All these and more tell the history of the plan-chest acquired at auction by my husband who knew I needed one but had no idea of the space available to put it. Took a while but he has ceased offering to clean it up a bit.
And Patricia was on the verge of cleaning up this week, since at first read all her offerings were winners, but ultimately, despite my declaring a tie between ‘Persona Non Grata’ and ‘Crowning Glory’ , she has to share the No.1 spot with Rosie for her ‘Normal is overrated.’
Thank you all for your magnificent contributions and comments.
