It Should Be Laundry Day!

Ok! Admit it! I can't be the only one out there with laundry that has been sitting on the couch for a few days! What a site, this has got to be one of my least favorite things to do, but when it's done it feel so good!
Well, instead of folding clothes I decided to hit a few estate sales this week-end. On Friday I went to a sale where I was able to purchase a bookshelf. The color was great, a creamy white, with just the right chippy paint. I'm hoping within the next couple of months to turn our "computer, man's room" into a sewing and craft room. Hubby doesn't mind and it will eliminate all my fabrics and paper from creeping out all over the kitchen. But, more on that later. Here is a picture of the bookshelf, it's still in the truck so the picture isn't that great.

Another find this week-end was this sweet child's book, "Grunty Grunts", the pictures are so sweet. The copyright date is 1921. Here are a few pictures from the book.

Well, after taking a look at my laundry picture, I couldn't take it so I waved my magic wand over the pile and finished it!

Much better!

I'll tackle those darn socks tomorrow!

What a cute post Debbie! Love before and after laundry pics. Your living room is super cute! Good job scoring on that bookcase and cute little book.

Take care!

What a lovely couch you had under all that laundry! I wonder if I have one under mine? I'd better get ironing to see...(I haven't seen couch in years!) Pam
