On the line...

{ some ephemera from my collection. Please play nice and use for just your own personal efforts. Not to sell.}

Well the sun is going to be shining after 3 days of rain....so out on the line will go loads and loads of washing at my place today! I like to line dry my laundry when I can, but now it will be a money saver on the electric bill for the clothes dryer too. Saving money is always good. Especially after my shock of the repair man's news yesterday for the refrigerator/freezer. A few dollars short of $300! Yep! It seems these new appliances have computers in them. Darn that computer technology!! We recently had a power surge in the neighborhood and it fried the computer board that controls the temperature and shut off cycling. Who knew? A computer inside my appliance!? I am always the last one in on this stuff! After talking to my neighbors I found they also had things (all different items) that were fried in the surge too.

So we will now have a surge protector on our appliances. The repair man showed me the bad part. Yikes! Burned up! He said he is always repairing brand new appliances...hardly ever old ones-the old ones run and run with stamina-NO computers!!

So today I have just two MORE WORDS for you...

SURGE PROTECTOR!

Who knew? I guess we should have a surge protector on ours too! I am loving your shop and the "Better than Vintage" photos! Awesome idea sweetie! Love, Jamie
