All Astonishment....WINS!

The winner of Chafing Dish Price Challenge 2008 is MrsMama!!  Go check out this woman's photos, they are amazing!!!

This loverly silver chafing dish was purchased for the unbelievable price of $2.50!!

I bought it because I need pretty dishes to serve warm appetizers in for an event I volunteered to 'cater' at our local winery.  The winery is hosting a private evening of wine and appetizers for a party of twelve.  It was one of the offerings at my kids' school auction.  Some wonderful person paid $150.00 for the evening.  

So, MrsMama, I'll email you to see what your hearts desire is in pottery these days and hopefully your answer will be, "Oh, I've always wanted a spittoon!"  

We are finally having so decent weather, so I'm going outside to clean off the porch.  It looked like this a few days ago.....

I'd like to blame that mess on my kids, but it's the dog.  Preacher drags all kinds of stuff out of the barn and from Ramone's house and deposits it on the porch.  He's a bit like having a toddler.

April, I have a 6 year old boy, so I definitely could use a spittoon! Thank you. :)

Hi April,
I just tagged you with a meme on my blog. If you don't want to play, please don't feel obligated.
Take care, Carol said...

just so we're clear on this, i'm having a tempter tantrum that i didn't win.

Good grief! What's with the entrails all over your front porch?

"All kinds of stuff"? I should say...

I can't believe I didn't win. (stomping feet and whining like a spoiled child) I was so close too.

Can you post some more photos of Preacher?
