Laundry on the line...

I've been searching for a vintage-style clothes pin bag
and  (Dime Store Chic)
had a clothes pin bag for a reasonable price.


The laundry bag was simple and I wanted to add
something more to jazz it up a bit.  


As much as I love to create things, I'm not a sewer.  
I added some mini ric rac and these sweet blue flowers.

It's now hanging up in my laundry room. 

Along with some of my other favorite laundry inspired goodies.
I'm hopeful that Chris can find a spot in our yard
for a clothesline this summer.

There's nothing better than fresh,
crisp sheets and tablecloths off the line
.

Your clothespin bag is sweet! Not to mention your decorations in your laundry room. Love them!

You may not be a sewer, but you sure have the art of embellishment down!

Jboo said...

That is so cute!! Love hanging laundry outside -- wish I had a clothesline too!

Line dried towels are pretty awesome too :) We'd love to have a clotheline in our yard as well someday. Until then, we've used a piece of twine stretched from the deck to a pole in the yard hahaha. Not cute in the least!

Oh~ Isn't that cute? I love the little embellishments you added. I love my clothes lines- especially for sheets! Nothing in the world like line-dried sheets.

Love your sweet laundry room. Mine is waiting for a re-do. xo Diana

Reading this post this morning reminded me to go check on the status of my OWN laundry!:-)

Love the trim you've added to the clothespin bag! Also, lovely decor to your laundry room.

So cute! But then everything you do is adorable!
Driving to Chicago soon to catch a flight to CA. We will see both sons and attend a mouse event. I had many late nights working on my miniature displays~crossing my fingers that I win a mouse or two!
Hope you have a good outing and a great weekend!

It's so cute!
You do have a darling laundry room.
I haven't ever dried clothes on a line outside. Hopefully it helps to have the wind blow it because I have dried many clothes on a rack indoors and clothes and especially towels turn out so coarse that it's almost like a loofah when it's time to dry off after a shower!

Hi pretty lady,

How cute is that bag??? You did an awesome job of spiffing it up. Your laundry room is so cute. I can't wait to show ya'll my redecorated craft area, I think you'll appreciate the work that went into it.

Have a lovely day,
Meri

I agree on the outdoor clothesline-nothing smells better then clothes on the line. I love your cute laundry room and the clothespin bag is adorable!

BucksCountyFolkArt said...

What a sweet laundry area! And knowing how much work there's to do in that room, why not make it as cozy as possible? My washer and dryer are in a dark, often damp basement so I'm just swooning over your decor!

Corey Moortgat said...

What a cute laundry room! I love that you have vintage laundry decor in there! We don't have an actual "room" for our w/d- they're located in the pass-through to our garage, so I'm always envious of people who can really decorate theirs!

GardenofDaisies said...

Please send Chris to my house after he finishes there! I want a clothes line in the yard too. Time to start using Mr Sun to dry the clothes. Your pin bag turned out so cute, and is perfect in there with all the laundry and mending items on the shelf.

I think the local hardware store may sell the clothes pins you are looking for. I do hang my sheets outside in the summer months!
The little blue flowers addede the right punch to your clothes pin bag.

I love the scent of line dried laundry too, Kim! I wish that I had a clothes line. Love your cute vignettes!
