I left for La Condo before I had a chance to tear into the box of goodies I won in Kitty's Vintage Kitsch's giveaway and first, let me tell you that even though various post offices between Australia and Mississippi did their very best to smoosh the box everything came through unscathed. Apparently they only let a small herd of spider monkeys jump on the box and decided not to unleash the gorillas . . .
Please note the large box behind the yet-to-be-unwrapped goodies. I knew what was in it, something I'd been waiting for for over a freaking MONTH (eBay purchase) but there was something in Miz Kitty's box that I needed to get to: the chocolate bullets that weren't actually part of the original prize package but when I saw the photo of Lil Miz Kitty eating them I pretty much groveled and begged for some. Yay!
All kinds of cool rings that don't fit me BUT my nieces will love them especially since they're from way cool Australia. My first cup of tea when the temps drop will be in the lovely cup. Super silver bag with matching coin purse/lipstick bag. A glass stopper. A witch ball (I think). A rhinestone bracelet. LICORICE BULLETS!
I'm so happy I won her giveaway. Thank you thank you thank you!
And oh yeah, THEN I opened the big box and here's what was in it:
A gi-NOR-mous Fenton Silver Crest plate--like 16" across (cup and saucer put there for size reference). It's too big to be a cake plate but it would sure look nice with a bunch of those little tea sandwiches or a major pile of cookies.
El Husbando had managed to round up several burly dudes to help him move the pool table out of the family room today and out into his workshop (so we can put the Hey-Wake stuff in there) but Mother Nature decided to make today Rain All Day day over our house. At least I got all my crap off the pool table but now the hallway is packed with boxes and piles of old books and cookbooks. The huge box of SpongeBob Squarepants stuff has landed in the poor guest room. At this point, if we have any actual guests they will be forced to tiptoe their way through the Pyrex forest, around the 5,000 plastic boxes of beads, and over SpongeBob Box Mountain in order to make it to bed.
Better they just go to La Condo.
Speaking of which, here's El Husbando, or Der Buttmeister. He gave up telling me not to do this kind of stuff a long time ago. He he he.
Boogie is looking at me and thinking, "Boy, if HE took a picture of HER like that she'd be hysterical and screaming and trying to scratch his eyes out. Poor master. The things he has to put up with all in the name of love."
Happy Rain All Day day, y'all!!!
