A Snippet of Spring: Week 5

With temperatures forecast to remain under 40 degrees for most of this week, Spring is definitely NOT quite in the air where I live, but it is on my mind, so over the week-end I embarked on a couple of "Spring Prep" projects.  You will note that I did not say "Spring Cleaning" and that is simply because I was not ready to go whole hog just yet since that would involve more than a vacuum cleaner!

We have a three season porch just off of our kitchen and during the winter months it serves as a "walk in cooler" and storage "facility."  We can chill wine, beer and soda to just the right temperature and somehow, miscellaneous stuff just piles up out there!  Because the room faces southeast, the most pleasant times of year to use it are Spring and Fall, so it was time to get it in order. 



Vacuuming, dusting, and the first go round with window washing were all on my "docket."  I also tried re-arranging, but due to the small size of the room and the traffic flow, no new arrangement materialized.  I am delighted to have the "stuff" removed, the assorted beverages moved to the basement fridge and the place cleaned up and ready to use.

 I love my Spring Green pillows made from scraps of fabric, cotton duck and paint.

 My CSIL made cotton duck cushion covers for these comfy retro rockers.

A bowl of Hyacinth bulbs picked up at Costco adds a "Springy" touch and the smell is lovely.


The Adirondack chairs with their fresh coat of paint, have moved to their outdoor home and await the "Summer Prep" session coming once the weather actually warms up.

Now all that's needed is a fresh coat of paint and the final go-round of window washing....maybe next week-end! What "Spring Prep" projects have happened around your home lately?  I'm still in project mode so come back tomorrow and see my finished "wall of doilies"....

BTW I am linking up today over at Centsational Girl for her "Fair Weather Forum" today, check it out, lots of great "Spring" projects to get you inspired!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me,
I would love to help!
