Saturday, September 10, 2011


Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you're all having a nice weekend so far.

As promised, today I'm sharing my laundry room with you.  I don't think I've ever showed the
entire room in one post... it's either been one side or the other.  I wanted to put together a 
post that would give a better sense of the room in its entirety, so I could replace what I have
on my sidebar.

The above photo gives you a look at the view from my mudroom into my laundry room and kitchen.

My husband and I built the shelf below the cabinets a couple of months ago.  Some of you may
remember the post I did about it.  It fills in the space nicely and helps to camouflage the faucets.
It's nice to have something pretty to look at while I'm doing the laundry, rather than just a blank wall.

Below is the view from the kitchen looking into the laundry room.

I like to keep all the walls and trim white in my home, not only to help bounce the light around a room,
but also to make it easier to bring in my antiques that have their original paint in various shades of
color.  I used a nice warm, chalky shade of white called Cotton Ball from Ace Hardware Stores.  I first
bought it years ago, before our little town had a Home Depot or Lowe's.  I still love it and use it today.

The vintage tool caddy and jars are perfect for storing my twine and scraps of ribbon.

I chose subtle accents of green and purple to add fall color to my home this year, mostly
through hydrangeas and lavender.  I like using green apples as well, as you can find a never-
ending supply at the grocery store, and they're a delicious, healthy snack to have in the house
for the kids....... though they don't eat them as much as I'd like them to. ;-)

I hope you're not all getting sick and tired of looking at pics of my home, because I still
have a couple more posts to put together of rooms I want to update on my sidebar.

Next, I'll be sharing my kitchen/dining room, and then onto the living room.

And, on a final note, I'm not one to write about my personal feelings on my blog, but
with the anniversary of 9/11 coming up tomorrow, it's on the forefront of so many American
minds.  I just want to express how much my heart goes out to all of the families and people
who were effected by the horrible tragedy that was 9/11.  The memorial they built in New
York is absolutely beautiful and perfectly fitting for the void that was left in so many lives.
My heart fills with pride when I think of all of the Americans who risked and even gave their
lives to save others on that horrible day in American history. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog.  I hope you all have a lovely day.

'Til next time... 

~ Jo :-)
