Apartment Shot Part 2: Typeset Jewelry Holder

Gotta love:

A) Having parents that are borderline hoarders so that when you walk into the attic you’ll casually find a typeset drawer

B) Growing up in rural New England/an old colonial farmhouse where finding these kinds of things is the norm

C) Not having to pay a damn thing to decorate my apartment!

Here’s the latest addition to my new digs: a typeset drawer jewelry organizer:

Just don’t tell anyone that it’s currently being propped up by a roll of duct tape until I come up with a more permanent solution…

And yes, I’m aware that my coyote necklace looks like it’s doing unspeakable things to my horse necklace and I. Don’t. Care.

Best Long Weekend Ever?

Correction: Worst long weekend ever. 

Wait, before I write anything, I think it’s safe to say that we probably lost all of our readers. For anyone who stuck around for the YEAR hiatus, I love you. And if you send me your address, I will send you a 8×10 picture of me for your wall and a wallet sized picture of Elizadeath as a child when she was super awkward. You can reach us at mdhtblog@gmail.com.

Well back to my story. So this weekend proved to be a kick in the balls, after enduring a kick in the balls. Let’s start on Saturday, when I received a speeding ticket for going 40 in a 30 (which I actually think is a 35, I’m still researching). I was pulled over by a Massachusetts’ State Cop in my hometown. I wasn’t speeding, he’s wrong. Well, as soon as I pulled over, he asked me what I was hiding. Of course, I was confused and asked what he was talking about, which he then proceeded to make me get out of the car and sit on the hood while sitting on my hands, so he could search the entire car. Let’s remind everyone, I’M IN MY HOMETOWN, and I found out later, that people saw me getting searched. Awesome. Apparently I’m a thug now.

Now, we fast forward to Monday night. While on recon at the scene of the crime, I got a call from my girlfriend that I NEEDED to get home. Why you ask? Well there was water flooding in from our ceiling because our awesome neighbors left on vacation and turned their heat off. If anyone is new to Winter, here’s a quick summary: It gets cold at night and pipes freeze. When pipes freeze, they break. When they break, and it warms up, water now flows out of the broken pipes. Pretty simple right? Well apparently not for my upstairs neighbor. Now I’m running around like it’s Africa and Toto is blessing the rain‘s on all of the clothes in my closet.

After a few hours of playing musical buckets of water, the plumber and building manager finally arrive, break down the neighbor’s door and shut the water off. But now I’m left in the carnage that was my condo. Rusty (bloody) ceiling, holes in the wall and ceilings, and it looks like a murder happened on all my clothes. See below:

To top it all off, while taking picture of the damage for insurance purposes, water dripped on my cellphone promoting it to no longer allow me to hear people on the phone. At the rate I was going, I was waiting to spontaneously shit my pants. That’s about how my long weekend was going. So, I really hope Elizadeath and I can get this MDHT train rolling again, because I think it helps me keep my sanity, and right about now, sanity is all I have left.

Pinterest-y Kitchen

still waiting on the rest of my bowls though…

 

So I just moved (like city/state, not just across town. WHAT UP BOSTON!) and I literally have NO cabinet space. There’s one over the sink but I covered it with teal chevron contact paper because I didn’t feel 100% comfortable putting dishes in there even after cleaning it.

That said, the above is my solution. 2 stackable bookshelves with my -wares. The best part about this (or so I’ve been told) is the silverware holders. Not joking: the jars came from The Christmas Tree Shop and were $3.99 each. I’m going to go ahead and call it the purchase(s) of the year. I’m sure they can easily be replicated at-home but ain’t nobody got time for that! Not pictured are the bottom two shelves…which are filled with booze and various bar accessories.

How do you deal with small and/or difficult living spaces?
