Some of my Favorite Things...

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when your feeling sad, just simply remember your favorite things and then it won't feel sooooo bad... (Can you hear Ms. Andrews singing?) Here are a few of my favorite things I picked up while shopping with my sister at Hobby Lobby. I had so much fun and excited to enjoy what I got.

I know this jar has a name but I can't remember what it is. I liked it and got it for $2.00. It should be fun changing the items inside every once in a while.

I also bought this sign at Hobby Lobby. I have been wanting to spice up my laundry room to help make it a more exciting spot for me. When I saw this I had to get it. This is the first and only thing I have placed for fun in my laundry room. I think it is a good start. Anyone ever feel this way!! Help Needed...I know I have felt this way in the past.

Anyone have ideas for a fun laundry room. I would love to see them. Have a nice day!!

That is cute! I love your laundry sign. I've been thinking of getting something for my laundry room but haven't found it yet. The other day we were at a fireside where a mission president and his wife were speaking. She said she put up a sign in her kitchen and laundry room that says, "Hallelujiah Anyway!" It reminds her that this life is meant to be a challenge so just do the laundry and say "Hallelujiah Anyway!"

I'm thinking of doing something like that since I like to grumble about the tons of laundry I do each week.

Hi Janice--some ideas I've seen before is filling a large decrative jar with clothes pins. I'm not sure how much space you have or if you have shelf space, you could try putting a fake plant on a shelf. I have a string hanging across the wall in my laundry room with lettering (w/ closthes pins glued behind the letters) that says "lost socks." Anyway I hope your having a beautiful day!

VERY CUTE! Fun happy flowers. AND I LOVE THAT SONG. I'm afraid I'm going to be singing at work now. AUGH!
I didn't know or remember you got the cute laundry sign while we were at Hobby Lobby. Did you get the jar there, or was that at the DI? Very cute. I'm looking for a small lamp to set on my dryer. BUT...You've seen my tiny laundry room. There just isn't much that can be done ther.

That is a cute sign! My laundry room is plain, sorry, no great ideas. Actually, the only fun thing I have is a big vibrant rug.

What kind of laundry room do you have? Large, med or small? Is it painted? Does it have storage? I have ideas just not sure what you are looking for. My laundry room is a pass through kind from the garage to the kitchen. I have mine painted bright yellow with a old fashioned washboard to hold keys, a shelf with silk sunflowers, picture of the family, yellow accessories, a wonderful sign my brother made me. Maybe you can post a picture and people can help out a little more. I love my laundry room. So much funner to do laundry this way. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
