New Treasures!

Remember the Treasure Hunt series I started last Spring? Well, there's more! I've added four new books, each a unique collection of 'treasures' sewn into a little book with map covers which more or less show where the contents were found. There are two from my South Island trip (Dunedin and Kaikoura maps) and two from the Kapiti Coast (Paekakariki and Kapiti Island on the front covers).

The treasures are pretty shells, interesting drift-twigs, tiny round pebbles or pumice, sea glass and such like. The kind of treasures that you find in your jacket pocket weeks or months after the beach holiday and they bring back memories of aimless saunters. The kind of treasures that children insist on bringing home and accumulating in shoeboxes.

These kinds of treasures often look most irresistable when wet, a quality I have tried to capture by sewing them into shiny clear vinyl pouches. These books are small enough to fit in your palm... or to send to someone surviving a Northern Hemisphere winter who needs a taste of New Zealand summer right now.

They are only $30 (inc p&p in NZ). Email me if you want one.
