What is This? The Answer!

Well, faithful readers, what is it?  Your guesses included an ashtray, incense burner, candle holder & bird feeder.  I thought it was a string holder. It took a lot of google searching with lots of different keywords to finally find it -- and we were ALL WRONG!  It's a Red Wing Pottery hanging planter.   I NEVER would have guessed that -- especially since it didn't have any drainage holes.

I still think it makes a great string holder and think I'll suggest that when I list it on Etsy.  Look at how good it looks with string:
I can just see that on the check out counter of some upscale store or on the work counter in the studio of a glitzy Etsy seller.   Hopefully, they'll use nice baker's twine or something stylish and not white string from an old man's workbench at an estate sale...

Thanks for guessing!  It seems that there's ALWAYS something new to learn!

Hmm it seems too small for that but maybe a small plant.

I love when folks come up with a different use for something. A string holder is a good idea...I can't really picture it as a hanging plant holder but..... Enjoy your week!

I managed to go though only some of content articles you share here, but I come across them as particularly fascinating and informative assets.
