I’m playing along with a fun blog carnival from MomDot.com. Here are five quick things you would learn about me if you walked through my house… besides the fact that the house is a mess!
Number One: My daughter likes to start crafts and projects then leave them all over the living room and coffee table. This is seriously still on the floor from this morning…. unfinished. She used half a roll of masking tape to tape it together.
Number Two: I have books EVERYWHERE. This is the wall to floor bookcase in our bedroom, it is cram-packed full of books. Hubby has started putting his archery stuff in front of my bookcase. I’m not sure if he thinks I will stop adding books if I can’t get to the case or what? The second shelf is packed full of my Dad’s old science fiction books — you can’t see them, they’re in a row behind the ones you see. You don’t want to see my nightstand!
Number Three: I LOVE Tea and coffee. I have a cupboard dedicated to my tea collecting habit, it’s much deeper than it looks and I must have 20 different varieties in there! Peppermint and Chai are my favorites. Our counter holds two coffeepots and there is a tea kettle on my stove!
Number Four: We like old stuff. This old hutch in our bedroom has a messy assortment of “things”. There is my Grandpa’s old beer stein, Chris’s dad’s police badge, some old matchbox cars, a giant Urkle pin (doesn’t everyone have one of those?), old buttons, an old pair of spectacles that Chris found in a customer’s wall while remodeling, old postcards, photographs and miscellaneous “stuff”.
Number Five: Lastly, you would find out that amidst all of these collections, an “Old Rooster and a (not-so) Young Chick Live Here”!
