Guessing Game Winner announced

Mental Pause Mama is the winner of the Weekend Guessing Game with her correct guess of CORK. It's actually the cork to one of my favorite wine bottle stoppers, pictured above. I just like the sparkly little gems in it. The monkey's having a good time sitting up there, too.
Mental Pause Mama (Lauren) lives in Connecticut and has been one of the original people to begin leaving comments on this blog and each time I see her name and the other now-familiar names, I'm glad that people aren't just stopping by, leaving a comment and never returning. It's nice to hear from those that continue to return.
I loved some of the guesses this week. Yummy things like raisin bread, date muffins, cookie, cobbler. (I'm getting hungry). A very unhappy Pillsbury Dough Boy on crack was really funny, Judy. And TJ's burning question about whether or not eating cork would turn you into a cork addict? Only if it's the really good cork, tj. The kind from Thailand, or something.
So congratulations, Laura. Be warned, however. You will soon be famous. Scads and scads of people will see this post and they'll see that little monkey and they'll think of you! Sorry about that.

Congratulations Laura,

I was going to guess cork also, and then I checked the comments and only one person thought of it.Oh well. It looked kinda wood grainy, but mostly I thought it looked like a smiley face. Eyes,nose,mouth, it was a really good shot Kate.

Your big clue was, this is not edible, but only one person paid attention to that. All the other guesses made me hungry and I think my rear end got bigger thinking about it. Yeah, that happens.

Cool wine stopper. I love it.

I did sort of think it looked a bit like a piece of sawed wood, but went with mushroom instead. Oh well...congrats to Laura!

...Cute stopper too! I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this Kate but I'm pretty sure that the scads and scads of folks that see that lil' monkey from now on are still gonna think of ;o)
