Upside Down Spring
Do you turn your house upside down in the spring? Not literally, of course, but in a spring cleaning kind of way? I used to enjoy reading old-fashioned books where spring cleaning was done and the author described how they polished and dusted the parlor. Ma Ingalls, Laura, and Mary were such hard workers! Nowadays when we think of spring cleaning, it often means not only cleaning, but reorganizing or changing our home displays and decor. Winter things are put away, and lighter colors and spring themed items are set out to enjoy. Sometimes a window shopping trip to a favorite store helps to inspire and motivate us in this direction. It's fun to see how displays are set up and to glean ideas for reusing and displaying the things we already have. Occasionally a new item or two is all that's needed to create an entirely new look in a cozy corner or on a display table. If you click on this picture, it will enlarge and maybe you can glean some new ideas for displays in your home. Enjoy!
