I spy - treasure bottles!

Vaughan and I made these "treasure bottles" in 2008.  It was cheap entertainment - recycled bottles filled with all kinds of oddments that we found around the house. 

I can remember finding leftover earrings/beads for weeks afterward, caught in the folds of our camping chairs!

I photographed the contents and made up a double-sided card for each bottle, which I then laminated for durability.  They are still going strong! 

The bottles are quite well-traveled as they have come away with us on a number of long trips.  (One of Vaughan's lizard bags is just the right size to hold both bottles and cards - with room in the pocket for a couple of whiteboard markers, to tick off found items).
