Vintage Wood Bird Tray

I was so excited to find this tray at the Lawrenceburg flea market in Indiana a couple weekends ago.  It is so me! 

When I first picked it up and was considering buying it, I suddenly saw the moon hiding in the tray (you might have to click the image to see it better).  That totally convinced me - it is so subtle and beautiful the way it has worn down to the wood in places to make it look like clouds in front of the moon.  It makes me wonder if it was that way when it was brand new.  Intentional of not, it is lovely and I love the overall Asian flair and the scant brush strokes near the bottom.  It is amazing what treausres you can find at the flea market for less than five dollars!
