AlphabeThursday - X marks the spot


Not too many words begin with the letter X, so this week's AlphabeThursday will be interesting to see what people pick.   I like the letter X all by itself.


The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Xs, is X marks the spot.






A friend gave me a box of magazines a month ago, so I decided to look for a designer chest to put under my X, like a treasure.  And wouldn't you know it - I found one in House Beautiful!  The trunk I found reminds me of luggage that would have been taken on a ocean voyage, at the beginning of the century.  The 20th century!





I wasn't sure if it would fit on my pages, but it did.




And I was going to draw a big X across the page, when I remembered a stamp I had started a few weeks ago.  So I finished my carving of a pencil and used that straight line, over and over again, to make an X.


What would be in your treasure chest?


To visit other Letter X posts this week, 
come to Ms. Jenny's blog, ...off on my tangent...

Not only do you have a big x going across your page, but your clock face has Roman numerals pictured - more xs. Good post!

Cool idea. And I would keep books in my treasure chest, too. And family history stuff. And the little box I keep all my favorite little notes people in.

Nicely done. I'd end up with trinkets more than treasures....stuff I have no where else to store but things I'm not quite ready to get rid of. Thanx♫♪

Rose said...

Fun! I love the little clock. Honestly I would want a treasure chest full of money. Students loans and a mortgage...

Ha! Ha, I already have a few treasure boxes! Well treasures to me anyway, and just brought one down the other day, with old cards, letters and photos! I like your photos and the X marks the spot is so Xtra-cool!

Very fun - eXtremely creative, too!

That turned out great! I'd want extra time and money in a treasure chest so I had more time to create!

X post here is x-ceptionally creative! You are so sweet and talented. Thank you for the share. Have a great weekend!

Splendid Little Stars said...

Oh! That's totally fun! Using the pencil stamp is quite creative!
I'd wish for a treasure chest full of toys--craft supplies! (Yes, I know. Money would be more practical.)

PS: Judie referenced your comment on my blog.
