It's not very often I make anything with a masculine look to it but I wanted to use a few bits and bobs from a little box of "treasures" I've had since my dad died, nearly 10yrs ago. The little "treasures" are just old buttons, coins and some medals my dad had in a little wooden box. I used to love rooting through this box when I was younger, I haven't changed much as I still love to rummage through "old tat" as some people call it...lol!
I started with a cheap wooden framed mirror I bought about 5yrs ago from that Swedish store....you know!
Covered it with some old dictionary pages, stamped some images and added my bits of treasure to it.
