Lovely Basket and Laundry Whites

the fun is having lots to do and not doing it.” ― Mary Wilson Little

One of my treasures that I found at Home Goods
last week. I added a few sprigs of lavender and

Love the linen lining.
This basket was in the clearance aisle for 10.00.
A steal...

I also found the laundry softener in the
clearance aisle. It is infused with lavender oil. Can't wait to try it.

I put my dryer sheets in a vintage jar so I don't have
an ugly orange box sitting around.

Linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm
again today. Happy White Wednesday! Blessings~

Oh goodness, even your laundry supplies are gorgeous!!! Now you've inspired me to find something prettier to put my dryer sheets in. I don't have my own washer/dryer...sniffle sniffle:(

Leave it to you Sandi to make doing laundry look like fun!!

Ellen said...

I'm with Victoria on this; your laundry touches are inspirational to say the least. Love the idea of the glass jar filled with the dryer sheets.

Thanks for sharing!

What nice finds. I was just there today and came home empty handed.

I get so inspired by you, sweet one. You always bring such a lift to me with your gorgeous uses of items around the house. Love the laundry basket idea also ... but it wouldn't work with Mr. around.

I see I have been missing too much with you ... love the kid-lings pics, they are adorable, my friend.

Have a lovely eve ~

Just when I start to think about sprucing up my laundry space, I read about 2 great laundry posts on WW. I am going to put my dryer sheets in a jar, too. Thanks for the idea.

Laundry must have been the theme this week...LOL! Cute basket and I want to try some of those products sometime...we sell them at the shop.
Hope you have recovered:)

Love the jar for the dryer sheets!

Your basket is awesome Sandi. What a great find (and a steal too)
I have to put my dryer sheets in something pretty too, cause there is nothing pretty about the box they come in huh? I love how you added the lavender!

I love that basket, Sandi, it's the perfect pale color with that beautiful lining. You find the best things (I know, I always say the same thing but it's true!). Bet the laundry item will be great, I've seen that at a well-known web store.

Happy day! Hope you're having a great day, sweet friend.

Hi Sandi, I love the quote from E.B White!
What a cute basket you found, and such a great price.
The idea of fabric sheets in a jar is fantastic, I hated that the box would never really close again once it was opened.
I can't wait to hear what other ideas you have swimming around your creative brain!

Thanks for sharing!!!
