We all have special little treasures hidden away.  Scrapbook embellishments, broken jewellry, childrens little toys, little ornaments and tiny craftwork.  I took a grapevine wreath, wrapped it with a bit of ribbon and glued on all my treasures I couln't bear to part with.  This wreath is at least ten years old now but I thought I would share it.  My ipad doesn't take the best pictures but you will get the idea.

This is so crazy! How long did it take you to make it. It is very cool.

It only took a couple of hours to put it together.  Cleaning out the house and finding the little things took a little longer as I kept getting distracted.

I love this so much! I wish you could get a clearer picture of it so we could see all the little ornaments, but either way, great job!
