We have an extra Monday in the month of April, so,  why not celebrate by having a surprise party!! 
What is a What-Not you ask? 
Well, the dictionary at TheFreeDictionary by Farlex .has it as........................
what·not  (hwtnt, hwt-, wt-, wt-)
1. A minor or unspecified object or article. I.E. figurines, glass, china, silver, aluminum, jars, plates, linens, anything that makes a collection       
2. A set of light, open shelves for ornaments I.E. hutch or open cupboard, bakers rack, etagere, 
and according to Wikipedia..................................
what-not is a piece of furniture derived from the French étagère, which was exceedingly popular in England in the first three-quarters of the 19th century. It usually consists of slender uprights or pillars, supporting a series of shelves for holding china, ornaments, trifles, or what not, hence the allusive name. In its English form, although a convenient piece of drawing room furniture, it was rarely beautiful. The early mahogany examples are, however, sometimes graceful in their simplicity.

So, this party will showcase your What-Nots, be it a piece of furniture with your collection in it or just the collection itself. 

Now for info on joining the party check out  pages on Blog Rules and Permalinks
