Blue Chips

I thought I'd start the week with a guessing game! What do you think these blue glass chips and stones are used to make? The winner (or best comic answer!) gets a free link tomorrow. All together now - Wooow!

used in making a sidewalk.

I thought it was pebble dash at first. I'm goinf to have to go with that. You got me all curious now.

Hope said...

The blue really caught my eye from the portal...it's really pretty. I would also guess asphalt for roadway paving or something like that.

I am no expert on glass but I am going to take a wild stab, Marley. Blue wine bottles? (something dear to my heart)

Hi Marley, they are actually some mis-shapen Smarties that have been put in a bag of mis-shapen Polos and for sale on Cheltenham market for 50p a 100gramm.

Shame you didn't keep this for tomorrow, as you could have joined my Bluesday Tuesday series.

Well I agree with babooshka that it looks like pebbledash used to decorate walls. I'm thinking the glass chips would reflect light in all directions and wonder if they are being used on bollards to make them visible at night.

Jackie said...

I thought pebbledash for walls too. Failing that, I think they're ground down, turned into little blue pills and offered via the medium of spam email as the solution to ahem size issues (let the reader understand).

an antique ming vase thrown at you?!! :)

Hilda said...

Whatever it was used for there, I'd love to have our perimeter wall made of it. The blue is fabulous!

Tanya said...

That blue just pops! Beautiful! I'm clueless as to what they were used for but I'd use them now for a mosaic!
Nice photo. Actually you could use them as a mosaic picture frame to frame this photo ;)

It's actually Blue Number 5 nail polish. Someone dropped their favorite bottle of Blue No. 5 toenail polish onto the ground.

Lori said...

You've got me stumped! I'm afraid I have no idea. It makes for an interesting photo though. I have a feeling it's for something made with glass, but I really don't know!! I'm going to say glass tiles for bathrooms and kitchens.

Ruby said...

The pieces look a bit sharp and rough to be too decorative - is it some sort of dastardly pebbledashing to stop burlars scaling walls (owch!)!!

The inside of the fridge in yesterdays pub.

Obviously, that faith has been shaken recently because blue-chip shares just haven't appreciated. Over the past decade, Standard & Poor's 500 index has returned a mere 3.7% a year. You'd have to go back to the end of the 1970s bear market - or to the late 30s, as the Great Depression was winding down - to find a worse 10-year stretch for blue-chip stocks.
