DUSTING, DUSTING & MORE DUSTING



SPRING CLEANING, DUSTING. DON'T YOU JUST HATE IT!!
I really don't like dusting. I would rather be creating something or gardening - anything other than dusting BUT I can't have people thinking my dresser is grey and not white now can I??
I really like the way I have things set up on my dresser at the moment so to make sure I put things back where they came from I took a photo!

That is absolutely adorable! Sometimes those big spaces can be more of a challenge than a blessing - but you did a great job :)

I love that dresser! I hate dusting too - but once you get into it, you start rearranging and the end result makes you feel like you have all new things!
Have a great day-
Katrina :)

That cupboard is just GRAND! I also love how you have it displayed. It looks in perfect order to me. On my blog, you asked if I won the shell/painting on an auction. Yes I did and Celeste always has something up for sale. Just click on her name on my blog and see what she has to offer!

That dresser is so gorgeous! I actually like dusting, I do it at work and have got used to it :) I find it relaxing!

Alison Gibbs said...

Peta, I think it is because I usually wash the stuff in dishwashing liquid, cos i like it to shine.

I love your dresser Alison! The colours are just perfect, the cutest china trios and pink glasses!!! I hate dusting too, lol I don't believe in it! My dresser IS grey (isn't it?????)

Penny Carlson said...

Alison that dresser is so shabby sweet! Love the colors of the glasses, etc.

I hate dusting too...seems you dust and then 10 mintues later there is another layer of dust!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying nice things about my mosiacs!

Yes Alison I hate any kind of housework, I recently got some glasses just for close up work, I quickly took them off when I inspected the dustable objects around the house, oh my goodness! I don't think I want to know what needs doing, I'll continue wandering around the house half blind

What a peaceful and serene look you have. I'd have cluttered that up so fast, if I had it. I really admire that look, but just can't get it. So pretty!

You know Alison, if we didn't have "stuff" dusting wouldn't be so bad, but how boring our homes would be. Your dresser looks lovely and yes, I usually go the whole hog & wash everything too. Very time consuming, but worth it.
Your blog is very pretty.
Hugs, Coll :-}

Alison, Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your white dresser. I have been trying to convince my husband that I should paint our china cabinet white. It sets off the pretty things you have so well.

Beautiful picture. I do that, too, so I won't forget where to put things back up!

Love your pink stemware especially! Are those little ceramic cupcakes?

Thanks for sharing such pretties.
