"Mother" Antique Assemblage

Set in a rusted hinged tin box, this ode to a Mother consists of a soldered tintype, pages from a vintage book, starfish, rhinestone button, antique key, old lace, and family diary excerpts. The front is made up of a snip from a vintage novel book cover and more shells.  Love these shells!
