Day 107-What is this?

Note to self: I should probably know for sure what something it is before I post it for this week's challenge of "What is this?" Nah, that might not happen!

You had such good guesses yesterday! And I think Becky's is the most accurate. This is a larger, more distant, view of this polished agate/rock thingy. I don't exactly know what it is, and have wondered if it does contain some kind of fossil in it. But I think it's a slice of agate, polished. It may not be clear from this photo, but the bottom is flat, and the top is more dome-shaped.


I'm pretty sure you'll figure out what this is:

I am so bad at these "What is it? pictures! I would say the inside of a melon (the seeds). I'm probably way off! I'm taking a class through Big Picture Scrapbooking with Allison Tyler Jones. Really making me think about pictures.....

Reds said...

My first guess was rice... but I don't think it is... some kind of seeds probably!

Christine said...

HOO, Is it, SESAEME SEEDS!

Man that rock thingy is really pretty. Kinda looks like maybe a fossil to be there.

Yvonne said...

I was also gonna say rice or some kind of seeds. Loved the rock thing though, looks like art!

Suzy said...

Mandy said...

That is a really awesome rock...its so beautiful and detailed. I think its rice...but I am not sure. Maybe seeds of some sort? Hehe...I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow.

And, YES, I have read Bird by Bird and I love that book. I read it in high school. She really is an amazing writer. I loved getting in her head.

Kristina said...

Hmm...looks like orzo. Is it?

Jess said...

Neat fossil! Is the next one seeds? Maybe sesame seeds?

Mom2Drew said...

Inside a melon!

Toni said...

Is that rosoto? or rice?

Becky said...

That's pretty! It looks like an eyeball, and you know how I like eyeballs. ;-) The second one: bird seed? Pine nuts? One of those foods like orzo that I never know if i'ts a rice or a pasta?

Bobbi said...

You give me too much credit lol...some type of seed but no idea what kind?

pat said...

How neat!! I would have thought the rock was bigger than that, great detail. You had me stumped! I would say some seeds for today!
