POST HOLIDAY Cleaning
I always enjoy the holidays- but I like even more the chance to clean up house after all the spruce needles have dropped, all the gifts lavishly unwrapped., and all the dishes and serving pieces used and now needing to be put away again.
The charming painting (above) was given to me by William (Billy), after we cleaned out his storage unit- and I really do love it and enjoy living with it. His mother, Ann, did it in 1965 !
I decided to order another ikat rug- to replace the old damask pattern one that was previously in the "dining area" - (shown above) - and after all this cleaning and dusting, I made a nice dinner for the two of us, from a recipe I found on the Domestic Daddy blog- a pot roast recipe. Dessert was vanilla ice cream with pineapple, fresh mint, and a Pepperidge Farm cookie. It was great to have a whole weekend to relax, and work on my apartment. Stay tuned for more! DF *****
