All of my friends & family consider me a "neat freak." "Annal Annie" (my middle name being Anne) is a term my hubby often used in the earlier years of our marriage. My brother-in-law has accused me of following he & his family around with a dust buster on their visits. Although, I have mellowed over the 22+ years that we have been married, I still like things tidy & somewhat orderly. I am really not that bad, I just have the theory "that everything has its place & should be in it." Hey, I have 2 chihuahuas, 1 poodle mix & a 16 yr.old teenager living in our home, I have "budged"...some....
So, I couldn't resist this picture when browsing vintage clip art to use for craft night. I love laundry room decor anyway, so I was thrilled with the way this little bottle turned out.
I started with an old chemical brown bottle. Printed images from various clip art sites & an old dictionary. Tore them to give a ragged edge, & aged them with distress ink. Modge podged the art on the bottle. Then added cheese cloth & little bits & bobs with glue. Added an old starch sprinkler to "top it off.
I had to use this comical expressions "Housework Makes You Ugly!" I smile every time I look at this little bottle perched on my laundry room window seal. Hey, whoever said "A Woman With A Clean House Was Boring" did not know me, The Cranky Queen! Happy Housekeeping.
