so what is in your drawers?....

inspired by Adrienne's post about what was in her drawers....here are some of mine...ACK! I can't believe I am sharing these....the crevices of my home...the dark hidden things, that make you cringe to even think of some one else seeing them....
Lets take a quick tour...the front room....it has a library table with two drawers, and two end tables...what did i find in there?.....ooooh here is the first one...piles and piles of miscellania..a base for a broken clock, a baggie full of christmas replacement bulbs, a metal ball...a cookie cutter, a wheel for those pop the wheelie thingiess the boys had...I think those are all broken by now and the ropes that hold Mr Blowup Frosty and Mr Blowup Frankenstein down in the wind...among other things! I do blame some of this on that gorgeous man i live with...he is wonderful at helping pick up..BUT...he sticks it all in the drawers, rather than in the kids rooms or the closet or where ever it may belong and he doesn't know where...the good news is...the floors are clean..! *disclaimer* this is not a complaint...just an observation..I would much rather have to clean the drawers out once in a while, than have it all on the floors...


Hey! this one is rather organized and has no unwanted items...a drawer next to my favorite seat..it holds my tarot and angel decks only....
By the front door...not terribly crammed..Hey! that is where I stuck the catalogs from Dream Street....and wow~ I totally forgot about that wooden bear and clothes....saving it for grandkids I suppose...it has been there for I don't know how long...so I guess it is safe and can continue to stay there....
this is a miracle...a completely empty drawer!!! Halleluyah...okay i have to confess...Art just painted the coffee table and two end tables...so all the drawers except the phone book drawer are empty....for the moment at least...
Last but not most certainly least on our 'drawers in the house' tour(there are few more..the bill drawer and one or two more) is the MOTHER of Junk drawers...the kitchen junk drawer..you could create a complete survival kit from this drawer....Survivor man beware.....
na nah.......nah na.....(think Jaws theme here)...the suspense is building...here it is...the JUNK DRAWER of the Century....a close up!..are you scared?
and a top view.....super size the picture to see the enormity of the contents...doesn't it send chills down your spine....of excitement maybe?..since mostly it is altered artists that read this blog...lots of opportunities waiting here....you know..the scary thing about this really...I had cleaned it out less than 6 months ago....and this is how fast it filled...yikes!!!

so....now it is your turn....show me your junk drawer...and pass it on...post a link in the comments section..lets play a game of it...

I think I remember this side of you Angela. Remember that one time I got so frustrated that I gathered everything in your room and threw it out the window? You've improved. At least now the mess is limited to your drawers. I think. LOL
