This is why I go to thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales and other places where they sell cool stuff. When I cleaned the top of the fridge the other day I decided it was time to organize all my trays I’ve picked up over the years.
They were just stacked on top of the fridge, along with the hammered aluminum ice bucket I bought for $2 at a junk store. Yes. $2. I use it maybe once or twice a year when I serve iced tea instead of hot tea at Creative Sisterhood. The rest of the time it just looks pretty.
You can also see the edge of an old metal bread box I bought at a flea market. That’s where I keep the extra garbage bags.
Not too long ago I bought this plate holder, although I didn’t know that’s what it was at the time. I’ve had it on my desk holding magazines, but decided this was a better use for me $1.50 investment.
I realized after putting things up on top of the fridge that everything up there came from some of my second hand shopping excursions. I love things that have stood the test of time.
I’m a sentimental mush it seems. I guess that’s not really news.
