Rosie's Laundry

My next door neighbor, Rosie, is from Italy. She came to America in 1950 to marry. Her garden (which I'll feature when it is in full bloom) is a dazzling array of color and lush, beautiful blooms.

But she is spring cleaning now, and had her laundry on the line. I couldn't resist, and while her husband Frank probably thought I was certifiable when I asked if I could take pictures of Rosie's laundry, I forged ahead!









My laundry is too ugly to hang up on the line...

OMG!! What gorgeous things your neighbor has! Laundry hanging out on the line is a big no-no where I live! But I do love the smell of sheets when they've been hung on the line. I miss that. I still sneak a few hand washables out once in awhile....so far I haven't been caught!

Lovely lacy laundry. Like my alliteration?

Beautiful laundry! I grew up with laundry hanging on the line but in my current neighborhood I wouldn't do it as we are right across from the park.

Oh how pretty. I was just commenting on another blog on how beautiful clotheslines are and how I miss having one. That lace is so pretty.

My neighbor's yard never looks like that! How pretty, I'd have been out photographing it too. Next door to me is just an old guy who smokes on the porch in his boxers. I don't think I'll be taking pictures of him.

thought I was leaving after enjoying another Paris post, when the word ROSIE caught my attention in your sidebar...here I am enjoying the lovely European lace curtains hanging on the line. I have some of these in our home,,,,have had for so many years, just never tire of them.
Time for dinner...tootles for now!
So glad I wandered one last time before leaving your lovely blog :)
