mrpeenee Sweepstakes

Standard

Diane von Austinburg, god love her, blew back into town last week to support us through the trials of Thanksgiving. Believe me when I tell you we were giving plenty thanks for her, not the least was for her delicious butternut squash bread pudding.


Of course we hit the very best thrift stores.

Alas, we scored ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, except a pair of charming little saucers, one of which I promptly broke.
We did unearth this bizarre oddity.


Diane has urged me to throw it into a competition here. The best guess what it might be wins. The prize: I will personally go back to Thrift Town and if it’s still there (chances seem good,) I’ll snap it up and send it to the winner.
Hoo Hoo.
Second place will win houseboy Vantius Olivier.

To save time I have already declared myself as second place winner. Thank you.
