It is strange the little things which become mementos of special times. When we are somewhere new, somewhere strange, the everyday becomes curious.
I collected these driftwood sticks yesterday on the beach – they would make great toggles for bulky yarn cardigan or shawl pins. I wonder if Australian customs would agree with me.? All I can do is bag them and declare them.
I am even saving all the yarn ball bands I buy. They are destined for transformation into bookmarks, which I never seem to have enough of and always end up using things like a handy coaster or shopping receipt. Not particularly classy eh!
All our train tickets are being saved. I am not sure why yet but they look so lovely. Their orange stripes are like tiny Penguin books. Any thoughts dear reader, on what I do with them? What have you found yourself saving from your adventures?
