Thread: missing pewter...

    missing pewter...

    I thought I would take a picture of my latest find for the hallmark thread so I left it in the computer room only to find it had gone missing the next day

    it was found later that day on the dinner table...

    note to self : always drive over your finds with the truck before taking them into the house...

    I imagine that something else is going to get dented shortly.

    She's just saving it for you so that at some point when you really need it, it will still be there. Tell her Thank You, and keep looking.

    She's just storing it for you. It does make inexpensive gifts.

    I'd find one of stainless and swap it out. You may need to water the dog for a while after the swap.

    Be sure to make your reservations at TheDogHouse.InTheBackYard.Net before swapping it out.

    Yup, I've had that happen also.There are still a couple candlestick holders in the house that I KNOW will be noticed if they came up missing. Kiss that goodbye.
