Typically, DOP involves an object that the person had just been using or that they invariably keep in one particular place. When they go to use the object, it is gone. The person looks high and low for the object, often getting others involved in the search, but it cannot be found. A short time later, or perhaps the next day, the person is surprised to find the object returned to the spot where it is always kept or in some other obvious place where the search should have found it.

Being pagan, my wife always attributed this to a puck.
This does happen to me with relative frequency. When it has happened to me it has almost always involved shiny, visibly appealing objects. Once I was using a lighter in the car, put in the glove compartment when finished with it, an hour later it was gone. Tore the car apart looking for it, found nothing, bought a new lighter, one week later the missing lighter was sitting in the middle of the driver's side seat when I went to leave for work.
Rings, nice pens, collectible coins, have all gone missing only to re-appear. Has always been a mystery.
Your situation is different though, maybe your house is the white hole of this phenomenon. Find any unexplainable socks?edit on 25-8-2012 by Osiris1953 because: (no reason given)

Check out this thread, in which, other people report similar odd experiences.
I must say, I am skeptical about supernatural explanations for one's own items disappearing and reappearing with this phenomenon, human nature being what it is. But, the appearance of objects that clearly don't belong to the finder or anyone else in the household is intriguing.
What do you think is happening guys and gals ~~!?!?! Are we talking ghosts, spirits, aliens or any other odd phenomenons.

How curious....I really enjoyed reading your story, it reminded me of years ago when I used to smoke, I was in my bedroom and took a cigarette out of the box but couldn't find a lighter, the cig stayed in my hand while I was moving some things around in my room, only after a few minutes I saw smoke and looked down to my hand and my cigarette was lit....it totally freaked me out as there was no lighter or matches in the room, after this happened I searched the room again looking for a lighter just in case I had lit it while being busy but I never found one, and to this day don't know how the cigarette got lit.
If I were you I would start writing all the weird stuff down so you can keep track of what is going on....
I picked it up and put it in the hand mixer. I looked down and the other is just laying there in plain sight. I just can't explain it because it was like I could see them in my mind but they were not there and then they were.
