A little spring cleaning and some new curtains

It may look like spring inside
but outside is a whole other story.

We hardly had any snow this winter and wouldn't you know it,  it is snowing on this day before spring.

Go figure.
I've got boxes of new deck furniture  that's just waiting for me to assemble..

Since it's to cold to play outside,  I've started to get some spring cleaning done inside of the house. 
And boy does it need it!

Our pellet stove is in the dining room and as much as we love how
it saves us a ton of money on heating oil , it also puts out a lot of dust.  Layers upon layers of lovely dust. 

Oh btw,  How do you like my new curtains?

I found them for $20 a pair and for a girl who is afraid of patterned curtains...   I LOVE them!!!

New fresh curtains and a whole lot of dusting and washing and this room is just about done.
I've still got to shampoo the carpet.

The rest of the house is a work in progress.  There are some things that just have to wait ~  like washing the windows and possibly giving the kitchen a fresh coat of color.

 I did make some simple muslin curtains for the kitchen using an iron and fusible webbing.  
I don't sew!

super easy!

That's it from here. 
I want to apologize for being slow to get around the blog block.  I'm coming.

Hope that everyone is having a great weekend.
Happy Spring!!!!!


  1. Looks all sparkly and clean! Good for you.

    Your walls are not patterned, so the pattern on the curtains, works just fine.

    You certainly did a marvelous job, with the kitchen curtains. Never knew one could do any of that. I do sew, but just a tiny/simple bit. But no-sew, sounds great tooooo!
