This one is a candy container. The body is hollow, and the head twists off so the contents can be reached. I agree. It is vaguely disturbing. It is, however, a glittery vintage Christmas ornament bird.
I recently acquired a small vial of silver glass glitter and proceeded to see how quickly I could use it. Soon I had glittered a number of things, and there was a faint trail of glitter throughout the house.
(I made these to hang from a tree, which explains why they're sitting on little curtain rings for their photos. Curtain rings often are in box lots of sewing notions, and there's nothing better for holding roly-poly objects in place for photos. Having photographed several thousand Christmas ornaments over the years, I feel I have some expertise in this matter.)
I see some places (right in the center) where I want to add more flowers. This was an extremely fun project. One that required getting out multiple boxes of objects such as ornaments, silver leaves, millinery flowers and glass bead picks. If you follow the trail of glitter upstairs, you'll find a work area that's an astonishing mess! But in a good way. In a now-that-all-this-stuff-is-out-I-should-make-more-of-these kind of way.
