Oh, How I Love Spring!



I love this time of year, when the days start getting warmer.....and longer,
and the grey skies give way to white, fluffy clouds and sunshine.

The trees are budding, and there are little sprouts of green
popping up in every garden, with the promise of new life.




There is something about these longer, brighter days that always compels
me to clean the house, doing all the jobs I don't get to on a regular basis.

Maybe it's that fresh, new feeling the house takes on
when everything is shiny and clean.



When I started my cleaning a few days ago, I went for my tea cups.
Their pretty colors, and flowers always feel so spring-like to me.




Today, I'm cleaning tile grout in the kitchen. Not as exciting as tea cups,
but necessary just the same, and I'll love it when it's finished.


So.....what fun spring thing are you doing today?





I'm linking up to Terri and Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday.
Check out all the pretty tea cups.

I feel the same way, Debi - spring makes me want to clean and I've been doing quite a bit of it. Your teacups are beautiful.

Oh Debi, you spoil us with all this china eye candy! Each of your cups is wonderful. I too love to clean in the springtime, re organize and freshen every thing up! Washing china is a favorite task. Everything in the china cabinet looks so good when I am done.
You could link up to Tea Cup Tuesday, the ladies would love to see your gorgeous tea things!
Hugs,
Terri

Your tea cup collection is so elegantly charming. I feel as if I should be wearing a lace dress and an Easter bonnet. Beautiful spring post! Thanks for sharing, Connie:)

Love all your springy teacups and LOVE the bunny and tulip piece. Let's see, what am I doing. I've been trimming branches outside, got my chainsaw fixed and have cut down some dead stuff. (Woman with Power Tool). Cleaned out outdoor flower pots and put new screen in the door (see blog) that my G. Shepherd dog walked through. Starting inside soon . . .
