Hung out to dry...

As winter nights approach, I've pulled out the down comforter, flannel sheets and mattress heating pad.  Nothing like a nice toasty bed on a cold winter's day!

I wanted to freshen them up after being stored away for months to I hung them out in the sun and brisk breeze... the fresh smell took me back to my childhood and the wringer washer, rinse tub and clotheslines. The towels and jeans would be a little stiff, but OHhhhh the fragrance of sunshine and fresh air!  No one has been able to reproduce THAT fragrance.
