So pearls it is! I just adore this jar - these are mostly pearl strands that Momma picked up at yard sales and thrift stores .
I have had fun trying to add to the collection -because they have to be cute and cheap.
The Jar sits on a sofa table in the Master bedroom and I smile every time I walk by this treasure.
Now onto the Laundry room. This is not my favorite room in the house, but it sure beats what I had twenty years ago. We will not be opening any cupboard doors, just because it would take to much time and space here. But the cupboards pictured here contain cleaning supplies, candles, tablecloths and toys for the niece and nephew. There's also one empty drawer and a junk drawer.This is a treasure that my Mother in law made for me at least 8 years ago. She captured exactly how I feel when I think of "home". This makes me cry every time I read it. It reads: I remember the softness and charm of the wide shady street, the great tree that hung heavy with the heat of August and in the winter, the warm contentment. I love remembering the simple pleasures of my Grandmother's home.
The deep sink is great for hand washables and drip-drying and plants.
Oh yeah - the washer and dryer (almost forgot). The cupboards above have detergent, paper towels, etc.
I do a load of laundry every morning and we leave this door to the "bonus room" open - but it does not make me get on that thing. Instead I head into the pantry....oh well. There is a built in ironing board on the wall next to the bonus room door, but I forgot to take the picture - it gets used by the kiddos.
The bonus room holds all the stuff that we should use everyday but alas, we do not. I want a pool table in here! This room is rather large (16x26) but I am not going to show you the other end because it's full of stuff that needs to be put away or sold in a yard sale. Sorry.
Okay, now for the flashback - I'll make it short.
This is June of 2006 - yes, June. We camping in Bishop one weekend with our friends R&T and their son, it was pretty warm so we decided to drive up to Mammoth Lakes where the trees are tall. We knew it would be cool but we weren't expecting the snow, as you can tell from the shorts and sandals. It ended up being a beautiful day with a snowball fight and laughter.
Thanks for joining me. Just leave a comment to join Flashback Friday.
