You Are My Sunshine

It truly is amazing how a little bit of sunshine can lift your spirits.  We have had sunshine for the past three days here in Pittsburgh--that is somewhat of a small miracle.  I have cracked the windows just a bit and opened the front door welcoming the sunshine to come in and stay awhile.  The sunshine not only lifts my spirts but it also gets me in the mood to dust away the Winter and do a little Spring cleaning.  I love it when the windows shine and everything smells so fresh and clean.  I even borrowed my mom's floor steamer and cleaned all of our hardwood floors.  I teased her when she bought it--telling her she had the cleaning sickness.  I must now admit that little thing is amazing.  My floors have never been so clean.   (hmmm I hope she forgets which one of her daughters borrowed it (heheheh)   With a clean house and all of the Winter decorations carefully put away for another season, I thought it was a good idea to bring a little Spring to our house.  Here are a few of my favorites......
The sunshine has even inspired the creative side of me in this little mini brag book that I created for my etsy shop.....
So thankful for the SUNSHINE today :)

Mimi, your house looks lovely! I think I missed the spring cleaning gene, but seeing your photos does make me want to do a little sprucing up around here! And that brag book is precious! (Also, I just read about "Dandelion Wishes" on your sidebar -- great insights and sweet name for your blog/shop!)

Love the various pastel colored eggs, and those rabbits are just adorable. Now, I'm in the mood for Spring!

You made me want to go home and start spring cleaning. You home looks lovely. I'm very jealous. By the way, remember the steamer lives at my house...it is just on vacation at yours.

Looking good! I need to find that
motivation you have for cleaning.
I love a clean house but getting it there is such a chore!
Spring Break is coming so maybe then I can get something done.
Have great evening!

It's looking very Easter-y over at your house! I like the way you used the flower frog to hold your tags.
I have always wanted to try one of those steam cleaners. One of these days I may just go get myself one. I like the sound of the that cleans the grout on your tile and the drains in your sink as well as your floors... Can't remember which brand that was.
