Reds on the Line


One of the things I look forward to each year is being able to hang laundry out on the line. Here in Idaho in our semi arid climate and intense sunshine, we can hang out laundry and it's crisp and dry in no time. It is especially nice to hang out kitchen towels and aprons. At the cottage we have lots of towels and aprons with touches of red. So for this Rednesday at Sue's It's a Very Cherry World, I am showing off my "Reds on the Line".


There is a Williams Sonoma chef's apron, and some vintage kitchen towels.


There is an apron with a cherry and strawberry border.


Vintage strawberries are charming.


Oops another pic of the same strawberries.


Just hanging out in the spring sun. They are going to smell so sweet when I fold them up and bring them inside!


So this concludes our laundry day. A simple task that is so sweet and refreshing! I hope that you enjoyed our "reds on the line". Make sure to stop by and visit everyone else on this "Rednesday"!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  1. How very "Fresh Air" smell! I use to love getting the clothes of the line when I was growing up and that wonderful fresh smell! Happy Mothers Day, Vicky

  2. That just looks so sweet and I bet they smell great! I have got to try this. I remember as a kid running in and out of the sheets my mom put out on the line to dry. They made great hiding places.

  3. Nothing is better than fresh laundry hung out to dry in the sunshine and fresh breeze! And red? All the better. Sweet pieces! I remember clothes lines and the ones that would spin round and round.

  17. Very nice and cheery linens. It's nice that you live in an area which allows you to have clothes lines.
    My first Rednesday is up too.

  22. Those dishtowels stole my heart! They are lovely...
    Red is my favorite color even though I love them all. That apron is precious. All of it is. To see things on a clotheline again is ...just plain neat!
    Love and hugs,

  35. Quite delightful!!! I used to use my clothes line a lot....then last summer my mosquito population and red ant population was so horrifyingly bad that I felt persecuted ;-). I gave up!! But perhaps I need to try again......
