I have found the perfect way to answer the questions I get when trying to describe my passion for micro fossils!

While out shopping yesterday, we hit a few favorite hobby/craft stores like A C Moore and Michael's. I found this neat little pocket watch designed to showcase tiny finds and bought a chain to match. Now I can keep it in the watch pocket on my jeans and easily show off a selection of micro fossils from Merritt Island matrix. :)

That's very cool Julianna! How will you pick the items to display from the hundreds you have?

I like it. It would be fun to have one with a working dial that turned backwards, going back in time.

Or arrange the fossils in the number positions according to age. If you can some wee rodent fossils you could build a Mickey in the middle. :)

Thanks, John :) I chose some of the 'larger' micros like a lizard scale and vert, and a mouse tooth, cotton rat tooth and a vole tooth. I placed 2 samples of anole jaw bits with teeth in the center. Oh, and 2 claws as they are really neat. There is a tiny phalanx bone in there as well. I wanted to use items that would look somewhat recognizable.

Never would of thought of that! Great idea!

Thanks darctooth :)

Now, that would be cool! :)

Thanks, Jeff. I can even change them out for different fossils when I get something new to show. :)

Thanks, Jeffrey. It just popped into my head when I saw those 'watches'.

Great idea. Nice thing about Micros....a pocket holds a LOT of fossils!

Thank you, Bob. Yup, Micros are sure portable!

Small treasures worn and displayed in ' timely fashion'. What a good idea!
