Spring Cleaning and Organizing

*This post contains affiliate links

Mr. DIY  is working on a wood project to give to our granddaughter and I'll share it soon. 

In the meantime...

Temps are warming up around the Carolinas, which means one thing:

It's time for a little Spring cleaning, organizing and time to freshen things up. 

I'll be starting in my kitchen and bathrooms, cleaning out cabinets and drawers.

Start with the basics: 

CLEANING SUPPLIES

I use all of these, with the exception of the Pink Stuff Magic Stuff Cleaner. 

It's a #1 Best Seller in All Purpose Cleaners on Amazon, so I'm going to have to try it.

If you've tried it, let me know what you think in the comments below.

A SIMPLE TIP
 I cut Magic Erasers in half and place in cabinet in EVERY sink in the house in a Command Caddy.
I've done this at our home and at our Mountain House. Keeping them handy makes it so simple to take a few seconds to keep sinks clean.

Next on my list after cleaning and clearing out cabinets

Replace drawer liner with Contact Grip Liner.  

This is still on my to do list. The Grip liner will keep things in the drawer (including the liner) from shifting.

FAVORITE "CHEAT"

For all the rooms that I still need to do some Spring Cleaning in, I'll be spraying my favorite Honeysuckle Room Spray by Meyers. Have you tried it?

Love. Love. Love!

HONORABLE MENTION:

Here's a miscellaneous tip:

Order a few mildew resistant shower liners and keep them on hand for when you need to replace.

All Things Valentine's Day

*This post contains affiliate links 



It's time to share Valentine's Day posts from the past several years.

Definitely time to get all the posts together since then, in one place. Click on the captions below each pic and it will take you to the original post.


Let's start with a Valentine's Day tablescape from 2015. Our breakfast room in our last house was my favorite space to decorate for a holiday or season.  

Setting a festive table is a simple and easy thing to do for a holiday. 

You have to eat, right? 

Why not make it pretty!

Glitter Valentine's Hearts were an easy Valentine's Day craft for 2016.

I  shared our Valentine's Day tablescape in 2017. Oh, how I love to get out those Ruby Red glasses for Valentine's Day (and Christmas and maybe 4th of July).

In 2018 - a year I was not feeling well at all - I was still able to summoned enough energy to make this sweet Vintage Valentine Heart using some a vintage doilies and hand tatted lace that my grandmother made when she was a teenager back at the turn of the last century. I soldiered on with a muddled head and I'm glad I did.

In 2019 I shared a Valentine Vignette in our Foyer.  This cottage dresser in the Foyer at our current house is a great space to decorate for any season or holiday.

I made a LOVE Banner last Valentine's Day with some leftover supplies from our granddaughter's first birthday. The pale pink roses Mr. DIY gave me were perfect in the vignette.
