President's Day Present

We've been due for a new Washer/Dryer for a while.  Our Dryer has been held together with glue for the last several months.  So, on President's day Andy and I went shopping.  A few days later, our new set was delivered.  It takes up quite a bit more room than our old set.  It really bothered me at first that it stuck out into the room so far but I am getting used to it.
I tried to clean up the room and change things a bit.  I must say before I post the pictures that I am a collector of bees.  I don't know what it is about them but I've always been fascinated by them.  I remember spending a lot of time in my mother's flower garden watching the big lazy "buffalo" bees (as we called them) hover over the open blooms.  I would let them crawl onto my finger and I'd bring them close to my face and inspect them.  Anyway, just a warning about the decor...



I love that I can tuck all the cleaning supplies down under the machines.

I was going to wait until I had everything all clean and spic and span to do this post, but let's be honest, when is my laundry room ever clean?  Maybe for a few days every several months but most of the time it is my holding place for all my clutter...papers mostly.  Therefore, I am deliberately leaving out pictures of the rest of the room.

I am pleased to give you a close up of something I made especially for the new look of the room.  I was intrigued when I saw on Pinterest that you could print on fabric and burlap.  I had to try it.  I found the perfect free download (also on Pinterest) and went to town. 

 I then glued it to some fabric and placed it in a frame.  I'm happy with the result.  

This is the third burlap project I've done in 3 months.  I think I'm forming a crush.  Except for the funny smell and the scratchy texture it's really a fun textile to work with.

I'm thoroughly enjoying my new laundry room.  Now if I can just get it clean...

  1. Your new creation is right at home among all your bee friends. Very cute! And your new appliances are wonderful.
    Now if you want to talk messy laundry room--on second thought, let's not!
