My Vintage Bath

                  house 005

Several years ago, I took out the window in my very small bathroom and opened it up into the back porch.  I needed to get my washer and dryer out of the kitchen.  Yes, it was appliance row in there.  This 109 year old house wasn't set up for inside water, let alone space for a bunch of ‘modern appliances’.

I was thrilled to nearly double my bathroom space with the laundry room….making free space in the kitchen, as well.  Yay!

I like little old fashioned touches.  Opps, you weren't suppose to see that cotton ball in the corner of the window….keeping out the cold draft.

It appears that the lady, with her rolling eyes, sent this soldier a ‘Dear John’ letter. It’s a music sheet I couldn’t resist hanging with my washboards in the laundry.
