To cute to pass up...


I saw this cute idea on someone's blog a while back. I wish I could remember who's it was, so I could thank them.

In our house we all enter through the garage, and then come through the laundry room door. I have always tried to make the laundry room look as inviting as I can. The days that the laundry is stacked a mile high, is a totally different story. :) I have always put pictures, quotes,etc. in there. I should mention, not only family comes through that door, but about 95% of the kids friends, etc. enter there too. I found this darling idea a while ago, and am going to do it! I love the fact of the simplicity this brings. Canvas, paint, and a picture of those I love! I will post the finished product when I am done.

Those are adorable. Thanks for the idea! I have the same thing here. I'm about halfway through getting the laundry room entry more inviting!

what a great great idea! I am totally stealing it. :) But not for my laundry room (which is a tiny closet under the stairs), but probably with some cute scrapbook paper modge-podged on, then the photo to hang in bedrooms or the living room. Thanks for sharing it!

I have always thought we had the same taste in design also!
I would love to see what your friend makes. Mine came in a ziplock back so I put them in the plastic container that holds the rest of the decor for the holiday. I want one for each holiday.

Those canvas pictures are so great. I love the idea.

I'm intrigued by the device below the pictures! what is that?
Poor Jake has to walk through my laundry constantly, these boys must think that is normal so their wives can thank us (when they find them)Did you try the energy pill yet? it truly is amazing- let me know!

I remember having a plaque that read "Back Door Friends Are The Best!"

I am with you on making the entrance inviting. Although, ours does get messy with snow boots, coats, swim towels, beach chairs, basketballs, baseball bats, coats, hats, mittens... always depends on the season, but ALWAYS a dumping ground for excess baggage.

Michelle,
I love your blog! I can't believe how much your kiddos have grown up. I think I would still recognize Ben but Nate has changed so much. Everyone is still those adorable kids I loved to teach. Claudia
