When I was in art school I once did a whole drawing assignment on things that I found lying on the ground. When I would go for a walk I would keep my eyes open for little treasures, things like metal scraps, coins, buttons, ect. I was mostly looking for man made stuff- a comment on how much stuff there was littering our streets yet I also found beauty in these tiny treasures....ah that was a fun assignment.
So when Country Girl suggested a new project that kinda went along with the same theme I just talked about I jumped at the idea. It was her hope that other bloggers would continue her idea of a nature-treasure table and pick up things that they found on their walks-finding beauty in nature and each person's surroundings. The whole idea behind the nature-treasure table is that it is a form of show and tell, yes just like the show and tell that we used to do in kindergarden. She pointed out that there should be some interesting finds...some different if you live in the city, some different if you live in the countryside.
So here we go, my first nature-treasure table:
- a thistle
- some tiny pinecones on a branch
- a stick
- a piece of bamboo
- a large pinecone
- a large leaf
- some seed pods
- a red ribbon with a bell attached
- a rusty old paperclip
I hope you enjoy these little treasures that I found. Maybe you'll join in and show us what you found on your next walk?
