An ugly place

In Me-Made-May ’12, mini-challenges are presented for each Friday, and today’s challenge is ugly places.  I would encourage those of you who haven’t taken a peek yet, to look through the MMM12 Flickr Group to see just how amazing all the outfits are that people have sewn.  I was scrolling through all the pics yesterday and was struck at how normal all the me-made clothing looks.  It was wonderful to see, and to think that I may meet anyone walking down the street and they could be wearing something me-made and no one would know because nothing screams, “HOMEMADE!!!”

And just for a lark, I thought I’d share my ugly place photo today with you.

IMG_1231 This is my cantina, which is supposed to be a cold room, but because it resides in the space between earth and sky underneath my veranda, it’s freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer.  It’s also my DH’s storage area for all the random things that he may need in the next 60 years of his DIY home ownership saga.  Ah, the joys of being married to someone in the construction industry!  In good news, the lovely rust capris are me-made.

  1. Isn’t it good to know that everyone has a space that is only just out of the elements and ‘perfect’ for bits of wood, deep freeze, old trikes (or equivalent) etc :). Love the capris – perfect colour.

  2. This cracks me up. Our garage is not a garage but something like your cold storage and more. It’s a man cave. I love the rust color!

  3. Thanks for reminding me about Friday’s theme! I took my photo this morning having totally forgotten. Time to brainstorm an ugly place and get a better photo!
