photo a Week....

Today's theme...."What am I" ? .....

I guess it could actually be animal, vegetable or mineral... or it could even be a shot of my face..  hahahah....that'd scare ya and you would never be able to guess what I was....  or, it could mean...I spy with my little eye...something that is ...erm.... smallish... silvery.... has little birdies..and.... guess what it is.....
















Well, it's something that us kids bought for our Mom when we just little... the type of thing we usually found for her.  Something cute... smallish and not very expensive.  All four of us had to agree on our purchase because we were pooling our meagre resources ... .. ... so sometimes it took a lot of looking. 















I think it actually has some silver in it...because it gets almost black ... then I scour it with silver cleaner...

That is a real cute set of salt and pepper shakers....great choice for the photo challenge.

I can relate....I remember when my four siblings and I used to pool our money together for gifts for Mum and Dad. It was serious but exciting business and yes, sometimes final decisions took a while ~ :)

Nice! At first I was guessing a napkin ring.

Me too ! Thought at first it was a napkin holder. It is so beautiful ! And typical kids. It just took me back many years ago, when my sister and I went shopping Christmas gift for our mother.

What is it ? The little something in your bookcase ? It`s so little and tiny and very beautiful ! Did you make it, Vee ? This little babydoll ?

It´s so cute! I would have never guessed it was a salt and pepper shaker, until I saw the last picture. Mom must have been so proud of her kids when she received this lovely gift. Hugs ...
