Old Linens and Laundry

Welcome to my laundry room!
This is one of my favourite rooms
in the home.
I am loving my new front load washer and dryer...
They seem to make doing laundry
even more enjoyable! You will find all my old linens hanging around here...

A basket with my old linen towels

This linen towel is especially meaningful to me
my aunt hand made it on the
loom when she lived in
Italy as a young girl.
She learned all kinds of things
from the nuns.

I love the tassels on this old piece.

My laundry room has an old fashioned
drying rack
here i have hung more
of my antique

This is a very old Javex bleach bottle.
If you look
you can see the

This old enamel pail holds all
my clothes pins...

There you have laundry room or i should
say multi-purpose room . We also
feed the cats and have their litter box
here....but i really
don't think
you would
interested in that
aspect of the room !


  1. I really like your linen with the "p" and that piece that was woven by your aunt. What deep rich history you have Pamela!

  2. ...wonderful laundry room! your linens!
    ...and your enamel pot is like one I have that my mom used in the "closet" on the prairies when it was too cold to "go" outside!

  3. I love your laundry!!! We are in the middle of renovating ours this morning!!! Have a great Saturday..... :)

  4. Such a nice laundry room filled with such pretties. How nice to own that linen made by a family member. My laundry room is on my to do list. I have to repaint it again (3rd time) No windows in there and it is too dark. I have the cat litter box in mine, too. Not very pretty. I see you have old clothespins in an old jar. I just picked up some at the flea market yesterday for mine when I get it done. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Well, I wrote a nice long post before-hit Post Comment and was closing out when the Word Verification popped up and I was already "out the door" so to speak. Anyway-Love the linens in your laundry room. We used to have cat litter boxes in ours too...yeah...NOT pretty! lol Diana

  6. I love your laundry room with the red appliances and the yellow walls. The touches of vintage linen make it a pretty place to spend time!

  7. Good morning Pamela.....what a pretty spot you have....and I so LOVE IT that you choose RED for your washer and dryer.....YOU GO GIRL!!!!



  8. Oooo, I LOVE your snazzy new washer and dryer!

    What a terrific laundry room you've got there. :-)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. I love your front loaders in red - very jazzy! Is your drying rack attached to the wall or free-standing? It looks so pretty with the vintage linen on it. Good for you to find a way to display them, rather than keeping the linens in the linen closet.

  10. OMG, is that washer and dryer red? I love your laundry room. I have a pass-through that just happens to have a washer and dryer in it.

  11. I love how you make even a mundane chore look fun. I love all the vintage linens.


I love love reading all your comments!! They mean so much to me...thank you..Pamela xo
