A little PICK me up!

I managed to snag a Treasury West the other day, and I was feeling a bit down at the time, so I decided to make it a Pick Me Up collection. Beautiful items to lift your mood. :) I found these pieces from the shops of friends, and it's one of my favourite Treasuries ever.

(See below for a diagram of links to these items.)

Bitty Bird * Watercolour * The Ocean.....

Tropical * Cloud Dance * Pink Rose

Ruffles Hat * Wave Rider * Coffee Mug

Glass Pendant * Poppies * Glamor Ring
