Vintage Clothespins: Vogue!



I couldn't help myself with that "Vogue!" title.

What else are you going to do when you're
enamored with a little collection
of beautifully aged and patinaed
vintage clothespins?

You do a photo shoot of course!

And this little chorus line
struck many a pose...






Which is very fitting, because...
V is for Vintage.
V is for Vogue.
They're kinda shaped like a V.


This little collection has me feeling
nostalgic for days of
sheets flapping on the clothesline,
mom in her curlers
{sorry for telling on you Mom}
having coffee with the neighbor ladies,
while I ran barefoot back and forth 
from swing set to porch.







Funny what a simple little clothespin can evoke.

I have two jars full of old clothes pins, so I'm gonna have to pop over and check out the projects to see what I can see.

I love old clothespins! I have some too, including some old springy type ones that I made into a wall tree over Christmas. Great inspiration to do some more "pin" projects!

I can hear my granny yelling, "Do not run through my clean sheets!" She used to make us dolls with these pins.

I too love old clothes pins. However, I use mine to hang clothes with. Here in Florida, I hardly ever put any clothes in the dryer - only towels. There is nothing like the smell of sheets when they have been hanging on the clothesline.
Have a great week,
