Folksy Friday - washing day

Apologies for my absence - loads going on the home front, but most importantly little man and I have been down to see mad granny and papa back home in Cornwall. We had a fab time...but now we are back it's laundry time. Despite doing some down at my mum's I am sure I am on my 5th load already. So, here are my Folksy Friday finds all laundry themed to make the chore so much easier. Now all I need is a sunny day so my whites can blow on the line - one can hope.

Gorgeous pegs to hang out your laundry from Ticketty Boo

And they need a fab pag bag to go in - this funky daisy is so much nicer than my old tatty one. You can find this and other designs in Wonky Giraffe's shop

For the days that it is too wet to hang the laundry out why not brighten up your home with a washing line mirror from Oink Design or a colourful peg print from Lapwing printworks .
With such gorgeous items there is no need for the wash day blues.
I'm off now to start load six and then urgh the ironing :(

Oh yes I can't wait to dry the clothes outside again, temperature up in north of scotland is still below freezing...brrr

Great folksy items you've found, especially like the pegs you've shown.

Hope the laundry ends soon for you!

Those pegs are very recognisable as Ticketty Boo's work aren't they? Such crisp, clear colour and design. Lovely choices. How people make beautiful things about such a drudgy activity amazes me!

love the pegs as well.

I hate laundry- every morning I hope that a Disney-esque fairy godmother might have come in the night. No such luck yet. x

I love the pegs too but think the washing would freeze on the line at the moment!

You have made me think about my pile of ironing too!!
