Okay, time to reveal the place!
It’s on my wooden desk with 2 drawers, which has a big, wooden-like board hanging above. Together they kinda look like a wooden hutch.
It’s inside my transparent-plastic pencilcase, between pens, a scissor, a candy and a ruler.
Around the pencilcase are 2 candles, 2 table lights, 2 boxes filled with random stuff, a flower, a broken green vase, my pendulum, and several books. Royster
: you got the general shape of the hiding place. And you got that it isn’t in the kitchen: the room is used as family room sometimes. You found out the spoon is at the open, not in a drawer, but still on a wooden surface. Well done Helesinie
: You didn’t quite get the place right (the present or the normal one), but above the drawers there happens to be a real flower. DanAdrian:
There were drawers nearby, although you didn’t get the room. A nice first try. Dezrae, Sups
: There were drawers, 1 bottle, 2 bottle-like objects. There was a mess befitting a medicine cabinet, and things shaped like objects of a medicine cabinet, but it wasn’t the place. Sups you got the wood. Nice try, both of you. Anniebugs:
The wooden strips could be representative to the pencils and the ruler, although they weren’t wooden. I have some little square pictures on the board above the desk. Frills/flower: there were two ribbons near the flower. The flower’s dead, though, although I also had a living one right before hiding the spoon. Squarish object: that would be the candle base, it’s made of golden wires and looks both a little cheap and like an antique. There’s a hanging heart in the middle, not knob though. Birds: There is a drawing containing birds. And you can sometimes hear birds from outside-it’s good you specified towards the sound. Freshness: not really. Maybe freshness is because there is a lot of movement around the desk. With your analysis you leaned towards the wooden table-like surface, although you didn’t specify. Very good! Nicknac:
you found the two ribbons (1 sheer red, 1 black), no embroidery/laced though. You got the wooden structure, although it was «on» instead of «in». You were the only one to find my pendulum, which I hang nearby. Very good, especially for first try!
One would find the spoon much easier via Royster’s directions, but Annie got more details...It is a difficult decision...
I’ll give the winner’s place to Royster, because of the better directions. We’ll be waiting for your pic
Again, well done everyone!
