This is the final post for the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt, which ends on March 31.
It is a glass bottle that has a round glass ball at the top which is pushed in to open the bottle; the neck of the bottle is shaped so that it holds the glass ball in place:

I was able to find a picture for each prompt, this time. But, I also took some pictures for the alternatives, too:
Alt A: In pieces - Dancer wanted to participate, too!

My previous posts can be found here (December), (January), (February). I might do a single final selection post, too, to have everything in one place.
Thank you, Eileen, for hosting the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt.
I love your interpretations of the prompts (and glad Dancer participated)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Anne. Dancer says it was hard work, but, he tried his best! :DDelete
Great choices! My treasured items are also those irreplaceable things with people's handwriting in.ReplyDelete
What great measuring cups!
Thank you, Lady Ella. I think I should make one or two recipes my mother had written down - maybe something my daughter might like to do, too. :)Delete
That was a fun and varied selection. I don't quite understand the glass bottle, but I am fascinated by it.ReplyDelete
Thank you, June. It is an unusual looking bottle, isn't it?Delete
Excellent finds. I like your measuring ducks. Seems we both had help in one way or another with our little kitty friends to make or find elements for the WPSH.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mary-Lou. I saw your photo of the kitty's contribution on your post! Too funny! :DDelete
Great job Bless. I like Dancer's art lol!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Martha! :)Delete
Great photos but Dancer's "torn paper towel art" sounds like an excuse for wanton vandalism!ReplyDelete
My arm is only a little sore today and I slept late and am a bit tired but no more than usual. Puttering is the order of the day!
He loves to tear paper towels and tissues! :DDelete
I'm so glad to hear that your side effects are only a sore arm. Yes, please do take it easy for a couple of days. I took a picture of the first rose, today, and thought of you. Will be posting it, soon.
I like your nested measuring cups. They look quite delicate and I'm sure I'd have snapped the necks by now!ReplyDelete
Torn Paper Towel Art is a winner!
Thanks for joining in with the hunt Bless x
The nesting measuring cups are cute, aren't they? I bought a second set to give as a gift, but, I think I still have them!Delete
Ha, ha, Dancer says thank you!
Thank you for hosting the hunt, Eileen. I enjoyed participating in it.
Nice finds, Bless. I've never seen a bottle like the one in #4.ReplyDelete
I too have a very similar photo for "Black & White". :)
Thank you, Nil. I saw your photo for Black and White - great minds think alike? :DDelete
Oh I just love old family recipe books; that one must be such a treasure for you.ReplyDelete
It is, Joanne. Thank you for visiting and commenting. :)Delete
I enjoyed these prompts. Do you use the cute little duck measuring cups or are they mostly for decoration?ReplyDelete
The recipe book of your mothers is wonderful.
Dancer! How avant garde!
I do use the duck measuring cups from time to time - I keep them in an old plastic mixing bowl in which I keep a lot of my baking items such as the box of baking soda, can of baking powder, cup cake liners, some recipe cards, and a set of measuring spoons. There is another set of measuring cups in a drawer, as well, but, they are plain round white ones. :)Delete
