WOYWW164 - Who Dunnit?

It's Wednesday...again!!  If anyone has a way to slow time down...(like to about where it was when we were 10 and it took FOREVER for any big event to arrive), I wish they'd put it in a bottle and sell it.  I'd buy the lot!

Wednesday means it's time for WOYWW164 over at Julia's Stamping Ground across the big pond.  Here's a peek at the worktable top this week...a tooth fairy box almost to completion for a customer and a mess all around that I've managed to get straightened up now.  Does anyone have a foolproof  (that would be me!) way to store unmounted rubber?  I've tried everything.  My notebook panels work until the notebook gets too thick and sometimes the stamps lose their grip and fall off.

I've been terribly amiss and keep forgetting to post these awesome ATC's (my very first) that were a RAK from Eliza of QueenartoypiaThey're just so awesomely creative!  I keep them on my desk where I see them for inspiration...maybe one of these days, I'll give it a try.

This card was a surprise RAK from Tickle a Teapotter Tuesday (SplitcoastStampers)  teapot member, scrappinmama72inpa aka EmilyThe last Tuesday of each month, the Teapotters are sent a secret member by the moderator to send that week's challenge card to.

Isn't this just too sweet?
Emily has added so many details to create a fun card that just makes me smile.

Now for my "Who Dunnit.(hee,hee...not you, Julia!)  I've been growing and nurturing some pineapple plants for 3 years...3 years!  It takes that long for the plants to mature enough to produce single beautiful, sweet pineapple.  I've been watching and waiting for the first one to ripen. Checking each day for that blush of yellow that says it's time to pick.  Here's what I found today:

I am so stinkin' MAD!!  Some critter, picked the pineapple...oh yes, took it right off the plant...tore into it and ate AROUND the core!   Unbelieveable!!!  I have one more out there which I plan to watch like a hawk. 

Our grandson suggested putting a camera in the garden...I'm thinking more like barbed wire, electrical wire, the jaws of death.....
Pin It!

Thanks for showing my Postcard, it looks good from here.

I was horrified when I saw your pineapple as I used to have pinapple plants myself and yes it does take a long time to get the fruits of your labor. I would sit in the garden with a weapon, ready and waiting. You could always put other food out for the nasty critter and put a cage over the pineapple that is still growing.

Oh Charlene,
The Cards are beautiful but the Pineapple story is what made my day and brought a big smile to my face..... I know just how you feel... :)

Tammy said...

Oh, so sorry about the pineapple. How dare the critters help themselves! Hope you are able to save your remaining fruit! :) Happy WOYWW - Tammy #90

Oh no I would be annoyed about the pineapple too - three years..... love those ATCs. For my unmounted rubber stamps I put tacky glue on the back and then store them on a laminated sheet in ring binders. Thanks for visiting me. Sunshine Girl #1

Oh - how annoying about your pineapple! I store my unmounted stamps in a box with dividers for each type - it works for me anyhow.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well Im glad it wasnt me...but I can sure understand the reason for eating it...but how extraordinary to eat around the core like that! Sorry Charlene, I do understand really....but...!!
I love the tooth fairy tin, what a sweet idea.

Love your wonderful ATCs, what a treat to receive those. I do think pineapple is my favorite fruit. So sorry that the animals have eaten it. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. #81
