Tasmanian Timbers

Whilst I was in my homeland of Tasmania just recently, I decided to bring back my own little piece of Tasmania. This ruler is simply divine and has a little samples of all Tassies prominent gorgeous timbers:Tea Tree, Celery Top Pine, Eucalyptus, Blackwood, Sassafras, King Billy Pine, Huon Pine and Myrtle.

These rulers have been produced my two local brothers (from the Huon region) for many many years.
Let's hope for many years to come!

If you are heading to Tassie at any time, make sure to head down to the Salamanca precinct on the docks. I purchased this ruler (plus a GORGEOUS Blackwood chopping board) from the lovely Val Moehrke from Gallery 77 & the Ringrove Collection.

Beautiful ruler indeed. I stock Tasmanian Oak knitting needles which are handmade & divine. Something very special about the wood industry down there. Love Posie
