treasured

Each Wednesday I post about some sort of treasure I found during the past week. It might be thrifted or found on a walk or whispered in my ear or discovered on a dark shelf in the basement. Something. Anything that makes me feel lucky and thankful. It doesn't necessarily have to make its way home with me - it just has to be noticed. The idea is for it to cost very little and feel very big. After all, this isn't about acquiring new things; it is about paying better attention to the world around me.

If you discovered a treasure this week (a new friend, a snow fairy, a fancy dish at the thrift store, a bird's nest) please do share it, as well as any links, in the comments section below.

 I found half of a robin's egg!  And let me just tell you - it is the most beautiful, deep shade of blue.
 
  I tried my best to capture the color with different lighting and backgrounds.  It is such a complex and moody shade of blue, though. I did my best.
Oh, the luck!  Mouse keeps telling people about "our robin's egg" when they come to visit.  It's like we won a contest and she wants to show off our fancy new thing - as if people are coming to the house just to see our half of a robin's egg.  Maybe they are?

Fly on by baby robin (when you're good and strong, of course)
