These treasures sit on the corner of my work desk.  I continue to add to them - a bit of this and a bit of that.  They entrance me and engage me. 

Occasionally I pull out some of my favorites, put them in a small dish and contemplate them.  What can I do with this one?  What early civilization does that one remind me of? How would I attach them so that are 'one' with the background?  These questions continue to spin within my head.

Will I really and truly choose one, or two or three to put into an as yet designed stitchery or will my 'stash' continue to grow with abandon?  Hmmm... 

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." - Thornton Wilder


  1. I have one, or two...OKAY..a few just like it. The thing is, if an item is "dish" worthy, its something I truly love or has some sentimental value and I will only use them on projects I intend to keep.

    Looking at them and letting your thoughts about them wander is one of my forms of meditation.

    ...and of course...

    ...one can NEVER have too many :-)

  3. Inspiration galore, that's certain!

  4. Now that's a treasure trove of possibilities!

    I bought more beads yesterday. I stood in the shop and asked myself the same question I always ask myself in that situation: do I really need MORE beads???

    No. But I think my stash will continue to "grow with abandon." Perhaps we should all form a club?!

  5. They are beautiful and inspiring just sitting in the lovely dish...that, to me, is great decorating :-)

  6. Lovely! Things and thoughts. they are deep thoughts but not tiring because they drive themselves. Meditation for certain!

  7. They're beautiful and they give you pleasure - job done!
