The Cave of Wonders







This blog is fully devoted to showing the ugly underbelly of things as well as the loverly and creative. And that is why I'm about to show you my garage...a veritable Monica's Closet of insanity. And before you judge, understand that I not only have the yard tools and kid's bikes, I also warehouse an online store (or two really), the makings of a craft business, and oh, yeah, a CHURCH. I double-dog dare you to have so much in such a small space....a one car stall, to be exact. So anyway, I did some cleaning and organizing in there yesterday, which was a sweaty, exhausting job. I still have kids rooms, spice cupboard, pantry and yard, but this house is getting considerably more sane than it has been. (and oh, btw, these pics are before and after...)

Now let's play a game. You name something and I tell you if I have it in there.

Wow, Vanessa. This is a lot of stuff. I can't imagine finding anything in there. This is yet another example of your
amazing-ness : ). Do you have one of those old furs that little old ladies used to wear with the head on the creature? Do you know what I mean?

Jess....no dry sink....currently. Ding ding. you get a point.

Helena, baby boots, yes.

Ashwee: i do NOT have the lindberg baby and you don't get any points for suggesting I steal babies. I adopt them like regular people.

Ma: if OBL was in my garage, I'm sure he was scandalized by my infidel tank top while I cleaned.

And lastly, Becky...i don't have one of those freaky furs currently, but I saw one yesterday at the thrift store. Things with faces...eek!!!!

ok, i don't have a music stand currently, but I do have one of those collapsible easels that your Sunday School teacher used to prop the flannel-graph on. I don't have a case blow-dryer currently, but I've had them a couple of times in the past. I bet I could find some of those curlers if I needed to....but not in the garage.

I have a model of a church in Noel Missouri and and 8x10 portrait of a Shriner. Those are the weirdest things I can think of out there....

oh, and canned goods...not old...just new ones....except for that one can of sour kraut that's been out there for a while.

mmmmm.....I could seriously go for some perogies....
