    Where is it hiding?

As it is only DH and puppy living with me, we have looked and looked and looked. Can anyone suggest where this tea cup pincushion could have hidden?!? Suggestions wanted!
    This happens every day at our house. Once I lost a watch for over a year. Turns out I had it in my hand when I put some laundry away and left it in the bottom of the drawer. Then there was the time I cleaned out another drawer and found 3 $100 bills I had tucked away and forgotten. Finding money would be nicer than the pin cushion.......!

I laid it on the counter and when I had finished the cleaning I proceeded to replace the element. It wasn't there. I looked absolutely everywhere, even in the waste basket (just in case). That was about 4 months ago and it is still missing. I know if I would throw away the rest, it would show up. Don't despair, I almost have and I hate admitting defeat. Good luck.

    I do one of two things when this happens to me. I walk back into the house the way I did that day. This may help to refresh your memory. The other thing I do, is to fall asleep thinking about it. I wake up in the morning and it's the first thing on my mind. I can walk right to it. I need a well rested brain to make up for the tired one. I like PenniF's way of thinking, too. One of my friend's found her mail on the water heater, downstairs, once. She had no clue how it got there. Good luck! I sure hope you find it!

Can't tell you how many times I've lost them before realizing how this happened.
    Oh my goodness, I do hang them in the top of my shirt. I've looked in the van, but not in the back. I hope they didn't fly onto the ground somewhere. Thank you for sharing.

    Ok, what works for me is retracing my steps. Just think where you went after you opened the door. Maybe, like me, it was the bathroom. Ha, ha! Good Luck!

My children and grandchildren even ask him now, even though they thought I was nuts when I taught them the saying.

    I might misplace $3.00 but not $300!

    Think like a puppy! Having a puppy in the house, that's where I would put my money. You may have to go back to what your puppy was doing when you lost it? What were it's interests? It's favorite place? You probably were ignoring him heartlessly (doing dishes, folding clothes-- perhaps even telling him harshly to get off your clean panties-- and the puppy, w/o even knowing what he was really doing, hid something. Good luck!

    If the puppy has a crate, check it out! BTW, would love to see pictures of your "tea cup pincushions"!

    Try this. It usually works for me. Tony, Tony, look around. Something's lost and can't be found.
