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.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

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!

I have lots of little ornaments.  This is a great idea, and I need a new wreath for the front door.
