Lots and Lots of Junk Jewelry!
It all started when.....
....I found this lowly little train case tossed on the road on the morn of Garbage Pickup Day.
I lifted it up but it was heavy. So I opened it with the intentions to dump it out in a nearby trash can....
Ah... what it it I see? A broken mirror.. but what is it reflecting?
...To my surprise it was filled with jewelry (yaaay!) and broken glass (booo!)
I noticed that there was another small army green metal box w/in the case..... FILLED with even more junk jewels!

Lots and Lots of Junk Jewelry!


It all started when.....

Here's a tales of what happened to me today... on the next to shortest day of the year..... after the largest snow storm of this season. (Please follow along with the pictures)   ;)


(con't after pictures)

I quickly slammed the case closed and drove to my snow covered yard to investigate further....

I would LOVE to show you some of the individual pieces... alas, I can only post 5 pics BUT I posted them in my blog
