The Laundry Line

A couple of years ago my wonderful family gave me a clothes line for Mother's Day. I honestly believe it was the best Mother's Day gift I ever received. Every year I look forward to the day I can hang the first load of wash out on the line after the long cold winter.

This year the first load was Rebekah's diapers. I love the look of cloth diapers on the line, and the natural bleaching of the sun is just an extra bonus. The second load was the sheets off our bed. Boy is it hard to crawl out of bed when you have fresh line dried sheets on the bed. One can just smell the spring time freshness. Needless to say that dream was interrupted by a wide awake 2 year old wanting her morning mama's milk.


  1. Thank you for your kind comment on our blog. I, too, hang out my laundry and I can't help but smile when I see our little one's cloth diapers hanging on the line! I thought I was the only one like that.

    All the best with your garden!

    PS: I like to sew for my girls, also. I'm going to check out your links for the skirt and matching kerchief, so adorable!

  2. With Mothers Day once again approaching what a great idea to get a laundry line. Many communities do not allow them. There are some great laundry drying racks available that will make air drying possible year round and on patios etc...


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
