I want to start a new project, and I need your help.

Remember Project Nightstand?

Ah, such good memories of sharing that little bedside table, and all of it's dusty-cluttered-familiarity.

Wasn't that fun? (pretend it was)

Well, let's do it again! Except this time, I want to see your refrigerator. Yes. I do.

Here's my trusty old fridge...

A little back-story: I prefer Lone Star over Shiner, my MIL gives us eggs from her own hens, and our little town has a new Chinese place that makes decent wonton soup. My fridge is covered with magnets, and on the left is a dry-erase board that I write the kids' chores on, in a futile attempt to not have to repeat myself. My fridge was here when we bought the house, so I'm guessing it's nearly 20 years old. It doesn't have an ice maker, and after 15 years of filling a huge stack of ice trays, I quit. So now we drink our tea warm. I don't buy sodas, so that's not an issue. 

I use half & half every day in my coffee and tea, so that's a staple. It reminds me of my grandparents because Papaw used it in his Malt-O-Meal. We now have a door full of insulin and batteries.The insulin pump goes through batteries like nobody's business. My film has been moved to the freezer, except for a small assortment of instant film. Film and insulin. Necessities.  :p

I find these photos to be very interesting. I started taking photos of my house, in it's usual state of dissaray because I want the kids (and me!) to remember what it looked like when we WEREN'T having company over.

My daughter came upon some photos of the kitchen recently, and she smiled. She said, "I'm so glad you took these". It was just a shot of the kitchen sink with dishes  and towels here and there. It's where we spend a lot of our time together.

So send me your photos, or post them on your blog so I can link to them. Don't clean up first. Seriously. That's what it's all about. I don't know about you, but I don't see other people's kitchens very often. Much less the inside of their fridge! Am I being a vouyer? Oh well.

Not gonna happen, Jen.

Thersites said...

Bwack-bwack-bwaaaaack! ;)

Must not be any beer in the fridge for company.

Jen Brimmage said...

Come on, Duck.
Don't hold out on us.

Your nightstand was a great addition to the collection.
Fork over the fridge pic.

See what I did there? :-D

Jen Brimmage said...

Oh man. I just saw that I have fewer followers on this blog than I did a few weeks ago.

Must be doing something right.

Have you gotten any fridge photos from others?

Jen Brimmage said...

Hi AOW! yes, I've gotten several. Nicrap and Fj submitted theirs, too. :)

Have you posted their photos?

Always On Watch said...

If it's not too late, I could take a few photos and email them to you, let me know.

The photos as embarrassing, but my fridge is what it is.

Jen Brimmage said...

Of course it's not too late! Send them to me, and include any little details or back story you want me to include.

Z said...

I want to see, TOO!
I'll admit my fridge has even more stuff attached to the OUTSIDE of it than yours!! xxx

Jen Brimmage said...

Oh I clean mine off every few weeks, Z. It becomes wall-papered with the kids' school papers. I do love collecting magnets, though. Hey, send me a pic of your fridge. ;-)
