THE FRIDGE CHALLANGE

A few weeks ago, a blogger asked what we had on the front of our fridge...
I am sorry that I can't remember just who it was.

But, then, JUDY at GRACIOUS SOUTHERN LIVING showed us pictures of her UNSTAGED fridge interior.....(WHAT A BRAVE GIRL)....but, even UNSTAGED, hers looked fabulous!!

ANYWAY, this is my fridge...I don't keep a lot of things ON the door and what I DO have there can change from time to time.....





Most of the time, these are the only things attached to the front of my fridge...

A 50's looking magnet BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER gave me because she thought it looked just like me as a teenager....

and this sweet heart magnet made by LUCY BLOOM.

Not many photos are ever on the door of the fridge......
THIS is where a lot of my photos go......... :o)
(and the cleaning and rearranging of these walls is ANOTHER story..........


OK.....BACK TO THE FRIDGE !!
I cleaned out my fridge last week and, boy, I was so proud of it !!




A place for everything and everything in it's place.......



THEN, WHAMO......REAL LIFE HIT.....AGAIN



Here it is, picture taken 10 minutes ago.....

oh, well.....

it looked nice while it lasted....

Excuse me while I go get a cup of coffee and one of those cold muffins there UNCOVERED ! (for shame...)


SOOOO.....wanna show us YOUR fridge, UNSTAGED ??

Are you a BRAVE girl, too?


Hugs and smiles today, bj

Your fridge looks great, it is so clean. I just cleaned out my freezer last night. I have puff pastry's in my freezer also, but I have not used them before.Do you have a certain recipe you use? I love all of your photo's, what a close family!!
Take care,
ginger

Hey.....life's too short to keep a refrigerator looking like a magazine advertisement! Yours looks perfect.....just right for the grands to find that perfect leftover muffin :-)

Thanks for reminding me......it's been a couple weeks since I wiped mine out.....oh the shame! LOL

((hugs)) Rosie

Cottage Contessa said...

Lol fun post BJ! I just may take you up on the dare to show you my fridge one day too! It's a wonder ours hasn't toppled over from the weight of the family photo's all over the front of it! lol Have a wonderful Mother's Day on Sunday sweetie, you sure do deserve it!

My fridge is such a mess right now! I just made a list of things I have to do this weekend and I forgot to add that...thanks for the reminder! I used to clean my whole fridge out every weekend and wipe the whole inside down. I sure can't find the time to do that anymore!

The outside of mine usually doesn't have anything on it. That's the story of my life....my home looks really clean until you open the door...to anything, closets, the fridge, under the sink, etc.

bj said...

TO JANIE.....
Thanks so much for visiting me and leaving sweet words...
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to you, too !

Susan said...

It's too frightening to look inside my fridge right now...bats might fly out. Guess I'd better clean it but it's more fun to look at blogs!

Picket said...

Girl!!! lol lol You ain't right!!!! lol Oh my word..you can take the simpliest thing and make it into a comedy scene! lol lol I bet you could show us inside your clothes hamper and never bat an eyelash!! lol lol Oh I am rolling off my chair now I am laughing so hard!!!! Oh lordy!!! lol I just wanted to come by and say I hope you have a beautiful Mother's Day weekend sis...but I sure do thank you for the laugh! lol lol love ya girl!

Beverly said...

BJ, I have to tell you that you have made my morning. You are so funny!!! I would never imagine I could show pictures inside my refrigerator. What a wonderful idea.

I could use a muffin just about now. I'm at work - sneaking a peek to say good morning.

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Look at that! I wouldn't dare show pics of the inside of my fridge. I'm not that brave.

Rue said...

LOL Picket! Isn't she funny :)

I told Judy that no one would believe my fridge wasn't staged. Being married to an army man and being OCD myself, everything is lined up like soldiers LOL Yours looks great!

hugs,
rue (ruzzer LOL)

Anita said...

The CNN people, when they were here, focused their camera on my refrigerator - I think because of the magnet that says "never, never, never give up!" or maybe the picture of Rick with president bush, but there's a handmade sign on there I made in desperation one day that says "Do not put anything in here without a LID!" and that embarrassed me! :P
My refrigerator never stays clean for long either... *sigh* Just like everything else around here! :)

Silver Bell Cottage said...

You are too funny. I have a bunch of photos on my fridge. Hope you are having a great day and will have a lovely weekend.
Hugs ~

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is awesome to be welcomed into such a great community.

Just so you know...I would die from embarrassment if anyone was to see either one of my fridges right now. Total and complete disasters...lol.

Suzy said...

I can agree with Rosie I love the refrigerator adds but I really don't have the time to beautify it every day. To me is just important that I have separated the dairy section from veggies....
That reminds me I have to unfreeze my old freezer and I hate to do that, but what has to be done….

Have a great weekend. Suzy

Picket said...

BJ!!!!!! I just got back home and read your note...girl I screamed outloud at the computer!!! lol lol Ohhh lordy help me I am gonna pe my pants!! lol lol Now I know you are on medication!!! lol lol Oh my word...you ain't got no sense BJ!!!! lol lol I can't even see the keyboard! lol I gotta say it....I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!!!! lol lol

Kathleen Grace said...

I would show it if it looked like yours! Right now it needs a good cleaning so, I don't think so:>) You always make me smile with your posts though BJ!

Mary said...

Oh sweet bj, I think there might be penicillin growing in my fridge!

Happy Mother's Day, honey!

Honest to Ya~Ya said...

SweetAnnee said...

My hubby doesn't get the

a constant battle to keep
it straight
LOL
deena

your's looks great!

Brenda said...

Girl either way looked good. I told Brian when we get home I will have to clean mine out. I bet it will be rotten. I did try and take daughter most of the stuff.

Mary said...

BJ,

Love you photo area of your home. I have a lot of photos, but haven't put them back up since I redid my living room. They draw so much dust in this old house and it's a constant battle keeping them sparkling clean.

Enjoyed your fridge post. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Blessings,
Mary

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Lol, I laughed so hard at this because just a couple days ago I was wondering if anyone posted their fridge! And then here you did! I'd never dare post mine. It would frighten people!

Oh, I wanted to give you some awards too, but you already have them! I'm passing them on to all the bloggers on my list. You may consider yourself so honored by me as well.

CIELO said...

Your fridge looks super clean and organized, that reminds me that I need to clean mine real soon... yuck! :)

Have a happy Mother's Day, sweet friend.... and blessings to you and yours...

Hugs
