Spring Cleaning!

As promised, here are a ton of pictures of my beautifully cleaned house. You can bet I took a few in each room...I know it won't stay like this long after the girls come home. I'm so proud. We are finishing up our bathroom (the rest is Zach's part), and I didn't want to take a picture of our room/bathroom until it is completely done. Also, I am making Easter decorations for my kitchen and dining room. When I have finished, there will be pictures.

This may be a total bore to many of you, but I have to show off my proud work. I know that some moms are able to keep their homes neat and tidy all the time. I, however, am not one of those. I have an extremely hard time balancing playing with the girls, sewing for them and my small business, and keeping up with my house. This summer I will be back in school full time and can only imagine then! But anyway, I know that my mother and grandmother will be EXTRA happy to see these lovely pictures of my home. Then I have a couple of decorations I made last night!

First up- My sewing room and the bathroom attached to it.
I took these depression glass wine goblets and filled them with bits of old lace trims left from my grandmother. Isn't that a cute idea? Also, I am going to sew some green ruffles onto those pink hand towels, just haven't gotten around to it yet...can you imagine that?

Now look at the playroom, see ALL of those cabinets? Imagine them completely organized and labeled, because they are...I just didn't open them all to take pictures.
Here is my living room
That last picture is just one of our new drapes...they won't stay pulled back all the time. I do like them that way, though.

Here is the "sunken in area" that I was speaking of. We didn't know what to do with it when we moved in, so we ended up putting Faith's desk and drawers there, and that is where she creates her masterpieces. See a couple of them framed on her desk?
Here is Faith's room. I hand painted that rainbow over her bed. That is something that I am just completely pleased with. She wanted a big mural so badly, and the woman that we had scheduled to paint it got in an awful accident the week she was going to come over. I took matters into my own hands, and I think it came out pretty great for my first time!
Here are a couple of Lily's sweet little room.


Now for the two projects I did last night. This first "Love" on is actually for on the wall in our bedroom, but will stay here until we hang it! These were some old frames that we already had, and I just spray painted them black.

You know those metal stars that everyone has hanging in or outside their house...well I got one. I saw one Tatertots and Jello that she had used Modge Podge on. Isn't this the BEST idea ever? Yes, it is.

Last night, I traced out the ENTIRE Feliz dress pattern in Faith's size and the Sienna dress pattern. That is what is on the menu today. I want to get her Easter dress done, a t shirt dress done, and get her a new apron made. Today is "Faith" day! Tomorrow I plan on working on little Lily.

I'm sorry if this post has typos, I want to put new pictures on the other blog...and really don't have time to go back and proofread right now.

  1. I Know!!! I hope it's still that clean when you come over tonight! I've been sewing, and well...that gets my house as messy as Faith n Lily do.
