A Collage of Sorts

My hubby and I had an AWESOME summer at the lake!  We closed up this weekend for the season and brought everything home.

In between MANY loads of laundry, I wrote a poem and finished it with this collage below:

laundry collage - finish

Beach towels and bath towels,                                                                                 A growing mountain, oh my!                                                                                      I exhale in one very, very LOUD sigh!

Shorts and sweat pants –                                                                                         For hot and cold days…                                                                                          Can I go outside now and just play?!

Swimsuits and bike shorts –                                                                                     To retire for the season,                                                                                              I feel a bit blue now for some silly reason.

Jackets and sweatshirts –                                                                                     We’ll wear this fall,                                                                                                  The piles are spreading out into the hall!

Blankets and bed sheets –                                                                                         To wash and store away,                                                                               Thankful for their warmth, I do have to say!

Undies and socks –                                                                                                         And T-shirts so numerous…                                                                                       If this was a joke, it would be rather humorous!

Old blue jeans –                                                                                                    Comfy and worn,                                                                                                         A little mending for the ones that are torn.

Dress shirts and slacks –                                                                                       Work clothes we wear,                                                                                        These sometimes take a little extra care.

Jammies and night shirts –                                                                                           I think I’m about done,                                                                                                 I hope you enjoyed my laundry day fun!

Happy Creating!  :-)))

  2. Love the poem and lively colors waking me up this morning, Jill! :)))) you and I were both doing load after load of laundry yesterday, as I was (finally) prewashing alllllll my quilt fabric. I bet if we all did that……we’d be in the laundry room for eons! Happy even more creative weekends for your fall! 🙂

  9. Hey Jillie,
    The poem is so priceless for this time of year for lake lovers and campers. It’s always sad and blue to close for the season but you have all the beautiful memories, pictures and art. Love the Sunflowers and fall leaves. I am particularly drawn to fhe flower drawings! Love, Pam

  10. Had a smile at the vision of all your clothes spread out for sorting, and the jumble of clothes in the collage is a lovely back drop to the poem. Now you can sit back down and get into your art again. Happy crafting to you…
