How Vanilla is your Ice Box?


A refrigerator (often called a “fridge” for short) is a cooling appliance comprising a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump—chemical or mechanical means—to transfer heat from it to the external environment, cooling the contents to a temperature below ambient. Refrigerators are extensively used to store foods which spoil from bacterial growth if not refrigerated. (wikipedia)

Today’s focus is about what’s on the outside of your household vessel of leftover pizza and Bud Light.

Remember back in the day, when you couldn’t wait to hang your report card, A+ test, or a picture of you in your sports uniform on your family’s fridge. It was a badge of honor, at least for a week or two, until something newer or better came along. If you had siblings, it was even more of a challenge to make sure you had as many (if not more) items held up there by magnets.

Have you ever stood back and looked at your fridge these days? What’s on it? Coupons, magnets from past vacations, favorite team schedules, your own children’s schoolwork or art?

Instead of looking at it as a fridge, what you if zoom out a little and look at it like a piece of art. Most probably fall within the collage category, while some may be of a minimalistic design (that’s my one college class of Art Perceptions shining through right there). Either way, most people will have at least one “canvas” in their household.

Take a moment, snap a pic and post it in the comments section(use photobucket, etc.). If you’re on twitter, you can use twitpic (et al.) and use the hashtag #myfridge

Whether you take the photo as your fridge appears in the wild, or decide to give it the supermodel airbrush workover, let’s see your masterpiece!
