General Federation of Women’s Clubs holds this event every year. 2010’s entry was just a plain old garden variety chair with a corner carefully whacked out of the seat to allow a walnut storage cabinet to be front and a little to the left.

Each item in the auction included a gift certificate for food or an actual box lunch (it was a Fourth of July event) so the cabinet served well from the beginning.

I don’t mind the question at all!

I have donated things to these sorts of fundraisers over the years and make it a point not to find out what they sell for. I find my joy in giving remains pure that way.

I go to the receptions if possible and do the requisite schmoozage. There’s almost always coffee and cookies sometimes peculiarly shaped vegetable parts which become delivery vehicles for ranch-variant dips.

Not sure whether to LMAO or revel in it’s artistic beauty. Either way it is a great piece for a good cause I am sure.

I thought these two objects might have occupied the same volume of space in different universes but one seems to have emerged into ours. But which one?

The answer, Martin, is the One in the Middle.

Now, what century was I trying to get to?
