Lemons + Laundromat



I've needed a new blog header for awhile now. I knew what I wanted but couldn't find it anywhere, so I had to take matters into my own hands. I ran to Trader Joe's and grabbed 10 of their best lemons and headed to a nearby laundromat. I definitely got a few "double takes" when I walked in with nothing but a bowl of lemons and my camera. Luckily there were a few dryers in the corner that no one was using, so I immediately got to work. I had a lot of fun and managed to get a new blog header and a few interesting pictures. Here are some of my favorites.

  6. Perfect!!!

    I bet that you did get some looks! I have been in a few situations, taking pictures, that I have received some perplexed looks. But, the pics are certainly worth it. :)

    I LOVE your new header, it totally matches your blog name, which I'm sure is the desired effect!!

  14. Wow, Marcie, these pictures are fabulous! It looks professionally done. Very creative of you! Thanks for your sweet comment today (and everyday). It's so fun having a blogging friend that I actually know and have seen in person. The new header looks amazing on your site. I feel like I need to do something with mine too, but I don't know what. I'll have to work on it. ;)

  21. I really like your new header Marcie. Looks very professional and what's even better is you had fun doing it. I love a girl who loves to do laundry!

    But do you like putting it away? I love all of it - including folding (all those years working at Gap) and ironing, but somehow stop in my tracks at putting it away. uh-oh
