I Love Magnets






I love magnets as you can see from this picture of my refrigerator.

I have been collecting them since I can't remember when. Most of them are from places we have been on vacation. Some are from local places like the Detroit Zoo, The Science Center and Greenfield village. Some are from as far away as San Juan, Pureto Rico when we went on a cruise. I try to get a magnet from everywhere I go that is new to me. A lot of them are from vacations we took when the kids were small and I have written the date on the back of them. Some of them were given to me as gifts.

This picture does not even show all of them. There are magnets on both sides and also on a refrigerator we have in the basement.

I have never counted but I'm sure there's hundreds of them .

The worst part is when I want to clean the front of the refrigerator. It takes me longer to remove and replace the magnets than it does to clean it but I love them and they are a great converstion piece!

I used to have magnets, from all over, covering my fridge. But they drove my husband nuts. It was a compromise that I happily made, but your fridge looks a lot like mine used to. Only mine is beige.

When I moved into my current house a few years ago, I fell in love with the stainless steel refrigerator. But, I was crestfallen when I realized that I wouldn't be able to put magnets on it. I STILL haven't gotten over that disappointment.

That is a whole lot of magnets! And so fun to look at them and remember the places you have been...

My favorite magnet currently on my refrigerator is a fifties drawing of a woman talking on the phone with two kids in the background, and she is saying, "I childproofed the house, but they still keep getting in!"

That one is not my kids' favorite, for some reason...
