Treasures


Donna of the Ribboned Crown Blog is hosting a Swashbuckle Soiree this weekend. Have started the party with a little box of treasures.

“Art is not a treasure in the past or an importation from another land, but part of the present life of all living and creating peoples.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

And with that message – I am off to see what other creative things we can get into this weekend.







Treasure box covered with music papers and lined with dictionary pages.


























Often include dictionary definitions in paper projects. Funny that in this era of on line everything, old dictionaries are now a treasure from the past. And always interesting to reflect on what the words might mean to you.

I love the treasure box. Be careful I am sure the pirates are on their way to take it as their own.
