Fridge Magents, and more BFs :-)

Veda of Iyengar's Kitchen is hosting the Fridge Magnet Collection event on her blog. It is such a delightful idea, and the best part of the event is that she started by saying "It may be one, two or many. But they make you happy!" I have very few fridge magnets, and nothing to boast of, the only fridge magnets I have are all from 3 places.


The magnetic spoons and ladles and the windmill are from the Nederlands (Amsterdam), the cable car, the Golden Gate bridge, the picture frame, and the sand slipper (my daughter turns it upside down!) from the United States (San Francisco, California), and the Melbourne Finders Street Station from Australia.

My daughter loves to play with them, which is why some are in a bad condition. If you look closely, you will notice that I have used scotch tape for some of the spoons to hold the magnets behind them. As a baby, when I was alone with her, I would hold her in my arms while in the kitchen, and she always wanted those to hold or play with. She loves the picture frame too, and always points to it saying "Baby!" I replaced one of her older pictures with a recent passport sized one, and love to see that picture whenever I turn towards the fridge.

Before I ramble on and bore you, this post goes to the Fridge Magnet Collection event at Veda's Iyengar's Kitchen.


Now, to the BF's in the title. No, I didn't mean boyfriends :-P! I definitely am fortunate to have more Blogging Friends:-)

JZ of Tasty Treats has passed me the Blogging Friends Forever award.
Dibs of Chitra Amma's Kitchen has also passed me the same award.

Thanks a lot, JZ, and Dibs :-)

This is the fourth and fifth time that I am receiving this award. I am so delighted, I can't express how happy I am! I am unable to decide on passing the award again and following the rules, and will therefore link to the previous posts. A big thank you to all my blogging friends who visit and continue to boost my spirits.

Nice collection Shreya! I loved the ladles. Usually I dont see them as miniaturized fridge magnets. They remind me of 'choppu' that I used to play as a 4 year old :)
