The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Next week "TWIST[ed]"






Well, this week my photo isn't much; nothing spectacular in terms of noble prize winner, figuratively speaking. rofl It's just a glass apothecary jar that you might have found in the General Merchantile Store on Little House on the Prairie - filled with penny candy. I'd say it was Root Beer flavored hard candies!! Oh and the jar is reflected in the mirror. The mirror is glass?! Ya, baby!!]

  1. When I read the Heinz teaser in the Google Reader I thought FOR SURE your "glass" was going to be a tipped upside down BOTTLE of my favorite KETCHUP! LOL! But you tricked me! :)

  7. Anni,

    I love your apothecary jar. The village where we went on Sunday to the maple sugar bush had square glass apothecary jars and the boys bought some old fashioned stick candy, including root beer, which they call sasperilla.

    Take care and have a safe and fun weekend.
    Blessings,
    Mary

  11. Root beer flavored candy... grr...

    It wasn't kind of you, Annie, to do it to me that early in the day ;-)

    But I know you meant well, besides it (root beer) grows on you, they say. I just didn't spend enough years in US to let it grow.

    Good shot anyway, and it's a nice jar by any means.

    Have a great weekend.

  33. I didn't think of that- I could have taken a picture of the stuff on my mantle reflected in the mirror behind it. I'd fill that jar with all kinds of colorful small things.

  46. Enjoyed your ‘personals’ this morning … and the ‘teaser’ for the ‘mirrored’ shot for Photo Hunt. You do have a way of ‘twisting’ words and ‘seeing things’ to catch us unaware (or keep us on our toes).
    Hugs and blessings,

    ReplyDelete
  75. When you think of how many items' a jar such as this will hold, the immages are endless!

    Simplicity of a jar! Unique photo in itself. How many times is a photo taken of an item such as this?

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love apothecary jars, if I had more space I would collect them, I really would.
