Yesterday, I asked for your best guess on what you thought the numbered tag were...
that we found in this old machinest tool box.
I was positive they were some sort of tag for a hotel room and Elena at A' Casarella guessed the same thing. It pains me to admit, we were both wrong.
I have some clever readers. Rea at Home For4 Sweet Home guessed that the tags were to used to prioritize projects. Wrong but kind of a fun idea, I think I might try that with my husband's to do list.
Daniela at Frugal Ain't Cheap suggested their purpose was to give a vintage look to baskets. Again, wrong but it made me giggle and think of my get cozy basket.
Two of my brilliant readers, Holly at Full Circle Creations AND M.Breitel guessed correctly.
Can you believe these brass tags, which we cleaned up using briwax, were used for cows?
Since we don't have any cows, maybe I'll take Jill at Sew a Fine Seam suggestion and turn them into jewelry. My only concern, someone might confuse me for a cow :)
