'Til They're Clean And Sparkly

The weather has warmed, reaching a balmy 71 degrees today.
The windows were flung open, and for the first time in months it felt like Winter was now just a distant memory.
 
I accomplished a little Spring cleaning this afternoon, it's amazing how much dust accumulates when fireplaces are lit, and doors shut tight.

I love your collections Jo. The Toby Jug caught my eye. My mother had a whole collection of them at one time. I've thought of starting my own. Have a great week, lovely that you've started off with such a warm day. Ours was up to 60 but tomorrow they say 69. Can't wait :)

Hello Jo! It's good to see that you're enjoying some spring like weather as well. Over here in Kansas we're up to 76 today but I'm sure we still have some cold temperatures ahead of us for a while. I think spring likes to tease us here on the prairies ;) Enjoy your spring cleaning and your beautiful day. Maura :)

Oh, how fun! Everything looks lovely! We only hit 50 degrees, but that was warm for Ohio in March. I was tempted to open the doors for a quick air-out myself but thought I better wait a few more weeks. :)

We have been in the mid-50s, which is wonderful, especially when there are sun breaks to go along with the mild temperatures. I love your pretty pictures! :-)

We are headed to Arizona at the end of the month……… if we can’t get warm dry weather here in Oregon then off we go.

It's a beautiful 63 degrees here today in Philly. I'm stuck indoors at work though :( Tomorrow it's only getting up to 28 and snow. What's a girl to do?

Hope you are having good weather...we were, but are to have snow again this evening into tomorrow. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
