A Mysterious Surprise

Surprises are foolish things. The pleasure is not enhanced, and the inconvenience is often considerable.
-Jane Austen

Haha! I disagree. I quite like them. I also like mysteries. Let us consider a quote from everyone's favorite strawberry-blonde, surface-diving, trouble-making, Ned Nickerson-dating sleuth.

"Lipstick is not just for looking glamorous;it can be used to signal for help on windows and other surfaces." 
-Nancy Drew

Thank you Nancy.  It is a shame I most often find myself wearing just  cherry chapstick, which cannot be used to write anything.

And here is a surprise mystery for you.

In the last few weeks/days, I have purchased the following things/ingredients.  What crafts and recipes are to come? I know. But I'm not telling.


1. 3 small glasses (they look like tiny wine glasses. is there a word for these?)
2. 1 yd pink fleece
3. A miniature rose bush
4. 1/2 gallon milk
5. A set of children's paint brushes
6. A turquoise placemat
7. A variety of solid color washcloths
8. Plain yogurt
