Tuesdays treasures

Hubby and I love to travel, and we always pick up some trinket or another from another country, so I have decided to share one of these with you each month.

This month its from Thailand, where we have had the pleasure to visit on three occasions.  Both of these statues were purchased on our first trip to Phuket (followers of my blog would know I was there again last June), but this is from the trip to celebrate Hubby's 50th.




It does not show up well on the photograph, but the flute player is very gilded, and both statues are quite heavy cast metal of some type. The old man carrying the pails has so much detail on his face.

Why not share in the fun and show us your treasures, pop over to here and visit the lovely Melody to see who else is playing.
