I Can See Clearly Now

A few days before Christmas I put some of my old bottles on the ledge in my bathroom.
My bathroom may never be finished but it is functional.  It doesn't have to be pretty does it? sigh
My husband came home from work that day and headed in there.  After a bit I heard him bellowing singing 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.


The next time I went in I found this:

I do try.  Really

Was just heading out the door and saw your post ... I can feel your interior designer frustration.

Some husbands just don't get it!

dear deb,

i often refer to myself as an inferior decorator b/c sometimes real life is just not magazine worthy. at least it wasn't a beer bottle.

That ledge would be deadly in my house....all the bits I could put on there.....

The bottles are a nice touch...

Your husband sounds like a real handful! :)

Doesn't he know only your pretty stuff gets to stay out and be visible...
I tell mine all the time - if I don't put it there, it doesn't belong there!

Gotta love him though...he's providing lots of laughs for us.

You two are too much! I have to tell you that I thought this was going to be another episode of the Broken Files.

It's kind of nice to see that men and husbands (is there a difference, I wonder) are pretty much the same all over the world; at least in some aspects.

I found some of my old bottles amongst the ones heading for recycling. Why? They were empty.

Megan said...

I love the look of the bottles.

And at least now if you ever have bloodshot eyes you know just where to turn!

That's hysterical!

Don't feel bad. My bathroom may never be finished either.

That is hilarious. Your life must be a lot of fun. Nothing boring around your house.

Linda said...

OH my gosh...that is hilarious...sounds like something my guy would do!

Sue said...

Can't wait until our renos allow for decorating. It's been 4 1/2 years of reno dust and building-material mountains. Cute idea with your bottles! Keep tryin'. :-)

Honey said...

Haaaa! That is a funny hubby you have! Your bottles look wonderful up there by the way...even with the eye drops. :)
