look at this cool bag my Mom made me...
to keep my clothes pens in....

it works great ....you just slide it along with you...
she made it from a scrap of material she had...
a hook off of an old shower curtain...
and a clothes hanger...
see what can be made from things you have on hand...
and a little imagination...
tomorrow is Earth day....
a celebration of our Earth...
now that is a day worth celebrating...




little things make a big difference....
tomorrow I'm doing a post on a few things I've been doing...
to make a difference...
I'm not an extremist...
but I do feel like we can all do our part...
Happy Saturday....
have you smiled today?

I love the clothes pin bag. I remember similiar ones from the "old days" made of ticking...it seems like there was one hanging from every clothesline.

Precious!!! And a bright spot, too.

Yes, we all can do more than we usually do. What we need is some inspiration, now and then.

THANK YOU for giving us, this needed inspiration.

It's just so *easy,* to keep going along in old ruts. -sigh-

Happy Earth Day!!!

we'd make our clothes pin keeper out of an old vinegar or bleach jug. cut a hole in the upper front for hands and clothes pins. cut an inch notch/hole out of the back handle so it could hang on the line. :)

Your clothes pin bag made me smile! Your mom can do anything!! I am going to be in town this week and hope I can talk her into going to the movies with me!

What a great bag. I can just imagine the smell of laundry that has dried on a clothline!

Michelle said...

I have one that is similar. Such a great gadget!

Love this and had one that my mother had... not sure where it is now, but remember how hand it was. Looks like your mom and my mom had the same "recipe" for clothes pin hangers. LOL
