Oh YES !! What treasure !! And you have photographed it so perfectly. Can't wait to see where this treasure ends up....I have the feeling it will be magically and skilfully turned into something even more wonderful. Happy creating with your "loot" Kimmie. xx

That is a sweet collection. I've saved a bunch of matchboxes and just need to start decorating them, but they are small and won't hold many treasures. I look forward to seeing what you create. Think I'll go find my glue stick. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Oh, my! To think I thought I had great treasure. :) It's absolutely charming, entrancing, admirable, desirable,
special, beautiful . . . You make me want to share more of my own. Haven't done that since last year. LOL.

Thanks for sharing.

What is the process of collecting? How did you do it? Where did you keep it until you finally lay it all out?
