Found Treasures of Life

As a young boy my husband would look for lost treasures. If they were in the furniture, under the tree, tucked away in the corners of the house, or hidden to the most unusual places, they would become his treasure! I nicknamed him PACKY, because his pockets still carry little treasures now and again.

This is your time to share with your Bookmooch friends What treasures you have found, and add them to the journal is a picture, story, poem, or even glued to the pages.

All I ask is to not to change anyone’s work, or write over it, or cover it up. Keep within the two week time limit, and then post it to have some one else mooch it.

When this journal is full, please send it back to: Debbie Hoggan (Bookmooch ID: hogganclan)

The Found Objects Journal

All my life, i’ve been fascinated by objects I’ve found in all kinds of places, indoors and outdoors. hidden in old furniture, lying on the sidewalk, tucked away in a book, hidden behind pictures in old frames, left in closets by previous residents, lost in the corner of a basement, found in school desks. I’ve collected these odd bits of history all my life and often wonder what kind of things others have found.

I want you to be as creative as you’d like, adding found treasures, altering the existing blank pages in the book with your own creative art, creating cut-out niches to hide a found treasure in and so on. Add objects on one page or two or go wild, adding them on pages throughout the book for others to work around, or add them to pages that already have objects pasted.
