I saw a fun feature on Smith Magazine called Freeze Frame, where people submit snapshots of their refrigerators, showing magnets, notes, photos, and anything else they might have there. This made me think about how I love to collect magnets, so I decided to go with magnets for my M post.
Here is a (poorly taken) snapshot of my current collection of refrigerator magnets.
I love to buy magnets when I go on trips, so some of these are mementos of my favorite trips that I've taken, including London, San Francisco, and New York, where I saw A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway a few years back.
I got this magnet on a trip to Chicago when I visited the Art Institute. It's probably my favorite of the bunch, as I've always loved the painting Nighthawks, and it was a treat to see the real thing. I've always thought this painting would be great inspiration for a story, as I love trying to imagine a story and background for each of the four people in the diner.
I've mentioned before that I'm a huge football fan and, when it comes to the Ohio State Buckeyes, I'm a fanatic. I got a Buckeye magnet set several years ago, and this drum major is now all that's left of it. He's been on the refrigerator so long that I hardly notice him, but when I took this picture I realized that he's actually kind of creepy looking. Maybe it's just the shadow, but I almost feel like he will march off the refrigerator at night when I'm asleep. I might end up retiring him.
So that's my refrigerator, minus the shopping lists, photos, and miscellaneous notes. What's on yours?
