I don't have an actual laundry room. But, if I did, I would have it decorated with vintage baby clothes and doll dresses and toy irons and ironing boards and toy mops and brooms and other sweet adorable vintage household chore toys. What I do have is a washer and a dryer in a closet in my hallway. It has bi-fold doors and opens up into the hallway. I have shelves above the washer and dryer for storage that hold boxes of STUFF - Greeting cards, tissue paper, wrapping paper, gift bags, ribbons, cookie cutters, my surplus laundry detergent and extra bottles of dish soap, emergency candles, scented candles, flashlights, lanterns, batteries - all the things a family needs to have, but never has a place to put it. I would be lost without this storage area, so I am happy to have it. (But, I do dream of that cute laundry room full of vintage goodness.) But, I do wish it had some character and more appeal that boxes of stuff.
I do have a few quirky things in this area to look at and amuse me while I do my mundane chores. Like a Viagra clock. I don't even need a clock in that little area - but the site of that blue Viagra going around and around on the second hand just cracks me up. Right now I have a stash of old lampshade skeletons and baskets hung up across the top until I have a use for them.
As for the "collection" per say - I have picked up several quirky wall plaques over the years with silly sayings on them. I decided to put them on one wall by the washer for me to enjoy.
Not exactly the crowning jewel of my collections. But fun nonetheless.
You know it!
I don't feel this way. In fact, quite the opposite.
I do kind of feel like this one sometimes.
At least around some people.
This one is true. I am usually responsible.
You should always be happy to come home, I think.
I had a big collection of plates too, but I released them to the booth. I kept the camper one though.
Maybe I'll have a camper someday and I will hang it by the door.
A personal favorite. I'm always behinder.
Can you read that one? "Anything that takes me two hours to cook should take you more than two minutes to eat." The Breadman used to practically inhale his food. That took me ALL DAY to make!
"SLOW down!" I would say.
I never look for these plaques, but if a particularly good one crosses my path, it will probably go up on my wall.
*A quick search on ebay lead me to all these great plaques.
No, I'm not bidding - but there are some good ones in there!
