curtain call...

You know what I forgot about this whole decorating thing?   When you start moving stuff around you notice the dust and grime a whole lot more then if you just blindly dust around what's already there...


As you can see, I finally got my little valance hung...



which meant that I really had to look at the blinds and the top of the fridge...


which meant everything came down and got a good washing...
and now...



I'm starting to love my little cottage kitchen all over again.

Blessings,
Patty

I linked up to The house in the roses, Show off your Cottage Monday.  It is such a magical site...go give her a look, I know you'll be enchanted.

That's one of the benefits of decorating ... cleaning up a bit. It's a bit of an effort, but so worth it in the end. It's so wonderful to fall in love with your cottage all over again! You h ave a sweet little grouping on top of your fridge!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Don't you just love it when everything is clean and fresh looking!! Your valance is just darling! Looks like a very cheery kitchen!

Cute display on the fridge and the plates above the valance are cute too...they look 3 dimensional. I know also how it feels to wash all your things and get them back into place...everything seems to sparkle!

Your valance looks great. I love all your cheery cottage colors!

The top of the refrigerator is a very sneaky place for dirt to hide. I'm too short to see it up there and I always wonder why my tall menfolk don't clean it for me!
