Lucky you having flowers to enjoy. Not many around here. I never saw anything like those things you shared. So unusual and something I would keep.

dogsmom said...

I have never seen anything like them. They are beautiful and I suppose smell wonderful too.

We are expecting a few more inches of snow tonight. The flowers are still hiding their heads.

Anna said...

Hi LD, they are adorable. I must admit, my first thought was salt and pepper as well. I never would have guessed what they had hidden. Have a beautiful day.

Love the dogwood pic and makes me inspired to paint a few.

Thank you for the kind comment on my kitchen redo. I am pooped and so glad to be done.

What a wonderful find, so unusual, I know I never would have been able to resist them. I adore wooden artifacts from other countries, they have such a charm about them.
