My Apron 'Fence'

This is the view from the deck at the back of our house. One side is bordered by a fence which runs all the way to the back of our property. The other side partly bordered by our garage but the first few feet in front of the garage is paved driveway. The garage is a double that we share with our neighbour and right now his garage door isn't working so he has the door propped open.

A less than inspiring view for sure - pavement and a gaping open garage door. I tried to talk dh into building a wood fence but my request fell on deaf ears :-) So, instead, I decided to string a rope across from the house to our garage and make a 'fence' of fabric, or at least, the illusion of a fence, a place for the eye to focus rather than the bleak reality.

And it works; I like seeing the aprons fluttering in the breeze. Not everybody 'gets it' of course; a friend wondered why we had so many aprons on our line and if I changed my apron every day *smile*.

I love your aprons on the line, blowing in the wind. Gorgeous colors!

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.

Well I think the fence of aprons is genius! Very charming.

I am very jealous of your button collection - every time I try to bid on a lot of them on eBay someone outbids me at the last minute. And I can never seem to find them at antique stores. I am about ready to start snipping them off my husband's shirts and hope that he doesn't notice...
