I Have Lost The Battle........

Yes, Although I feel I put up a good fight, I have lost out to the Mister on this one.  I will NOT be getting my clothesline.  If you remember this post  http://thrunanaswindow.blogspot.com/2011/08/hanging-out-to-dry.html  I was drying  Santa suits on the fence out back and was hoping for a clothesline before this Spring.  Well, here we are about a month before Summer and I will not be getting my clothesline.  Don't know what Mr. P. has against a clothesline out back, but  I have lost the battle.  So what is a lady to do when she needs to grunge up some ornaments? 

Yes, use the same old fence and bring on the ornaments.  Last year Santa Suits, today it's snowman faces.  I know it's not even summer, but the fall show we do will be here now before I am ready. 

At least it wasn't hot enough today for them to melt!  (LOL)   I was just wondering if I gave you girls my Mister's cell phone number and all of you started texting him telling him why I MUST have a clothesline , he would get disgusted and just maybe I would get one. (smile).  Oh well, Angela get over it.  I think since I just HATE to cook and don't use the oven much anymore , he thinks I should get some use out of it and dry my projects in there.  Hmmmm, rather do that than cook!!!!

Now, with that said , I want to thank all of you who have emailed me and showed your concern in my absence from blogging for awhile You ladies are just the best.  The last few weeks have been rough for me.  This was the first Mother's Day without my mother and it really got to me.  More than I thought it would. Just been in the dump for awhile.  But YOU,,, all my blogging friends came through and showed your love and concern.  Friends I have made thru blogging, most of you I will never meet in person, yet you all have touched my heart so deeply.  You cared and did not hesitate to show it where as some close friends  and some family never seemed to notice.  Guess we all get busy and caught up in our own lives at times.  But, with that said I am fine, and anxious to move on.  Pity party is over. 

I think when we last talked, I was excited to be going to a huge craft show.  Well, it was huge, very nice, and you know how many prim booths there was?   NONE!!

There were all kind of neat old buildings on the grounds.  It was called  the Cotton Pickin Festival as it was where an old cotton gin and warehouses were. 

Mr. P. and I enjoyed our day, the food was delicious but I was rather disappointed. Other than our food,  I spent a total of $4.oo and bought an old rusty bed spring made into a hanger. 

Well, I am hoping all of you are enjoying a wonderful weekend doing what makes you happy.  I am off to work on a few stitchery projects.  Take care and we will visit again soon..........


  1. Oh how I sure missed you.
    I knew you were a busy creating.
    You have been in my thoughts sweet friend.
    Lovin them Snowmen.
    You can use my clothesline anytime.:)

  2. Hi Angela.. I love a clothesline, too. You have been super creative, though.. smile..
    I notice that there are a lot less prim booths up here in Canada, too.. Sad..
    Glad you are feeling better.. Sometimes, we just need to wallow, eh? smile..

    God bless dear friend..

  3. Hi Angela, I am glad you are on the up and up again. It is so sad when we think of our loved ones who have gone on. I'm sorry you were down. BUT..it sounds like you are feeling better and doing some snowman crafts! They look so cute all lines up in a row! Have a great evening!


  4. I'm so glad you are back and would be happy to text mister to lobby for the clothesline. I know the next year will be hard with all the firsts but think of the good memories and they will carry ou thru

  5. I was so happy to see that you posted. Missed you while you were gone, but sometimes we all need a break. Love your snowmen hanging from your fence...they are just too cute!! Thank goodness you have the fence to hang stuff on to dry. I don't have a fence or a clothesline...which makes it very hard to get things dried. I need to start working for my 2 shows that are this Fall also. You are so right that they will be here before we know it.

  6. Letting go is hard and sometimes takes a while. Missed hanging out with you, & yes wondered too!
    The snow guys look like they "Love" hanging out with you, and keeping time by the fence! Remember when neighbors used to talk over the back fence? It must be coming back in style. Hugss.

  7. I forgot to tell you. My friend, Ms. M, her husband finally put her up a clothesline. He went to work and told the other fellows that it only took him 7 years to get it done. One of the felllows said, "don't tell my wife, she's been waiting 8 for hers & still doesn't have one! True story, it happened in April. So there is still hope for your Mr.

  8. My husband has resisted my requests for a clothesline as well. He said it looks trashy. We don't have any neighbors who would even see it! Lol. Silly men.

  9. The craft festival looked promising,sorry no prims.Ours are turning into mostly jewelry in our area or people selling imports.Hmmm the great clotheline dilema? Well when I want hubby to do something he has put off I just go pretend I'm going to do it myself,then he gets nervous that it will not be right so he'll go finish it.LoL. I just put up a clothesline and the electric bill went down $20 for the month.Good luck!~Amy

  10. Glad you are back among us again. I used to hang clothes out all the time until I moved here.I love the smell of sheets fresh from the line. I think your snowmen hanging out on the fence looks just fine. Sorry there wasn't any prim booths at the festival. Been there, done that. Once it happens I usually don't go back the next year.
    Good luck with your winter crafting
    Country at heart

  11. Okay, what's the number??? A craftin' girl needs a clothesline! Glad you're feeling better. I know I'm dreading Father's Day, this is my first without Dad too. Too bad there were no primitives at that show - see, you'll just have to come on up to Michigan! Have a peaceful Sunday, Dawn

  12. Angela~ Glad to hear you are doing better~ Yep, that old roller coaster ride can get bumpy at times~ but with the Lord willing we make it~
    many blessing to you~

  13. So happy to hear from you. I was getting worried. I know all about the pity parties though. With my shoulder, I have been on one too. I know that was hard without your Mom. I am praying for you!!! And I vote for a clothes line but my hubby won't let me get one either! So you are not alone! MEN!!!! lol

  14. I've noticed quite a few blog buddies not posting as much Angela, and figured it was the nice weather. I'm sorry you had a hard time on Mother's Day. The first year - the year of "firsts" - is definitely hard. I'm so glad to see you have been creating. Your snow-heads are great! Can you string a temp. line for drying only? How about a folding clothes rack? Take care ~*~Lisa

  15. Good to hear from you again Angela. I'm sorry you have been sad but that is understandable. Jesus knows all about it, just tell it to him. Perhaps Mister doesn't want a clothesline because he's afraid he will hang himself on it when he mows the grass LOL. Maybe he would put up one of those Amish ones that go real high in the air.


  16. Aw Angela. You win some and lose some and looks like this is the one you lost. We have been out of town and I need to catch up on blogs. Mothers Day doesn't get much easier as the years go by. I miss mine so much.

  17. Hello Angela oh I would love to have a clothes line too! I am thinking around stretching me a line between two trees LOL

    I have a table outside that I cover with one of the cheap plastic table clothes, yes I have to turn things to dry but they dry so fast this time of the year


  18. I would love to hang out towels and sheets--and jeans! It is such a nice smell. But hankies, panties and socks? Rather do them in the dryer!
    I haven't posted much---busy with stitching but feeling blue somedays, too. It'll get better, I know! You are in my prayers.

  19. I think you should rig up your own clothesline. Tie an ugly rope to your house and string it to your fence and hang your things up on it. Maybe he will see that what you have in mind is uglier than a real clothes line and then he will be happy to have one:) Good luck. Sorry no prim booths. That's how a craft show would be for me too. -Steph-

  20. I had a clothesline at my other house...loved it..but alas would not look good here by the water...I think my neighbors would like I was crazy. Loved your snowmen hanging on the fence and mde me laugh when you said at least they did not melt. Take care, Janice

  21. Ok....so what's the mister's number? Seriously....I can't believe you (and so many of the others who have commented)can live without a clothesline!! We don't have great deal of "wonderful" weather here in Nod, and I don't use it for many of my clothes, but I cannot imagine NOT sleeping in line-dried sheets in the spring/summer/fall. YIKES! The clothesline went in before our furniture!! You truly have my utmost sympathy...... Hugs ~ Robin
