Now that's a different post. My sister gave her kids money boxes for Christmas that you have to smash to get to the money once it's full. Seems a shame for something pretty but does stop pilfering.
'Twas either this post, or another I am working up about Fort Denison. I went with frivolity for once ...
Hi Julie - Hope you had a great Christmas & New Year. Just catching up on some of you past posts. This little money box is so cute. I love your photos of Lamington Park, not sure I would get that close to the trap door spider hole though!! I especially liked the shots of the fungi.
Where's the tuppence for the tax man ?Times have changed since that poem was written ..
for my two bob's worth, I hope there is a hole in the bottom to get the cash ou.
I did not check that ... but I would hate to see it smashed to get out the measly coins!!
Lovely money box. Love the rhyme, we had a dog called tuppence when I was nobbut a lad.
Sweet little money bank.
A bit of doggerel that obviously came before the day of personal financial planners.
I remember my mum singing that to me. Frivolity is good.
I haven't heard that before.I'm glad I didn't live with old money - seems complicated (I mean apart from the 2+2+2=6 of the rhyme).Why is it 6"d"?And how many 6ds in a shilling?I don't even know what a shilling is.But it's a nice word.
thanks for the smile.
So fabulous. I want one. :Love the poem, too.
