Refrigerator Fun

ARTISTS DON'T HAVE TO "GROW UP"

My children are 19 and 20 years old but our refrigerator is still just as busy as it was when they were 6 and 7 years old. It's not their fault... they have learned by example (specifically Dad's example). Here is the latest example of dad art/humor.

The kitchen is the heart of our home, it's our gathering place, it's where we live. The fridge serves as a message board. The table serves as a desk for each of us as well as our dining space. I don't apologize that it looks like we live here, I'm proud that our kitchen looks like we all meet here and enjoy each others company. I'm proud that our fridge looks like we have children in our home... even if one of those children is 66 years old.

Here's what I would tell my clients when I staged a home...while you're living in it and aren't selling it...make it whatever you want it to be!!!!!  My fridge has a big Jayhawk magnet on it now.

Your home sounds perfect Bob!  And as for growing up, keep having child-like fun as long as possible!

I will do that Roy Kelley . It's not a bad idea to remind ourselves to enjoy life as busy as we get at times.

There is enough stuff on our fridge that if I was quized on it by Wayne Martin I'd probably get less then 50% correct Will Hamm .

That is beautiful Nina Hollander . I may be scared to eat there (don't want to mess it up) so you and I will have to go out for dinner. 😏

Unless I move to NC I doubt I will leave my home (alive) Kathy Streib but I agree with you that personal items need to be stripped from the home when selling.

I agree with your premise, my refrigerator looks like an art gallery and I wouldn't have it any other way Bob...

Neat to hear @Paul S. Henderson . Do you also add to yours? I don't think I use my 25% share of it but I do add to it.

That sounds fun @Carol Williams. I'd love to see a picture of it and see just where you have been. My parents dragged me all over the country at an early age and that cured me of wanting to go anywhere.

Morning Bob.

Our living room is our gathering place.  The look leaves no doubt where our favorite room is.

I feel welcome just thinking about it @James Dray 😉. If that is your gathering space I know that the furnature is comfortable and not that stiff stuff made for magazine pictures.

We love our kitchen, and when family and friends visit, ( Unfortunately, not many in the last year, but that's changing quickly) it's the place to gather. Thanks for sharing this post.

Bob I am so glad you cannot see the outside of my fridge. We have old pictures, doctors appts, etc on the outside of ours.

Dear Bob,

If you are not planning to sell, why not live in your house? Kids' artwork can be really nice. It shows how their thinking is developing.

Bob I find it is not the size of the kitchen it is the love that it produces:)Endre
