growing up we had a mustard yellow fridge. i don't remember having too many magnets on our fridge back then, but i'm sure if i thought about it long enough, i could remember specific magnets. my aunt had a fridge covered in fake food magnets. 

when we lived in toronto we had a stainless steel fridge - it wasn't magnetic. we had a bare naked fridge. it felt odd to have NOTHING posted. no pictures of cute babies. no little notes. no funny magnets. our magnet collection hung out on our filing cabinet in our basement office.

we moved 2.5 years ago. our home has a small kitchen. it's cozy. it's not very well thought out, i mean really you can't throw something in the garbage if the dishwasher is open. if someone has the fridge open you can't get by. but. our cozy kitchen has a white fridge with lots of magnets on it. homey. love it. especially the recipe ones. with three of them, it's the start of a collection, wouldn't you say?

what's on your fridge?


  1. I love fridge magnets, I have decided that when we vacation in a new city we will pick up a magnet of the area. We have a white fridge, with some magnets on it right now but the side of it has a huge dry erase board with a calendar of Ollie's appointments, those are becoming more of a rare occurrence right now so I think I will use it for something else.

  2. I hate my fridge for this very reason because I can't put magnets on it. It's a stainless steel one. Now I've heard that the "new" stainless ones you can hang magnets on.

  3. i love fridge magnets. i love my children's artwork ON my fridge. i don't like barenaked fridges. i'm glad you've converted ;)
