I bought her at an antique shop oh, about 10 years ago. Isn't she cute? When I saw her, I immediatly fell in love with her. She is very well made and just so cute, like a fun playmate for Monday washday (anyway that was the day in our house)
Her face is embroidered and I just love her satin-stitch pink lips. All of her hair is done in short loops with what looks to me like perle cotton. I really am partial to gingham and her dress and hat are sooooo darling.
Her dress of course opens in the front and also the 2 large pockets in front of her dress. She holds items for me that are waiting to be washed but that I don't want mixed in with the rest of the laundry.
Speaking of washday, I wanted to show you a few pics of my laundry room that Mr. Honey made for me. He has been working on it now and again all winter and now it's complete! I love the backsplash that he installed for me. We found it at Home Depot.
The washer and dryer are hidden in a closet with folding doors. Mr. Honey built lots of shelves in the closet too, along with another closet next to that one where Hazel now hangs.
He put in as many cabinets that would fit in the small room so that we could use them for storage of all cleaning supplies and such.
He painted the doors, cabinets and all trim a soft white as per my request of course. First he painted the walls a tomato red which was no easy task, those of you who have used red paint, you know what I mean.
Well, I loved the color but decided that I couldn't live with it for very long, so as per my request again, Mr. Honey repainted the room in a color that looks like the sky and reminds me of clotheslines and a soothing clean feeling- much better now:)
Mr. Honey is a very patient man and is so good to me, he didn't even complain about the color change, he just shook his head and laughed a bit. He knows how particular I am about color and he has a perfectionist personality just like his wife.
Thanks Mr. Honey:)
I havn't had time to do much decorating yet except lay down a new rug, Hang some towels and of course a quilt, which just happens to be my " A Womans Work is Never Done " quilt. It's kind of a bad picture but how do you think it looks in my new Laundry Room?
