If you have a clothesline, listen up! If not, then invest in one!!! Did you know that line drying your clothes not only saves quite a bit of energy costs in your utility bill, but it also prolongs the life of the fabrics in your clothing and linens? AND sunshine is a wonderful, natural whitener and brightener! To keep clothes soft when line drying, simply add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle... the scent dissipates in the air, and your laundry is naturally brightened and disinfected as well as softer!

It's getting festive around here! Starting on Monday, I'm going to post a mini-tour of our holiday home. You'll see lots of influences from other bloggers, but also perhaps some original decorating we do here in the Roman home! Time to get in the spirit, everyone!
