..Your very clever..
I have some strange treasures... Shells given to me over the years by special people in my life, including dad... I have them on a shelf in the dining room, A high shelf I might add.. Some are over ten years old now.. and each has a memory behind it.

Nice job on the painting Toni. Their beautiful and destined to be Treasured heirlooms someday.
I have tons of things I cherish at Christmas, but the one thing that means the most is a frame (rather long) of the photos of my son with Santa from the first year till he was around eight or nine. I miss those days so much! It always makes me smile and brings a tear to my eyes.
