Happy Thursday friends, and welcome to another edition of What the Heck Is It?
In the last What the Heck I shared this mystery item with the elephant head feet.
There were some very good guesses, but I think it’s probably what Mary, Granny, and Vickie suggested… which is a vintage wine bottle coaster
While I didn’t find a piece exactly like mine, when I googled I did see some quite elaborate ones that make me lean in that direction. The centre area is nice and flat and a wine bottle would fit there quite nicely. That would explain the grapes, but the elephant feet may forever be a mystery.
It will stay a keeper. It’s just too cool for me to part with for now.
Thanks so much to all of you for your comments. You guys are all so helpful, and it’s very much appreciated.
Now onto this week’s mystery items.
One of which is from Lynette, a TRV reader who asked if I would help her out by sharing this with you guys.
Of course I will! 🙂
She found these in a bunch of buttons that she bought and has ho idea what they are.
They’re about 1 1/4″ square, and she thinks they’re made of lucite.
If anyone could help her out that would be awesome.
And I found this lot of cool thingies, and for $2 I thought what the heck. 🙂
I have no idea what they’re used for. Some type of crafting I imagine.
They’re metal on the one side and measure about 6″long by 2″ wide.
They’re marked on the fronts, Made in China, Patent Pending, Provo Craft.
I googled Provo Craft and couldn’t find things that looked like these.
The backs are some kind of rubbery spongy substance, with what looks to be in tact cut outs.
None of them appear to have been used.
I’m wondering if these are meant to be used in some kind of machine, but that’s just a guess. I’ve never seen these thingies before.
What do you think?
What the heck are they? Any ideas?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
