So is this a "FROG"????

A friend was at Goodwill the other day and found this piece of pottery. She knows I like 'frogs' and that I have a few displayed around the house - so she bought this and gave it to me.
I am curious though whether this is a 'frog' or if it is some kind of kitchen container?? Anyone know!!!

Thanks for stopping by ----------- Roberta

Interesting! I have no clue! lol!

No idea either. I know garlic holders sometimes have holes in them.

My mother used to have (and may still have) several of these. She'd set one in an ornamental bowl not otherwise suited for a floral arrangement, stick flowers in the round holes and keep the water level up via the larger hold

Yes, I would say that's a frog, the larger opening on the edge there is probably for easy access to add more water to the flowers without disturbing the arrangement, so I think you got yourself a froggie find there! Well done!
I'm still looking for my first one.

I have never seen a frog like this, but I agree with a couple of the others that it looks like one using the larger opening to add water.

Hi Roberta, you are so much better at keeping up with your blogging than I am. I was away from blogging and blog reading for quite a while but try to catch up now. I've just seen the pictures from San Francisco - must have great a great weekend that you spent there. And you have some great WIPs on the go.

I would have guessed that it is a garlic bulb holder, but then I've never seen a flower frog in the wild, either. ;)

Okay this is an easy one. The so called frog was originally for roses - it's a rose bow. But load of us use them to store scissors in now when we have fobs attached or not as the case may be. I have shown my scissor frog before so if you go back far enough on my blog you can see it.
Lots of Love

Sorry Roberta, I forgot to answer your question about my ruck sack. I did have a pattern that a friend had given me, but I wasn't very keen on it, so in the end I made the pattern up as I was going along - and the fabric (gorgeous isn't it!) is called 'Harvest Home' by Blackbird Designs.
