My maternal grandmother was a very talented lady. She made beautiful quilts in the 30's click,  click and she was a master at arranging flowers and dried flowers.  These were some little place cards she made for the fair well over 40 years ago and are sadly falling apart.  How she cut an acorn crown in half without breaking it to bits is beyond me and then she had the imagination to take all these little bits, pine needles and stickers and put them together into a miniature  floral arrangement and glue it together.  I remember gluing peanut shells together to make a giraffe with her and gluing corn and other seeds into a rooster mosaic. She could keep me busy for hours. She also made some wonderful pinecone wreaths and Christmas trees, click that I am keeping forever. --Ann--

Aha! Now we know where your creative genes came from! I'd keep these forever, too.
