Have ya' ever seen something that you just had to have ..and when ya' got it , was so disappointed ??
Then you know how I felt this past week..
Yep!! Disappointment.... big time !!.
I've been looking for some butter molds with a pineapple design on them... and was browsing through Ebay Primitives and found one and without researching it thoroughly, I bid on it..
well, i waited it out and after raising my bid a couple times, I finally won it...
OH HAPPY DAY !!
a pineapple butter mold...
Well in my search , I ran across another one that was smaller and had some painting on the handle... oh I can cover that up .. cause I didn't like the bright flowers on it..
No siree !... no flowers on a prim butter mold ..
well... yeah, you're right.. I bid and it was a small bid and wasn't up for about four days, so I forgot all about bidding and soon in my emails I got this ...
Congratulations from Ebay...
you guessed it ... I won the ugly little floral butter mold....
Well when i received them in the mail later, I quick came home to open the packages...
( which seemed rather small to me )
but I opened them and ..... wooah !! this can't be all there is to this thing... where's the handle..so I go through all the many tons of wrapping paper... and .... no handle..
Disappointment # 1
Ok on to the next even smaller package..
and to my utter disappointment.. here before my eyes is this.... "eensy-weensy" ugly strawberry covered butter mold..
Oh NO !! Why couldn't it have at least been a pineapple...painted on there !!
well they did have the pineapple design cut out on bottom... if you had a magnifying glass to look for it with..
The flat one was large enough that you could tell what it was.. Oh JOy !!
Well, I'm still gonna hunt for a
" bigger, better mousetrap"
If anyone knows where to find a really
nice, inexpensive pineapple
butter mold ..
tell me quick.. before I head back to Ebay
Maurine don't give up... no siree !!
She's still on a search ...
so until next time, here's searchin'
