Let Talk Ironing

I do believe that ironing is a lost domestic art.  I started when I was the young age of 10 years. My mom believed in ironing and seemed to only buy 100% cotton clothing. I started out ironing pillow cases, pillow cases that had hand embroidery, or lace. I had a spray bottle of water and and can of spray starch. I would watch TV as I ironed and would fold each pillow case in a neat square when finished. I took pride in the work. 
Today I iron all my 100% cotton, linen blouses. I send my husbands white shirts to be laundered and ironed.
 I do find some kind of fulfillment in doing this task...Go Figure!

PS- This is a great way to dry those curlers you just set!
PSS-Take note- woman is ironing left handed..
