Nowt could I find

wooden pear 2
My parents were visiting family in Tasmania last weekend, and Dad picked this wooden pear for me at Salamanca Place Markets. It's made from Tasmanian Huon Pine, by David Jackson.

It is perfect. I've seen wooden pears before but not one in this mini size, on the same scale as my mini felted pears. I'm sure it will be sneaking into more of my photos in future.

Speaking of sneaking, watch out for sneaking TSSs wanting to steal it away to add to her collection...

The wooden pear is beautiful. It looks like a good pairing (oops, I'm not usually punny!) with your felted one.

I have a Huon pine wide window sill inside the kitchen window. It is so lovely, but the pear, well you can really feel it and smell the wood. It's a good gift!!!

That's so beautiful! I have an apple bought at Salamanca Place (not the markets) a long time ago.
