My Favorite ebay Win

(I'm linking this post to Rhoda's party over at Southern Hospitality: What's Your VERY FAVORITE Thrifty Find?? So glad you popped over to visit!!! Bella )

Ok, so I was having a photo artistic moment...can you guess what kind of flowers these are? Betcha can't!



And then, I spotted my little Italian lady trying to inch her way into the picture...is this not a face only a mother could love?



I won them on ebay several years ago, my favorite win ever! They always make me smile when I see them. They are technically salt and pepper shakers, but I have never been able to open them...so they are really useless, and unpurposeful and why in the world would anyone want them? Wait, before you answer that...I think she can hear you, do you really want to upset her?



Oh, the floosy-doozie, wispy flower...




...it's Broccoli!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I can't believe that's broccoli!! Just regular, plain old broccoli? Wow! And I love Mrs. Pepper...it's as if she's standing guard over you while you cook, making sure you adjust the seasoning to her taste. ;-)

Connie said...

Ya know what, I agree with ya, sweet chick! Something simple can make my heart sing.....like a spongeware bowl I bought at Macy's many years ago and protect fiercely for fear of breaking. Hah. But I love that big blue bowl. Now, the broccoli doesn't look too appealing in that state but put a little hollandaise sauce on it and voilĂ  you got my taste buds on overdrive, lovely lady!
Smoochies,
Conie

Broccoli?! This is how little I know about such things because I never would've guessed that. How interesting.

I love your salt and pepper shakers, even if they don't "shake" any more. How fun! -Julia
