Today's Quick Question

If you hang your laundry on the line to dry, do you have a clothespin bag to put your clothes pins in? (Vintage image for sale, via.)

I have a clothespin apron that I made. It's so much handier than a bag!

I have a clothespin bag that my mom made for me. :)

I one that I bought over 15 years ago it was bundled with a package of clothes pins, and I have one that I bought a few years ago that is hand made with vintage wooden clothes pins that have a portion of wire wrapped around them.
I bought the vintage bag to use as a pattern but so far it hasn't made it out of my kitchen.

I use to hang my laundry. Had a coffee can with a wire bale on it(a hanger). Now when I hang clohes they don't smell fresh.

i have a clothespin apron my mother made me 28 years ago when we got our first house. we had a clothes dryer but one of the first things we invested in was a clothesline. i've been drying my clothes outside ever since. i use our dryeronly when we are in a rainy period and there hasn't been a dry day in a week, and on emergencies. i love the sweet smell of clothes coming off the line.

I have a clothespin bag. It's old, but I don't know how old -- I bought it on Etsy. It came with its original clothespins. I love it! It hangs on the line and we just leave it out there.

Thanks for all the responses!

I've thought about aprons (you know I love 'em!), but the bag seems more practical, less bulky... But maybe it's just habit? ;)

Patty, why don't you think the laundry smells nice when dried on the line anymore?

I used to have a bag, but ot broke a few weeks ago, so I have been using a plastic Wal-Mart bag! I've been looking for a new one, but I like the idea of an apron!
