odd item

Christy Hydeck is celebrating that she has been published in a collage calendar. On her blog she has asked us to answer a question. I thought I would answer the question on my blog with an image because I thought it was fascinating.




“What is the most odd item within your reach right now?”



Well, it is a tiny metal box with a tiny flywheel from a watch. Sometimes you don't stop to think about the fascinating little objects that a there right next to you.




Isn't it just the most precious little thing in the world?! It is hard to see from the image but there is the finest little wire coil in the centre. The entire metal box is about an inch long. Anyway, marvel at this little wonder of a mechanism, and enjoy the rest of your day!

Funny, I chose to answer that question too. And I was equally astonished to find that I did, in fact, have exactly one odd item within reach. Mine is a small mica covered stone zuni bear fetish.

Yay! Thanks for entering my giveaway! As for my zuni bear's protection, he may be on strike until I finally feed him. I recently found out that you're supposed to make sure to always leave them a fresh offering of cornmeal, and, bad bad me, I STILL have not done so. Must remember to pick some up for him! (her?)
