Summer Laundry day by LeiLiLaLoo
Laundry is a wonderful source of inspiration. I can remember walking round Girona in Spain years ago and admiring what seemed like hundreds of washing lines strung across brightly-coloured Mediterranean houses on the banks of the Onyar river, it was so beautiful.
I've had a big washing day today as I'm trying to get the house in order before we go away on holiday. I actually find this chore therapeutic; I love seeing all my vintage linen sheets and pillowcases hanging on the line (another thing I collect, by the way) and as it's so hot here everything dries in no time. Crisp, clean linen, whites, creams and greys, olive trees and lavender, I'll have to take some photos one day...
Kaarina Kaikkonen's outside installations using mens' shirts are amazing, just look at these photos, found via the Art Room Plant
Here's a selection of laundry-inspired artwork that caught my eye today:
