One of our pink sisters at Make Mine Pink suggested that we all have Show and Tell Mondays on our blogs! A fun idea that reminds me of my long ago days in elementary school.......everyone brought their favorite toy, book or story to share with the class!
Well class, today is my first Show and Tell Monday so come see what I have to share.......
Not being a crafty person, I cannot post photos of my latest creative endeavor but I have been busy for a few days restoring linens!! Watch for these items to be listed at Grandma G's very soon!
The stack of tablecloths and other linens on top of my washing machine will next be ironed, photoed and then listed for all to see! By the way, I never machine wash or dry vintage linens!!! These old fibers can easily be destroyed by some of our 'modern' cleaning methods!
Since I was in the laundry room so much the past few days I decided to also show and tell the room!!
Here is part of my vintage laundry collection on the wall to the left of my washer/dryer. Don't you love the stocking dryers??!!
This cabinet stores, behind the glass doors, more of my vintage treasures, part of my teapot collection, vases, etc. The three bins always end up full of things that don't belong there as well as my iron and other small supplies!! The solid doors at the bottom hide away all the laundry supplies. By the way, where else would you store three large pumpkins?!
Ahhhh, my favorite.....the deep utility sink where I soak those vintage linens.....at least I have a nice view out the window when I stand there to work! On the left is a garden trellis mounted to the wall to hold some of my vintage appliqued tea towels.....LOVE the whimsy!!
Here are the cornice boxes above the two windows in the room yet another place to display more vintage laundry treasures. The two name plates hung in my mother-in-law's kitchen; there are actually four in the set and we have the ones for my hubby, Chris, and his Dad, Clifford. Sis-in-law has hers and the one for Mom!!
Hope you have enjoyed your peek into my favorite room and I invite you all to come over with your irons and help with those linens!!
See you next week for Show and Tell Monday! Please visit Grandma G's to find your own treasures!!
