This is what happens when you store your "stuff" vertically...

The scene of the crime:

I was looking through this stack of old mirrors and frames,
trying to find something to put together a memory board...

when this...

lovely little chippy metal flower cart
(precariously perched on top)

fell on

(Above is the "before" picture.
I wouldn't dare show the "after" shot.
Trust me, it's scary!)
So now I look and feel like this...

It didn't require stitches because,
(I know this sounds horrible),
 it scraped the skin right off.

No bruising, but I do look like I had a run in
with a small truck... er, cart!

So if I'm a little more wonky than usual...
you'll know the reason.

I'm hoping I have no social engagements
that I will need to attend
in the next few days.

I'm thanking God that it wasn't worse,
that I have bangs,
and hoping some skin will grow back.
(sorry this is so yucky to talk about)

Great way to finish off a holiday weekend!

Love ya,


  1. Oh' Poor Debra. I know just how you feel. I fell twice a week and a half ago. Once off the porch. Do you think we're in a rush trying to do too much.

    Take it easy and please take care of yourself!

    Love, Tracy :)

  2. poor baby
    take care now ya hear ....

    oh so thankful you're safe

  3. Debra! I'm so glad you are okay and didn't have to have stitches!!! Duct tape... that's some good stuff....

    :-) Feel better soon!

  4. OUCH! So sorry. Glad it wasn't any worse. So far you don't look too bad! Hope it gets better fast! JQ

  5. Oh My.......Next time store things horizontally & just drive a nail in the wall to hang such things!! DH tells me if the back porch storage area ever catches on fire it will melt because of all the nails & screws in the walls for storage!! LOL!!
    ((He has NO sense of humor!!))LOL!!
    Have a Great Day!!

  6. Be careful Debra! Though I think we have alot in commeon, I thought I was the only one who had run-ins with stuff like this!!! Take care and heal up soon!

  7. Yikes! Let that be a lesson to the rest of us who store vertically. You still look beautiful!

  8. I'm glad that your okay, but I'm looking at your storage space, it's so neat, unlike mine.

  9. you poor thing, the perils of creativity! take it easy and use the time to dream up new projects and catch up on blogs!

  10. Og your poor head, Hope it does not hurt too much, and that you will soon be ok again.
    Blessings, Dorthe

  11. Sorry to hear about your injury, Debra! Hope you're back to normal very soon.

  12. Ouch!! I bet that hurt =(
    I hope you heal quickly....

  13. Debra,

    Bio Oil just helped remove my latest booboo scar. Try some of that. So sorry, you were hurt. Why does it always hurt worse as we age? As kids we could crash on a bike and get right back up and keep going....Now? OUCH!

    The bigger question is why do you have all those frames out in the garage not being used? I know someone who will gladly take them off your hands.... : )

    Take care of yourself.


  14. Oh my!!! You are lucky, it could of been worse............I have a room in my home downstairs that houses all my things that are waiting to be used...........I always hope others that see this do mark me as a HORDER!!!!!! LOL anyways you take care and thank GOD you are ok. XO MARY

  15. Oh no! I hope you're not too battered! Feel better soon.


  16. I am so sorry to hear this, Debra! Hope you are feeling better now!

  17. Hello pretty lady!
    OUCHIE! I can see how all those metal swirls could really do some damage! I hope you got a tetnus shot too!
    I will take heed of your hard lesson learned :-)
    And you have the first memory to add to your Memory Board!
    Hugz & Smilez

  18. I'm tellin' ya, being a hoarder is dangerous business!
    Thank you for this cautionary PSA for the REST of us. ;-)

  19. Oh no:(! I am saying a little prayer! Get some rest and stay away from falling objects!

    Take care!

  20. Oh, no!! and when it's self inflicted it makes you feel so silly...ask me how I know?? But will we quit stacking up good stuff? NO!! Hope you heal fast.

  21. Oh my gosh! That's so terrible! I hope you feel better soon!

  22. My dear you are a Knutt. That's K-nutt with a capital K. But adorable. Maybe no more vertical storage? Subdural hematomas scare this old nurse not that you have one. Feel better. And HUGS.


  23. CRIKEY as our down-under bloggy friends would say!
    Lucky it wasn't an eye or something worse!
    Take care of yourself and be careful out there ~
    it's a junk eats junk world!! xx Suzanne

  24. Goodness, glad you are okay. Gotta love bangs ~ mine are hiding a burn from my curling iron right now! Ouch!

    I'm having a WEDDING BLOG PARTY on June 25th (my first ever to hostess!) so please stop by if you are interested and read about it ~ I'd love to have you join us! And there will be a sweet giveaway, too!

    Big TX Hugs,

  25. Be careful...maybe a cute hard hat next time! I am going to show the picture of your "stuff" to my honey to let him know I am not the only one with lots of "stuff"!! Thanks!!

  26. Oh my please be careful. Maybe someone should make your stack a little shorter. I actully do the silliest things at the stores to get things down because I am only a 5 feet tall. Like standing on the bottom shelf and using something longer to pull things down. You need to learn the duck trick. Hope you heal quickly.

  27. Sorry you hurt your noggin:) Hopefully will feel better tomorrow. Cute picture, BTW! Have a blessed evening! HUGS!

  28. oh no! be careful sweety! i'm glad youre o.k.

  29. OH NO! Not fun!
    Hmmmm . . . I bet you are gong to do a little bit of reorganizing . . .
    :) HAGE! Karen

  30. Oh no! I hope you are feeling better!

  31. Ouch! I hope it's not too painful still. Take care and thanks for the warning, sorry you had to 'live and learn' for the rest of us though. Take Care! Theresa

  32. Oh Debra, this sounds painful. I hope you'll feel better soon, girl!

  33. Hope you feel better soon!!! Blessings~~~Daphne

  34. Oh my goodness Debra! I'm so sorry about your mis-hap! I can't say I've been injured that badly but I just today had a FEW things fall on top of my head while moving stuff from my old space to my new one. It's amazing how I get things to balance for displays! ha-ha!

    Please do take good care of your wound. Prayers for a speedy recovery are in the works!

  35. You were attacked by your stuff!!!! Gads! ;o)
    Glad to hear you will be feeling better. Kathy

  36. Yikes!!!Hope you are feeling fine today.

  37. Debra, This picture looks like my storage unit! My dad always said "I was an accident waiting to happen". This kind of stuff happens to me all the time. I hope you found the stuff for your memory board and that you heal quickly!

  38. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooooooooo sorry you got hurt. Hope you are better now. I love your hair cut. I would love to do similar. I cut my long hair off last October & went "natural" which means I am letting God highlight it instead of the salon. Sometimes I like it & sometimes I don't. Your hair is adorable. Glad you have bangs too after this. TAKE CARE! Charlene
