Found Treasure Bad Decisions


I found the above "treasure" in a drawer, I opened said drawer to find a paper clip... YIKES! Someone I worked with went to Vegas and brought me this.... about 16 years ago...anyone want it?


I did not post the drawer pic in color because it looks even worse than black and white... if you guessed this is the JUNK drawer you guessed right.

I found a brand new box of crayons and I have no idea how long they have been there, maybe 15 years? never opened, never used... so why are they there? I have been saving this quote I found and thought it goes with the answer. Bad decisions is what made this junk drawer. As in open drawer stick something in it.


I made a decision Saturday morning to snap this Kitty..... at least I did not buy it to junk up my house.

i have two junk drawers consist of items that are odds and ends and i continue to throw items in until-eventually- the mess is too big to ignore! but i decided to remove all of the clutter and unneeded items over the weekend.

Oh my gosh I thought that was a picture of our drawer. MOL MOL MOL

Every house needs a junk drawer.
I'm in the process of cleaning out my parents home. To date I've found 30 nail clippers, 10 pair of scissors and well I won't even tell you how many drawers of tighty whiteys I found. Who needs that many?

love love love the hello kitty

You only have ONE junk drawer??? My problem is that I think in categories and too many things in my life do not fit into a category. Enter: the junk drawer.

Thought of you when I published my post today, Sandra. lol

Our junk drawer here is much smaller than at our last house. Oddly, we don't miss a thing we tossed!

Hi Sandra, every one has junk drawers! Mine is a dandy! I clean it out about 3 times a year and then it gets all junked up again! I guess I had better get at it again!

We all love Hello Kitty around here! What is that in the bottle? I remember about four years ago, you had a box of crayons just like these on your blog, maybe the same box. And you were saying something about them related to your blog. Everyone has a junk drawer!!! And once every few years we clean it out all pretty, then it slowly becomes junked up again!!

Junk drawers a great! You should see my hubby's. He even has junk boxes, like everywhere.

Best,

Boa noite,
para quem gosta de surpresas é muito agradável encontrar algo que já não nos lembrávamos.

I usually hate it when people say things happen for a reason, but this one makes sense!

Dee said...

I love junk drawers....and cleaning them out after a few years. It is almost like a time capsule :)

We have a junk drawer and it's in the kitchen and holds all sorts of "stuff"...notepads, pens, coffee filters, small screwdrivers, instruction manuals for small kitchen appliances, tape, etc.

SquirrelQueen said...

Ha! As many times as we have been to Vegas I never bought so much as one trinket for myself or anyone else. Photos of the area are much better than junk.

My junk drawer is in a small file cabinet next to my desk. The one is the kitchen is all tools, washers, screws and other stuff that might come in handy sometime. But there is a little junk in that one too.

Angela said...

Oh the junk drawers! lol I have too many of them at my house! I have one big drawer in my bedroom dresser that has who knows what??? It is so full I can't put anything else in it! I've got to go through that one day but the way I'm getting now is I put it in a bag to put it somewhere else and then the bag just sits around cluttering up things! I have a serious problem Sandra! I need someone to clean my house and toss, toss, toss things! lol
