Call Me Crazy, It’s About Laundry

Good morning. I am getting ready to go to Honey Brook again this morning, ambulance but before I go I wanted to post something for you on my blog. Ok, go ahead, call me crazy, but I love my laundry room. Soon I am probably going to paint it a different color, I’ll still keep it a light color, but it’s needs painting and I think it would be fun to try something different. I wanted to share some of my old scrubbing boards and clothespins with you. Imagine a husband making these for his wife. Aren’t these just wonderful? Each one if different and to me they are little works of art.

Can you imagine what it must have been like to have to wash EVERY PIECE OF LAUNDRY BY HAND and then wring them out and carrying outside to dry!

It’s getting late, better go now. Maybe I’ll find more treasures for my country store along the way. You know I’ll take my camera!!! Don’t forget to visit again soon. Take care.
Happy day!

    I don’t think I’d even mind doing laundry in that room! LOL. I like the white walls in contrast to all your antique wooden items.
    You and your grandaughter are beautiful Carole!
    Have fun at Honey Brook! Bring home lots of goodies :-)

    CAR,
    I hope you didn’t get too tired working at your mom’s today. I just love that laundry room. Big enough to really work. Our is small and so laundry is folded elsewhere. I hope you found some things to photograph today.

    I love hanging my clothes on the line – but can’t this year as the puppy takes them off and hides them in the woods. I wonder what someone will say years from now when they find a buried pair of underwhere out there?And no thanks, I will keep my washer – even if it is making wierd wholes in our clothes every one in a while!

    Again, thanks for sharing your home with us.
    Steph

    your laundry room is wonderful, such a feel of history. I love the pegs and washboards and have one in my collection, would love to add more but just can’t find them here. I remember using these washboards on our farm as a child. We would do our laundry in the river.
    thanks for sharing and bringing bck memories.
