    Hello there…
    What a gorgeous laundry room you’ve featured. I’d love a shaker style shelf like that over my washer/dryer…

    Thanks so much for sending a little *link*love* my direction! I thought those barn lights were pretty cool – I am glad you thought so too.

    Here’s to living well,

    melissa, i have two questions, one rhetorical, one for real. … does everyone just happen to have the front loading washer? my top loader still works, i cannot justify getting a new one. but no one decorates for top loaders. i have no counter for folding or accumulating (HA). the real question is this: in the shower/tub i never see the soaps and i wonder what people do with them. my own set up is the tub/shower combo with the narrow horizontal window on which i put the shampoo etc. not pretty. any suggestions? i really don’t care for those hanging things off the showerhead. jkj

    The vintage bathroom makeover was perfect! I have two bathrooms of that era in my old farmhouse. Gave me some good ideas of how to make it work. I do love the retro tile, but sometimes feel a bit limited by it.

    So is Raised in Cotton a blog?

    Hugs, Fi

  17. Kristen

    What a beautiful place to do your laundry. That might even make doing laundry fun. Thank you so much for including me in your “inspiring finds”. I’m very honored, especially since you were one of the very first blogs I ever followed. :)

  18. Tammy S

    LOVE the sites….It makes my head explode with ideas (ha).

  19. Jocelyn Stott

    Great stuff here. I am coveting that green cabinet in that laundry room!!!

  20. Lisa~

    You can’t go wrong with a burlap feedsack. That’s my motto. And the laundry room….dreamy. I’d just st in there and turn on the machines so I couldn’t hear the commotion in the rest of the house. Lisa~

  21. Donna

    Great Links! Thanks!
