Being Home #5

Being home also allows me to redo a laundry room a little bit when I want to. I decided to put up some of my "original art." I did the embroidery of the geraniums behind the washer and I painted that little board behind the dryer and just hung them there. Some of you might have noticed the embroidery in the entrance to my sewing and craft room but I took those pictures down and decided to put one of them in the laundry room. Ever-changing, chicks!! If I wasn't home so much I doubt very seriously if I'd bother to take the time or initiative to do this. Maybe, maybe not. But I keep telling ya I plan on making every single room in this house a refuge from the stresses of the world—even the laundry room. Why do a menial boring chore in a place that isn't pretty? Get my drift. Now, let's see some of your laundry rooms and what you've done or plan on doing! Come on, don't be shy. Get to it. Not much money to hang a few pictures, seed packets or pieces of vintage linens even. I know because I had scads of them with which to do other rooms soon.

Little packets of laundry soap can make darling compositions when emptied. Just "fun-tac" them up and change them when you so desire.

I decided to hang another little laundry bag I made on this little short wall. It usually has my ironing hanging there so it isn't always visible with Love Bunny's shirts and pants hanging but when it's vacant it makes a tiny "statement" and gives me joy. Notice the border of shabby roses is still up there. Roses in a laundry? Yessssss, got a problem with that? Talk to your shrink, sweet chicks! :-)
Okay, gotta run and get some more things done. I'm never ever idle. Not too bad for an old chick, huh?!
