Whatchamacallit 179: IKEA Postcard/Thing Holder

IKEA Postcard Holder

I bought this thing in 2010, shortly after moving into my apartment in Schöneberg.

Throughout the year, as postcards and greeting Cards Arrive, I fill it up – then in late November, I take everything down and start the process anew.

For reasons that will become apparent, I’ve had to undertake this process a bit on the early side this year – so it looks a lot like a bug that has been smashed against the wall.

Unfortunately, after a decade of use, the curly parts at the end are bent out of shape and it is increasingly difficult to get things to stay wedged in.

Typically I only “see” this Object for a few weeks – after Christmas cards Arrive, I basically cannot see it easily; when birthday cards arrive a short time later, it vanishes. However, it has brought me great joy, keeping things visible from where I sit working – I look up and cards are there.

Warm feelings ensue.

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
