The value of scrap

How could I throw this stuff out?  A collection marquetry and veneer scraps I have saved for years has now been incorporated into a collection of trinket boxes.  I particularly like the little marquetry detail I saved from a broken down wardrobe.  Some one building this wardrobe between the wars came up with this beautiful foliage design and I am proud to have saved it.
