Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Today I'll introduce you to one of my favourite pieces of equipment, commonly called a clothes airer, I use it for drying things small enough to fit when the weather outside means I can't hang things on the backyard line. Which is most of the time because it's not nice out there where the sun rarely shines longer than an hour before being shadowed by the buildings.
here she is, all folded up to fit nicely behind any door. You'll notice she has wheels for convenient moving. See the little round table in the background? We'll get to that later.
she opens out by pulling the sides apart
and locking those crossbars in place
the top section is lifted from where it hung down inside the side and locked into place, I had to white out some family photos there.
the top wings fold out,
as do two sets of side wings. How's that for lots of hanging space? It isn't very wide, I can't hang bedsheets on it, they have to go out on to the sunless washing line. But it takes care of all the small stuff.
here is Lola doing a bit of photo-bombing
I found this top quality tea towel at a thrift shop for only $4, it is so closely woven it should last forever and I love the kitty border, which looks grey here but is actually a dark green.
at the same thrift shop I also found this crocheted cot blanket which I plan to use as a knee rug on frosty mornings, or perhaps throw it around my shoulders
the border is so colourful too.
and here is that little carved wood side table, found in the same thrift shop, I'm so glad I went in there that day. Usually I just put stuff in the collection bin out front.
