These photos are of my laundry room. The cross stitch is something I did long ago. The baskets are 'made in Poland' and were found at flea markets. They usually hold hand washables or small pieces to be ironed or mended. The glass jar holds extra clothespins. To the left is an old enamel topped table that I use for folding laundry.
Items that come from the dryer often get put in this wicker laundry basket, which sits on the washer, to be folded.
I have a vintage wooden ironing board, but for quick, small jobs I use this little board. The wonderful job Clarice did covering her ironing board got me motivated to finally get a cover made for this. The old one was ratty, but I had been procrastinating for some time. Now I'm so happy that it's done.
On the wall I have hanging an old washboard, an enamel washtub, and a wire rugbeater (which I just noticed didn't make it in the picture-sorry). These are my reminders that I should be thankful for modern conveniences!
The wall cabinet was actually made from an old window. My husband helped me make a wooden box for the cabinet and attach the window with hinges. We used an antique replica latch to close it. We added shelves and molding at the top. Right now it is filled with folded fabric and storage boxes of notions. On top are a couple more baskets.
Last night while out shopping I also bought some lavender essential oil, and this morning I mixed up some of Clarice's recipe for lavender linen water. I can't wait to give it a try today!
