orange crate shelves

Orange crates beneath some wood

Ironing boards inside a wall,

ironing board cupboard

Dancing on that empty floor

back then we thought we had it all~

 moving day hug

Defrosting the fridge with a hammer

defrosting with a hammer

Glass door knobs and yellow tile

yellow tile in kitchen 2

Wooden crates and mason bricks

mason shelves

Still somehow,  make me smile

Long before Pottery Barn or Thomasville

writing a check

Before credit cards statements each month…

There was a time when we lived on dreams

And somehow that was enough.

  1. Oh this brings back so many memories…. I think I had exactly the same things except for the ironing board…LOL Now the orange crates, down here, would be really popular due to the shabby chic craze. I love your post! Great one! 😀

  2. Dreams don’t cost anything yet … and I love dreaming and I would like a iron board in my wall with good light over. I have never defrosted the freezer with a hammer ..ö but with a vaccum cleaner. Love this little poem .. especially dancing on a empty floor.

      1. Yes, blow hot air into the freezer and it defrost in half the time.
        But we don’t have the same style of cleaners as you – stand up – we have the ones with long tubs. Its works miracles.

            1. Oh my… only 4 yrs? you would think that they would include that feature! Reminds me of the Disneyland ride about our progress…I heard they were bringing that one back. I really liked it!
              I guess … I do remember hammering the old fridge at work when I would clean it out. We have since gotten a hand me down there for the office… too bad I didn’t know the trick about the hairdryer or vacuum then~ seems like a much better plan!

              1. I know .. they are a bit slow over here – if it had been this year, it’s had been self-defrosting – but my unit defrost very quickly – but I can only do it when it’s minus degrees outside so things on the balcony don’t defrost.
                Never heard about to use a hammer – before we but a plastic containers with hot water in the unit and that worked fine too. ‘
                Things has changed for the better in some respect.
                Ride, I’m not made for ride … doesn’t matter what rides – they make me ill, even looking at them.
                How has your writting gone … the novel ready now ???

      1. Yes, I know exactly what you mean, but I’m learning not to think about re-doing the past, but doing the now, and doing it right. And, lucky for me, I’ve learned the secret to doing just that!

I would love to hear from you...Thank you for stopping by!
