list it Tuesday

I've missed playing for a few weeks as I've dealt with my computer nonsense, but this week's topic was just too much fun to miss.  "What's in your junk drawer?" asks Aimee at Artsyville.

I actually keep a pretty tidy junk drawer....I have this thing about everything in its place, you know.  So in my junk drawer you'll find:

scissors, heavy duty floral scissors, 2 florist knives, a small hammer, 3 screwdrivers, scotch tape, pens/pencils/markers, white board markers, white board eraser, rubber bands, tacks, string, an extra house key, car key, miscellaneous keys for who knows what, a butane lighter thingy for my candles, sticky candle hold stuff to keep them straight, a fan (see it next to the hammer on the left - Dan uses it to cool off after getting overheated in the hot tub),


a pedometer (does it even still work), a tape measure, picture hanging wire/hook, floss, dice, bobby pins (really, with my short hair?), lip balm, post it notes, clothes pins (we use them to hold chip bags closed), a foam dart from the boys' guns last Christmas, a broken piece from a Christmas napkin ring and in the back is a whistle on a lanyard that I didn't even know we had.

So there you have it, a little peek into my life.  How about yours?

Next week is the last opportunity to make and share a list this year and the topic is "Holiday Faves" (it can be anything....traditions, songs, people, memories, etc.)

  2. It seems like we both have two things in common: computer issues and relatively tidy junk drawers. Nice to see there are those of us who like everything in its place! Great job and nicely done on this challenge.

  4. I didn't know they sold stuff for keeping candles straight. On my memorah, I've been dropping melted wax from my candles into the little holders! I like a neat drawer! {:-Deb

  5. I knew your drawer would be organised and I wasn't let down... it is kind of like looking at a masterpiece... one day maybe I will be that organised... I kind of doubt it... but these things can happen I am sure and after all I did fold that one sheet after you inspired me... only the one but hey it was a start...xx

  7. I was a little unnerved by your super tidy drawer at first (I have organizational insecurities) but was able to totally relax when I saw that you had a foam dart and a broken napkin ring! Everyone needs a few unexplainables. (Great list!!)

  9. your junk drawer looks extra large-- and pretty organized! i have a whole host of pedometers-- partly because i keep thinking they don't work anymore so i get new ones. i'm pretty sure they all just need batteries! :-)

  12. Fun idea!...I'll hop over to artsyville and maybe do the next list. Love your site...I'll visit often!

  13. Terrie, Enjoyed your list! So organized!

    However I was much troubled when I read on your sidebar that Google may discontinue following/followers. I've only been blogging for a few months so just catching up with the rest of you!

    Can anyone else out there comment about this issue?

  14. LOL, I showed a before and after picture of my junk drawer once on my blog, and I am proud to say that I have kept it relatively neat since the tidy up, but I think you have me beat on that score! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
