Antique snails

Sunday morning, Camberwell Market, just another box of odds & ends. A gentle shake of this match box felt oddly light. Inside I discovered nine snails shells collected from Lord Howe island in 1928, collected by 'Stone', according to the inked tag. Antique snails! Vintage gastropods! In order not to draw attention to my stupendous scientific find, I nonchalantly offered the seller 20 cents. This event is now referred to as The Great Snail Swindle.

2010 - Welcoming the Oneders

A splendid hard rubbish find as the new decade hovers and beckons. May yours be full of delights and treasures, or at least be recyclable.
