Suburban archeology

 One of the eccentric habits acquired over my years of digging in gardens has been to keep any items or objects I come across in the soil. The most common being decorated shards of pottery, matchbox cars, plastic war figures once placed in cereal boxes, lots of marbles, coins (Australian Pennies!), unidentified metal pieces, bits from dolls etc. I keep them all in an old metal tool box and occasionally rifle through them, eyeing them with wonder about their former life.

  1. I think it's a lovely idea Ian, maybe I'll start doing the same! Can't help thinking they'd make a great art project or mosaic of some kind. I do have one piece of pottery... somewhere.
