Treasure Bag

Kylie has a bag of treasures. It's a little 4" x 5" soft, black, drawstring bag. Kylie likes picking out each day what she considers a treasure and putting it in her bag.

Today's treasures are:
  • a spinning top decorated with the stars from the Dora the Explorer show. This is from the goodie bag from her friend Amelia's birthday party.
  • baby doll and teddy bear from the dollhouse her Nana gave her.
  • a stone giraffe from her Grandpa.
  • a hard plastic red flower.
  • a purple ring
  • a cloth "love" disk from her Grandpa. This actually is a towel that will expand when it gets in water. My mom gave Kylie one a while back. Kylie freaked out when it expanded; she preferred the original shape. So when I told Kylie what this was like that towel, she quickly put it in her bag and told me to leave it alone.

    I love that she has these little touchstones that bring her joy.

    I finished my Shutterfly book of my two days in DC with my Dad. If you are interested, you can view it here.

    I love the treasure bag idea! (and I love your photos too!)

    BTW; I know you are a yarn lover. A friend of a friend (who's last name happens to be Friend - LOL) and her partner own a sheep farm in MN ("organic" farming methods) and have some really cool yarn up for sale on their blog.
