Laundry and Venice


As many of you know...we lived almost 7 years of our military life in N. Italy. We lived in the Friuli Region..about 1 hour from Venice, by train.

We loved going there. For some reason....I just loved the old buildings...and geranium flower boxes.....and laundry stretched across out of the windows.

So today, I am so behind on laundry and as quaint as it looks ...

I am thankful for my servant girls( Emilie Barnes, calls our appliances this,in her books and seminars).....My WASHER and Dryer.

I love clotheslines but can't help but think what happens if the clothes fall in the water?

I love that picture. We never went to Italy, but lived in Germany for the first two years of our marriage.

I love the idea of seeing Venice. Read so man books that take place in Venice. From your picture I shudder at what happens if the washing is not pegged firmly!

Great picture! I spent some time in Venice, too, and this brings back lots of good memories. Thanks for giving me the chance to relive a few of them.
