'Fess Up Friday

They are few and far between, but I have a photo challenge for you.

While cleaning out my bathroom drawers, I ran across a bajillion lipsticks. Really. That many.

See?


Let's pause to admire the harvest gold bathroom. And the chocolate smudge on my coffee cup.

Reese's eggs will be the death of me.

So, I'm curious. Is this weird? It has to be bad, being a waste of money and all. How could I possibly need a dozen lipsticks? And sadly, not a one of them is the "perfect" shade.

And I must know...am I alone? Do you have odd collections of random things, particularly in your hunt for "the perfect one"?

It would make me feel better to see piles of lipsticks, but if you have something else that meets the criteria, those will count as well. Books don't count. We'll have a 'fess Up Friday for books....eventually. But I think I'll win. And the prize will be a book.

This time, I'm giving two choices for the prize. In the comment section, share a picture of your pile of stuff and if yours wins, you can choose between this adorable crimson clutch or 3 downloadable games from Integritas Academy. Both companies are owned by very awesome people. You can't make a bad choice here.

Game runs until Monday night.

Oh baby, have ya ever seen my pile of scrunches, I'll never be in need of anything in any color or texture to throw my hair up in a pony tail. Really, an old gal really will have any need for so many but just in case......

Well I just found you through another blog friend http://stuffingmyfeelings.blogspot.com/ and this Fess Up Friday looks like fun! I might not be able to participate this week - and if so not until I get home much later, but I look forward to future ports, especially the book one...lol.

I also came from stuff my feelings and I must say I too have that lipstick stash that is worthless! I even added two more to it the other day and don't really like them either! Someone needs to find a way we can try these on......lol

My camera is being fixed, so I won't take any photos, but I have at least that many lipsticks in my makeup tub in my bathroom. The crazy thing is that I really do not wear lipstick and I don't think I bought any of them. I think they are all lipsticks that MIL and SIL gave me because they weren't quite right for them and they felt bad just throwing them away. What is even crazier is that their coloring is very different from mine (I think MIL is winter, SIL is summer, and I am spring) and their style is even more different yet. But I can't throw things away and they give these things to me knowing that. Once in a while I will try one of the lipsticks out or try to blend two. I always end up wiping them off. It just isn't me. I'm going to go toss those puppies right now. All I need is my Carmex and maybe a slightly tinted lip gloss if I'm feeling fancy.

Mission accomplished. It was only 10 lipsticks. I must have purged a few a while back.

Hmm... I don't wear lipstick, so I'm sure I don't have a pile of lipstick to share... however, I am an excessive hoarder of everything else... so now to narrow it down.

Like your MIL, I have an extensive scrunchie collection. I'll have to ponder this for a day or so. Perhaps I should just take a picture of the inside of my garage. That would be enough to scare anyone! lol

Aw, man! We haven't had to fess up in forever, and I've been giving and throwing stuff away for weeks! I know you said no books, but what about my pile of not-quite-perfect phonics curricula? :-)

tomorrow i will post a picture of my many-shades-of-purple nail polish collection. the movers woudn't pack it in any boxes because the polish is flammable and i couldn't bear to throw them away, so i packed them in my suitcase. i was obsessed with purple last summer (and still am :) but i only wear the polish on my toes. i'm a freak, but my toes are always lovely!

Ahhh yes, I constantly buy carmex. I used to buy tons of different lipglosses, but I found I like carmex better. However, I seem to buy them and then lose them. I thought, "I'll put one in my car, by my bed and in my purse." Yeah that didn't work cause I'd take the 1 in my purse and put it in my pocket and then forget about it. I seriously don't know how I have lost so many, but maybe 1 day when I find them all I will take a picture and send it to you. haha :)
