Now that I don't have kids at home any more, my fridge art has changed since the school kids days, but there's still some good stuff there.
Here's a peek at what is decorating my fridge these days. I know you're all incredibly interested in this stuff but hey, it's a slow blog day for me and this is all I've got!!!
I just have stuff on the top portion of the fridge and keep the bottom bare. The grouping of six business card size photos in the top left has been on my fridge for 12 years. Three of the pictures were taken at Niagara Falls when we were there on Emily's 13th birthday - she's 25 now but I love those pictures. The lower left one is of my sister, mother and me at when they came to Edmonton for Sara's wedding 9 years and 4 kids ago.
Here's a close-up of it.
The frog with flexible arms and legs is a favorite of the grandkids. They always play with him and put him in different positions - the favorite being the frog doing the potty dance. The owl is a peg melt craft one of the grands did of one of my favorite things - an owl.
There are also souvenir magnets of some of my favorite places and things - i.e. Arizona and some saucy women magnets with sayings such as "A clean house is the sign of a wasted life" , "I can only please one person a day and today I'm pleasing me", and another that says "What if the hokey pokey is what it's all about?" Oh, and just to show that I can be a little bit cultured, there are three replicas of windows done by Frank Lloyd Wright that we picked up at his famous home in Arizona.
Oh yes, there's also pictures of three of my grandchildren. There's no rhyme nor reason for which kids get put on the fridge. I switch them up once in a while.
The front isn't the only part of the fridge to get decorated. Prominently displayed on the side is a large perpetual calendar that Emily made for me some years ago containing the birthdays and anniversaries of all of our immediate family members. She even put pictures of the people on. We've had to write in the new ones as they've been born or joined the family by marriage. Em will have to make us another one soon as the pictures are sadly out of date.
And that's it for my fridge decor. What do you have on your fridge?
