Treasure Hunting!

Gosh I love hunting for treasures! I think if I lived in another era, I'd be a friendly pirate, searching the sea for chests filled with gold!

Yesterday I went to a fabulous junk shop...I was the only customer in the store and I started chatting with the owner. I asked if he had any watch crystals and he jumped up and told me to follow him into the back room where he showed me this fabulous "treasure chest. I have wanted one of these chests...empty...for ages but they always cost a hundred bucks or more and I just can't justify it! He started opening the drawers to reveal hundreds of little ladies watch by heart started beating a little faster! I asked him what he wanted for it...I won't say what I paid, but it was much less than the empty ones I've seen...and I told him I'd take it! I didn't even dicker which is out of the ordinary for me...I always love a friendly back and forth. So...I bought it. I brought it home and now it sits with my other treasures, waiting for my muse to work it's magic! Until then, I shall open those drawers and giggle just a little!
