WHO WANTS THIS? GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
The WINNER is...
LINDA from PARKERS PARADISE
Linda, please email me your address so I can mail this to you. Hope you enjoy it.

Well I have been wanting to do another quickie giveaway. That way, if you happen to visit me today or tomorrow you will be the only ones allowed to enter the giveaway. You never know when I'm going to do one of these quickie giveaways so you need to come visit daily in order to not miss out.

The other day I posted about my salt cellar collection and thanks to some of you smart people I found out this one is not a salt cellar at all. In fact it's from the 1800's to early 1900's and it was used as an eye cup. Back before we had eye drops people would have to put the medicine in these little cups and rinse their eyes out.

They made some very pretty. Then as time went on they turned into plastic ones and then they were gone all together.

Since I don't collect these but it seems like a lot of you do I thought I would do a giveaway for this one. Even if you don't collect them, but think it's an interesting piece of history please enter.

If you are interested in it please leave me a post here and tomorrow evening I will draw a name from those of you interested and someone will be the lucky winner.

It does not matter if you have already won a giveaway from me or if you live out of the country. Everyone can enter my giveaways. Everyone has the same chance of winning. If you don't have a blog please leave me your email address though in case you win.

If you don't win or if you don't like this giveaway that's no need to worry. I'm going to be doing these little short giveaways all the time so come back. Sooner or later you should find something you like and the of course the more you enter the more likely you are to win.

Hugs,
Joanne

Oh how funny- I never would have guessed! Looking at it now though, seems like it would fit the eye.
I'd be honored to display it- such a beautiful energetic blue!

Why didn't I see that??? I have an old colbalt blue bottle with the lid shaped exactly like that..... and what is the bottle? Some sort of eye wash.

Please count me in for your drawing.

I had never heard of an eye cup until reading this post. But I think it's very cute and I would love to have it. (Please ignore if this is duplicated. I'm trying this on hubby's computer and having trouble with my "identity'.)

Congratulations, Linda!!!!
