PLASTIC CONTAINER CABINET...EVERYBODY HAS ONE, RIGHT? THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...CONTAINERS AT WORK
This time of year is my favorite for so many reasons: the crisp, cool air, the smell of evening fires, the holiday hoopla that ensues, and the pretty little plastic containers in all my favorite stores. Yup, that's right, you heard me. I have such a hard time saying no to all those little wonderful plastic containers that the Glad company and so many others dress up so fancily for the holidays! There's the Halloween containers that are sweetly adorned with pumpkins and ghosts, the Thanksgiving ones with the fall leaves, and oh boy, don't even get me started on the winter and Christmas collection. Whoa Nelly! I have posted some pictures of my faves right here for your admiring gaze. I think they speak to my freakish need to organize things--all things--even food. Of course, they can hold other things too. I've used them to give gifts in, store craft materials, and even store game pieces for seasonal games. If I made a list of my top 100 favorite things (and I think I may just put that on my list of top 100 things to do), these would probably rank higher than scratch-and-sniff stickers. I know, right?! I really like them a lot! What's your favorite quirky thing about the holiday season?
I'm a hard-working, 3rd grade-teaching, seldom-sleeping, caffeine-addicted, book-loving, scrapbook paper-collecting, mom of 2 really great people, and am married to 1 really great husband. I'm also a really big fan of the Willy Wonka candy collection.
