My Meanest Comment in 2011...But, Oh So Funny!!!


I wanted to end 2011 with a good laugh!

Last March I posted about a gun rack I transformed into a plate rack


I LIKED the way it turned out


Now, wait for it......You'll get a "Bang" out of this!


First I have to tell you, I had tons of Google hits on this post and I  think it was the Boys wearing camouflage  looking for a gun rack and one of them did not like what I did with a gun rack!

The comment came in as Anonymous....Surprise.  I didn't publish it, but I did save it just for you!

Here it is just as I received it bad spelling and all!!

Of all the things to do with a gun rack... Why would you 

turn it into little miss muffets` half assed attempt at 

decorariting an old ladies senior home! Forget the plates 

and load it with depends, cause the only person with taste 

that bad is going to need them!



on 7/6/11



Are you snorting with laughter?   

Now, I subscribe to the saying "If you don't have anything 

nice to say...Don't say anything at all"

But, I got the last laugh, I sold the plate rack to a   


20 something hip girl  



....And from what I could tell she was not wearing DEPENDS 

AND SHE CERTAINLY DID NOT LIVE IN AN


Old Ladies Senior Home 



Ok, so I had one bad comment, but I want to thank you for 



4721 Kind, sincere, and inspiring comments I received in




2011




Happy New Years




And




Happy Creating!

This is priceless Carol! I'm so glad you saved it so we could all get the "last laugh." I love all of your projects including this very clever transformation!

Debbiedoo's blogging and blabbing said...

I Love that you shared this Carol, it is worth the last laugh! It was a cool idea to say the least!

Cottage and Broome said...

I would have wrestled that hip 20 something girl for that piece! I love it, a great do over. Have a wonderful New Years, Laura

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I could not imagine HOW you could have gotten even ONE mean comment...but now it is so clear! How funny! I'm off to tell hubby to come look at my computer! We could use a laugh today...especially since we ARE senior citizens! lol I'm going to have to give this a 'think' and see if I can remember any mean comments in my inbox...anonymous, of course! ♥♥♥

Ruby Jean said...

Oh so FUNNY!!!! I love the way the Gun Rack came out..I don' think I will ever look at one the same again.. :) And to think some 20yr old hip girl bought it... Maybe it was Mr. Anonymouses Daughter.. Wouldn't that be a HOOT!!! well it looks like you went out with a "BANG" and I look forward to seeing what Creative things you have in store for us in this coming year!!!
Happy New Year!!

red.neck chic said...

*giggle*
LOL!
LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it's fantastic and there is one lucky 20somethin' out there NOT wearing depends!!!

I'm rolling...

I hope you have the MERRIEST of New Years full of giggles and belly laughs.

Thanks for the laugh!

Micki said...

I love the gunrack...oops...platerack. I am sure it looks a lot nicer hanging on the wall that it did filled with ugly guns! (And I am not an old lady living in a senior home wearing Depends either) :)

MARY PERNULA said...

Your gun rack transformation is just awesome, my husbands agrees to. The poor comment came from someone that has not class, and most of all taste and imagination, how sad, Hugs Mary

Diane said...

Wow of wow....your right.... nasty words, but it was pretty funny! I think the gun/plate rack turned out beautifully, like most of the things you do! Happy New Year my friend, Diane

Hannele said...

hello and happy new year,you have a wonderful blog :)
i`m from finland :)

Jann Olson said...

Carol, I am laughing till my sides ache. How nasty can one person be. I've been lucky so far I guess. The meanest comment I received was that I had put the napkins on the wrong side on my tablescape (which I did, senior moment I think). They did end the comment with, "pretty tablescape though'. Really I do know how to set a table. Don't ask me where my mind was last Thanksgiving morning. By the way, love the (gun) plate rack! Wishing you a New year full of only nice posts.

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Oh, Carol, I'm laughing so hard I think I might have had an accident in my Depends!!

kristiB said...

I think that person is obviously Very Ignorant! You creativity and originality continue to inspire me as well as Tons of others!!! So happy you sold this to someone with impeccable taste, Happy New year to you Carol! Can't wait for the next post ;)

Graceful Rose said...

Carol, help I need the Depends I am laughing so hard!!!! What a great to end the year. So funny! Keep the inspiration coming, I love all of your projects. Happy New Year to you.

Polkadot-pretties said...

hahahahahah how funny..

Some people have no appreciation for pretty things, good on you for seeing the funny side....

I love your projects they are sooooo inspiring

Terra said...

Oh dear, well you definitely won that one, since it found a home with a young gal. How cool that you counted your positive comments to thank us. I think I will count my blog's comments, that is a great idea.

Cindy@OldTimePickers said...

Snort...ya truly need a sense of humor to blog!

Sue at Serendipity said...

Amazing how many ill bred people hide behind "Anonymous"! A gorgeous transformation, a lucky purchase for the young lady and pity for the ignorant jerk who has nothing better to do than try to bring negativity to this community! Absolutely hilarious!!

Honey at 2805 said...

Hilarious!

Meadowsweet Cottage said...

Poor Mr. Anonymous--destined to end his days sitting in unchanged Depends at the rattiest care center in his area. And all because of one unkind comment in his younger days. Karma's a beeyotch.

At least we got a good laugh out of it!

camp and cottage living said...

Carol
That was the best laugh I've had in a long time!!
Thanks so much for sharing it.

Donna~One Simple Country Girl said...

Oh great! Now I gotta go find myself a Depends product cause I think I just peed my pants from laughing so hard!!! Seriously, I think it turned out awesome and I'm glad you sold it for profit!!

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Carol,
That is a riot!
Clearly by the comment itself, you can tell the mentality of the person who wrote it!

What a hoot!!

Hugs,
Debbie

Tiki said...

ok that was just tooo funny!! laughing with tears streaming...
At Christmas my best friend and her husband stopped by and she hadn't seen any of my projects or shabby chic/romantic remodel on my house. Well she commented..."You are getting old, Tiki and you definitely have too much time on your hands." Why do people think that just cause you love something feminine and pretty you are automatically old?? well bring it on...old must be beautiful!!!!!
love the post and more power to girls who want to live like girls!!!

Nancy said...

Carol,
I'm gonna need depends now after reading that! I am still cracking up! Not only his comment, but everything you had to say...priceless! This is just too hysterical!

Thanks for the best laugh I've had a in a long time!

Nancy

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Ha-ha-ha! awesome! Thanks for sharing!

I saw a blog the other day that was JUST for bad comments a few girls recieved and then the girls would reply and all the "good" commenters would, too. I thought it was a great way to deal with the web haters! ♥

kelly said...

Carol,
This is hilarious. You have such a sense of humour and it really shines through in some of your posts. It is worth having a good laugh at the ridiculous comment. Another excellent transformation project. I think we all should transform a gun rack (with the key word as gun rack) and really annoy Mr Anonymous if he is looking again.
Happy New Year

Kelly

Sharon said...

That was hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

Can't wait to see what you're going to do in the New Year!

Mary Ellen said...

Carol thanks for the laugh! What a comment to leave!

I love the plate rack !

Karen said...

I am so sorry they don't care for your "decorariting". What goofballs!

laurie said...

Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

I usually don't say things like this on comment boards, but HOLY CRAP!!!! That is hilarious Carol! You definitely have the last laugh on that guy! So funny! (*_*)

Chris said...

Too funny! Maybe he should get a look at the 'old ladies' of today. We sure as heck aren't like his Nana. Or yours. Or mine.....this will keep me smiling all evening.

GARAGE SALE GAL ~ Deb's Earthly Delights said...

LOL!!!
Happy New Year!!!
I think the gun/plate rack turned out lovely!
Guess it "depends" on who is buying it!!! LOL!!
Warmly,

Stampin D Amour said...

Carol - that was a real good one worth the laughs, indeed!!! {LOL!}

You did such an amazing job! I would never had even known that it originally was even an ugly, old gun rack.

Happy New Year my friend! xo

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Mercy...maybe they should have learned first of all about spell check! how dumb...but 1 out of the many...I say you are doing just fine!!

Jane said...

That's a great story and I did get a good laugh!! You did an awesome job on that transformation and I think it's a much better plate rack than a gun rack!
Happy New Year!!
Jane

Sue@Uniquely Chic said...

Haha...couldn't wait since your last post to read the mean comment and no surprise from anonymous. I love your "gun cabinet" so much better after. Happy New Year!!!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Priceless! I remember your original post about the gun rack. You've had me looking at them in a totally different way. Just hilarious!

Paula said...

You go girl! What a rude jerk "Anonymous" is! I love the idea of changing a gun rack into a plate rack - why not make something lovely if you have the talent! I love your blog (and your sense of humor)!

Thanks for your nice comment on Camp and Cottage Living re: the prayer shrine I made for Kimberly!

Come by and visit me at Home in Douglas!

Suzann said...

Hello Carol,
Some people just can't say something nice can they?
Love the plate rack you made so much better than the gun rack.
Hope "Anonymous" visits your blog again to see all these comments!!!
Many wishes for your New Year. Need to visit your shop again soon
Suzann ~xoxo~

Laurie said...

That is hilarious!!!!

Oh my goodness, that is too funny! I guess you really riled him up! lol

Some people just can't see beauty even when it's right in front of them. He was expecting a green camouflage, ugly MAN thing. Soooo hilarious. Thanks for the laugh. Happy New Year.

That was kind of mean. Glad you can laugh at it!!I agree it was probably a man that wrote it. I think the gun/plate rack is awesome!! I love everything you do and thank you for sharing how you do them..hugs, Bev

What a cute way to end the year! Cheers!

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

Oh my gosh, so funny. I actually almost spit out my sip of coffee when I read about the Depends. Well, I love the gun rack, er pardon me - plate rack. I am going to be your newest follower. I think that guy who left the comment pretty well showed his level of intelligence and his personality in his comment - so consider the source. That being said, men will be men and women will be women, and thank God for our differences. I guess I would be a little concerned if this man had written gushing over how lovely the gun rack turned out. Have a wonderful new year. I am looking forward to more of your posts. Please come visit me at my blog if you ever get a spare minute between projects!

Chris said...

the plate rack is gorgeous. and if it weren't for Detrol I'd be wearing diapers.

Anonymous said...

Bwhahahaha.....i think you're on to something. all bloggers should post their random hateful comments for the rest of us to enjoy!! what a hoot. keep up the good work. may your new year be cheery and bright.

Cathy V said...

Haha!!! Thanks for the laugh! The comment in and of it's self is funny but the fact that you sold it to a young and hip woman makes the whole thing, (the project and sarcastic comment) even sweeter!

imsteelefullofscrap said...

Oh my we both had a chuckle over that this morning but hey he may have an idea take it to the senior center homes and they may have you install one in each room just for that purpose then post you turned a millionaire off of his post!! Lol thank you for the chuckle

lynn said...

such a great post! wishing you a wonderful new year, carol and that rack is darling:)

Patti said...

Ha ha! What a good one. I would LOVE to get a load of who wrote that ditty. thanks for the laugh and thanks also for all the great posts all year!

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

I am shaking my head at the ignorance and bad manners that poster has. But then you can tell by the grammar they probably didn't get past sixth grade....I feel sorry for them and the people that have to be around them. BUT I am overjoyed for us old depend-able ladies with the awful taste because we looooove everything you create. (())

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I loved the gunrack turned depends holder! I mean plate rack! How funny~sure it was a guy who never should be in a relationship. Good for you for putting the correct spin on this one!

Shelley Davis said...

I love that. Obviously the only taste that person had was in their mouth. What prompts people to say anything if they don't like it? That person should have just had a laugh to themselves if that was how they felt.

I love your blog. Thanks for a wonderful year!

Blessings,
Shelley

HeartVintageDesign said...

I laughed so hard tears came to my eyes. Thanks for sharing : )

SavannahGranny said...

Thanks for the laugh! I choose to think this was purchased by Anonymous'
wife. Wouldn't that be payback. Happy New Year.

Holly said...

How funny, Carol!! I feel sad for him that he didn't have your decorating sense! I love what you did with the rack!!
Blessings to you!!

Joyce's Journey said...

Love it!!! So glad you saved it to share with us! I'm coming to visit you on January 7th if your shop is open then. My friend and I are going to visit her daughter who goes to UCF. Can't wait to see your shop! I hear it's a really cute area. Cannot wait!!!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Denise at PinkPostcard. said...

That is awesome!!!! Ha ha ha! I love what you did with it too! Thanks for your comment on my sign. You crack me up. I'm so ready for regularly scheduled programming too :)

Debbie said...

Oh goooooood grief. I'm glad you left it spelling and all.

Depending on the hormones, I would have either laughed or cried. But even if I cried, at some point, I would still have laughed.

I take it there is no IQ test for a gun license?
Just sayin'...

Happy New Year, Carol. Thanks for making the last one so fun of creative energy.

The Bathtime Team said...

No doubt left by a man,lol, probably terrified his wife will turn his gun rack into something beautiful!

Had left a message but it disappeard... this would very 'in' here in England and look perfect in a 17th to 18th cottage in a pretty little English village!

Hope you add it to our linky party just started!

What are depends? I'm from old blighty ...

Happy New Year!

Blessings and friendship!

Okay, that was a really terrible thing to say, but I couldn't help laughing. Someone really had *their* depends in a bunch!!

Well I think it was beautiful and wish I had seen it when you had it for sale! I love your blog and keep up the great job!

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

Carol!
oH! MY GoodNESS!
That was hilarious... I remember seeing that gun rack. I personally loved it. I'm currently looking for a stand up gun rack to transform into a full length PANTRY FOR MY KITCHEN...complete with chicken wire and maybe some burlap... Oh yes, a girl has got to have a cute place to store her cast iron skillets and her canned beans!
THIS DID MAKE ME LAUGH... so funny.
Imagine...googling Gun Rack and you get this cute little transformed beauty... adorable.
...
Hey Anonymous--
thanks for the chuckle.
Pat

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

OMG that is so funny Carol! That's one bizarre comment.

I love your gun rack turned into a plate rack. The tin and rose are extra special.

Marje said...

Got to wonder what a gun-rack loving guy?gal? would be doing poking around in polka dot closet anyway?
I admire your discretion in not showing this rude comment in the first place. And also admire that you can give it the importance it deserves…..none…..

You surely know how to turn a sow's ear into a silken shelf…… well done.

Susan Clayton said...

Too funny!

Leslie Lim said...
