      I did pretty well. I thought part of the squash skin looked like a cantalope, but knew it wasn't that. I thought number one was a bottle cap.

      I got most of it correctly. I am intrigued about the very first picture.

      You had me scratching my head on 1, 4, and 9. I'm very curious about what the intro picture is.

      Challenging - I had the egg cup as a mug and the butternut squash as a pumpkin.

      A few of those stumped me for a bit. I went back for a second and third look at a couple and they suddenly jumped out at me, the last one being butternut squash.

      @thesuccess2: thanks for the feedback. I will talk to Squidoo about a photo quiz.

      The egg cup stumped me - we haven't used ours in decades. The others were more familiar and it was fun and challenging to think a bit on what each photo portrays. The computer mouse is a clever puzzle.

      There is a quiz module but I don't think it works with photos (idea for squidoo?). I liked the photos.

      I think the intro picture is your computer mouse! Very clever collection of pictures!

      Very creative idea. I really love it. I couldn't figure out a few, and the introductory picture is one of them.

      lovely idea, although i agree that the images could maybe have been even harder! number 9 had me seriously stumped though!

      you stumped me on the tin opener. You could add a quiz with multiple choice answers after each photo if you wanted to jazz it up even more.

      @bechand: In England when we boil an egg we then sit it in an egg cup to knock its top off and spoon out the contents, also dipping in fingers of bread or toast which we call soldiers!!

      nice idea - although they weren't as hard as I was expecting - Next time I would zoom in even more! I did think the squash was a pumpkin, but common - they are pretty much the same thing ... I will admit, though, I have no clue what an egg cup is - is it for cooking in? (thought it was a mug) - other than that, the rest were rather easy. Thanks for sharing - was fun !
