I'm so easily pleased!

Look at my new, old clothes line! My clothes line used to be behind the house, and hidden from the sun. Mr M&M has made me a new prop clothes line and I love it! The clothes are all hanging to dry in the sunshine. I remember my mother had a clothes line like this when I was a child.
Can anyone else remember these?

Hello Carole,

Yes, we had one of these too. I love the washing hanging outside to dry.
Hope the sun shines for you lots.

Happy days.
Bev.

í have one too! In Holland i't's so nice to dry the wahing outside - lots of wind! And.. it's smells ice too!

My favourite smell - or one of them is washing dried in the fresh air with the smell of sunshine still clinging to it's fibres.

And rain on dry ground - that's a joint favourite. Lovely to see you have winter sunshine

Yes! My grandmother had a clothesline and I remember the smell of the fresh laundry hanging and the smell of the sheets when she put me to bed at night.
Also had a clothesline when my children were little and I hung diapers out on the line.
Lovely sunshine smells!

I so miss my clothesline! I didn't have one quite like this, but nevertheless I miss the smell of line-dried laundry (don't miss the occasional splotch of bird poop tho')

Oh yes indeed - when I was a kid in the 50's we had a line like that. Then Dad got a Hills Hoist rotary line for Mum and we kids thought that was the best thing since sliced bread! We had great fun swinging each other around and around when Mum wasn't looking!
