Putting the Spring into Spring Cleaning!
Cleaning. Yuk. So, this is how I try to make it a bit more bearable with a few pretty things. First things first - a pretty piny..... I always have the radio on, preferably with some old jazz or classical - and I HEART my Roberts Radio! Welcome to my Washroom. Mopping and brushing don't you just love it. Pretty peg bag - but I use it for all my plastic bags. I'm not sure what these are called, but I know they are great for collecting all my cake crumbs! No, I don't use a washboard - it's a notice board. In my head if I actually pretend I am some sort of house keeper from a past era, it doesn't make me feel so depressed. It's like, if I can make game of it all, it's not really my life. Does that make sense? I do not Heart ironing. It's great putting all that nasty packaging away in here. Out of sight out of mind. These gingham Laundry bags are everywhere and for some reason they are always full??? Go figure??? Some old fashioned Lavender Wax Polish - empty now though :( A proper old shoe shine box.... And this cute little 1950's book - which is full of hilarious ways in which to keep your home spit and span for your darling husband (tee hee) And I have to say than rather emulating the top image - I rather look like this at the end of a cleaning sesh - how about you?
