It's really difficult to get good indoor photos when the days are gray and rainy.
But, today the weather was beautiful and spring-like!
It gave me a chance to get a few photos and to get in a lovely run outdoors.
There are two times each year that I like to get some deep cleaning done, spring, and in the fall before the holidays.
Over the weekend I did one of the deep cleaning chores I dread.
hate, strongly dislike, cleaning the blinds.
But it's done now, (YaY!), and along with that chore came cleaning the windows and the window tracts, and washing the curtains.
I have the same white cotton curtains, (made by Woolrich and purchased at Target), in the living room, dining room and our bedroom.
I wash them in cold water and do not dry them in the dryer, as the instructions say.
They are air dried by the next morning and are ready to iron.
I love the simplicity of the white cotton with my cottage-y decor style, the soft gray walls and the white trim.
I also love that with a quick washing and a little ironing with a steam iron, they look as good as new.
With my least favorite chore done, I'm getting excited for the holidays.
All of our children and grandchildren will be home!
