Mixed Media Monday

This weeks challenge theme is: Memories~
I call this Virginia~I used a lid off of an old box from the 1900's as the base to build upon. I added vintage crepe paper, a vintage corsage, a clock face from an old coo-coo clock, lace, an old key tied on with a ribbon, a pearl necklace, a photo transferred onto tape... a piece of muslin that I wrote on with a brown fine tip sharpie... and of course a four leaf clover.
