I'm not much of a collector of things, mostly of ideas and projects.
I like my things to be functional mostly and not things to just sit and look pretty - things I have to dust! I like my functional things to be beautiful too.
But sometimes collections just happen.
This collection , which started out with finding a bird's nest and then a feather, a jaw bone. Then my son added a tooth fossil (which came from a nature show) and an arrowhead and then I added a raku pot a friend had made for me. The bird & nest and swan raku tea lights I had made seemed to belong there too. And then the stone bird piece from a burned out building my husband found. I noticed when I took this photo, the little snake skin had gone missing - I blame the cats!
These things are a source of inspiration and I guess a little dusting.... well, it must be done.
