my weekends of laundry

December 1, 2012

My name is Deb Taylor.
I have Laundry Lust.

I seriously am a little bit addicted to the process of doing laundry.
But not just the ordinary labor of getting the dirty to become clean.

Maybe it is the instant gratification of a job well done that gets me high.
I delight in the satisfaction of actually completing a project that I start.

I require the old fashion line strung between two trees.
And buckets of wooden pins. (Some parts of the world call them pegs)

And then of course there is a camera involved along with tripod and remote.
Capturing my two obsessions, laundry and self portraiture all in one moment!

As a Bed and Breakfast owner, my weekend guests always found a familiar comfort
knowing their linens had ~”danced in the wind and kissed by sunshine”~

and oh how we love a crunchy, thirsty towel that has been line dried.

You know who you are.
Maybe you have the same addiction as I do?

Summer hanging on
Pillows fluff before winter

    I love how you make washing look & sound amazing Deb. Two wooden ‘pegs’ (yes I’m one of those Australians – we call them that) never looked so enticing! Sounds like you have a lovely place. Love your photography, love that your a vegetarian and love your creative words!!

    I am a big fan of line-dried sheets myself. Though we dont have a washing line in our wee London back yard, I always take our drying rack out in the summer. I am looking forward to the days when we are back in New Zealand and I have a clothesline strung up in my back yard.

    This post has me filled with longing.

    This is gorgeous Deb. I love laundry too but I hate doing it in my tiny flat with no where to dry it! I long for the day when I can dry clothes outside again. I swear sheets and clothes smell sweeter when they’ve been dried by the win and the sun.
