I had great intentions, as you saw, on Monday. Clean and clean and clean.
And, guess what...I did clean. But right smack in the middle of cleaning, I made up a new, very unnecessary project.
You see, the wall above the mantel had some soot stains from some candles burned ages ago. Oh, I need to clean those, I thought. I took out my super dooper Mr. Clean sponge (which I love very much) Well, in my zeal to tackle this long abandoned and ignored but now suddenly vitally important sooty problem, I took the paint off the wall. I don't know what I uncovered...drywall? who knows. But what I do know is that what was uncovered was uglier by far than soot. And, as you know, soot is ugly.
So this is what I did smack dab in the middle of serious cleaning...
A wispy watercolored sky and landscape to serve as a backdrop for my miniature village. I just got the chalkware houses this week and they are among my very favorite things in the whole wide world.
If you're wondering why I was cleaning so much or rather putting off cleaning so much, my friends Pam, Lorraine and Pat all came over today to help me put together packages for the current Club Little House...48 participants each sending in 12 items. You do the math, I'm too tired to even blink my eyes.
It didn't even matter one iota that I'd cleaned because the house was completely trashed with all the Club Little House goings on. Here, see for yourself...
