Lucky Friday the 13th Winner!

Who said Friday the 13th is and unlucky day? Jackie over at Jackie's Stitches is the lucky winner of my What Is It contest and Rouenneries Giveaway! Congratulations, Jackie! While she didn't quite guess the right answer, many of you did! I love how creative you all were with your guesses! I think my favorite one was that it might be a clock pendulum! Here is "what it is" below - a toilet flusher handle!!


We have a half bath in our home that we devote entirely to fly fishing! I have collected all sorts of vintage and new fly fishing and outdoor themed items for this small bathroom! It was orginially Mr. Squash's idea - I took it and ran! We've had a lot of fun with it and I can't wait to get the bathroom at the Squash House painted and decorated! There is only one problem with this new little trinket - it doesn't fit the toilet in the fishing bathroom at the Squash House! I was so disappointed when I went to install it - that one and the one in the master bath have side flushers! The only one in the house that would accept it is in the lower level bathroom! Oh well, at least it fits somewhere in the house!

The rest of our time until we move will be devoted to more packing and training my replacement at work! We finally had the appraisal on our house and will be closing sometime between the 20th and 25th! Moving day for me and Sophie the wonder cat is December 1st. Mr. Squash will stay behind to greet the movers on Dec 1st and join me and Sophie the next day! Not long now!

Well how about that. DH said it was a sink stopper ... guess he was close.

Thanks for the fun.

Ulla said...

Congratulations to the winner! Your flusher is completeley different from what I'm used to, so no wonder even Mr K didn't guess right. I hope you will find a fish flusher for the fly fishing bath as well.

Well isn't that a nifty item. I would never have guessed that, that's what it was.

Congrats to your winner! I was right but not lucky. :-)

Jackie said...

Congrats to Jackie! Now that would put a smile on your face every time you flush.

The fish is so unique! Sorry it doesn't fit the bathroom you wanted it to but at least it's in the house. Good luck with the move. It will be nice to get this done before Christmas.

Candace, I'm thrilled to have won!

Love the toilet flusher! Can't wait to see the fly fishing bathroom. What a perfect place for a fishing theme!

Congratulations to the Winner. And thanks to the Squash House family for such a fun contest. Only problem....now I want a fish toiled flush handle, but have no idea where one goes to get one. I don't think Handyman or Lowes carries anything so cute.

Wouldn't these make delightful Christmas gifts?

A bathroom devoted to fly fishing is so clever! Good luck on the move; I know you're excited.

Mary said...

Happy, happy happy moving day. It will be here and gone before you know it.

Karen said...

Oh that's disappointing that it didn't fit in the fishing bathroom, but it is very original. I'm glad you found a place to put it!

If Sophie the Wonder Cat needs to contact Kanga the Wonder Cat, she'll be hiding under the bed during the move. She is very upset Sophie is moving and doesn't understand it's just a new house.

that is the cutest toilet lever ! My daughter & son-in-law have a car shifter for their toilet handle. He's a car guy.

Kaaren said...

Oh, so close now, Candace. And you can finally finish the packing in ernest.

Congratulations to Jackie! My guess was correct but no cigar...I mean fabric.

Congrats to Jackie. That fish looks pretty good sitting there.

We also fish and my husband is a flyfisherman but the thing is we also have a flyfisher bathroom, over our doorway we hung a fish rod that we don't use any longer and we have a shower curtain and several other stuff....love fishing.
