I have some exciting news! Wednesday, I am going to be the feature on this week's What Would You Do With It Wednesday, over at The Country Chic Cottage! I was totally excited! First, because it is my first feature, EVER!!! Second, because I have the perfect piece to ask "What would YOU do with it???"
I was shopping at a local Goodwill a while back and was coming across all kinds of goodies that were catching my eye and jumping into my cart. I was having a wonderful day with what I like to call My Little Pretties. I rounded a corner and suddenly saw this strange thing sitting there on the shelf looking back at me.
I managed to get out of the store that day with out her, but a few weeks later, I went back to the Goodwill (What can I say? I am a chronic junker and thrift store addict) and the first thing I saw when I walked in, there on the shelves of doom sat this strange little thing, staring at me, almost daring me to buy her. I hadn't given her a second thought, but when I saw her sitting there staring at me again, what was I to do? I had visions of a science project gone wrong, the base kinda reminded me of a mushroom, but I was totally intrigued by her.
I walked over to the shelves of doom and went to pick her up, when I noticed she spun. Oh even better! A spinning mushroom science lab! The entire base sits on a lazy susan of sorts. For some reason, the fact that she spun intrigued me and I just knew I could do something really fun with her. But what? Never one to back down from a challenge, I said "Okay Miss Thing, you are coming home with me." She has been affectionately known as Miss Thing ever since. And for the price, I figured I couldn't go wrong. The tag read $1.50, but it was 50% off day, so I got her for 75 cents.
So, now she had a home, but I had no idea why. I still don't. That is why I am so thrilled to be here today asking all you lovely readers "What would you do with it?" So bring on your witty comments, oh crafty readers of blogland! I can't wait to be inspired by you all! Just leave a comment below or head over to Angie's blog to leave a comment there. Then tune in next Wednesday where I will be showing off what Miss Thing ultimately becomes. I am sure she will be something just fabulous!
Til next time!
