Italian Treasure

Last weekend I went treasure hunting. The yard sales were scarce, partly due to a rainy forecast, I'm sure... but I found something fun anyway...

A Florence Italy Travel Book

Cost: 10 cents

With a quick perusal of the pages inside, I discovered some gorgeous pictures and decided it had potential for a Treasure Hunt creation, so I dug deep into my pocket and found a dime. I handed it to the lady having the yard sale, knowing it was money well spent.

When I was ready to start creating, I searched for the perfect picture inside the book. I found it. The village scene would make a perfect backdrop for the bicycle image I planned to use.

Awwww... the sights of Italy are gorgeous. I just wish I could smell the tasty aroma of spaghetti simmering on the stove, too.
