OK, I now see that this is an Asian lantern. And Carol's Crafts was the first to post that, so she is the winner. Carol, if you get me your mailing info I'll get your prize right out to you.
After reading all the comments, I decided that I had to have another winner. Linda, you have a unique and wonderful way of looking at the world (or at least at a stencil). Your guess as to the identity of said stencil is a tribute to the ability of the human mind to make up stuff.
Check out Linda's comment on my Road Trip posting and see what I mean.
So, Linda, you too need to send me your mailing info.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving a comment.
