THE WORLD OF WINKLES

When I ordered my winkles from Ireland, I received a bit of teasing about their name. I admit it may have been because I was so excited about getting them. Someone (we will not name) even had so much fun she made a wonderful treasury with winkles as the basis. Well, I've received my winkles and they are so tiny and cute...I love them!

I decided just for the fun of it to do a search on Etsy and Artfire to see what comes up when you enter "winkles". I had no idea there would be such a fun and wide variety of items. Here are the different things that I found:

uh, very nice Pepper. It is fun to see what comes up in searches, sometimes.
Now you just have to show us what you are going to do with them...or are they just for display?
