4th of July weekend and vintage laundry


I'm in Strathmere for the 4th of July weekend. But on Thursday I made a large purchase of vintage stock, with many things that need to be handwashed. So along with my own clothing and food, I packed a bag of laundry to bring with me for the weekend, which included several 1940-50s day dresses and Victorian/Edwardian whites.


Whites soaking in some Biz and a dash of bleach.
And below are the whites after hanging out to dry in the seashore sunshine. These are children's dresses.



Next I washed the day dresses and hung those out to dry too.



Then I took my morning walk on the beach. I saw this gal heading out to sea (I'm assuming that it was a gal because she was nicely accessorised)


And I added a few selections to my Pretty Stones Collection.
This afternoon I'll be doing some more soaking and hanging while I also do aome sunbathing.

This post reminds me of the guys at the Marina across the street from me. The one guy was out and about one day and a lady offered him a vintage washing machine......it works!! She did not want it anymore. I have to take a picture of it and post it. They use it all the time! It is so cool!
