The Answer

2.11.2012


Well, that was fun reading all your thoughts and ideas on what this copper item is. 

I gave you a close up of the hinged top that shows you that it opens.

Your guesses were food mold, bed warmer, decorative vent cover, a pan to roast nuts, stove top lid,
omelet pan, a flu cover, pressure cooker lid, oh, and I love this one....an over sized door knocker, and my favorite was that if the label didn't say bed warmer then it was mislabeled. Oh, and Kat, no, it is not a toilet lid! ha, ha.

The only one who had the correct answer was Marigene. I should have had a prize to give. I didn't know this was going to be so tough for y'all.

So are you ready to see what it actually is?


It does hang just like I have it and you grab hold of the thing at the bottom and........

.....you lift it open to find your KEYS!

I placed my decorative keys in it just for these pictures. 

So now you know it is a key holder.

Kind of cool isn't it?

  9. So funny. I tried to cheat like Bliss did and I googled every single thing I thought it might be and what was so funny is that your older posts on your copper collection kept coming up in all my results!!!!

    That's what you get when you cheat.... a dead end and no answer!
