I find another treasure...


an old wooden box,




containing tubes of paint




that used to belong to my grandmother



many years ago.

Find any treasures today?

My word!!!!what a find!!!!! Where did you find it Carole? And how old do you reckon it is? Can you salvage the box? The paints are probably long gone.

Glenys, I don't have any contact details for you, so I can't reply to your comment!

I'm sure you'll find a way of recycling that box Carole. What treasure and sentimental value I'm sure.

Those tubes of paint would make an interesting assemblage- nestled in cheescloth like precious objects?

A great find!

What a wonderful treasure and what a wonderful heritage too. Creativity is in your genes.
