Happy, happy weekend! Thank you all for playing our “What is it?” game this week. We had so many guesses (to read them, click here and scroll down), and quite a few of you knew that this item is a vintage nut grinder. Such a fun little piece, with a very pretty base. Noelle encouraged me to carefully jiggle the cap off so that we could peek inside the inner workings. I just purchased it when the two of us took a trip to Lancaster, PA a few weeks ago, and haven’t come up with a purpose for this pretty grinder yet. It’s intended use isn’t very practical for me, but I like at all the same. Perhaps it will simply hold a few stems of daisies next summer.
