I Scored at the Thrift Store – The Moose is Loose

Like any great mystery writer, I know how to write a thrilling cliffhanger.

I know, I know, you’re probably wondering why I haven’t gotten a book deal yet.

I’m sure that’s coming soon but in the meantime, our last edition of I Scored at the Thrift Store ended like this:

I did score one more find that I’ll share next week (hint:  it was once part of a living, breathing animal)!

Since I know the suspense is killing you, your wait is finally over.

Huh, you’re asking?

What is it?

You sound like my hubs.

It certainly was a mystery to him as to why I lugged this giant, gnawed, bone-like thing home.

As for the cliffhanger, hope it lived up to your week long wait.

Stephen King could learn a thing or two from me.

P.S. My daughter asked me to show off her sculpture – it really brings the term doing the funky chicken to a whole new level.

  11. Sweet! You have a sculptor in the family, too! Now, the moose antler….I’m not a fan of the antler craze. I don’t really get it, but my son the sculptor loves it!

  12. Well Kelly, for the first time (there’s always a first) my kuddos are going to your daughter!!!! I love the “funky Chicken”…little one got talent! As for the Antlers, I just can’t get into the whole animal thing I’ve seen in different blogs…but hey…if you are happy I’m happy for you girl! Good for and I’m sure Bambi is growing a bigger rack somewhere in the enchanted forest :)

    Debbie :)
