On Monday, I received a mystery box in the mail. Fortunately, it wasn't ticking.
Readers, as you know, I sometimes link to other blogs or wax enthusiastic about something, but it's never to benefit myself -- at least not consciously.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the box to discover this fabulous tomato pincushion -- a gift from Sunni at A Fabulous Stitch for....I'm not sure what; I must have mentioned her here at MPB, hopefully not in a disparaging way.
Folks, if MGM's Gilbert Adrian designed a pincushion this would be it -- am I right?
I must say that while I'm more accustomed to your standard hothouse tomato pincushion, Sunni's is a full-fledged beefsteak. Seriously though, this vegetable -- or is it a fruit -- is so charming, I'm loath to stick pins in it!
But that's not all! Thoughtful Sunni also sent me this beautiful adjustable dog collar!
Actually, don't tell Sunni, but I think I'm going to use this as a wrist pincushion.
Now it wouldn't really look right if now I said, Go buy one of Sunni's pincushions, which you can purchase here or here, so I'm just going to thank Sunni and leave it at that.
Friends, I can't remember why I ever bought an RF Modulator, but it had something to do with hooking up an old DVD player (which I no longer own), to an even older TV (which I no longer own). Today I will no longer own this RF Modulator.
Why, oh why, did I have this sitting around? Hopefully it was a gift.
Or this. Don't their songs all sound the same?
I found this black plastic wand sitting in a cabinet and had no idea what it was.
But I figured it out -- behold! Why do I own two cheap tripods? Later today I will own just one.
