Sunday Stills ~ Odds and Ends


This week's Sunday Stills photo challenge is Odds and Ends. We've all got plenty of them around don't we?



On a kitchen shelf is this odd combination of
a wine cork collection, my mom's old ricer (to make
potato rice for Lefse), a metal container for tea,
and a mini mixer truck.





These coaster aren't really odd, but they are
very special to me. My friend Debbie does
a lot of wood burning and she made these for me.





My sister-in-law found these at a garage
sale and immediately thought of us. It's just
ceramic with a golden glaze. I used a flash
and I thought the photo turned out pretty good.





This is an antique bolus applicator used to
get the bolus (big cow pills) down a cow's throat.






And of course we live with John Wayne!


Check out some other interesting Odd and Ends in the comments section here.

Enjoy your Sunday!

My grandmother had a similar ricer in her kitchen utensil drawer.

I love the looks of the ceramic piece. I have some of my mom and grandmother's old utensils that I still use.

LOL John wayne! Thats hilarious. That balling gun isn't an antique we still have one but we do have a newer model but the newer one didnt always work as well as that one so we kept it.

What fun it is to see everyone's odds and ends. Nice new camera. I got a new one too, but am having trouble weaning myself off the old one.

Thanks for your comments.

Happy New Year!

Very neat pictures. It amazes me that so many of us collect the same little 'odds & ends', namely the potatoe ricer, the little Sleepy Time tin and wine corks. Great job.

Great odd and ends Karen, though I'm not to sure how I'd feel about Big John watching my every move!! LOL

Janice said...

Great post you have some really neat and unique things in your home. I would like John to come visit.

You're the 4th person with a cork collection. What does that say about you, eh? lol!

The little truck reminded me Ed and his toys. hehe!

Thanks for sharing. It's fun to see your odds and ends.

I like your pictures. That big cow pill thing looks handy for a big dog that is savvy about butter or cheese to hide pills. Regular Guy.
