Not just repurposing, but BEING repurposed......" if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has gone, the new has come." ~~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

It's WHAT ?!?!? Say it isn't so !

Wow.  It's been so long since I've posted, I hope I even remember how!  It's not that I've been monumentally busy, just enough going on to keep me a little unfocused.  Plus, I'm a bit of a procrastinator (yes, Rachel, I still owe you a package, sorry, it's still on the way).  I have been getting some organizing done around my house, and some home improvement projects.  Had a son graduate AND get a drivers license.  A couple out-of-town (okay, several states away) weddings, which reminds me I need to focus on my daughter's wedding in August.   My best friend moved back to town from Kansas (YAY!!) and another friend is opening a business that I've been helping with.  

SO, though I've been buying, I haven't been doing a lot of repurposing projects lately.  I thought Donna's "What was it?" Junk party would be a great way to get back into the swing of things. 

So what is this?....I don't know, but I'm thinking that it came with a box of stuff from an auction, because I don't think I'd buy this.

At least I got my money's worth!  It's actually two pieces that were nested together.

At a recent speaking engagement I was showing it off Vanna White style, explaining that I didn't know what it was.  Someone from the audience spoke up and said she believed farmers placed them outside their back doors.  They were for scraping MANURE off their boots.....EWWW!! 

Not sure if that's really what it is.  All I know is the spikes are VERY spiky!  Keep this one away from the kids! 

So I'm using it as a fun way to showcase some vintage photos, similar to a frog. 

Now I've got to go, my list of awaiting projects is calling me!

Oh...AND...I've got to go wash my hands (maybe twice!).

I saw something like this in England along window sills and such to keep the birds from perching.

I agree, it CLEARLY was meant for you to use to hold photos! :) Very cute!

I have no idea but my first thought was that as there is a pair perhaps it is for doing something to wool during the raw processing part? Very cool re-purposing!!
