A Bunch Of Random Nonsense

Now, I am NOT
saying you are 
DUMB or anything 
but if you popped in to
read this after reading
my title...well, I am 
just a TAD worried 
about you.
Random Nonsense #1
Only in Green Bay, WI
would you see a creche made
out of stolen signs...
(don't ask how I know that)
and NO this is NOT on
my property...nor do I know
who this belongs to...lol

Random Nonsense #2
What is behind this curtain?
Christmas storage-
I worked on it ALL DAY LONG
yesterday.
Before:
Now: Areas have been 
flip-flopped and I am 75% done.
After:
Halloween & Spring
Random Stuff #3
What do you get when you
send someone 
(because they are the turkey whisperers)
a priceless
TURKEY PAINTING?
Okay- it wasn't priceless.
I paid $1.99-yes-you 
read that right- $1.99
before it ever hit the sales
floor-I saw it just inside the 
door and someone marked it
for me.
Anyway- what do you get
when you send it to 
SOMEONE?
Well, if you are lucky you
get THIS!
A handmade walnut 
CUTTING BOARD
made from wood cut from
their own property.
Can you see the live edge on it?
It feels like silk.
It also had some "tools"
I love the handles on these-
they look like antiques, don't they?
Okay-there were also several
Starbucks items in there
(she knows me well)
and a darling little night light..
and some candy...
(the naughty girl)

Random Thing  #4
You read about the 
TURKEY WHISPERERS
above?
And you have heard of a
HORSE WHISPERER..
That's MY favorite horse whisperer.
And sometimes...when I am 
feeling like I am talking to 
someone that is too 
stubborn to listen
(names not mentioned here
 to protect the guilty)
I have decided to heed the
advice that 
gave me the other day.
Wise advice, indeed,
don't you agree?
I laughed right out loud when 
I read it.

Hope you have a blessed
wonderful Sunday..
No more random nonsense today.
Come back tomorrow for
more of my
REGULAR NONSENSE!

  7. That sign is priceless, Diana! I must say that you have WAYYYY more seasonal stuff than I do. Makes me feel like less of a hoarder. LOL Happy Sunday!!!

  8. Wow, I guess I am sad because I don't have a garage and have to corral all of my holiday stuff into one cabinet. It makes cleaning up easy but my house does not look very festive.

  9. Can you come help me in my basement rubbermaid jungle?

  11. You totally deserve those beautiful gifts -- love the stainless! I think it's so great that you have those wonderful spaces for storage, and you are doing a great job of getting them organized. This OCD organizing junkie would have a "field-day" playing here!

    Hope 2013 is off to a great start for you!

  13. You are such a hoot. You really were quite productive yesterday. I need to be productive today because we played so much outside on the outdoor ice rink! Love the handmade walnut cutting board. That silverware is quite charming too. Have a blessed Sunday!

  16. Good Afternoon Diana, I loved your "nonsense" post....it was full of fun. You are amazing, I cannot believe you cleared your room so quickly, you must have been exhausted by the end of the day. I loved your walnut chopping board and the cheese knives were beautiful, what a lovely gift. Here's to much more wonderful "nonsense".
    Best Wishes, Daphne

  18. I guess it's time to quit trying to explain myself. Those stupid people just won't get it, now, will they?
    And now I see why you can do such beautiful decorating for every season. Just look at all that storage! WoW! I don't think I'd ever get it organized. Good luck to you with that project. I hope they guys around there are willing to help out with the heavy lifting.

  24. Love, love this post, Diana. I love random posts - I've done more than a few in my day. That cutting board is gorgeous (so is the turkey painting) and good for you for organizing all your Christmas stuff!!!

    My favorite horse whisperer, too.

  27. Hi Diana, I enjoyed your post today and I am glad you survive yesterday. I had to laugh at Tete's sign. I wonder what would happen if I hung that on my office door. Just a thought. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

  34. Okay, are you super woman in disguise??? How did you already get 75% of that done. I didn't even get one bed completely cleared off today.I think I am definitely too easily distracted. That's my story and I'm sticking to it :)
    Hugs,
    Laura

  36. That's right! You are not the jackass whisperer! I quit that job...you'd better, too.
    Now Diana, you must be aware that a title about nonsense is going to appeal to most of us here!
    I stripped the bed and started the washing machine. I hope I have the energy to put the sheets in the dryer.
    You are Wonder Woman.

  38. Diana, I am going to borrow the words of that sign to use at work...........we have a lot of uh not so smart people there. Especially in upper management *wink*

    ReplyDelete
  39. fun post!! loved reading it! I loved that handmade cutting board! lucky you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love your random nonsense, Diana. You are just too much fun. The cutting board is a jewell. Pat yourself on the back for sticking to the basement cleanup!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'd say that is a bunch of random awesomeness!!
    I want the cutting board. But really, it is too pretty to cut on. Right??
    I think you deserve a very long break after all that work on the Christmas stuff. Do you ever think that it wold be easier to just leave it up all year long?
    No?
    Me neither.
    XO

  42. I laughed out loud too! Story of my life!

    ReplyDelete
  43. OH I would love to have an area just for holiday storage like that! Love the cutting board!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nice gift..love the cutting board..You had your hands full with all that STUFF and getting it organized..Good grief..Did you throw anything away?..Guess I know the answer to that..

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, I love that whisperer saying. I have got to use that one. My favorite is when Bob asks me if I am talking to myself. I reply "Yes, sometimes that's the only intelligent conversation I have, all day".
    You have been working hard. Looking good down there. The cutting board is awesome. The turkey painting is "some".
    Love to you, ginger

  46. Oh Diana, you are hilarious....

    I think our basement is starting to look like that, much to my husbands concern.

  47. Well that sure is random, Diana! So funny about the creche. I have a feeling those people also stole their three wise men! Looks like you are making some headway in your basement, yeah! And Tete's advice is too funny, I'll have to remember that one!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Diana, if you are the one posting stuff you call 'nonsense' then it's worth coming over to read!! Always entertaining :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, girlie, I am
    awed and inspired
    by your organization!
    {And just a bit jealous,
    too!!!} Isn't it a great
    feeling to get that
    stuff organized? NOT
    what I'd call nonsense,
    at all : )

    Happy Sunday,
    xo Suzanne

  50. The stolen signs crack me up...John was in codes enforcement for the city and he was forever collecting illegal signs. He was never this "creative!" ha

  51. Love visiting your blog, because I leave rejuvenated! :)

  52. Oh my gosh - I loved this post!!! hahah That was an awesome turkey print, but WOW - the cutting board and knives, etc., holy cow - what a NICE (trade?) (thank you?)...

    Love your cardinal curtain - you have been very busy organizing! I've been tackling some stuff in the house, but have not had the courage to tackle the downstairs Christmas storage area!

    Have a beautiful week!!!!

  53. You got me thinking which in itself could be dangerous. I should take pictures just stuff, you know stuff you stack, and can't seem to find a place for.
    I have a lot of nonsense!
    WoW, I open the door and it was a little shocking. But so normal. All my stuff is in the barn. I tried to let all of it go, but my nature is to keep things. Being a crafter is bad news in my house. Storge that is handy is hard to find.
    I am so glad you laught at my Wal*mart story...Love and hugs, Mary

  54. Hi Diana, Great sign!! LOL Like the one my grandpa used to say, "findem dumb, leavem dumb"
    Hey your storage is really well organized. Great idea to use colored tubs.
    Love the cutting board and gorgeous knifes!!
    Going on to read more.
    Hugs, CM

  55. I love the stolen signs Nativity - what a hoot! Wow! That was a really nice gift you got in return for the turkey pic! Love the handles on the tools too! You did a great job organizing and flipping your storage area! I love the Jackass Whisperer - made me laugh out loud too! You're always so much fun! Hugs, Leena
