A treasure pocket ~ for all of your
gathered finds

I finished this art piece today! It's a vintage wooden tray that I've converted into a treasure pocket. Using the pocket from an old, beat-up suitcase, a collaged background and the old wooden tray, I've put together a piece of art that is ever-changing. You can change the contents of the pocket for the season. Add things, take away things. Love, love this idea!! Remember, you can click on all of my photos to enlarge them. OH! And all the items are included that are in the pocket, copies of some of my favorite things. Soon to be in my Etsy store ~

WOW! Your creativity is mind boggling. Dawn you have an amazing eye for detail. To see it all in pieces is one thing but to assemble it into a work of art like this is entirely
“GENIUS,” just like Lori said.

You inspire me!

My goodness but I do love this one! I can see it hanging in my home and only wish I was in the US so I could order it. You are truly fulfilling your destiny Dawn because these pieces just keep getting better each time I see one. Great work!

This is so cool! I could see this as a holder for daily mail. What a pleasure it would be to sort through junk mail and bills if they were pulled from a satin pocket! Great job!
