Something my friends thought they'd NEVER see me do!

LOL! Yep, that's me, with a mouth full of clothespins, and with some pinned to the front of my shirt just like my mama and grandma taught me. I told you I have the longest clothesline in the State of Texas. I'll have to measure that sucker soon to prove it. Anyhow, those gorgeous barkcloth curtains I'm hanging on the line came from the living and dining rooms of the house. I washed them four times with my natural detergent, put them through the dryer three times, and still, they smelled of fake plug-in chemical fragrances. UGH.

I'm determined to use them in my new writer's nook, so I needed to destinkify them. (That's my new word, and I'll be using it often here.)

Four hours in the hot blazing sun did the trick! Nice, fresh smelling curtains made from vintage 1950's barkcloth. Score!

Happy trails,

  1. Bobbi this is such a charming blog for a charming old house! Didn't realize you'd already moved in. Looks like you're having a great time.

  2. Hey Theresa! We haven't officially totally moved in yet, but have been spending most of our time there cleaning, drawing floor plans, deciding what to move around and where. We still have to get the AC in, which is hopefully NEXT! LOL


Thank you for commenting on my blog! I love visitors, and readers, and appreciate the time you spend there. Hope it's enjoyable and fun for you. bobbi c.
