This is a little 'treasure' found last week at our local antique shop.
Can anyone tell us what it is?
Seriously, we have no idea. :-b
Under the plug is a small area that holds something (I'm thinking ice) for whatever is in the bottle.
The area under the plug is not perforated.
We think it is quite the conversation piece.My guess is it would hold wine and the ice keeps it chilled. We were told it is around 100 years old but how the shop-keeper knew that beats me because she wasn't sure what the heck it was.
Here's another little treasure; the little crock that hangs in my window.
Last week it held pansies.
Linda...if you are reading this, can you tell me what this is called?
I met lots of gorgeous new kitty-clients today and will have a very busy weekend spoiling them.
I mentioned the other day that I was caring for a special cat this week and would be saying 'farewell' to her as she is soon moving with her family. That darling cat is fourteen year old Smudge. I have cared for her for ten years and will miss her so much. So, so much. This is the down-side to what I do.
I wish all the best to her and her family as they start their life in their new home. "Take care, dear Smudge. It was such a privilege being your cat-sitter." *sniff*
I miss her already.
I'm sure there will be many wonderful get-togethers as we celebrate Mother's Day.
Sounds like a great weekend ahead.
