Wooden finds

February 19, 2013


These lovely wooden things were found at our local op shop last week.  We gave them a good scrub with soapy water, lay them out to dry in the sun, then loved them up with some beeswax.

I fell in love with this little truck the moment I saw it.  To be honest my heart skipped a beat, and I was really hoping it wouldn't be too pricey.  Luckily for us, both items were really inexpensive.  Yay!

"Twuck" passes the play test with our little girl, however, the bowl/box is her favourite.  It sits in pride of place on her "special shelf" and is currently housing a collection of her felted wool balls, although the contents could change at a moment's notice :)

  1. Great finds. Love the colours - is it rimu do you think? Beeswax is perfect for bringing wood to life again.
