Tuesday Treasure

Tuesdays is when I join Melody in sharing about a Treasure.

This week I have a bowl:

... quite unusual....  

....I found it in an Op shop ....

..... and couldn't leave it there....

..... all the way around it has different pictures .....

.... georgeous gecko ......



.... roo in the grassland .....


 .... Giddy Goanna ...... with snake and turtles and other bugz

 

... fabulous frogs ........ there's butterflies inprinted on this side...


...... Kute Koala ...... I love the detail with the leaves and gumnuts....


........ even the underneath is amazing .....


 A lovely piece of Australiana

~ so full of detail and texture ~

~ I never showed the inside - that is silky smooth ~

Sometimes is surprises me what people throw out... but I'm glad this one did.....

Now I'm off HERE to see what other treasures I can look in on........

What an interesting piece! If I had seen it in an op shop it would have come home with me for sure.

That is absolutely incredible! A treasure indeed! I can't get over all the detail on one piece. A work of art for sure!

Oh my gosh this is so fabulous - what a lucky find! I have a brother-in-law who creates bowls out of wood, and I know the work that goes into them. This is just wonderful.

This is a beautiful piece. I would grab it too if I saw it somewhere. Then I would wonder what to do with it. (I'm not great at decorating.)
