Well, girls, I know I said I was going to show you the finished room, but when I uploaded the pictures today, I had WAY too many photos, and decided to spare you that....I will do a follow up post on Friday with the before, during and after shots....promise....for those who really want to see it!
This week I will continue with the vintage treasures that live in my newly updated laundry room.....
I am sure you remember this little lamb salt and pepper from a few weeks ago, he sits by the vintage jars that hold my homemade laundry soap and dryer sheets.
This grease tin belonged to my mom, I remember as a kid frying bacon and saving the grease in this pot. In fact, I remember she saved most all of the oils used...funny, how we do not do that now....anyone know why???
I had several of these little bird planters, but in the midst of my purging mood, I kept only three and my favorites. (three still makes a collection!) I really love the colors. The framed vintage post card is one I have had for a very long time. I purchased it somewhere with the intention of hanging it in my laundry room, once I could get in there....it finally has a home (click to make photo larger)...I think it is so cute.
Here is just some of my favorites. The crystal vase thingy I found at Goodwill. I have several child's kitchen utensils and this holds them rather well. Vintage door knob and some little salt and pepper shakers top it off. I guess you notice 3 of the little bowl I have picked up here and there.... The framed prints, were just something I printed myself with the computer, sprayed Goodwill frames black and added embellishments of vintage buttons...I love how they turned out....and CHEAP!!
This monkey cookie jar belonged to my mom, and she had it for as far back as I can remember as a little girl. I have never seen another like it, and I just cherish it. I think he is so very cute.
I found this little adorable pin cushion at an estate sale and had to have him. He looks like my dachshund girls. Of course a few vintage linens make the grouping complete.
Thanks for stopping by today....and be sure to check on Friday if you want to see the rest of the pictures....Have a great weekend everyone!!
