I’ve been trying to clean up our house lately. When both James and I are spending so much time working it can get pretty messy because cleaning and tidying tend to be last on the list *eyes off the gigantic pile of clothes in the corner*…

But I’ve been trying to be more organised! First thing I wanted to take care of was my cupboard 😀 I have ranted quite a lot about my wardrobe because whoever designed it was a moron. It has 3 sliding doors, one of which opens to a wall which encases our water heater. The other two are divided by draws and storage cubes, either side of which is hanging space. Unfortunately one of those sides is useless because it’s not wide enough to put coat hangers in so out of 3 doors only 1 is useful >:(

…Anyway enough of the ranting, Nuffnang and Magnum are holding a competition where I’m supposed to tell you about my most indulgent fantasy, isn’t it sad that the first thing that came to mind was “a gigantic cupboard that could hold and display my things nicely” XD

So let me tell you a little story about my current cupboard, my most indulgent fantasy and what happens when you spend too much time organising your things…

Once upon a time Violet was trying to put her things in her cupboard but there was just no more room. She had been at it for hours to no avail.

She was no where near finished but was sooooo tired that she gave up.

Picking up an old magazine she decided to read for a while before heading to sleep…

Magnum Fantasy

Unfortunately she underestimated her ability to keep her eyes open and after 1 sentence had wandered off to slumber land…

Waking up, Violet was in for a surprise…

Magnum Fantasy

She handled it as gracefully as any princess would…

:O She had been transformed!

Magnum Fantasy

But where was she?? Again graceful as a princess it finally dawned on her…

Apparently in her wildest fantasies Violet dreamed of a huge mansion made of Ageha magazines. It was a gigantic manor house in the middle of sprawling highly manicured gardens. There was a hedge maze, rose gardens, well trained butler named Mr. Jensen. All of her money worries were gone as the manor was worth bajillions of dollars and she earned cash on the side from tour groups visiting the super awesome gardens. Also there were no bugs or spiders in the gardens, only lots and lots of adorable puppies!

More importantly there was cupboard space as far as the eye could see!

Obviously as this is in awesome slumberland high definition your tiny untrained eyes wouldn’t be able to cope with seeing the actual awesomeness that was this house… so to protect your brain from exploding here is an artist’s representation:

So what exactly does one do when living in one’s dream house?

Magnum Fantasy

Of course it’s time to socialize with the locals…

Magnum Fantasy

Or have some fun!

Magnum Fantasy

Of course there’s always work to be done so remember that modeling in 12 month old magazines is serious business, you don’t want to mess up on your first day by trying to…

Magnum Fantasy

If the work is all too much then you could always take a little break and look for some excitement.

Magnum Fantasy

Of course there are always more civilised things to do like…

Magnum Fantasy

Violet was no different from other girls, the thing she wanted most was to…

Magnum Fantasy

What girl wouldn’t want her own highly photoshopped magazine cover? At least the contrast wasn’t so high as to make her nose completely disappear!

After a long day of enjoying her gigantic magazine house there was only one thing left for Violet to do… enjoy the night with a horse driven carriage with James through her favorite Christmas window display 😀

Magnum Fantasy

Unfortunately during the carriage ride one of the horses tripped and sent Violet spiralling out of Slumberland forever…

Magnum Fantasy

She awoke with a start and some very princess-y four letter words when she realised her stupid cupboard was still only half cleaned…

Magnum Fantasy

It had all been a wonderful magical dream… then all of a sudden she felt something hard and metal in her hand… It was Miss Bunny’s beautiful spoon!

Magnum Fantasy

And Violet knew at that moment that even if her gigantic awesome house of awesome didn’t end up being made of magazines, even if she didn’t have a butler, even if no one wanted to pay to see her garden because it didn’t exist and even if the only horse drawn carriages in reality smell mostly of horse poop… everything would be ok because she was going to have the most well organised cupboard EVER. 😀

The end!
