More of Barbara’s Treasures

We visited our friends Bill and Barbara yesterday, to take Bill a little “Get Well” gift after his recent surgery.  Barbara is a keen crafter and she likes to keep her hands busy.  She was keen to show me her lovely Witch Doll, a gift from her daughter.

Two knitted tots were sitting on a chair.  They are so cute,  a little Gingerbread Man and a doll dressed in a pretty knitted lemon dress and hat.

I noticed a little basket on the table full of pretty pincushions in lovely soft colours.  A couple were embroidered, there was a blue-mauve patchwork pincushion, and a lemon heart shaped pincushion embellished with ribbons and lace.  And can you see the tiny little doll in the front with her pretty lace dress?

And look what I found displayed on the bathroom window sill.  Two glass jars shaped in the female form filled with tiny coloured pebbles.  I haven’t seen anything quite like this before.

Barbara has the most interesting collection of all sorts of treasures, and there is always something different to see each time we visit.
