Yep, I could try and fool you all and tell you that I am so organized and careful and Type A, that I don't really have a junk drawer. That all my drawers look like this (although when I bought all this old silver bit my bit, Mr. Raz would always ask what I wanted with all that junk.)
But if I did tell you that, I would be a liar.
Because I have several. 3 in the kitchen alone. But it's not really junk. It's all needed.
Although His Nibs has a couple of tool boxes, his tools don't know where he keeps them, so I designated this drawer in the kitchen table for his BITS. Note the unopened pack of thimbles???????
This is the real junk drawer. Odd lightbulbs, napkin rings that haven't made it back to the proper drawer in the dining room, birthday candles, and a Body Butter. Because you may need it in the kitchen.
And this is what I call junk, but really is all the necessary stuff that gets tangled and messy if it isn't coralled in some way. Here I keep my mums old can opener (that thing right at the front next to the mini melon baller), cookie cutters (I have never made dog cookies, so why the bone shaped cutters), And in every junk drawer in Canada there's Canadian Tire money (cash back money from big hardware sotre)
A little pin from the UK.
And a yellow life saver from the 1980's.
Next week. Our challenge is FOOD.
Photograph food. How easy is that?
