Spring cleaning

I have been trying to do my spring cleaning...well, I've done one room and I'm on a mission to do a room each week. Sounds good in theory, doesn't it?? This week I cleaned out a guestroom (or DNo2's old bedroom). I still have the wardrobes to go through as they are filled with my summer clothes. I really need to sift through them and transfer the ones I want into my wardrobe and send the rest to charity. I thought I would share some photos of this room with you.

Once again we have pink walls - probably more my choice than my daughter's!! 

This pretty floral quilt sometimes lives on my bed - I love to change things around a bit so I can have a different look without spending any money.

I love this piece of iron work above the bed - it is actually garden art from my sister's nursery but I thought it was perfect above the bed.

The afternoon sun is just peeping through the trees.

A few little pretties on the bedside table. 

I have pretty plates on the walls in many of the rooms of my house - I just love them even if they are looking a bit shabby. (Whoops, looks like my fingers are in this photo! lol)

Lovely bath oils and lotions for guests to enjoy.

More candles on the dresser.

This poor old patchwork ted looks a bit lonely now - he had a smaller brother but SNo 1's dog managed to get inside when I wasn't home oneday and totally wrecked the small bear. 

Have a lovely week,   Suzy

Looks like a very inviting room! Funny when you say "spring" cleaning because here in the US we are "fall" cleaning, ha! Have a great spring. I am your newest follower, btw!
