perfect. i wish i had a backyard clothesline like that! I love the fresh smell of laundry after it has been outside all day. I am not sure my neighbors would appreciate it if I put one in my front yard.

Oh my goodness! You are such a Martha Stewart it makes me jealous!! Eric is super blessed to have you
