Display boards

A few years ago I went on a special trip to the White Desert of Egypt. One of my plans is to post the photos on my blog, but today I want to share something else with you. On that particular trip I found many crystals, stones and pieces of what looks like melted iron.

Many years I displayed these little treasures as in the picture above, loosely arranged in the window sill.

I have been looking for years for a proper display, something flat with sections, something like an antique letter box from a print shop.

And last Saturday I found just the thing by happenstance (I just love that old fashioned word) in a pop-up store around the corner of my house.

Apparently it's from Bali and the boards look like they had a life before this one. I asked the shop keeper and he advised me to check out the website of doing Goods, but it does not seem to work yet. Maybe the boards were used in a shop for jewelry or coins? Who knows, I love them and I think the little legs are adorable.
