A sweet blogging friend reminded me of something today. Lecia at FARMHOUSE PRIMS does great needle punch work. She a very sweet and talented person. Please stop by her blog. Click here
She is working on a new project that shows pics of back when hanging your clothes out on a line to dry was the thing to do. I love the thought of air dried clothes and long to be back in the mountains were the air is clean and fresh and be able to hang my clothes out.
My grandma and grandpa...
....had a clothes line in the back yard. It looked like this.
I think there was a metal tube it fit in that was put in the ground so it would stay up. And when not in use the hole was covered.
I remember also I think, that grandma used one of these til she couldn't wash clothes anymore and had them sent out....
Oh my goodness....I just googled that. You have to go there. Google old washing machines. It will make you glad you have the machines you have. I complain about the stackable one we have in our apartment. It is uncomfortable to bend and try to get clothes out because I bang my head on the lid that doesn't go all the way up because the dryer is up there. LOL I should be grateful I don't have all the work that Grandma had AND that I don't have to go to the public laundromat. Something that I did have to do just 3 years ago. Anyway google old washing machines....we've come a long way baby...as the saying goes :)
