what lies beneath


I spent most of Monday and Tuesday doing a thorough cleaning around here...yes, spring cleaning! Always dreaded but much celebrated afterwards. If only you could see how clean my house is - but then I'd have to show you a "before" picture and that's just out of the question.

Last item on the task list is taking down all my window valances and this cord cover, and getting them cleaned and pressed. The cord cover's been in place now for almost 4 years, never been touched. Or vaccumed. You think it's about time for a cleaning? This is just the kind of incidental thing that starts to bother me when I wake up in the middle of the night. But with my valances and cover cleaned, what can possibly keep me awake now?

I know what you feel like. I have been doing lots of Spring (and Closet)Cleaning myself the past week. Why is you have to make such a mess in order to clean up?

I love the lamp and cord cover. Is there a picture somewhere, of more of it? 'It'. And what it is hanging over, and etc.? :-)

I would have done the lazy thing and just used duck tape to get the dust off. LOL

It feels so good to get the spring cleaning done. And how much better will it be when the windows can be open and the fresh air can come in!!

hi tommiea...the lamp is actually one that hangs over our dining table. Yes, I have got girlie taste!

Smilnsigh...I think in one of my room shots you can see the top of the lamp. The ribbon goes up and over a hook. Should be easy enough to take down...
