I'm here today...

...my laundry room...





almost all of the stained glass was my grandmothers, she made them. Se died when I was 3 years old and I don't have many memories of her. But I do remember the stained glass hanging in her home and I LOVE having them in my home now. They are very special to me. I made a few a long time ago and I dream of having the time to make stained glass again. I absolutely adore it!



here is my laundry I mean diaper sink...



and a picture of my grandmother and me...


This IS one of the reasons we bought our home, the laundry room and the wood floors, 40 windows, 10 + ft ceilings and a whole lot of potential. We didn't buy our house for the kitchen, bathrooms, walls, linoleum (that's gone thank goodness), plumbing, curb appeal, ect.... We painted, put in the black & white tile and were gifted from my wonderful father the best washer and dryer money could by. It's a mothers dream... really... they're absolutely awesome!





*********************************

although TODAY it is not quite as tidy

it is actually quite FULL of laundry

So I am spending my day

sorting.washing.drying.folding.hanging.putting away

LOTS and LOTS of clothes!

**********************************

Hope you're all having a wonderful rainy or not rainy day!

See ya later gator!

  2. Oh man. I. Am. Jealous. :) I have a "laundry closet" with the cheapest washer and dryer money can buy. :) But I only have half as many kids. For now. :) And our laundry closet is connected to the "office" which means most of the time I have laundry piled up all around me quietly screaming "wash me!" while I try and escape to blogger land. Great escape huh? :) One day...sigh. :)

  4. I wish I'd had the foresight to think about laundry when we bought our house. Our laundry is in the garage and I cannot even begin to count the number of times I've washed a load twice because I caught a rat in the act of sneaking into my laundry.

    Shudder.

  5. I wouldn't mind hangin out in that laundry room!! mine's more of the dark, dismal kind...ONE fine day when we own a house, I'd love for it to be a more inviting place!........maybe then i'd be more interested in carting all the laundry in there! Love the windows, too...and how special you can think of your grandma every time you see them...i love how life gives us special gifts!

  8. SUCH a great laundry room. What a GREAT place to do all that tedious work!

    Can you e-mail me your Ph# so we can set up a playdate? Shelly gave it to me a while back, but of course I lost it.

    I'll bring my laundry. ;)

  10. If we ever move (I pray every day we do), I will have a laundry room. Yours is so cute. Currently, my washer and dryer are in my kitchen. My husband planned it that way when we added onto our house. I didn't have a whole lot of say, but I will be VERY vocal next time.

  15. Rainy here as well today. I too have tons and tons of laundrey to fold and put away once the fellas are fast asleep.

    Your laundrey room is so cheerful and sunny. I think I would actually enjoy doing laundrey if I had a room like that. For now, I enjoy the cold dark dungeon..er basement.

  20. A very un-rainy day here! I am sitting outside. Couldn't be happier. Have to do laundry later--only one load (but only two people live here)! I love doing laundry. Someday I'll come over and help you. That would be a looooooong drive though.

  21. Wow! A gorgeous laundry room!!

  23. What a great laundry room...I love the yellow color! Wish I had counters to fold my laundry on, I have to use my bed :)

  24. Your laundry room is so bright and cheery! I wish I had a great space dedicated to laundry. Maybe that way it wouldn't be one of my least favorite chores!

  25. cute post! neat picture of you and gma and the glass she had made...family is special!

  26. That laundry room is awesome. A main floor laundry was at the top of my must haves when we bought this house. It's not huge, but it works well.

    I have so many of my Memaw's crafts in my house. She's been gone for 3 years and I miss her so much.

  28. I would love to know more abot the diapers you us!

  29. LOVE It. I have a laundry room with those washer and dryers. However I so have counter envy. I would love to have a room large enough to have that much counter to fold on. Right now I fold on my bed - but at least it makes me put it away right after I fold it since I have to sleep there.

    I need to add photos to ours- great idea. Love how you incorporated your grandmother into the room

  30. Definitely a not rainy day. It's 102 degrees today!

  31. Speaking of laundry......in the past year or so I've wondered about "organic" laundry detergent and its benefits. Do you use organic and what do you recommend? I figure of all people you might know! :) Would appreciate your thoughts, when you find the time.

    Thanks,
    Melissa

  33. That is an amazing laundry room!

  34. There are 3 things my mother says I should buy weather I can afford them or not...a washer, a dryer and a dishwasher! I have NOT purchased any of the 3, but would love to. Our washer/dryer are hand-me-downs from a relative who purchased new ones. They work...not great...but they work! Would love to hear your appliance recommendations though!

  35. What a cheerful room!

  36. Your laundry room is beautiful!

  37. ugh. every day is laundry day.

  38. I do love your laundry room. I have always told my husband that I want a large one in our next house.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I probably woulda bought that house just for the laundry room too - so light and fresh- I think it would actually make me want to do the laundry! : )

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love your laundry room! Those windows! My laundry room is a decent size, but it only has one little window. I always fold our laundry upstairs anyway, so our counter (which isn't nearly as big as yours!) is mostly a junk magnet. Also, we bought the cheapest washer and dryer we could get almost 6 years ago, and I've regretted ever since. Especially now that I'm constantly doing laundry! I still can't believe how much 2 little baby girls have increased the amount of laundry in this house! Our dryer already doesn't work as well as it should, so we've been seriously talking about getting a set of front-loaders in the next year or so. I. Can't. Wait.

  41. I have said it before and I will say it again...I love your laundry room. I love the sun catchers in the windows. Since I love doing laundry I would love a space like that. Enjoy.

  42. How is it that I can be so inspired by a (gasp) laundry room? I love it. See, YOU, my friend, make even laundry rooms look lovely. You've got the touch!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love your laundry room...it is so pretty and sunny! But I guess you do want the room you spent alot of time in to be bright and cheery! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that when we build our next house I will have to have a lot of windows in my laundry room. Thanks for sharing. I'm just going to imagine I'm in your laundry room next time!

  45. Kangen Water or Alkaline Water will take all kinds of stains out of clothes. Just soak them in it or pour in the washer when you run it. You can get it from some health food stores if they have a filter for it or from those who are distributing the machine.

    Also, letting clothes sit in the sun--even sun coming through a window will make many stains disappear, especially baby poop!

  46. Oh my I would love to have that counter to fold laundry on...I am so jellous. My laundry room is not very big and is the mudd room also and with triplets there seems to be many shoes in the over flowing basket.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your laundry room....it is huge compared to mine!

    Your stained glass keepsakes of your grandmothers...are priceless treasures indeed...I know you will cherish them forever!

    Love the girls pics above the sink and also the pic of you and your grandmother...

    Hugs
