Photo A Day 13 and WOYWW 271

RIP Robin Williams who died at age 63 yesterday, very sad circumstances.
Photos that remind me of him
Mork and Mindy                                        Mrs Doubtfire                         Sadness in his eyes

Julia's Stamping Ground will show you more craft areas

EDITED: To answer what the squeeze me box holds...a water bottle LOL

In a corner inside my craft room is this cellar where I keep all my empty jars and bottles of jams that I have made as well as extra toilet paper and oh a box of twix chocolates. The tall empty bottles will hold sauce if I get to make them, they come from milk bottles. there are tiny milk bottles in the middle front of the shelf. The middle shelf is now full of strawberry jam that I have made and will be making another batch on Thursday
If you'd like to play along, hope over to Chantelle (Fat Mum Slim) Blog or facebook

Gosh you have been busy, what a wonderful array of home made preserves - that will keep you going for quite a while! I would love a cupboard like that, but I know it would soon be so stuffed full that you couldn't shut the door! Have a great week,

A jam maker! I wish I could do that. But I have made freezer jam, and I can tomatoes and salsa. The photo a day looks fun. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #54

What a huge cupboard, you're good making your own preserves and jams. I only wish I had to time to do that. Sad news too, a man surely missed by the whole world. RIP

Hi Bridget,

It is very sad about Robin Williams. I put a quote of his on the bottom of my post and am surprised that noone has commented on it (yet). Maybe they don't read all the way to the end?!?

I really do love repurposing and love going to the thrift store. The basket I have my Dylusions sprays in also came from the thrift store and I spray painted it white too. Thought I'd try to be a bit consistent with the spray paint!

Your cupboard looks very interesting. I first noticed the preserves and then my eyes went to the bottom where all the empty jars are. I've been saving some jars and am looking forward to using them for "something."

Today I'm off work so hoping to get around to at least those that have visited me so far.

Peace, Kay (14)

Great cupboard. I have something similar in my kitchen and it's full of food, storage containers, small appliances. Was so sad about Robin Williams. Such a great talent to have such hopelessness. Happy WOYWW.

LOL! Such an odd juxtaposition of items in one cupboard :) I too was stunned to hear of RW. Funny, DD and I were just watching August Rush the other day. He was a rare talent and so sad he's gone.

Happy WOYWW! a little late

Oh, I would give anything to have a wonderful storage cupboard like that! It's so inviting.....well done you for making your own jam. I used to all the time, but we don't eat as much these days so there didn't seem much point. But I could make just a couple of jars couldn't I ?
I was sorry about RW too....poor chap....
Hugs, LLJ 12 xx

What a wonderful stash of home-made produce in your lovely cupboard, Bridget! I love cooking but these days can only manage to get meals on the table (and sometimes not even then - my hubby has to take over!) so I am not making extras much these days. Thanks for your visit and yoru lovely comment - yes, we all feel we've been through enough now, and it would be nice to have some respite! I am happy to say I'm feeling a lot better now but Mum is rather fed up having to take so many tablets when she's hardly had a day's illness all her long life, but at 93 something has to start wearing out I suppose. I am soooo looking forward to my special parcel arriving! You are so kind.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #72

Hugs, Neet xx 11

I used to have what they called a root cellar in another house that housed all my canning and groceries. My mother would laugh and say I could last an eternity will all I had saved up! That was an eternity ago. Still hoard stuf but. Love all the pictures on you photo a day crusade. I ought to join but just don't have a lot of time. Just now getting around to getting back to people who posted on my desk/blog this past month...OMG! I sometimes think I travel way too much! Hope you are having a great summer! Vickie #75
