This week, we invite you to share what you treasure. Our first Guest Host for July, Aletta, is asking us to share our treasures. If you read my blog sometimes, I am sure you know some of my treasures already – they are many, just like yours, but these are my most treasured treasures:
Everything nature …
Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
– Hans Christian Andersen
My number one friend, Milo…
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
– Roger Caras, author of A Dog Is Listening: The Way Some of Our Closest Friends View Us
And of course my funny family –
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.
– George Bernard Shaw
Since some weeks now, I have to add a new sweet treasure to my family – my first grandchild – Myra.
Children are the keys of paradise.
– Eric Hoffer
Never sleepy, always alert – so, this is the first time I have seen her yawning properly!
Please visit Aletta’s wonderful post for more inspiration, and if joining us, remember to link back to it and use the Lens-Artists tag so we can find you.
Last week we focused on eyes and the responses we had were fun and very diverse. Continuing the tradition of inviting Guest Hosts during the month of July, next week is Jez Braithwaite’s turn with Seeing Double as his challenge. Be sure to take a look on Saturday 9th of July.

She’s gorgeous! I see the family resemblance.

Ah, thank you Susan! And I love that quote too!
Coming late onto this send inevitably a huge smile formed seeing Milo’s photo . . . and then came that gorgeous sleepy but secure monkeyface belonging to the newest member of the familt . . . knowing she is loved to bits already . . . she’s a gorgeous bub, granma !!!
Eha, you are so funny and always making me smile! Little Myra is my sunshine in this grim world. ♥
You are rich indeed! And a part of that is your outlook on the world. Beautiful photos from a beautiful soul.
I don’t know how you have this way with words, Jo. You should whrite more poetry! ♥

Welcome to the best club ever – being a grandmother! Myra is precious!

Wonderful treasures Ann-Christine and many happy congratulations with your beautiful grandchild Myra! 💝
Thank you so much!
Priceless and precious treasures
Thank you so much – yes♥
I love your post, AC. Of course I’m not surprised you’ve featured Milo, nature and your family. The newest member of the family is such a beautiful child. What a precious little yawn! Wonderful!
Thank you, Patti – Myra is my sunshine in this world.
Milo – Myra and the great family in the trees
Love this post
Haha, yes, the family in the trees – what a fun compilation…sounds like a chimpansee family! We almost are…I know…
I like that photo so much
Great set of treasures, little Myra the best, so adorable!
Thank you, Sue – she’s my sunshine in this grim world.
Well done her
Yes, I would have guessed but still enjoyed the photos. I treasure similar things and especially that first grandchild. A special time!
I know you do, Janet – we are lucky!
That last treasure is truly precious. Truly family is one’s greatest treasure… eccentric Uncle Jim notwithstanding. (Doesn’t everyone have an Uncle Jim in their family?) >grin<
Hehe, well, John, a life without Uncle Jim would be unimaginable ;-D
Lovely photos and thoughts! And welcome to Myra. Are we boring you already, I wonder? 😉
A view of all the treasures in your life! All you can ask for, really
Yes, It is all I could ask for. And more, because we never expected to have grandchildren. So grateful. Thank you.
Beautiful photos of beautiful treasures! And many congratulations on the arrival of your first grandchild 🤗
Thank you so much, Sarah! I am afraid there will probably be more photos of her…
Ann-Christine, your new grandbaby, Myra is so cute! I know that she will be one of the best treasures you will ever have! The same goes for your family too! We are blessed to have family and to treasure them too! Thank you so much for joining in on this challenge Ann-Christine! I really appreciate it!
Aletta, thank you for launching the beautiful challenge too!
Thank you so much Ann-Christine!
Treasures indeed, A-C. But what an absolute poppet Myra is. A treasure of treasures.
Thank you so much, Tish – she is my sunshine ♥
What beautiful and thoughtful treasures Ann-Christine. And congratulations on your first grandchild. Myra is beautiful.
Thank you, Anne – she is my sunshine ♥
Wonderful treasures 😍
Oh Ann-Christine, what a gorgeous little one; lucky you!!! Your images this week are wonderful as always but Myra is definitely the scene-stealer!!
Thank you, Tina! She is a gem.
