I’m living on the edge of reason around here while remodeling is going on. With everything out of place, I needed at least one corner where I could bring order out of chaos. I found two drawers in the “bar” cabinet (doesn’t every 1970’s suburban house have one?) that hadn’t been visited in a long time. Here’s my most important find — as you can see, it’s a bit bunged up, I’m assuming from past use.
As for a list of finds, here goes —
9 wine-bottle corks. I gave away the wine, so that makes these how old?
12 clip-on flashing lights like we used a decade ago when walking at 0-dark-thirty in the morning.
3 can openers, 4 sleek mid-century-looking bottle openers, 6 can/bottle openers of the kind that were once called “Church-keys”, including a cute little folding one, and 7 corkscrews (4 I didn’t even know what were at first).
5 screwdrivers… now that I think of it, very appropriate for a bar area, at least in a bad-pun sort of way. Also 5 more pairs of scissors, and many little oddities. Here’s my favorite oddity…
Also on the subject of German beer – more of Bob’s coaster collection – pretty, yes?
And my nomination for the award for Most Out of Place — a fossil remnant from a past Gem and Mineral Show …
And here’s the obligatory drawer-explosion photo, a partial-view, after throw-aways —
Do you have any cabinets that need exploding?
