    Yes, I do also. It has a sixties vibe! It’s a sad reminder that ironing has become a lost art in this country.

    • Yes! I see that vibe, too. And as for the ironing, I definitely represent that decline in my own life. Years ago I ironed my clothes like every morning before work (!!!), but now I never do. I still have my iron, though. Ready for action should I buy a linen outfit! (Although I have to say, ironing linen always struck me as kind of a lost cause since you were a wrinkled mess anyway the moment you sat down.)
