Yes, I'm a freak who takes pics of the line... it's just so pretty and nostalgic!
Rebecca, your pics are gorgeous! You might just find me camped out in your backyard someday, it's so pretty!

I've been thinking about a clothesline here, now that I'm in a house with a yard. I found this article for people new to line drying! Laundry Drying Dilemmas?

I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one taking pictures of my clothesline. I even took a movie of it the other day when all of my dh's aprons were blowing in the breeze.

That spinning clothes dryer looks great! Anyone know a place in TX that carries it for cheap? We don't have Menard's.

Also, for those of you with lines, what material is your line made of? Thanks!

Love the clothes line too. Everything smells so sweet after being dried in the sun. I hang out diapers and training pants in the sun especially.

Also, in the winter when it rains, I hang clothes in the bathroom (on a wooden rack) and the heat from the house dries everything over night. It is really nice to have everything dried when I wake up. Towels...well I dry those in the dryer.

Megs Mom, you cn make them out of anything that will is stout enuf to hold the weight of the clothes. I have had washing lines made from very stout string, my current one is a piece of steel cable, they sell plastic coated washing line string in hardware stores here.

I still find it totally strange that it is not normal to have clothes lines outside where you all live.
