Tuesday's Treasures

My treasures this week are newbies that have been sent to me from Krafty Panda. Amanda and I share an interest in all things from nature so we did a little swap. I sent her some rocks and fossils plus a few quilty related pieces and in return  Amanda sent me an amazing collection of shells,

plus some thundereggs
and these gorgeous little strawberry clip ons and lovely shell fabric!
Thank-you Amanda, I love them all so much!

For more Tuesday Treasures bloghop your way to Clare's.

I do have another finish from the weekend too, another one of Annie's Key Holders from her latest book
I really enjoy making these!

I'm so glad you like everything Jo!! Don't you just love the fact we are both collectors of this kind of thing?! I love all of my new treasures!
Isn't the colour on the nurettes amazing? They are jet black when alive, but when they die, the colour fades to dark purple, to light purple, to pink, to white. So you end up with a variety of colours and patterns! I only with they were bigger! lol
Hugs!
