Simply Libby is having a give-away today Feb.29 in honor of Leap Year. All you have to do is post a picture of your ironing board on your blog and comment
There is a story behind my ironing board. When we were first married I didn't have an ironing board. We went to visit my husband's Aunt Annie. She knew we'd had a shower and asked if there was anything we didn't get that we needed. My husband said "An ironing board". She immediately said you can have mine and gave it to us. We protested and she said, "No, no, I want to do this. I have found that everytime I give something away, I get something better in return."
My husband's aunt had been in a accident and she was bent over at the waist and walked with a cane. She could not straighten up. This is a really old ironing board .. put together with wooden pegs. It was always too low for me and when I ironed a lot I sat in a high chair. I still have it. I still use it. To me it is a treasure because it belonged to my husband's aunt.
You will notice that the old cover is underneath the "not-as-old" cover. This ironing board stays sitting up behind my dining room dooor. Thank goodness I don't have to iron much any more! LOL
