Clothesline

4059 clothespin sunset 

I love clotheslines.  My earliest memory of a clothesline was at my great-grandmother's house in Nebraska, with clematis climbing up one post.  I went back as an adult to see this house and it looked just like I remembered.

My grandma didnt have a dryer so that was all she used. I can still remember her taking down the wash. :)

Great picture. I remember my mom hanging our clothes in the back yard, with clothes pins. I remember playing with the the clothes pins and sometimes pinching myself or my brother with them. I loved the way the clothes felt and the way they smelled after coming off the line.

You've brought back a wonderful memory for me, too, Karen! I've even thought about getting one for the Squash House!
Cheers!

I love this photo. I don't have too many clothesline memories myself... larger items were usually draped over a chair or two in the living room. My sister and I would then make forts out of them.
