I am beginning to realise why this is called Tuesdays treasures,
The more I look the more I find
these items are simple, not valuable in the dollar sense but mean the world to me
They are basic sherry glassess that belonged to my grand mother - or Nanny as I used to call her.
Nanny was quite a character and worked for many years as a cook on shearing stations in the north of South Australia. Most of these places were quite remote in the Northern Flinders ranges and we never had the chance to visit them. But one school holidays I can remember staying in the shearers quarters at a place called Booborowie, just north of the Clare Valley - a beautiful wine region of South Australia.
We had fun watching the shearers, rounding up sheep with the dog - my sister and I sitting in the back of the ute with mesh on our faces to keep out the red dust.
Nanny gave me these sherry glasses just a few weeks before she passed away, and its the only thing I still have that belonged to her - so they are truly a treasure to me.
