The Mysterious Disappearance of Distressed Donna and Charming Chucks
So on Easter Sunday Distressed Donna posted a lovely Happy Easter, and then promptly she and Chucks disappeared from everywhere.
Here's what happened.
We went out to eat a late Easter dinner at a restaurant. Then the Evil Mr. Food Poisoning hit both of us around 1AM Monday morning. We blame it on the honey mustard dressing. Days of woe followed until Thursday morning when we felt almost human and decided to keep our respective dental appointments. I would go off for a periodontal cleaning below the gums, and Chucks would merrily skip to his root canal.
Now for the good news. I did go shopping a bit last Saturday and have a few finds to show albeit two days late. AND Chucks felt well enough to draw the winner of my blog birthday giveaway.
First - look at those two adorable with a capital "A" chairs.
A positively ancient green rocker - very similar to a blue one I already have.
A tiny red chair just like the one my brothers and I stood on to brush our teeth.
It is large on huge casters with four compartments.
In its new life either a high top outside table or a giant planter.
I am leaning towards the planter idea.
Just because I am feeling the need to get my hands into some soil and plant something.
Six small and two large metal bins with handwritten labels.
I bought the shaving brush for its shape.
While drifting around the thrift store I spied a bunch of rhythm band instruments and made a mental note: "Need to buy those."
When I drifted back around, all were gone except the jingle bells.
Two lovely pillows made from a cutter quilt.
"Ma" - doesn't she look like a gangster's mother? Love that frame!
Girl with her dog and cat.
Nicely embroidered Serenity Prayer.
We have about worn out that prayer this week.
The clerk at the checkout could not believe how cheap this oil painting was.
I explained that I personally own three of these.
Mass market painting by assembly line.
Forties floral print - original frame.
A signed photograph of a blue bicycle.
Super cheap-o frame but the composition is nice.
Appears to be forties or fifties.
Wish Murray had put one of his/her initials on the painting.
I put all your names in my new old-looking metal trug from Decor Steals and had Chucks rise from his sick bed to pull out a name.
When he learned I was sending off a chunk of Horror Monster, he suggested pulling two second place winners.
So the winner is:
Eddie from Eddie-torial Comments
(Eddie, you might ought to rent a new storage building!)
And in second place we have:
Kim from Snug Harbor Bay
Congratulations and thanks to all of you who wrote concerned messages of why we had disappeared.
I think I am back and I think I will -
