It's not really midnight! Only five pm.. But I will be at it a bit longer for sure.
I'm just so proud of my nice clean dining room. Housework isn't the center of my life anymore (thank goodness!), but nobody else does it for me yet.
I'm sharing a few family secrets here. Dusting is about the last thing that gets done regularly. I keep my furniture covered where practical, and just switch out the linen on this cupboard when tall people come! Haha!
You wouldn't see it at all without the lamp light in the late afternoon. But I have just de-junked it and left the often used items on top. Looks so fresh now!
One of my fav biscuit jars. It reminds me of my granddaughter Daisy who is one of my expected visitors.
One of my rewards for a job well done is a surprise Austin rose that Mr. Cottage brought in from the garden. How thrilling!
You can see in this shot at the side of the cupboard that it is still daylight.
I was amazed to get any shots at all, so I just kept going to show you my hutch all straightened up too.
As you can plainly see, not much has changed otherwise. The only thing "fall-ified" so far is the addition of a bit of ornamental corn poking out.
The pitcher top and center is a recent addition, as is the English milk jug just below.
The old ironstone cafe cup is a new favorite mixed in with the same old things. And my dried eucalyptus lasts forever!
I have a teeny weeny cottagey kitchen with very little storage, and so this is a hard working hutch and dresser too!
Just about finished with my fall cleaning.
Feels so good!
And so nice to have a visit from you!
I hope you're having a great week!
