Congratulations Deb aka Femme1. You won by a clear majority — taking more than 50% of the votes. Super Tuesday hopefuls only wish they had your mo! To remind everyone, here’s what F1 said when she entered these delights:
The brow stencil I found in a thrift shop, and for 25 cents, I couldn’t resist. I love the two little safety pins included to pin the stencils on the pink ribbon, and the name of the company–BandWagon, Inc.
So why did the eyebrow stencils win: Probably because all of us women know how ridiculous the whole eyebrow thing is. Can you imagine actually using these?
Actually, this is a Regent Sheffield 19-piece Treasure Chest! To give you some background so’s you understand just how precious this is, a friend of my husband’s gave them to us. Seems her husband picked them up at the Stockbridge dump – a famous hunting ground for treasure hunters. Mint in box even! Honestly, even though they came from the dump, I think they are so cool!
And also to celebrate, Femme1, a YouTube clip of two dames with nice eyebrows indeed — Peggy Lee and Dinah Shore, from Dinah’s show circa 1959.
Enjoy, Femme 1 — if you can bear to take them out of the box, which I could not. Such is the problem with MIB.
And… many thanks to all our entrants! Keep your eyes peeled, everyone, for useless but wonderful finds all year long. We’ll have another contest #2 in December!
