The ground in the woods near my house is covered by a thick layer of leaves. A quick hike in the morning gives forth so many beautiful sights.  It is a slow go because my youngest is determined to walk herself over all the bumps and stumps so I have time to take in all the treasures all over the ground and around.  My oldest seems to stuff every other leaf in his pocket as he treasure hunts as well.  We always come home and put his findings in books to flatten them and you would be hard pressed to find a book on the shelf without a leaf in it:)

 On the end of these pieces are fun treasures as well.  Disc beads, pressed bead, wood and leather dangle on the red  and a leather button, globe locket, stacked brown lamp work beads and an antiqued brass leaf decorate the brown. 


  1. Your treasure carry all reminds me of the spirit bags in a Jean Auel novel. The cave people put significant things in little leather bags on leather strings for around their necks, to keep their spirits happy. I loved the first 2 or 3 of her books.

  2. Thank you Terri! Love it! So interesting and wonderful!
