Clare's Tuesday Treasures
I was born in England and emigrated to Australia in 1963 on the SS Arcadia. This dear, sweet, funny, little clock in the shape of a donkey was purchased for me from the shop on the boat. Unfortunately he no longer works, but when he did his eyes moved back and forth as he ticked.
I've always loved donkeys and remember my joy when riding a donkey along the sand when on holidays at the sea-side.
My beautiful friend Rachelle has a new little donkey who has joined her other donkeys, Kit Kat and Olive, and I'm going to visit them on Friday.
Another lovely friend, Rosalie, taught me donkeys love peppermints and adore having inside their ears scratched. You do get donkey ear-wax on your fingers, but they go into a donkey-bliss-state.
Don't forget to pop over to Clare's blog, Clare's Craftroom, to see lots of other Tuesday Treasures.
