One (WO)Man's Treasures ...

(click image for original event details)

How does one decide which is trash and which is treasure?

I'm fairly certain it's all a matter of perspective ... so, these are the treasures that I chose:

Stump Pass State Park (FL) Part 1
(Click above for original blog post dated 2.10.08)

Soul Journal - Days 7, 8 & 9 ... Plus a Charmed Sneak Peak

(Click above for original blog post dated 9.04.08)

... and no, this one is not a reference to cranes ...

&
An Earlier Retrospective ... of sorts

(Click above for original blog post dated 11.11.08)

Thank you for stopping by to see what I unearthed! I hope you enjoyed your visit.

I'm off to do some treasure hunting myself ... if you happen to see the girl with the cheesy ear-to-ear grin looking a bit giddy it's probably me. :)

A special note of thanks to Seth for his terrific idea!!

it opened up a whole 'nother journey

I think either I'm having technical difficulties, or both the second and third pics link to the same post?

Anyway, I LOVE those nature photos. And you know that one of those charms holds a special place in my collection.

great treasures! Thanks

Jill Zaheer said...

Well, I see I've commented a little differently- leaving comments for you on your actual reposts- but to summarize all- great pics- love your heron, the blues of the water, your turtle and your soul journal- the process, colors and yes- the word art included- which I wouldn't have noticed at first unless you mentioned it- so thank you for that as well!
