A winning small treasure! (and a few of my own)

Many thanks to all who participated in the Little Elliot BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY! People were asked to share what their favorite small treasure is. Our winner, chosen at random, is Marcilia Loubach Tartaglia of Littleton, Mass. She wrote:

“My favorite small treasure is my childhood stuffed blue bunny I used to carry around everywhere with me.
