i needed sticky dots.
eileen came to the rescue with wood grain contact paper.

unfortunately i had to peel them off...
this will definitely have to be investigated in the near future.

during my search for drain patterns...

i came across these lovely drain hair catchers. these very much remind me of my collection of paper towel & toilet paper patterns.
i will be posting about said collection at a later time.

dirty dirty dishes

at the moment, i'm trying to only use only white dishes in order to take research photos.
the busboy was confused when i told him to hold on a second before taking the dishes away.
this one makes me gag. it's tuna fish. BLARGH!
