Tuesday Treasures with Mel!

 Tuesday Treasures with Melody from The House on the Side of the Hill is back for 2013. This year Tuesday Treasures will be a monthly event. I think I'll be able to find a treasure to share once a month.
My treasure is My Learn to Cook Book. It is the first cook book in my now quite large collection. My parents gave it to me for one of my birthdays. I think I was six or seven. 
 
 In the days before fairy cakes (or patty cakes) become known as cupcakes!
I remember making the coconut ice.

Head over to Mel's to see who else has some
treasures to share!
A lovely package arrived yesterday. It was from Sandi of A Legacy of Stitches. Some lovely Christmas fabric from Jacquelynne's (The Noble Wife) range. Thank you Sandi.
