Monday Mischief~More Broken Knick Knacks

It’s been a bit since we’ve had a Monday Mischief with broken household items. Yesterday was a doozy!

I have a old time wash basin stand with a wash basin and pitcher in it that I have had in our 7 year old house in the same spot for the past 7 years and it has been bumped into by the 4 dogs but never tipped over. Now that I only have 3 dogs guess what happened?????



And to think this happened when only 2 dogs were in the house! Which dog do you think did this?????


Wrong! Gman wasn’t the blame for this mischief!

This is what the stand used to look like.

It was in the same spot just different stuff in the pitcher.

Glory was outside (she didn’t want to come in, she rather be out where it is cold) Nellie and Gman were in the house in the kitchen. Glory let out a big bark outside so that set Nellie off and she started barking and running from the kitchen to the living room. I have laminate flooring so when running it’s hard to get traction and then she had to turn a corner to get around the couch to get to the window to see what set Glory into a alarming bark. As she went around the corner she slid right into the stand and over it went! Pieces and parts every where! The mirror came flying out and luckily it didn’t break or 7 more years of bad luck! The stand isn’t made all that sturdy so the top came unattached from the bottom. Being the handy woman I am I got out my screw gun and screws and screwed the two parts back together, then screwed the mirror back on and it is almost good as new. The basin didn’t make it and the pitcher has a nice chunk missing from the back but you can’t see with all the feathers in it.

So this is what it looks like now.

Good as new!

Good as new!

Now you all need to say your sorry for thinking Gman did this one! 🙂

Gambler broke the pink and brown vase, MK broke the blue one.

    Oh no! My parents use to have a wash basin like that. It was gorgeous and they kept it in their room far away from the dogs. I’m not sure what happened to it. I’ll have to ask them!

    Maybe it needs 4 dogs, that things are covered from every side? It’s sad when we lost ancient things, they mostly have a story or a hi-story… I know it’s not the same, but I was very sad too as Easy ate my pony what I’ve had since I was born.

    Oh, sorry Gman… I thought it woulda been you! It’s pretty lucky the mirror didn’t break and the pitcher didn’t end up in more pieces! Looks good as new, in the end!

    Omigoodness! I really love those old pitchers and basins. I’ve always wanted one, but have never had a place to put it. Everything I own has to be functional. Glad you still have the pitcher!

    If I had a nickel for every time I’ve said “Can’t I ever have anything nice around here??” 🙂
    I love those old wash basins and pitchers, I’ve always wanted a set. I’d say you did pretty well at salvaging most of it!
