I took some photographs while at my parents' house this week. One area of their home that I really love might be kind of surprising--it's my mom's laundry room. She's hung a photo of her grandmother that her mother (my Grandma Walker) framed with lace tatting she'd made. Alongside that she's hung several needlepoints that were given as gifts. The one on the left was in my Grandma Rosentreter's house for years. On the utility counter is a tole painted sculpture by my mom's sister, Edna, who also did the center needlepoint. The needlepoint on the right was done by my own sister. I love the homey feel of such a utilitarian space, and take creative inspiration for my own needlepoint projects from this area. Isn't it cute?
What's your favorite space in your own home, or where do you take creative inspiration in others' homes? Leave a comment on my blog.
