I have a clothesline!
Morgan spied it and declared, “I’M NOT DRYING MY CLOTHES OUT THERE!”
I said, “I’M NOT EITHER.”
Whew. Teenage crisis averted. I do have clothespins, though.
They are tucked into a bucket that hangs from the line.
And I do intend to use the clothesline.
Clotheslines are making a comeback. Like home preserving and raising chickens, hanging clothes out to dry is trendy. It’s environmentally-friendly and frugal. I would like to say that I’m trendy or environmentally-friendly or even just frugal, but none of those reasons are why I put up a clothesline.
I plan to hang sheets out in the breeze. And even some selected clothing, and other items. The flap of sheets in the air….. The sweet smell of the woods and the wildflowers in my clothes…. It’s appealing. But the truth is, the clothesline is essentially…..a home decor item. There, I’ve admitted it. I put up a clothesline for decoration. Because a farmhouse needs a clothesline to be a real farmhouse.
I just think it’s cute.
What about you? Do you have a clothesline? Do you use it? If you don’t have a clothesline, do you want one?
