something small

An unexpected find today. A tiny treasure, made by a friend. This little wooden card is just two inches high and one and a half inches wide, with a hand-cut and hand-painted lighthouse.


Made from wood offcuts, there's space inside to write a little message in pencil straight onto the wood. The two panels are bound together by twine, and it comes with a tiny brown envelope for posting. All for £2. Seems like a bargain to me. I have a couple more with different images, saved for presents. But they're secret (and very cute).

Have you found any tiny treasures lately?

Very unusual! The modern equivalent of an ancient Roman writing tablet.

Such a sweet find - it reminds me just a little of the work of Alfred Wallis ...

That's ingenious and beautiful!

Well I found a conker not long ago and that was glossy and fabulous. Also I pick up crow feathers when I see them, for their beauty.

But nothing like this.
