Snapshot Sunday:Daisy Daisy give me your answer do!



Daisy seating on the foreshore near Hobart Tasmania

On a walk along the foreshore on one of my many outings I did with Phillip and the dogs we came across this old daisy bench. I’ve noticed walking around places like Glenorchy and Moonah there are quite a few old tiled benches in all sorts of colours and odd shapes. I’ve decided to try to get pictures of them because who knows what genius will try to get rid of them. Suddenly they will be deemed dangerous or some other stupid thing. Well I love the art of years ago and this is a great example of stuff straight out of the fifties or sixties.I’m hoping someone will wise up and retile it before more tiles lift and fall off. There were two or more of these but they were a bit too far apart to get them in the same shot. It’s amazing they have lasted so many years as have the other benches and things on Main Road Moonah.



I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
