Show & Tell

I thought I'd do a little Show & Tell of a few of my favorite things around the apartment.

Here's my Fridge. Lots of stickers a couple of pictures the kids did and the "Sisters" magnet my sister gave me.

These are just a couple of frames I had that used to have some lame duck paintings in them but someone ripped them out so I put in these pictures I took from a magazine. They're small, like 3X5" so I like that they're cute and live on a small wall by my bed.

I love this vase. My brother got it for me a few years ago and it matches my bedroom furniture perfectly, just by chance.

This painting in our living room was painted by my husband's brother many years ago.

This is my shell collection. I just realized you can see dust in the bottom, oh well.

Back when I first got to Egypt and living in Alex, I was super bored and lonely so I covered this box with every flower I could find in the magazines I brought.

Aaaand this is a baby picture of me!

    I worked in Bahrain as a helicopter mechanic. I really loved it there and I wish I could go back for a visit.
