Tuesday treasures + a day at the football.

I missed out on sharing a treasure last week as it was so busy, but with a long weekend in Adelaide this weekend I have had some time to think about what treasures to share and take some photos.

This week I am showing  a new treasure to me, of an old item.  I found this old tray and stand and fell in love with it.  It needs some TLC that I will give it, as the nails are popping out and its quite loose, so I will pop a few nails and some glue into it to strengthen it, and give it a coat of wood oil.  I love the rustic look of it and the cute little hearts cut out on the sides. 

I think it looks pretty with my pot of carnations on top.

We have just got home from a weekend away, it was a long weekend in Adelaide (labour day) and DH and I also took a much needed Tuesday off as I had won a weekend a way at a hotel in the Adelaide Hills (Stirling),  after a relaxing breakky - we headed to Hanhdorf a small little German town in the Adelaide Hills.  Its been years since we had last visited here, but it all seemed pretty much the same as it always had.  I didn't take any pictures, but I did purchase this cute little Portuguese rooster from a gift shop. I have seen these in peoples homes, and have always wanted one - he is supposed to bring me luck, I think he is adorable.  He is now part of my rooster family.
On Monday, we went to a football game at the beautiful Adelaide oval.  It was the state or origin between SA and Victoria.  but the slow down version (retired footballers.)  We had a corporate invite and were invited to the after game mingle with the players so I got to meet one of my hero's Mark Ricciuto or the Roo as us South Australians fondly call him.  Incidentally, South Australia won the game by one point.

  1. What a great tray, it should come up a treat. Love the rooster very cute.

  2. What fabulous treasures this week. The tray is fabulous and I love your rooster. I've got one too. I pat him every week and ask him to bring me the luck to win tattslotto - no luck so far I'm afraid.

  3. Great tray, beautiful flowers, interesting rooster! WOW what a fun post... and then to see you with some handsome men... Yippee ! lol :)
