"If I Can't Have It......

...Nobody in this house can have it!"  That was Tessie this morning...

I asked her what she was talking about... Here's what she replied....Grab a cup of coffee...This could take a while.

I sprayed the floor with matte Mod Podge finish this morning and gathered up a few more things for the shelves and announced that the box was done.

That's when this all started.

Here's her answer.  "Since you won't let me have it, it should go to some nice person that made a comment while you were doing it."

That sounded OK, so I let her go on with her rant.  "Take one last photo of me sitting in the chair and then I will tell you what I have been doing an d what I have in mind..."
"Now that I and the pup are out of the box, take another photo."  Never a please or thank you...Just orders.

"Any comments made from today on won't count.  I have been coming in here and adding to my list each day.  I put the last name on early this morning...I am finished.  Done.  The list is complete." 

At this point, I decided that I needed another cup of coffee, if she was going to continue.

I got it and she started in again.  "To be fair, I didn't duplicate anybody's name...One to a customer, as they say...By the way, who is "they" anyway?"  I am going to check her list to make sure that it is exactly what she says it is.

"As for you, you get to do the packing and shipping.  I will be directing as usual.  Some of the stuff is going to have to be fastened down.  Leave some spaces on the shelves for the person that gets it to add a couple of their own things."

She went on and on about how hard she worked to finish the box...It must have been when I was asleep and she must have undone everything that she did before I got back...

I will boil it down for you.  Tessie made a list of everyone that commented and one of you is going to be contacted for a snail mail address to send it to.  Short and sweet.

The drawing will be by tomorrow.

See you then.

Katie is right, everyone needs a little Tessie. I'd be afraid of knocking her out every now and then...Great job on the box, Casey. Your flock of followers get more than tips on minis from you!

And, I'm glad I made a few comments...fingers crossed!

Dear ol' Tessie. As I have said in a previous comment, I could really do with a Tessie to keep me organised and challenged! Thanks for the wonderful surprise of a surprise giveaway. Best of luck to all of your commenters. Someone is going to be very lucky indeed. The box is lovely.
