Tis the season for cleaning!!

We are home at the farm house for a few days while the shearers come in and shear our sheep. This takes about 3 days for our ewes to be done so I have decided that the weather is just perfect for a bit of spring cleaning (I know it’s full summer here but at the moment we are having beautiful spring weather). This always seems to happen when the Christmas decorations are packed away. I didn’t have too many to pack up at the farm house because most of ours were at the beach house this year but the house looked like a clean slate just waiting to be rearranged.

I started with a nearly empty dresser and I felt it really needed some nice earthy bits and pieces so as usual I looked around and put together a few pieces from everywhere!


Things look a little sad here…my gorgeous big white pitchers went to the beach house for Christmas and will probably stay there now.








I really like this look for a change – DNo 2 visited and commented how much she liked it – I don’t think my daughters like my pink things much!!

It's chilly here, so a bit of spring/summer is nice to see. Everything looks good. You must have a lot of sheep!♥♫

I like the creamy whites and natural browns - 2 tone decor always looks fresh.
