So there you have "guess what #4".......Hope you enjoyed it!
More To Come........
so often when one has to replace an old favourite it looks foreign and alien but those are a joy to look at. How super.
If I am ever remotely close on one of these things, I'll probably drop over from amazement.
You got me. I was thinking it looked like tire marks but knew it wasn't and then thinking a plant for sure. I never would have guess a faucet fixture.
The duck bit the dust, eh. The new one is very pretty, makes me feel shameful for the state of some of mine.
Very pretty :-)
My mum & dad couldn't believe it when they liberated their bath from the cheap&nasty plywood sheets that surrounded it. It's a metal bath that has the clamshell type metal feet. And someone had hidden those away behind nasty plywood sheets ?
I'm very similar with change - should have replaced my car a couple of years ago but I'm only just being prodded into looking seriously. And that's because there are warning lights lighting up that are ominous ...
very cool photo! Michele sent me to say hello!
They are so elegant! The old and the new...I like the way it looked like golden tracks!
Oh, what gorgeous faucets. I just love the ones that look like that, both your old and new.
And again....not in a million years would I have guessed this...lol I'm terrible at these games.
Have a great weekend, Naomi.
Hi Naomi! What a wonderful surprise. Super and kudos to your blog.
I'm still shaking my head -- I wouldn't have thought this was the design on the tap.
Wow! I like your bathroom...very, very, very much -- old or new. Hm...shall gatecrash there one day eh?!
Do have a glorious weekend!
WOW; it's pretty! The details do not show well in your photos of the whole set, but I can see how ddetailed it really is. Very nice! I don't like change either, and I would not ever get around to replacing things like that unless they break and are un-repairable.
Pretty pretty shiny shiny ( that is a quote from a cartoon my kids watch lol)
How cool! I would have never guessed that.
Thanks for telling as I would never have guessed.
Its beautiful though - so classic and pretty!
Wishing you a great end to your week Naomi :-)
That was a ridiculously difficult difficult one to guess! But the end pix were worth it. And the old taps...what fun! The new ones are a fitting replacement!
(actually I don't think you call them taps, but I can't remember the word...faucets?)
well I never would have guessed that one lol.. it might have something to do with bad eyes huh? h ahahahaha...
Just amazing, Naomi! Those macro photos are great! Really I would have never guessed that.
Have a nice weekend my dear!
I like that - late to the party as usual, I did have a guess before reading down.....I thought it may have been a jelly mould (jello in the US?).
But those taps are stunning, and quite the suitable replacement for those old taps. I do like the idea of the spouting dragon head, though!
Oh, how pretty - I would never have figured it out...
the old faucet is beautiful in a dungeons and dragons sort of way. hehe.
i think the new are more lovely in a graceful, ladylike manner. :)
I was going to guess that it was a statue of some sort. never would have thought it was your faucet, for heaven's sake! lol
I thought the old ones were cute, too, a fish head and tails? The new one is a good replacement, though. It's SO Hollywood Glam!
Oh! I see you said it was a dragon. I thought the scales made it look like a fish, ha-ha!
I haven't been able to identify one thing that you've shown. But I will keep trying. I am a never-give-up-ski.
Well, I didn't guess it correctly. I don't think I ever would have figured it out.
I actually like the old fixtures and the new ones too, also, in addition, as well.
At first, I thought the old faucet was a duck!!
The new fixtures are more elegant.
I don't like change either. I mean if something is working well, then I don't like to mess with it. I get accustomed to it, and that is comforting to me. If something is not working well, I'm quick to make a change and find something that's better.
Looks like no one guessed it Naomi!! I sure never would have. The fixtures are lovely. I need new ones in our bathroom but keep putting it off. They aren't broke but they look kind of cruddy due to the hard water eroding some of it around the base in one area.
I love your new ones and the old ones were certainly different!!
I know you miss your friend so much. It's so sad to lose someone like that. I've been thinking of you during this time. Hugs to you!!
How did I miss this game? I should've gone back a post and tried to guess!
Beautiful sink, btw. Classy.
I didn't realize what it was, even in these pictures, until the picture with the sink & mirror there.
Never in a million years would I have guessed.
Beautiful fixtures, very very nice.
I came by too late to play but I know I would never in a million years have guessed right! Such a lot of detail in those faucets (taps we call them over here).
I've never seen taps like those of yours - but then Naomi, your place looks extraordinary so I expect no less of you!! Sorry I missed the opportunity to guess what they were - I wouldn't have been able to guess but still....
Very tricky indeed and they are so gorgeous :D
i couldn't guess what the picture was, but when I saw that faucet I had to laugh.... it looks just like Donald Duck! Over the top is right!
Your old faucet set is the SAME as the one I put in my art-deco apartment back in 1960? 61? It came from "The Akron"--remember that pier one predecessor?
The new one is lovely.
