Not only skeletons and fags...

Closets also reveal themselves by tags!

I'm honoured, I'm sure, that Rarity tagged me, but there's nothing interesting about my clothes... But lo and behold, I do own a couple of dresses!


The reason for all these clothes being squeezed in here is, naturally, that the obvious space for a bedroom wardrobe – the longest no-window wall – is this:


Say no more...

Or I will elaborate, I think.. The increased need for bookshelves never ceases, so we built our own in the staircase –


The living room already being filled to the brim ...


... But there's always room for another, right?!



The kitchen bench, that fits four kids (five, if they're bestest friends...) contains fun and games for all ages:


- Yes, Rarity, that includes TP, BackGammon and most other games you have or have not heard of...




Finally – peekaboo! Because this ...


is where I'm at right now – just look (Ikea, of course):

Fun, huh?

I guess I could have shown you the mess of shoes in a 7 person family,

my sons' Christmas outfits neatly hung,
my daughter's chest of drawers (which is actually "commode" in Norwegian, but let's not mix the two..) with her beloved doll's house on the top,

bicycle helmets high above,

or even the basic outfit for those long, wet, Scandinavian autumn nights,

But that would simply be tedious, now, wouldn't it..

Anyway ;) At least I beat Lisa to it, I think! Riannan was first, of course... And now, that I'm done with, it's my turn... I tag my new blogmate "d" - if you haven't got a digicam, I'm sure you can make a scenic description of the contents of your closets... My old friend Børge came out of the closet a long time ago, but probably keeps something in his. And Josh H – with all the time on his hands now that Josh K doesn't come home most days, here's something you can do...

Phew, this really did take quite a lot of time. Let's not repeat this till the kids are older and / or I need less sleep ;)

Well done, Scholiast!

Whoever came up with the closet tag ... I don't know, but it's turned into a token of acceptance... an initiation rite, required to be considered truly part of the whole blog-community.

I'm rambling. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

You're welcome... The 'sharing' bit sounds like we're in a congregation meeting, but who says we're not! :)

Your shoes for a family of 7 looks like mine for a family of one...
It's nice to share something else of our lives this way. Nice post. You can never have too many books, or bookcases.
BTW, my friend Lisa at Fragile Industries doesn't have a camera (a self-proclaimed Luddite), but will scan in a couple of photos, so "d" should be able to find a way. Those I tagged have accepted...

Scholiast, not only did you beat me to it, I am still debating the whole concept with myself, as it feels to me that my whole home is a closet of sorts.

Anyway, I was impressed with the proportion of space allotted to books at your house. My kind of place! Thanks for opening up...

Claire said...

I love all the bookshelves. I was just thinking to myself early today: how many bookshelves does a person really need? Obviously, you can never have too many. Great job!

"D" said...

OMG! *squealing like a girl* you tagged me!!! I don't know what that means though!! What do I do now? Post a picture of my closet? Oh horrors!

Scholiast said...

Hi "d" - yes, you're supposed to show us your innermost mess ;) Or you could leave out the worst bits, noone's around to check..
