Running out of Space


I like to bring home a little memento from the places I visit and this is usually in the form of a magnet as they are easy to pack. The family also send me magnets . I display them on the boiler in my breakfast room as it's the only metal surface I have. However, I'm rapidly running out of space as you can see from the photo and I think that I will have to buy a magnet board to continue my collection!

Has anyone been having trouble with blogger I've been trying to upload this photo all day?

Hi gledwood thanks for dropping in. I'm actually in the UK but some of the magnets were bought in the states. I intend to drop by you and your friend Welshcake.

You need one of those giant American fridge freezers to display them all on!

great display, we too collect magnets for the same reason, have managed to lose a few in transit though, but that means i might get to go back to the places i have been!

I always have trouble with blogger, and I don't even use it! But I do spend half my blogging time re-entering Word Verifications,even when I get them right the first time!

I once had a refrigerator packed with magnets - no space for more. When I moved ... I put them on the washing machine (the side is completely exposed and on the front also). Just had to buy a new washer, the magnets are in a basket right now but they will eventually find their way back. One sees the washer almost as often as the fridge !! Maybe I will take a picture when I get them put back on. (they are only about 1/2 of what I had originally)

You simply need a bigger refrigerator! (Not quite sure what a boiler is.) Or perhaps they could be attached to your washer and dryer, to liven up laundry time ;)

Great collection.

No, I haven't had problems with Blogger.

I love and collect magnets too - but I don't think my collection matches yours :-)
I'm having problems trying to upload photos onto my side bar.
Wonder why...

kila our boiler is for heating the hot water and running our heating system. I could use my dishwasher but they might get knocked off.

BS and her indoors definitely show I would be interested.

My own fridge collection is minute in comparison but my son bought me a magnetic poetry kit for my birthday recently - it was such fun placing all the words in alphabetical groups!
