I love labels. I like seeing a row of notebooks with labeled spines, bins with labels inserted into metal brackets, tags tangling from baskets and stenciled names above towel hooks.
I dream about everything in my house being all organized and labeled. I even bought a label machine so I could label to my heart’s content.
Ok, so why am I showing a toilet plunger? We have discovered one of the hazards of a brand new house — the wonderful “low flow” toilets. At great risk of offending someone (or more likely, embarrassing myself) over discussing such a, um, well, delicate issue, I will tell you that within three days of living at our new house we had to invest in three plungers disguised in metal canisters.
To the unsuspecting guest caught in an awkward situation, this little canister will likely save someone from utter mortification. And to make sure they know we have thought of their every need in their moment of crisis, and to avoid mistaken identity of what is in the canister, I am going to label the canister with the word “plunger.” All in the name of hospitality.
Don’t forget about the Beautiful Living Linky on Friday! I’m looking forward to the weekly motivation to stay on task with my goals. And I promise I haven’t forgotten about the home tour — I have the first photos uploaded now that I can show you all really soon.
