Spring Cleaning

Spring has come early to California, and with that, comes Spring Cleaning. Aside from cleaning up the clutter all over the place, and filling bags with stuff to sell at the garage sale I'm going to have at the end of this month, I also got a chance to polish some of my silver.


The patina of the tarnish is pretty, but I just love the gleam of freshly polished silver.


I left my other silver teapot as-is, tarnish and all.

Along with the silver polishing, I also did a little rearranging in the living room.  I rearrange furniture and/or accessories constantly, so my house is rarely the same from one week to the next.  I didn't do anything big this time; I just reoriented the sofa & tables so now they are diagonal to the fireplace. Also re-arranged the china collection, and moved the stacked suitcases to serve as an endtable next to my living room chair.

An early spring also means that I need to go out every day to weed the areas where my garden will eventually be planted. I've been ignoring the weeds for the past couple of months, so I've got my work cut out for me. 

Spring is just around the corner.  Are you ready?

  1. Oh just look at your beautiful lovely girlie china and tea things! That room just beckons one to "come, have tea with me!"

    You have a lovely room there, and you did a fabulous job shining up your silver. It isn't easy- sometimes really takes the elbow grease and ENERGY!
