It is a great day here....sunny with a little breeze...PERFECT TEA-DYIN WEATHER!! I sell tea dyed fabrics at the shop and on ebay and my stock was way down after the spring open house and I had orders to fill for ebay. Today the line if full of cheesecloth, osnaburg and muslin. My clothline is an Amish style that runs on a pully system...one end is attached to the tree in the background and the other to a post on the deck. I can load this thing up! On that note......I wonder what my neighbors must think when they see all this hanging out there......"she needs to change her detergent" or "how DO they get so dirty???" or " she keeps tryin to get those stains out but they always look the same. " or "she is always makin stuff look dirty for her shop...maybe she actually sells that too?!!".....I can only imagine what goes through their heads.
While this all dries, I am off to Lowe's to get stuff for another project......hint hint..it's for the garden. Promise I will take pics!! Have a sunny day!!
P.S. I have received some emails asking me about where to get the recycled concrete I used for the garden path in the last post.....we went to a local paving company. When they go to repave anything and they have to take up the old concrete they grind it up. So just look in the yellow pages for a local concrete and or paving business and give them a buzz to see if they have it! It is very affordable!!!! aka.......CHEAP!

There's just nothing quite like a clothesline, and how fun to see everything hanging out to dry. I use mine a lot too, don't know what I'd do without it in the summer! Thanks for sharing, Dawn
