I can remember "helping" my mom hang out the laundry when I was about 6 or so. I remember this clearly because I burst through the clothes that she was hanging up as I belted out "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" at the top of my lungs. My mom just about jumped 2 feet off the ground and squealed about how I scared her half to death!! Oh how I loved scaring my mom!! As I got older I came up with many creative ways to improve my techniques. Doesn't she look so innocent and unsuspecting??? I'm so evil!!
Uh, where were we? Oh, yeah. Laundry...
I love natural things. Forget plastic when you can have something natural!! I LOVE wicker laundry baskets!
And isn't this handy dandy little clothespin apron just the cutest thing??
See the embroidered clothespin on the pockets?
I bought this apron at WalMart on clearance for a couple of dollars a few years back and just stuck it away for "someday". Our clothesline at the old place was overgrown by tree branches and the clothes ended up crawling with bugs and spiders galore!! Yikes!! So I was waiting for DH to trim the branches before I could hang out clothes again. And I waited and I waited... It just wasn't the highest priority on his list of important things to do. :-)
Instead of thinking about the loss of "convenience"...
Now I have plenty of opportunity to use my apron and my beloved basket.
It's all about perspective.
