Manic Monday - pull


Congratulations to Nancy of Goat Rodeo for being Mo's inspiration this week. Her pulled pork sandwiches provided the word PULL for Manic Monday.

Do you realize there are 17 separate entries for PULL in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary Online? And many more phrases that use PULL:

There's PULL tab, PULL-Down, PULL the plug, PULL the trigger, PULL one's leg, PULL a robbery, PULL a prank, PULL an all-nighter, PULL a face, PULL a fast one, PULL the strings, PULL a punch, PULL one's weight and more.

I don't think Mo realized the diversity of the word PULL or maybe he did.

Isn't the word PULL starting to look like you should pronounce it PEWL?

Anyway, here's my contribution to Manic Monday:

DRAWER-PULLS





from Henri II Buffet Cabinet (c 1890)


reproduction antique drawer pulls from my bedroom furniture


from a dresser my father made in the 1960s.

I was just wondering how much it would cost to replace the 34 pulls on my kitchen cupboards.

We wanted to change the pulls on our kitchen cabinets, but we couldn't find hinges to match.

Happy MM!
