Kate has come up with a funny contest asking people to take a picture of the cupboard over the refrigerator and show off all the useless junk we store up there. So here is mine. It's mostly filled with travel mugs. Some of these things date back to college days. See that Caffe Strada mug and the Impressionist mug next to it? Those mugs have seen some good times... good times.... Oh, yeah, and you can see some of the Raiders drink cups that RM has collected at games for the past couple of years, a pitcher I forgot I had, a thermos, a training sippy cup that neither kid ever took to. And what's that I see? Is that a Nintendo 64 box? Why yes, yes it is! It doesn't have an old broken down game system in it though. It's filled with a set of plates that my mother in law collected for us. RM's had those plates for a long time. Honestly, I keep forgetting we have them. Sorry, mom! Well, that was enlightening. I really need to get in there and get rid of some of that. How many travel mugs do we need? I finally decided to close up the Etsy store. I may post things there in the future, but I just haven't had the time to update it. So, I've decided to offer up the last 4 items that I have already made on the blog.
