A Safe Place for Their Treasures
I asked my daughters to keep an eye out for a small curio cabinet or some type of display case for Sophia and Cohen to keep their found treasures in. I knew they would eventually find something but was very surprised when only a few days after mentioning it they brought in this grand little display case. Marian found it for an unbelievably low price as one of the side pieces of glass was out and the remaining side piece had a small corner chip. Margaret took the side glass we had to a glass shop and
had 2 new side pieces cut for $7.00.
The children were very excited to put their treasures in the cabinet.
Sophia made a display label like the ones she has seen in museums and placed in on the door.
She has used an identification label large enough to add identifiers to as items are placed on display.
The paper reads as follows: Nest and butterfly and eggs, bones, feathers, stones Love, Sophia and Cohen
I found the nest after the babies had fledged and it was abandoned. It was built in the roll of a canopy that is above our patio doors.
