Eye Spy .. A Small Object

I think that the Crafty Librarian's theme for the week is super sweet, but I discovered our house is not the place for small, they tend to get lost, eaten or smothered. I have though loved checking out everyone elses little treasures.
Glen took the kids and puppy for a walk today and each bought me back a little flower, straight to my desk for them to watch over me.
The little nut was a present from Caleb on one trip to the park, I can never throw these things out, it too sits on my desk.
The note I have been carrying around for years in my purse, it was the first from Glen, he sent it wrapped in raisin toast that I ordered and it still has butter stains. He was working at a cafe that was my regular. He also gave me free gelato, not that I am that cheap to fall for such things, but we are talking tim tam and pistachio gelato here.
Next week, Handmaiden, the maker of gorgeous little things herself and one of the most committed bloggers. Her daily posts are always really great, I envy the every day writers.

GLEN IS SO ROMANTIC. I even enlarged the photo so I could read the note (psycho?). SO DARN CUTE!

It gave me butterflies and reminded me of falling in love all over again.

That is such a romantic story - and still with the butter stains, how divine! Love those sweet romantic momentoes. I still have show tickets from the first night Alex and I went out... we're all so sentimental aren't we?
Now, should I go and enlarge the pic like PMM did and read what Glen wrote? I'm curious...
