The Moving Finds

 My studio has moved and everything is almost unpacked.  It has been a hectic summer.  I was so worried that I would lose something.  Happily, I found this gift from a friend.  I put it somewhere "safe" after Christmas because it was so delicate.  I found it again during the move...safely tucked into a vintage findings box.
 I found so many interesting things during the pack up and unpack that I'll be busy creating for months!
Hope you had a great weekend.
