Collected treasures

23 Jan 2015



Our finds from the last few weeks... driftwood, pebbles, chalk stones, random plastic pieces (mixed with a few older finds) eucalyptus leaves, shells, feathers, a stone wheel, clay dolls arm and tiny cog (my favourites, from Elizabeth) seed pods and beach rope.

I've decided to do my collected treasures posts a little differently this year. I'll still be sharing our finds each month, but instead of putting them all together in one picture, I will be photographing them as we find them. This way I can fit in all the bits and bobs we find, plus its kinda fun to collect and put things in groups!

As always, please feel free to join in and show some of the treasures you've picked up when out and about. They don't have to be neat or in order, I think its just nice to get a record of them, to remember certain adventures or special gifts from the kids that would otherwise be forgotten. You can find more collections on my Pinterest board here! And my previous collections here!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! x

  1. You get better and better at this, they are such beautiful arrangements. Just showed my eight year old and he said, "Cool". Praise indeed. We will be looking for things on our next trip to the beach. CJ xx
