The kids went treasure hunting today.
The paddock next door was once a dumping ground.
They returned with a bucket full of bits of China, a plastic peg and what they called secret treasure.
It was a damaged plaster of Paris dog ornament.
They treasured it for many years because they imaged it was once loved by kids like them.

So sweet. Kids do love things which to grown up look like throw aways .
Yes my kids accumulated a lot of ‘treasures
Yeah so did mine. And you got rid of them when the kids tire of their “treasures”
Those kids sound like my grandfather, always nosing through other people’s cast-offs to see what was useful. That’s not disparaging, he made some pretty cool things from his found objects. Maybe the kids in your story will do the same. 🙂
Not sure my kids made anything it was more stories they created from their ‘treasure ‘.
That’s as creative as my grandfather’s clothes’ pegs. 🙂
A charming tale Michael.
Good morning Di from the bottom of the world, thanks for your lovely comment.
Hi Michael. Our day is just finishing. It’s getting colder and we are in for the coldest night apparently.
Luxury sheer luxury
I dream of a cold night
I’ll send it to you by proxy!!
Secret treasures were always wonders to find. If we are lucky and young at heart we never stop looking for those wonders. Thanks for sharing.
