What The? [week 8]

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted! Blogger doesn’t have an auto post (*shakes fist*), and family needed some attention this morning.

Want a chance to win a new blog header? Guess what the following closeup is a picture of. (If you’d like to see some of my work before you decide to answer that question, view this pagefor some samples)

To enter to win:
Make your guess in the comments.
The first person with the correct answer will have their name put into a drawing for the header.
There will be one prize winner per month.
That winner will be randomly chosen from the prior weeks’ winners. (I will draw a name once a month from that months winners.)

**Let me know if you are interested in giving something away in the future. You would be responsible for getting it to the winner.

Today’s photo:


  1. Missy @ It's Almost Naptime says

    Oh Karla, it’s so small my old eyes can barely see it!

    My guess is a close up of a nose piercing. Ok, just kidding. Have to think more.

  2. Missy @ It's Almost Naptime says

    an earring in an ear??

  3. I was gonna say earring as well. but maybe it’s some sort of wire coming out of… something. nose piercing makes the most sense though…

  4. My 4-year old said the picture is a brown shoe lying on a white floor.

    “And it is not stinky,” he said. “Like yours.”



  5. crafty carolinagirl says

    Wow that is tough. Is it a doll part?

  6. Is it part of a hanger?



  7. A Cup of Joy says

    This is very tiny photo. Hmmm….here’s a wild guess…is it part of a crib?

  8. Megan (FriedOkra) says


    Part of the earbud of an MP3 player? Or a hearing aid?

    I need glasses now.

  9. THE OTHER HUSE says

    I’m nearly kissing my computer to try and see it, but it looks like a bandaid on a finger.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s on the index finger, too.

  10. A Chelsea Morning says

    I didn’t knkow you could post a photo that small, Karla. LOL

    I haven’t got the foggiest idea what that is but it looks kind of gross. My immediate thought was all those love handles people are finding on TV commercials lately.

    It does look kind of like an ear, but if it is, that’s one very strange earring.

  11. ok – is it part of a handle of some sort? like for a mop bucket or some other cleaning device? Perhaps while you were cleaning out your shower drain you grabbed your camera to also take a picture of something you were using to clean with. *grins* That little piece of metal….hmmm…I’m going now with a cleaning instrument of some sort. Yup. That’s my guess and I am sticking to it.

  12. imaginary binky says

    I’m straining my eyes. Argh!

    I’d say it’s a handle to a loofah or perhaps a fancy kitchen utensil. Or maybe a coat hook. Or a tonsillectomy device. Or Bob Barker.

  13. is it a hinge of some sort? like on sunglasses or something like that? it looks like there is a tiny screw of some sort there…but then what in the world is the piece at the bottom.


    This is driving me nuts and yet I can’t seem to stay away!

  14. THE OTHER HUSE says

    I still can’t get the idea of it being a bandaid out of my head. But, I can’t stop coming back and getting closer to the screen to try to figure it out.

    I bet you sit and laugh at all the answers.

    Is anyone even CLOSE?

  15. Okay it kind of looks like a small section of one of those little wooden artist dolls…they’re connected at the joints with metal hinges and you can pose it? My son has one from Ikea…am I making any sense?

  16. My guess is that it’s some kind of shell or rock… maybe on a chain of some sort. But really I have no idea. I’ll be bookmarking your site so I can come back again. Thanks for a fun game!

  17. Raw Chicken?

  18. Braces on teeth?

  19. I have NO CLUE, but have subscribed so I can find out the answer.

  20. Yard Sale Princess says

    Is it a hearing aid?
