What a great weekend it's been. The Cats won the AFL Grand Final yesterday. It's been 44 years since they last won a premiership. They're the only team I've ever followed and I was too young to remember the win back in 1963.
Today the girls and I went to the Rotary Market. It's a great place to buy your fruit and vegetables and hunt for a bargain. I'm always on the lookout for tins, wooden boxes, baskets, buttons and anything else that I might find a use for in the near or distant future. Before we left home I thought, mmm, I'd love to find a red and white striped tin for Christmas.
And look what we found just as we were leaving and only $3. It's a Bester's Sweet tin. Does anyone remember these sweets? Thought the buttons were a pretty green and for a $1 does it matter if they're not used anytime soon? The linen tea towel belonged to mum.
I also found this small wooden box for $5. The name Peter Charles Horn.... (can't read the rest of the surname) 1964 has been written on the bottom so I was a little surprised to to open it and find the pretty pink satin finish. I know boys can like pink too. I'm not saying they can't.
Now I guess some of you are thinking 'what great bargains' and others will be wondering 'what was she thinking' but that's why its called Trash & Treasure.
