So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


SPF: In all your glory

This week's assignment for Random and Odd's Stuff Portrait Friday is "in all your glory" week. You're not allowed to go clean under your bed to make it look all nice. You're not allowed to scrape the black crap on the bottom of your pans either. This is about who you REALLY all your glory.


Under my bed has been a big-time storage spot for me, although I cleared out many things after we broke our bed last year. I did have a lot of picture frames under there and I broke most of the glass when the bed broke. This is my side of the bed. There is a pillow for which I've been planning on making a slip cover for more than a couple of years and an empty box that I'm planning on putting some sewing stuff in.

You can see AoD's repair work where we broke the bed. There lighter 2x2 wood there and you can see the snaggly wood on the edge of the side rail there.

AoD's side of the bed. A gun case and a box for the boys' .22 rifle. There are some spare blankets behind them. Our stereo is a hand-me-down from my friend, RC. He gave me a few cool things when he moved to Arizona. The stereo is one of them. He says I have to give it back when he returns to Texas or asks for it. Till then, we' re caring for it.

The stereo sits on the matching dresser to our antique bed. We really don't have two phones either. Neither line is plugged in. Pics of the kids, one of AoD when he was a little guy and you can see the photo booth pics of me and AoD on the mirror. Hey, look, there is me in the mirror.

My pots and pans. I really need to find a way to organize them better.

Go play and have fun.

    Lotta stuff under that bed. There's just no good way to store pots and pans, is there?
    I played!

    I utilize every facet of space available! I'm a pack rat for sure!!! And, we broke the bed in just the way that you'd think. It doesn't help that we sleep on antique beds, but we've broken about three or four. ;)

    and, we probably have too many pots and pans, but they come in handy for holiday meals!

    Hanging pot racks are the answer! They're fabulous!

    They would be nice, but aren't functional for our little bitty kitchen.

    I love you. You're bed looks like mine.
    EVERYTHING i own can be found under my bed.

    My mother would say, 'nothing ever changes'.

    I'm glad you played!!

    I agree. Cookware doesn't stack nicely unless you buy that special "everything fits into a cubic foot" stuff that costs $700.

    Happy SPF!

    Wow, you broke the bed, huh? ;)

    I played!

    Okay, Let me just take a deep breath and get over the dish cabinet.

    Okay. I think I'll be okay.

    Happy SPF! Great pics!
    I'm too chicken to play today, and my pots and pans are all over the freakin' place (out of sight, though). Still. It would be bad.
    No space under the bed-- platform style. Our stereo actually has a (get this) "turntable". It's probably the first one I bought when I rented my first apt. 20-odd yrs ago. It looks nice, just, well, that would be the only thing I'd want to take a pic of. First one hubby bought had an 8-track player. I wished I'd taken a pic of it before we finally gave it the heave-ho a couple yrs. ago. Heh

    Have a great weekend!

    Ah Corning Ware with flowers. Feels like I'm back at home in 1980. Dont, worry. I have them too, they were in the dishwasher and didn't make it into the picture.

    I played.
