ahhhh old apartment, how I miss you. It was perfect I can't lie. But I love the Bcave and all its cluttered Burns glory. You see.. I am a burrower. I like all my favorite things right there! Right there where I can see them everyday. In fact I want it to overwhelm me so I can swim in it. I know some of you are wanting to creep in there and clean it out (sorta Monica via Friends espisode where Ross dates a mess girl and M shows up in the middle of the night unable to sleep until she cleans MGs apartment?) Sort make piles, have a "toss" and "give away" stack. But trust me. I have tried this before and we ended up agreeing to keep most of it...
In **mystery box #1 I had odds and ends from my desk (which is now used as my vanity) along with all kinds of random pictures, clunky frames, and short of a million headphone wires in various colors. In the not so mysterious box (becuase my mother packed it on day 1) were tucked safely away all of my wall hangings.
**I start out very organized in a move. But towards the end it ends up with labels like "Crap from that one drawer" or Tommy Boy style, in a giant trash bag. And no. I am not ashamed.
Throughout the years I have collected what I call post card art. I had them (cheaply) framed and hung in my "dinning room" in the 'ol place along with framed photographs that I loved, or cards I was sent from various loved ones. I decided to dust them off and hang a few in the Bcave.
Here are some dimly light pictures of them from my iPhone (my apologies.. but you get the idea):
