Vintage Clothspin Bag

Last time I visited Gary Neltner at the Antiques Warehouse I was telling him that we have been hanging our laundry out to dry instead of using our dryer.  He responded that he had something I might like and voila!...look what he pulled out for me! 

Of course I loved it with it's awesome vintage illustration and typeface.  If you can't read it, it says, "The Champion, Stay Open, Clothespin Bag".  It reminded me of my childhood because my  mom always had a clothespin bag like this.  I don't know if it was a "Champion" but it had the same general bag-on-wire-frame appeal to it. 

Not only has it come in very handy when hanging out the laundry, but the color scheme fit perfectly into this week's theme.  Nothing says summertime like a vintage red, white and blue clothespin bag!
