Mermaid's Treasure Mini Houses

A mermaid's cumulation is the same as your or mine; items that have meaning in one way or another, objects that are beautiful or intriguing or curious. We surround ourselves with personal treasures for enjoyment, reminders of the past, knowledge of the unknown, and sometimes just for the quest of collecting. I believe this particular mermaid is entertained with her queer shipwreck findings and takes great pride in her bounty.



She has amassed an impressive collection of mostly ladies' things such as a Victorian Dressing Table Set, perfume bottles, photos, and lace,





silverware and a bowl, a passport, and book,




utensils, tchotchkes, a child's ball, and an image of a captivating young mistress with a mysterious history.







Capturing a mermaid's treasure was a wondrous delight! It is all about Beneath the Sea at Alpha Stamps this month, and what fun it is! You can go HERE to see the supply list all in one place. Now to discover a monocled octopus...
