Another Challenge - Scavenger Hunt

It's been a couple of years but the first challenge that I participated in was called a Scavenger List.   We didn't get the items in the mail, but we got a list of things we could use.   

We were given a list of 25 things that could be used and we had to use 20 of them. In addition to posting the picture of our new mini scene, we had to post the list of items used and how we used them (if not obvious). When I first started this I drew a total blank. Didn't have an idea of what I would do, but finally got a great suggestion and it just sort of built itself. A fellow miniaturist suggested I lay out all the items and then pick 20 of them. It went from nearly impossible to finished very quickly.
List of items

1- 4 paper clips - Decorative under window 2- 2 cotton balls - snow on ground and over window awning 3- 1 spool of thread, with or without thread on it - NOT USED
