Some recent and some not so...

 This is a ____, I found a couple weeks ago in a junk shop. 
I have no idea what it is, but it's heavy and sounds like a maraca when shaken.

 At the same junk shop my girlfriend {scene drinking tea in the reflection} 
snatched up this photo. Photo, frame, and original glass only $20.

Not so new, but the best present a mom has ever given is this 
Victorian era taxidermy Nutria (or Coypu).

These are the cat whiskers I find, usually about one a week.
Seems a shame to throw them away.

  1. FYI

    It is a wheel balancer, used to place wheels or other objects on to ensure they are balanced to run correctly. For example, you can place lawnmower blades on it to ensure they run true.
