It’s that time of year for me to go old-school and hang laundry on the line as often as possible. Why you ask? Because I can.
I reminds me of my childhood, of my son’s childhood, it saves me money and brings some simplicity to life. I don’t know really…but mostly because I can and I like it.
I started to hang my own stuff out on the line when my son was a baby and we lived on the site of an old farmhouse that still had T-poles up from the 50’s. We painted the steel poles and restrung them with new line out of nostalgia. We found that we liked it. We also had fabulous weather in southern Ohio, and could use the clothesline for many months of the year. If you hang laundry on the line, you obviously need somewhere to keep your clothespins. I picked up a cheap fabric clothespin bag at the store and got to work.
Fast forward 20ish years and that cheap bag is frayed and icky. Necessity being the mother of invention and all, I made a replacement. I repurposed the metal hanger inside and voila, a brand new peg bag 🙂
It’s constructed of fingering weight wool that I felted. I’m figuring it will last another 20ish years. And with that I shall leave you to go hang my sheets on the line.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to
make today ridiculously amazing!
