Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?


    Before I select a picture for the Saturday contest, I see if the answer is readily available from Google, which is what nixed the photo of the flowery David atop the blog today—even though I was fairly certain few readers would wander there, a few keyword searches kicked out the Macy's Flower Show.
      Not so this curious wooden case, with its dozen ... well, what ARE those? Ice cubes? Crystals? I have to give credit to my cousin, Evie, for this one. We were ... umm ... in a place, and she suggested this thing would perhaps stump the Hive Intelligence. I had to agree.
     So, where is this? Bonus points for, what is this? The winner will receive one of my not-really-dwindling-as-fast-as-I'd-like store of 2015 blog posters. Place your guesses below. Good luck.

  1. Well, I believe I've got it, but I already have a cool poster, so I'll let others give it a shot. I could give a clue, but I think he's a cool accessory.

  7. Nerts! I thought that was a pretty good guess. I figured they were weird healing crystals of some kind.

  9. I actually did give a somewhat lame clue in my first response, so points (but no gifts - I have neither posters nor books) to anyone who figures it out.

Thanks for commenting. As soon as I vet your remarks, they'll be posted, assuming they aren't, you know, mean and crazy.
