Trophy Time

Nothing a little silver polish won’t clean up.

I bought myself a trophy.

Actually, it might be an ice bucket, but I am going to pretend it’s a trophy. As someone who has never won a trophy (not even one of those stupid “Great Job Participating in a Non-Competitive T-Ball Team!” plastic trophies they hand out by the dozen) I feel I am entitled to buy my own. And for $2.00 at Goodwill, how could I say no? 

Now, what should the engraving say?

I’m taking a break through the end of August and posting nothing but pictures… Details here.

    I think you need this to be either a “Princess of Craft” award, “Proud Cat Mum” award or “just plain “Aunt Peaches”.

    $2.00! What a deal. You are really opening yourself up to comments now. When we got married in New York City I gave my husband a trophy that said Best Bet. New York Magazine has a section every week with the best of what’s around called Best Bets. I had it hand engraved in the jewelry district. Lost the engraver’s address though. That is really a lost art. My mother was voted Best Complexion in high school. We didn’t have anything like that. One of my decorator friends used to tell a funny joke about “Chic, Fabulous and Divine.” That fits. how about 1st Place,1979 to Present, Life. or Best Life, so far.

    mint toothpaste works as an excellent silver polish without the horrible smell and the chemicals. seriously. try it. you will never go back.
