Answer to Last week’s photo:


Congrats to: BunnyB, a mysterious reader, with no listed blog. So I have to go to the next correct guesser: Beckie, aka Spooky,a SAH~AP, Breastfeedin’, Toddlerwearin’, Sleep Sharin’, SpiralScoutin’, Homeschoolin’ Mama to three little ones. And slightly obsessed with Alice in Wonderland.

As always ~ Thanks for playing along! Y’all are the best! You’re my favorite internets ~mwah~


In other LTH business, except for those three boxes and and few others things still at the old place WE ARE ALL MOVED.

Have mercy, moving is hard work. I am never more exhausted than I am the night of a move.

We would have never been able to get it done without Mrs.Fussypants watching our kiddlets (my 4 kiddlets + her 5 kiddlets = a lot of kiddlets and several glasses a glass of wine to unwind at the end of it all) and Mr. Fussypants (actually, he is Mr. Smartypants) helping move things.

And I just found out that Meredith (Like Merchant Ships) is bringing us some soup.

(another reason I love Nashville and the internet! )

I still have to go back and clean the old place. Not my favorite thing. Especially not when I have a nice new place I want to be hanging out in. I am so over that place…


  1. Princess Time Toys says:

    New sewing foot in plastic?

    Fun contest!


  2. Franklin5 says:

    The inner workings of a lamp?

    mrs. f5

  3. The base of a lantern?

  4. Shades of Pink says:

    I think it is the top of a grand piano with things setting on top of it. Am I close? Probably not…

  5. the filament of a flash bulb on a camera or flashlight

  6. Anonymous says:

    Karla, I am glad you are finally in your house with STEPS!

    Joce W.

  7. I’m stumped!
    Maybe the edge of a nightstand or a picture frame???
    These just get harder and harder!
    Super fun!

    By the way…You look lovely as well :)

  8. I do NOT know! I even made my husband come over to peer at it with me!

  9. The Nester says:

    cleaning that old place is the WORST! I don’t envy you at all!

  10. The bottom of a window frame?

  11. It’s a mirror sitting on or behind a chair or couch reflecting back items (glass, sunglasses, etc) on a counter or shelf.

    At least that’s what I *Think* it looks like. lol

  12. That lady with 6 daughters says:

    I’m guessing that it’s a close up of something you found in your new house. Like a crawfish.

  13. TX Poppet says:

    This looks eerily like my dining room. I see a counter with a clear plastic painting tarp and a lampshade. Dying to know what it really is.

  14. aheartforhome says:

    Okay, I have studied and studied it and I’m still not sure. It’s a light of some sort. I can see a little bulb in there. The question is, what kind of light is it? I don’t know that part. Is it perhaps a light on a child’s toy? Or maybe a camera flash? Or a flashlight? Or maybe the light on a vacuum cleaner? I will continue to think…..

  15. Is it a sewing machine with a very thin fabric under foot? This one is tricky.

  16. PsychMamma says:

    The edge of a sink?

  17. PsychMamma says:

    A window ledge?

  18. T with Honey says:

    The best I can come up with is that it is the living room window in your new house.

  19. R.L.Scovens says:

    My son thinks it’s one of those old tyme cameras with the flash bulb on top. This was a hard one!

  20. Samantha @ the Listener's post says:

    It’s a bomb….no, wait! You’re the bomb!

    Seriously, I think it looks like one of those siren-type lights that spins around (you know, like on a police car, only this one is clear).

    Little Man thinks it’s a cup, though. He’s very serious about that…

    Sam @ theListenerspost

  21. Okay, I’ve still be studying this thing…. I think it’s a small light that spins around while flashing. I just don’t know what it’s on. Is it a flashing light on a child’s toy? Perhaps a toy car or truck? Maybe it’s some kind of indicator light on a phone or kitchen appliance or something. I don’t know, this one is hard!

  22. Looks like that plastic weatherstripping you put around the window during the winter.

  23. Looks like an old school desk holding something. Hard to tell what is on it.


  24. Can I guess again? Its a desk and part of a desk chair

  25. Yard Sale Princess says:

    My guess is that it is a new sink before it is installed and it is missing the handles.


  26. Ok, I have a lot of guesses:
    lighthouse light?
    bunson burner?
    ship in a bottle?
    strobe light?

    I’ll keep thinking…
