I love the sun with the sticks for rays, the woman's pinny and red polka dot skirt, I love the wicker laundry basket, but best of all I love that she's hanging out rectangular laundry. Oh this book must surely have been designed and written for me. If you click on this link, you can read a few pages and check out what sort of laundry liner you are; a willy-nilly clothes hanger, an uncomplicated hanger, or are you, like the photographer for this book, someone who, "remembers everything his mother told him but hangs a renegade clothesline."

Clever Clogs Jan And A Pair Of Laundry Books
Very early on Sunday morning, sitting at my pc opening emails, and up pops a little email of scant words:
"Hi. I found a book about clotheslines and posted it on my blog today! You are one of the few people who might be interested!"
Hmm, I thought, so over to Jan's blog and Oh My Goodness, her few words belied a Grand Canyon of delight. Books about laundry, and even better, not just doing the laundry, but about arranging your laundry room. Oh how my little heart leapt for joy.
This book is just as gorgeous, and if you click on this link, you can scroll through a few pages of the book. Who in their right minds keeps clothes pegs, (albeit gorgeous wooden ones that are utterly impractical and useless in conditions any greater than 2 on the Beaufort Scale), in a large glass screw top jar? Who knows; who cares, but I'm off to Nottingham this morning to buy some wooden pegs to keep as a decorative item in my laundry room. You see Jan, all this from your 25-word email.
