One of the many things I will miss about my cottage here in Idaho is my laundry room/
pantry. This room was converted from an old back porch and has windows all around
making it always bright and cheerful. Of course you know me, and it received a few
decorative touches because that's just what I do.
David added open shelves above the washer and dryer that not only store
laundry soap, etc, but baskets filled with extra towels and a
picnic basket or two. This old thermometer was in the house when we
bought it. I hope whoever buys our house loves this vintage piece too.
The shelves go right up to the ceiling. So handy.
At the other end of the back porch is room for baskets. I can only imagine
what the movers will say when they see all of my baskets! Oh and of course
the pantry shelves that David built for me.
I try to keep them neat and organized, but they don't always stay that way.
Did I ever tell you that I do not own a microwave? Yes it's true. I had one years ago
but did not use it much. That's why we have one of these old fashioned hand crank
popcorn poppers. Easy to use and it makes yummy popcorn. Popcorn is one of the
very few things that David prepares and trust me, he has turned it into an art form!
I always walk down to our local co-op, so these totes come in handy.
And I have one of these French market baskets too.
I don't know if I will be able to get our milk in glass bottles in Victoria. I sure
have enjoyed buying it this way. The milk tastes better and it's so eco friendly to
recycle the bottles.
My cute vintage laundry bag. Don't use it, but I love to look at it.
Some extra quilt storage in a primitive jelly cabinet.
This vintage clothes pin apron is one of my treasures. I really do hang laundry
out on the line too.
Seems silly to get all weepy and sentimental about a laundry room/pantry,
but hey ~ that's just me.
