What do you do with old relics?

I found a few things at a moving sale last weekend. One old little relic I picked up that I just love is…

…a copper belt buckle that is still attached to a portion of it’s original leather belt.

I nailed it to a white painted piece of old wood. What else would you do with it?

Maybe I could tie it around a candle with rope?
Sometimes things catch my eye that may look like garbage or just strange to some people but this is real copper and real leather. Both elements together? It looks cool to me..I had to take it home.

Put it on a wooden tray with driftwood from Jenny Lake in Yellowstone and a topiary – they compliment each other because of the rustic, natural textures & style of each plus the staggered sizes.

Would you have over looked this at a tag sale?

I like to have my kids find out the value of some of my found treasures. They have fun searching on line to see how much something similar would sell for. Keeps them busy (for two minutes).

Thanks for stopping by to view my junk treasure. 🙂
