peachy weekend

So, house project wise, this weekend was a little slow. Peter did tons of yardwork, for which I am so grateful. And I mainly cleaned and did countless loads of laundry. Why is it that I let my laundry pile up so high I, one, run out of things to wear, and two, spend all weekend folding clothes? One of my least favorite things to do. On that note, I would like to give a shout out to my laundry room. While walking/riding bikes around the neighborhood recently, I have noticed a lot of older homes around us do not have indoor laundry rooms. They are either in front garages or back sheds, and although my laundry room is not big by any means it provides a lot of storage and the ability to sort, wash, and dry in the comfort of my house. In all her glory...


The rest of the weekend was spent receiving and waiting for my
Redoute prints from Ebay. I have loved these prints and artist for a while now and knew they would look great in our front room. I was hoping to find one of his vintage books, but I fortunately found someone who sells the individual prints straight from the books. Two have arrived and I am waiting on a few more. Here is a sample....

We have also eaten A LOT of peaches this weekend. One of the perks of having a almond farmer father-in-law, who happens to grow amazing peaches on the side. They have been in smoothies, sliced, diced, on cereal, and are going to make an appearance on waffles tonight. Thanks Sammy!

I think those prints will be just the thing for that room. Excellent choice!
