The Mole had been working very hard all morning, spring cleaning his little home. First with brooms, then with dusters; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a brush and a pail of whitewash; till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing. It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on the floor and said 'Bother!' and 'O blow!' and also 'Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.
All day yesterday I worked in my little mole hole until I flung down my brush and said "Hang spring-cleaning!"
The house just seems to sparkle in its cleanliness. Here are some pictures of my good work...
The family room was the last room that I got to and I didn't do nearly as much as I'd hoped. The mantel is a jumble of stuff...lots of Easter bunnies still hanging around. It still needs work but I did vacuum and dust (a little)
This is just a picture I wanted to show you. I used to carry this little reproduction toy castle and I'm so glad I kept one for myself. It is one of my favorite things.
And here's where I've put my new dollhouse...I still need to work on it but I did manage to banish some cobwebs and spray away the dirt and grime. I bought a ready-made wood floor that I will put in as soon as I paint the inner walls.
This is my sweet little desk. It didn't have a good home until recently when I decided to put it at the front door. I think it looks nice there.
I put a lamp inside this bird cage. Rich thinks it's a bit silly but I kind of like it.
