Redneck Clothesline

Its a beautiful day here today.  Bright and sunny, so I did some laundry and hung it out.  But even though we've been in this house for 9 years, I've never put up a clothesline.  Instead, I use our dog kennel!

Well I do like things to be multipurpose!  I call it our redneck clothesline.  You can see my retro clothespin bag at the end.  Here's a closer look...
It used to be my moms.  I'm not sure where or when she got it.  Lets look at the back....
You get a better view of the polyester fabric.  The sun-faded band is from years hanging from the deck of the house I grew up in. It had horizontal railings.  I spent many a sunny day reading and suntanning on that deck in my teenager-hood!

Before we leave my back yard, we'll look at another being that likes to sun himself...
And lets grab a handful of raspberries in my patch....
I hope its sunny wherever you are!

I had forgotten all about clothespin bags. This brought back memories of the one my mother had when I was a kid. Your raspberries look great!!!

Use what you can, when you can! haha what a great clothes pin bag, my mother used to have one made out of linen that we used every summer.

Your raspberries look so scrumptiously delicious! They remind me a lot of the ones my grandparents grew for years in their backyard when they lived on Oxford street down in Port Coquitlam. Few tastes say summer more for me to this day than raspberries (which are my all-time favourite fruit).

Thanks for the comments. The Raspberries are good. I've made some jam and encouraged many others to come and pick since we'll be moving in a few weeks and I won't get to freeze them like I normally do :-(

I think someone from Germany sent mom that clothespin bag, but I'm not sure. Funny I was thinking about that bag on Saturday as I hung out my laundry. I figured it had long ago fell apart - I had no idea it was in your possession!
