As you probably know by now, I love to hang laundry on the clothesline, and so I bought myself a gift: a new clothespin bag. I stumbled upon this great creator on Flickr, where I saw some pictures of her handmade clothespin bags. I sent her a note and asked if she sold them or patterns to make them: as it turns out, she's also an Etsy seller! I decided that it was time to retire my old, worn out bag.
The new one arrived today, and was so nicely packaged I felt like a rock star. It makes such a difference to me when sellers treat me like a valued person! Anyhow, Mary Kay has a really nice shop on Etsy called Geneva Designs, which you can check out here. All of her clothespin bags are fabulous: it was tough to choose between them, but I really liked the retro feel of this one, and I'm a sucker for striped binding and polka dots, so this one won out. I love the fact that I can put my portable phone (or cell phone) in one of the pockets. I'm often outside in the garden or hanging clothes up while Bronwyn is in school, and I need to be available in case the school needs me.
Anyhow, it feels nice to talk about another artist for a change. I was starting to bore myself!
Happy summer, friends!
