Blog Birthday Giveaway: Prairie Pin Pouch (ENDED)

No matter where you live, one of the easiest ways to save money and to become more self-reliant is to hang your laundry out to dry. If you already do this, you know the sweet scent of sunshine that remains on your fresh, clean clothing even days after you've brought them in from the clothesline. Your clothes smell so good!

The fresh air and sunshine are good for you too, and all that bending and stretching is great exercise. (One of my very first magazine articles was about hanging laundry, published in Country Almanac. It's still one of my favorite pieces.)

Now, you'll need something to hold your clothespins while you're hanging your clothes. Something that hangs on the clothesline and is easy to reach inside to pull out a pin. Julie Pruett makes these lovely Prairie Pin Pouches from a variety of fabrics, and I love mine. It works just the way my mother's did; I'd looked for one like Mom's for a long time without success, until I found Julie's.

I reviewed the Prairie Pin Pouch several years ago; you can read my thoughts here.

Julie has several chicken fabrics available this year.

Did you miss Monday's giveaway? There's still time to enter.

In celebration of my blog's 12th birthday this week, Julie has offered to send a Prairie Pin Pouch to one of our readers. The giveaway begins May 9th at 5:00 am Central Time and will end Tuesday, May 15th at 10:00 pm Central Time. The Giveaway Tools widget will choose a random winner who will be notified by email. Winner will have 48 hours to respond; if there is no response we'll choose another winner, so be sure to watch your inbox.

If you're not the lucky winner - or if you'd like to gift a Pin Pouch or two to your best friend, your sister or your mom, you can order one at the Prairie Pin Pouch website. Julie has several fabrics available that aren't pictured on her website, so if you're looking for something different, please contact her. She said she has chickens, llamas and cactus fabrics in stock now. Cute! Each Pin Pouch comes with a bar of laundry soap and a set of wooden clothespins.
