Christmas Stolen MeMe

I stole this MeMe from someone who stole it from someone else.
The blogger was Aussie, hence the ice tea and watermelon questions.

What color or design is on your shower curtain?
Subtle cream on white graphic pattern.

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator?
No. But I did last week. For Annie.

What would you change about your living room?
Maybe make the room wider. Oh and deeper seat size on the couch and chair.
OK. Throw in down filler to all the cushion. And new double paned sash windows. And....

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty?
Haven't had a dishwasher since I was a kid living at home.

What is in your fridge?
Standard stuff, my food compost (ants get it if I leave it out) plus leftovers from Friday's dinner party.

White or wheat bread?
Santa Cruz sourdough, and wheat.

What is on top of your refrigerator?
The fridge is out on the covered back porch off the kitchen, and we keep the toaster oven on it since it's so ugly looking.

How many plants are in your home?
4 or 5.

Is your bed made right now?
No. I just took a holiday nap!

Is your closet organized?
Pretty much.

What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now?
Honeysuckle glycerin.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home?
Glass.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now?
No. I don't like ice tea.

If you have a garage, is it cluttered?
No garage, just a basement.

Curtains or blinds?
Curtains.

How many pillows do you sleep with?
Three. Two to sleep on, one under my knees.

Do you sleep with any lights on at night?
No. Need total darkness.

How often do you vacuum?
At least once a week. It needs it more with Jasper the Wonderdog.

Standard toothbrush or electric?
Manual in the a.m. and electric at night.

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch?
Yes, but it doesn't say anything.

What is in your oven right now?
Maybe a cookie sheet with used parchment on it, just waiting to heat something up.

Is there anything under your bed?
Yes, it's giant space great for storage. I can't remember what's under there though.

Chore you hate doing the most?
Tub. Or cleaning the oven.

What retro items are in your home?
hmmm…lots of stuff. Plus the house itself.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office?
Yes. I share it with Annie. It's a mess right now since we're so close to Christmas.

How many mirrors are in your home?
Four or five.

What color are your walls?
Mustard in the LR, and bright burnt orange in the DR.

Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home?
No!! Unless you count Jasper the Wonderdog.

What does your home smell like right now?
Christmas.

Favorite candle scent?
Beeswax.

Ever been on your roof?
No.

How many TVs do you have?
One. But it's big. Oh, two. There's one in the basement and isn't hooked up though.

How many house phones?
Three.

Do you have a housekeeper?
Wish.

What style do you decorate in?
Retro-Cozy, easy cleanable.

Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints?
Mostly solid colors with a few accent pieces in print.

Is there a smoke detector in your home?
Yes. But they go off so often in this old house, that two of them have batteries sitting near them, but not in them.

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip?
I think we'd just get all living beings out.

Love the last photo. One lonely battery waiting for a home. At least,if you need a 9V, you know where to get one.
