Wash done by Hand …

Hey everyone ~ it is soo great to have my bestie Dena with me helping with this blog…been a long time since we both did a dual post but we came up with a new series called “Housewives” that will be something fun and maybe give you some idea’s for pics or blogs or just enjoy reading…ever think back to time before all those fancy machines that made housework not a chore ~ dating myself I do remember visiting my Mom’s parents in the mountains of North Carolina where their washing machine was a wringer type cuz this was all they could afford ~ if I remember correctly my parents did gift them new ones but sat in boxes and never used ~ some just were comfortable using what they knew…can you imagine living in a cabin having to drag your laundry to the nearby pond or probably a lake by a waterfall ~ first lugging a basket of heavy duty clothes, a washboard and a bar of lard soap ~ if you were lucky a clothes line was close by otherwise you had to lug all those clothes back to the cabin to string them up there ~ exhausting huh ~ we thought so as you can see by the pic trying to recreate days gone by ~ with some xceptions like these huge rollers ~ might of not been possible ~ our hair could of been wrapped up in some bandanna instead…this was a fun project and most everything prop wise we found on Marketplace ~ check credits and I am trying to do a lot better in making sure to give all credits…

Wash Day 

See we are completely exhausted I hope hubby does appreciate how we slaved over these old fashioned wash boards and tubs…even did sheets and towels…next project might be ironing YUCK ~ does anyone iron in RL anymore….even as a teen I would detest buying clothes that needed to be ironed ~ now back to SL as everything looks pristine brand new or whatever you want ~ Dena and I both subscribed to Powder Pack and I treated myself to some other subscriptions that we will be showing off tomorrow for you ~ till then be good to yourself ~ peace out ♥
