Laundry Labour

Image Courtesy Canadian House and Home

Isn't this a gorgeous laundry!... the beautiful blue, the flowers, I spy some rattan (addicted to the stuff) oh look, there's another floor runner (I'm seeing them everywhere now!)......... and what a great idea - a coat rack in a laundry. If I didn't have tiles, right up to the cabinets in my laundry, I'd steal that idea!

I must say, I am enjoying my laundry. Having space to sort and fold does keep one more organised... and I have big son well trained. "When you see that pretty basket, full of folded clothes, that's your cue, to take it upstairs and put it all away". So when he walks past the laundry, I scream out "basket?" .... and he dutifully trots upstairs with it... just like the Pavlov's dog experiments... easy!

Don't forget to enter my Spring Giveaway (previous post)... my boys are cutting up all the names, for the draw on the weekend. I sound like a bit of a 'taskmaster', don't I? Their future wives will thank me for all their training! A-M xx

  5. Oh A-M, they sure will thank you. With 3 boys of my own, I think it is really important to "train them young". It's good for them. And yes love that laundry but is that a coat rack or a towel rack?

  8. Hey A-M

    Love the idea of a give-away. Love the idea of spring.
    Mind you, there is nothing like the colours of fall in Canada. And oh the smells, mmmm.

  9. Hello again A-M

    I am confused about why you can't do a floor runner because "If I didn't have tiles, right up to the cabinets in my laundry, I'd steal that idea!".

    You totally lost me. Sorry.

  11. How old are your sons? My daughter's 9. Could we do a deal? Love the laundry. You should see mine. It's about 2m square and hideous. One day I will have one just like this image, or yours.

  12. Beautiful image, we just don't do laundry that way down under do we? Mines is in the passageway to the garage and back garden, someplace to pass through to someplace else. Enjoy the images and inspiration you share.

  14. Dear A-M, I love that laundry too! I love your laundry in your house also and all your laundry ideas, just bliss, as we all spend so much time doing laundry things, we had may as well do it in style and beautiful surroundings! I just love the flowers in your laundry in today's post too. Just gorgeous! Cocofemme x.

  16. That beautiful laundry makes me want to view the rest of the house. My previous laundry was a dream, I was always up to date with washing etc. My current laundry is a nightmare and the family are always asking where all their clothes are, lol.

    Love your home A-M, and your blog, thanks.

  17. Hi AM
    The laundry is fabulous. What I really wanted to say is good on you for training the boys. I did the same with my now 22 year old (he can even iron a shirt is better in the kitchen than his father will ever be)But be warned there comes a time when they just don't seem to have learn't any of the lessons you taught. You can only hope when there on their own they remember them once again.
    Kind Regards
    Karen

  19. Like I've said before A-M, if only your sons were twenty years older my search would be over.... xx

  20. Better to train them when they are young. Remember the sayings? "old dogs are hard to train".

    I surely know that your boys will be a wonderful men. I can sense that just looking at them on pix. Well, I hate my 6 senses sometimes §;-)

    hugs lot, Lady...

  21. Swoon! Adore the colours in that laundry..and the laundry itself!

    The view doesn't look half bad either. I may be inclined to do more laundry if I had a pretty view to look at while i did it!
