Vintage Treasure

Hi Everyone
 Happy Tuesday
Many times when treasure hunting
we find
 a vintage item
 that we have absolutely no idea
 what it was originally
 used for......
yes its vintage but what is it?


This turquoise  plastic over wire piece 
is just one of those items  
we all had fun trying to guess what it was 

a pencil holder
a flower frog
a  wooden spoon holder
 a lipstick holder


LOL


What do you think it is?


After much research
{and a google image search}
we discovered it is a flower frog
 from the 50's


Still seems so odd to put this flower frog in a vase
full of water


Did this Funky Flower
frog fool you or did you know what it was for



romantic saying for today

"Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind"

  5. That is a really unique flower frog. It would look wonderful in a clear glass vase. Pamela
