HOw do you feel about laundry? I love doing laundry ~ it’s one of my favorite jobs, which is fortunate since I am the only laundress available here. Laundry is like a story: it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It starts with mess and chaos, and that’s the drama of the story. The conflict comes during the wash and dry cycles ~ all that spinning and agitating, softening and drying. And, then, my favorite part of every story, the resolution. One ends with stacks of neatly folded textiles, tucked away in drawers and cupboards… Randy’s stacks are colorful, whereas mine are muted and neutral. Having a space that reflects my love for laundry makes wash day an even happier time.
The clothes pins were my mother’s that she used during her basket-making years. The vintage hangers were, in part, found objects and in part, etsy purchases. The skirt hangers double as rug hangers from time to time ~ a simple way to temporarily display a small hooked rug.
The fact that Michigan weather is so varied and unpredictable (and often uncomfortable) highlights these simple, quiet moments.
Wishing you a joyful, safe, sunset-filled weekend!
