A little box of eyes.

I am in the middle of completing some new collections: one is inspired by Miss Haversham, a character from Charles Dickens' novel 'Great Expectations', the other is created around things that were literally 'found'. I always pick up interesting items that I find dropped in the street, I have odd ear-rings, broken chains' bracelets, and a collection of various 'hearts' that have obviously fallen off pendants and bracelets. I have decided to build a crocheted collection of objects combining these 'lost' hearts. I am at a loss as to a title at the moment; I am thinking maybe 'lost and found' or 'broken hearts' but these seem a little cliched, any contributions to a witty title would be much appreciated. The title of this post 'a little box of eyes' comes from my partner finding a box of 'stuff' that is in my horde, it is a little plastic container full of 'googly' animal eyes, on picking it up Terry declared 'oh look, 'a little box of eyes' !!! I just loved the sound of it!!!!
