:: A present for my new (old) clothesline

Yippee I have a new clothesline. I know it sounds strange to be so excited something so domestic and mundane. But if you saw how frustrating the other one was, imagine sheets trailing on the grass collecting clippings and not being able to fit everything (with all the extra washing Tessa creates, hehe) then you would understand.

So I made a simple pegs basket from this tutorial, it was quick and easy. Perfect for my small window of opportunity, baby sleep time. I used a lovely old curtain already lined from the op shop and a baby clotheshanger which is much easier than breaking the ends of a full sized one.

Now all I need to do is plant something fragrant underneath and hanging washing will be a little bit more wonderful.


  1. Yay, new clothesline! It did look quite nifty standing up by the driveway though, you'll need a new driveway sculpture ;) Lucky you, being able to do laundry, we have so little water poor Jarvis is having to wear dispoables! Yuck!! Rach is back soon - we should get together next week :)

  2. I remember when I got a new clothes line ~ I was so excited too. Yay for new clothes lines! xx

  3. I'm dreaming of the day soon when I don't have to share our lovely big clothesline with 2 other houses. Enough room to hang clothes on! Simple pleasures! Thanks for linking the peg bag tut, I have been wanting to replace my ice cream container for ages!
