Tiny Treasures Tray

I am spending more time on flickr mostly because I am spending more time with my camera. I post something and catch a glimpse of something someone else did. I get inspired, take more pictures, post some...well, you can see how quickly this becomes self-perpetuating. This little collage was going to go to the Creative Challenge Group for the theme of 'Good To Be A Girl'. I was disappointed to find the theme had already been changed. At the same time, however, I found another group: Tiny Treasures. There were several tiny things in the arrangement, so I figured it qualified. Close to the little ladybug is a 'point' (it says '1 POINT' on it) It is a ration point that was used during the Great Depression. I found it inside the small leather pouch in the lower right corner. The oval baby picture is of Mom; the reverse side of which is a mirror.
Next to the oval are tiny embroidered flowers, once used as decorations on a garment. The ribbon came in an order of note cards from Soul Aperture's Etsy shop. It is, by comparison, rather new, but it fit so well. The flickr version of these Tiny Treasures has little notes that tell more of the stories on this tray. Your quite welcome to pop over there to visit. Or you might like to visit Simply Hue's post of her favorites from the past week's challenge: "In A Row". My row of sailboats made it to the set. Like the 'ink' in this post, I'm tickled pink!
