Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
inside my home:
things in the freezer don't always get a pretty fern frost pattern, sometimes it's pearls instead.
you all liked EC's smiley spoons so much, I thought I'd show off mine. These are hard plastic and were a Christmas Only item on sale in Target several years ago.
Here's Gracula, guarding his hoard of garlic.
one corner of my TV unit
a closer look at the fake Bonsai plant
right down by the tree trunk, 4 miniature plastic park benches. I bought them online, 2 in a pack, for $1 a pack, free delivery, all the way from China! The Bonsai had just that green whatever-that-is "lawn" and I added the pebbles myself, to make it look better. I have another one on the ledge above my sink, again with pebbles, but without the benches and at Christmas I hang tiny fake gifts on it.
this is my green glass vase which holds 16GB usb's which hold TV series such as Agatha Raisin, Jack Irish, Murdoch Mysteries etc. I'm currently watching The Librarians.
the blue glass bowl, which is rounder than it looks, this is a bad camera angle and I couldn't be bothered taking the photo again. This holds 16GB usb's with movies, I have the movies listed in a notebook and the first movie on each one is written on a label and stuck to the usb. Each one holds between 15 and 21 movies depending on the length of the movies. The 8GB usb's hold fewer movies of course. Very handy for when I'm laid up with back pain, I can plug in one of these and just watch movies without having to get up and change DVD discs.
my glass ashtray holds shells collected from a trip to the beach.
moving on to household tips:
buy a regular bottle brush and cut the bristles until they're only about 1cm from the wire,
use it to scrub the kitchen and bathroom drains, but beware the spatter effect. Wear an apron and wipe down nearby surfaces after, including your eyeglasses (*~*) if you weren't careful enough.
when cooking a yummy yummy potroast, prepare the cooking liquid before you start,
