...with the more pleasant weather these past few days,
I have been starting on my Spring Cleaning ~
something about the winds blowing away the last remnants of Winter
makes me want to polish, scrub & shine everything in this old farmhouse!
along with throw rugs and curtains...
clearing out every last particle of soot from our woodstove.
the windows now sparkle,thanks to a mixture of vinegar, newspaper and elbow grease ~
and the wood floors have been waxed to a mellow glow.
fresh flowers have been placed in old ironstone and set upon the mantle
as a reminder of what is yet to come....
even the front porches have been swept free of leaves and wood chips
from our never-ending woodpiles ~
it's also a great time to declutter my somewhat organized sweing room...
I'll keep what I really, really (think) i need,
and donate or give away...
time to take stock of what wools,
threads & fabrics are needed for more springtime creating!
So now I'm off to do just that...
Hoping your day is a sunny & creative one~
