No, this cute little silver bird is not the gift I'm talking about! This little bird is just so cute that I just had to share him! ^_^ I like the idea of getting 'function' and 'cute' in the same item...even if I don't have any bottles that I would use it on! LOL...In fact, are there any real bottles left in the world?!! ^_^
There may not be any real bottles left in the world, but there are pens and real pencils!....somewhere!! ^_^ And I found out, while I was doing a web search yesterday, that the gift I was just given by a girlfriend just might be an old pen and pencil case!...
Isn't it cute?!! :-) I love it!! :-) ... But I'm a little afraid to use it too much, because I'm not sure if it's valuable or not...It's wooden, with little dots, and a ribbon design with the name B.B. Gidley inside of it. It also has something that looks like I love N.Y. on the front...or something to that effect...(I can't completely make it out).
When you turn it on it's side...LOOK!!! :-) ...
...Flowers!! :-) ... The flowers is probably the reason my girlfriend gave it to me! :-) ...CUTE!!!
And on both ends of it is the date 1905...
Help, somebody!!...Do you know anything about my little case?!...Here's some more clues...The top middle piece, with the name, slides off...
...It has what looks like an ink well at the end...to hold...Oh, I don't know...INK maybe! ^_^
...and it has all kinds of compartments when you twist and turn it!...
The compartments don't have pens and pencils in them though. They have metal crochet hooks...the kind you do tiny needlework with...like my boutonnieres! :-)
AND...there's also two measuring sticks and some crochet hooks that look like they're made out of bone or ivory! They have a lot of turning-tool design work on them. But I couldn't really find anything about them online...probably because I don't know what I'm looking for!! ^_^
One of the measuring rulers is the slide piece under the bottom of the box...
Oh Yeah!...when you slide the top piece, with the name, out...you find that it's TWO pieces put together...
...One end says "Notes"...When you flip it over to the other side...WOW!!...
...There's a list of the 'Kings and Queens of England, from William the Conqueror to Edward the Seventh.'...
So....do you know anything about it?!...If so, please leave me a comment. I'm completely at a loss, but I would really like to know what I have...and if my going in and out of it for different size needles to crochet with is gonna de-value it! O_O
Okay...moving on!...Tomorrow I have some really cute items to share with you that I found on Etsy!...and I have some personal news to share too! :-) ... That's kind of redundant to say, isn't it. Everything I talk about here is personal!! ^_^ So, let's just say.....it's NEW personal! LOL...See you tomorrow!...Have a good Monday!! :-)
Ode To Flowers
Ode to all loved flowers,
whatever color, shape or form.
You enthrall with sheer delight!
At other times, make my heart warm.
Whether photographed or made,
growing tall out in the yard;
In a vase or porch-side planter,
or just naturally unmarred;
Please know you always make me smile,
and lift my mood when I am down.
The world would be a different place
without a lot of you around!
