"I've won, I've won!!"....






As soon as I saw the competition to win a bottle of Tattinger champagne and 6 glasses I thought "I've won" it's a dead cert, I know what it is because I collect them!!!



It's a babies rattle, there's a whistle on one end and a teether on the other and in the middle jingly bells, I was soooo excited and immediatly sent off the answer and also a couple of piccies, and waited....and waited....

Sadly I didn't win but felt smug as at last I got the mystery object right, (along with hundreds of others!!)

So I thought I'd share them with you anyway.


 

These have whistles on the top

 

there's the owl...


and the pussycat!




The bells and the shells...


 



the two on the left say "baby"

and a little duck.


 

I got most of them from antique fairs and a couple from car boot sales and I just love anything old and silver especially brooches, I must show you our collection of "baby" brooches one day. (I say we as Julie and I both collect them)


Oh well I was looking forward to a glass of champagne but I suppose lemonade is just as nice.....not.


Love Lucey xx

I'd rather have Lemonade than Champagne any day :)

Hi Lucey,

I'm so sorry you didn't win, but OMGoodness look at your collection of baby teething/rattles. I've never seen them so intricate or in silver....stunning. I'd say you're still a winner with a collection like that.

Hugs,
Meri

Wow these are interesting - I wouldn't have guessed what that was. The Antiques roadshow are visiting Tatton Park in Cheshire next Thursday, which isn't too far from us so I am really hoping to go for the day. xxx
