the Laundry room~


Morning all~ Woke to a scratchy throat, cough, and a general feeling of achiness today. I will go get some more echinacea tea and Zicam as I cannot take alot of over the counter medication and rather choose not to. I'm going to get my routine done this morning then rest for the remaining part of the day...again its supposed to be in the upper 80's to low 90's today...and its only May!!! Have every window in the house opened up to let in the glorious breeze right now....
I'm needing some advice here from my friends. As you know i've decided to re-decorate my laundry room and i'm trying to find some light blue cotton duck ticking material...i've found a fabric sites but i'm not sure if I should order online or not. I've never ordered fabric online....many other things just ot fabric....so, if you have some resources that you feel like passing on to me I would welcome them. Its hard to know who is reputable or not. Once I have the material...I can finalize the paint choices...I'm thinking of adding in a soft yellow too. You can either email me or post a comment here...thank you for the help!! Blessings one and all...xo

Hey Mindy...add 100 mg. of zinc to what you're taking. No more, though. Then, when you're better just go to 50 mg.

Works like a charm!

Thanks for sharing the wonderful photo, and details of your day.

Love to you.

Hi,
Your laundry room souns like it will be a neat place to be. I have my laundry room in my garage in florida and I wish I had a picture with me. I have a vintage wallpaper border, floewrs and a teddy bear in the area of the washer and dryer. I have lace curtins and all the things I love in my little laundry area....Good luch and post a picture of the room when finished please.

Mindy, I buy fabric online from the States all the time and I have never, ever had a problem in receiving it all the way over here in Australia! I'm pretty indiscriminate from whom I buy, as long as I love the fabrics and they are the right price *smile*
So if you have found the fabric you like, I say go for it. Who are you looking at getting it through? I may have ordered from them myself.

I hope you are feeling better real soon, I will send healing thoughts your way...

Hugs xx

Hi, Mindy!

I've never ordered fabric online but I've heard that Denver Fabrics is a very reputable source. I've been on their site before and they have LOTS to choose from. Also, have you looked on e-bay?

I've never ordered fabric online..but JoAnns has a 40 or 50% coupon off for online orders...do you have a Joanns where you are? Hope you feel better soon. I too am battling a sore throat.

Love the image of the clothes hanging on the life. I wouldn't order fabric on line. I gotta touch it, but for something as standard as ticking you should be fine.
