Vintage Clothespin Apron


It's Thursdsay ~ time for another Vintage Thingie! Here is my vintage clothespin apron. It's great to wear when I am out back hanging laundry on the line. It has one large pocket all the way across the apron so that I can stash lots of clothespins inside. And ...



It's cute too, which goes a long way with me! I laundered some of my vintage linens today. Here they are hanging outside in the hot late afternoon Idaho sun. At 2700 feet elevation, the sun is really intense. These linens will be completely dry in less than 1 hour!! I better not spend too much time out here.



Stop by and visit Suzanne, The Colorado Lady, for Vintage Thingie Thursday. I hope the weather is a bit cooler where she lives. It's supposed to be 102 here tomorrow!

No walkies tomorrow Bentley. We will be taking it easy in the shade!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  6. Aaaaah, that's adorable. I needed one of those this week when we unearthed a stash of old colored clothespins. We ended up giving them to the thrift store, sweetpea. If I had that apron I would have hung it and put them in the pocket. Darling...

  11. We used one of those cloths pin aprons for years. However, it did not look as nice as yours. I miss not having the old fashion cloths lines.

    Bentley looks a lot like one of our son's Yorkies.

  16. I love your clothespin apron. I collect vintage aprons myself. I don't actually wear them, but I do display them in my kitchen. I also make vintage inspired aprons. I have several designed just like your clothespin apron, but haven't listed them on Etsy yet.

  18. So very pretty! Drying them outside not only makes them smell wonderful but really makes the white bright.
