Better late than never...Happy new Year treasures at the WAC

As the saying goes.....better late than never...so I will begin this post with a big Happy New Year wish to everyone and also a big thank -you for all your continued support and kindness particularly late last year. After a longer than expected break from the computer I am so looking forward to catching up with everyone in the wonderful blogging world and reading what you have all been up to.
And although a break has been had from blogging we are excited to have still been kept busy by our spaces at the WAC and Cottage Garden and the new treasures we have uncovered, fun fun!!! 
Don't you just LOVE this long bench ? I know I do... 
It originally came from a science lab at the University of Queensland. The photo really doesn't show off just how long it is. But perhaps if you take into account that the "thing" on top of it is a 1960's twirly metal day bed than that will better help put it in perspective. I love the day bed too. If I had a larger, flatter garden I think it would be perfect for the lounging I plan to do more of this year. To be honest I don't think I have ever had a nicer day bed. Granted it does need restoration but don't you just think it, like the bench, is a diamond in the rough? 
But the treasures, to my eye at least, don't end there, check out this locker below.
Is it just me or does anyone else find it super sexy ? It is super heavy, because it is metal and is one of two I have. Because of this chaps weight and the length of the work bench, I got a couple of strong removal guys to move them to the WAC for me....which was HEAVEN...just heaven..... I plan to do more watching and directing and less lifting this year...I cannot describe the joy in watching two big guys pick these treasures up like they weigh nothing. 

So that is a peek at one of our spaces at the WAC. I hope 2012 has started well for everyone.
