Several years ago my wife created a Christmas centerpiece out of found object to show our daughter that you could decorate a table for almost no money. Among other things, she spray painted some leaves with silver paint. Leaves are of course those items of junk that you have to rake up and haul away. They became her treasures. When Christmas was over, the leaves became extra junk, but my wife could not throw them away, so she put them in a glass bowl where they have remained until today. I found them sitting in that bowl yesterday. There was nice light falling on the bowl, so I photographed them and made them my treasures.
