Mystery Object and Posts of the Week

I thought I'd add an extra element to this week's POTW. A "mystery object" photo.

Please look at the image below. It's a close up view of part of a larger object which I saw on my way to Frank's one day. Do your best to guess what it is in the comments section. I'll publish the full image, along with other photos in tomorrow's post. Thanks for playing along!

So what do you think it is?

My guess on the mystery object is a window screen with a curtain in front of it. Because the mesh looks similar to my close up shots of window screens. I am looking forward to finding out the answer.

Looks like plastic bags inside wire containers to me.

LadyFi said...

Looks like ghosts or spirits dancing with joy!

Zuzana said...

I love the new magenta look to the icon.;))
As always, I am looking forward to read some wonderful posts. Congratulations to everyone.
Love the idea with the image.;) I am a bit lost, but to me it looks like a row of trash cans, with plastic bags in them. Can't wait to know what it truly is.;)
Have a lovely day,

järnebrand said...

Thank you for selecting those wonderful posts for us to read... I'm off checking out a couple of new ones now! :)
I think the photo is an extreme close-up of a some kind of lamp or headlight...
Love/ Jo.

Enlarging the image gave nothing away. Haven't a clue Hilary. Your mystery is well hidden. - Dave

Bonnie Zieman, M.Ed. said...

Hi Hilary, Thanks for including me in the list of Other Wonderful Posts of the week.

As for your image - I will guess dog kennels with plastic to keep the rain out??? I'll be back to find out what it really is!

Sueann said...

Fabulous post and I so enjoyed visiting the blogs you featured. Some wonderful stories and I really appreciate you finding and sharing them.
As for your mystery's a construction site where the windows have been covered with metal screening and then someone tried to cover those with plastic.
How about that for a creative guess?

Brian Miller said...

woohoo! thank you hilary! and i am in great company on that list...

is it a dress shirt?

Country Girl said...

I think it looks like a screened window with a curtain blowing across it. And thanks for the mention of my 30th Street Station post!

Unknown said...

thank you HIlary. What a nice surprise to wake up to.

the image is quite cool actually, but I have no idea. You're good!

Pauline said...

I am going with Zuzana's guess as she guessed it before I did...

Thanks for another mention in POTW and for several wonderful new sites for us to visit. So many good stories out there!

Kerri Farley said...

It looks like curtains blowing to me but that might be too easy.

I am honored to be mentioned on your blog today ~ Thank you so very much!!

Anonymous said...

I think your mystery object looks like a plastic bag....
Thanks for the posts. Have a nice day! Later! :) The Bach

steviewren said...

Is it a curtain blowing in the wind? I bet that answer is too easy...hmmmmm, can't think of a good alternative though.

Mental P Mama said...

They look like beautiful little fish nets to me! And aside from my friend Country Girl Kate, these are all new! Going to investigate;)

CiCi said...

Hi Hilary, your appreciation of my post this week is a welcome surprise. Thank you for the acknowledgment in your blog and for your wonderful comments on my blog.
My guess regarding the mystery photo is rabbit hutches. How's that for imagination?

Joanne said...

Hm, it looks like some kind of screening, or cages. A chicken coop of some sort?

Phyllis E said...

How about the bag inside a wire basket that catches shredded paper from a paper shredder?

Would you like to share any of our snow, Cuzzie? We have accumulated nearly one foot (that's 25cm in "Canadian").

abb said...

Thank you, Hilary! I'm honored to be included with this lovely group of POTW's!

And I have no idea what that is...can't wait till tomorrow!

Daryl said...

Nice selection

Sherlock Holmes thinks its some sort of filtering system unit ...

Maggie May said...

I reckon the mystery object is a bin liner in a mesh bin......... nah..... too easy! LOL

Nuts in May

Tabor said...

MORE to read? Help!! Your choices are always intriguing and worth the visits. I think it is a sorting area for something or other. Plastic bags for recycle sorting?

Dianne said...

I think Bonnie is right
some sort of kennel covered with plastic

Congrats to all the POTW folks

Off to read

Darling Hilary...your 'post a comment' is in the wrong place and difficult to, I hate to winge but I still have to go back to my blog, then click on yours in between reading the winners.

At first I thought it was curtains between screens, but that would be too easy. I intrigued and will be back tomorrow. Now I'm off to read your nomonees.

Anonymous said...

I've read four, All good of course but have to come back for the others as it is taking too long...the 'comment' bit has straightened itself out but the back and forth is still happening.XXX

ethelmaepotter! said...

What a treat to awake and find myself included in your prestigious list! Thank you so much; your comments on my posts always make my day, and then this...!

As for the mystery object...I have no idea, but I'm guessing maybe recycling bins?

Suldog said...

My best guess is perhaps a cage, or enclosure, of some sort? Maybe a rabbit hutch? Don't know about the 'curtain', though.

Nancy said...

A garbage bin?

Thanks for the POTW. I have been busy of late, and I know I have missed some great reading. I can always count on visiting here and being pointed in the right direction.

Elizabeth Bradley said...

I was thinking dog kennel

Hilary said...

Thanks everyone for playing along. Several of you are close and a couple of you are correct. I'll have the full image up along with others tomorrow.

All of you were creative in your thinking but Brian, I had no idea you wore puffy shirts! ;)

Thanks also for always supporting those named in the Posts of the Week. You folks are the greatest!

SandyCarlson said...

Thanks for the honor, Hilary! That means a lot to me.

I have been thinking about your mystery pictures. My Rorschach moment tells me it's a slender woman trying to put on a sheer, slinky dress. But no....Can't wait to find out.

messymimi said...

My first thought was a chicken coop, too, but I can't wait to see what it turns out to be.

Michael said...

Oh, that's easy. It's the ligament in my left knee. Duh. ;)
