People have various methods of holding their clothespins when they’re hanging laundry. I’ve heard of clothespin aprons, sewing the bottom of a cute baby’s dress and using a hanger to keep it on the line, and more.
I love to hang our laundry on the line. There’s just nothing like that gorgeous Texas blue sky and sunshine to add the delightful aroma of pure sunshine to our clean clothes.
My sis is like me – loving the smell of sunshine on her clean laundry. So she hangs her clothes out to dry as well.
When she had a birthday recently I put on my thinking cap. Y’all know we like to make homemade gifts whenever possible, but what would she like. Hummm… I KNOW! I’ll make her a clothespin apron!
The herbs are going well in my Edible Landscape so I thought I’d take a few cuttings & try to root them in my kitchen window. I have a repurposed short, squatty, wide-mouth glass jar that I can use.
But I’ve always heard that when you’re rooting cuttings, a see-through jar can cause problems. It’s said that inside the jar should be dark. A dark jar keeps algae from growing in the water and also helps the roots do their thaaaang.
Some suggestions are to paint the jar or to wrap it in scrapbooking paper or something similar. Hummm…
So what did I decide to do? Say it with me kids: “Use Whatcha Got!” That’s right. 🙂 Check out this Homestead Hack.
