Spring Cleaning Anyone

It is time to think about and do some Spring Cleaning! I love being able to open some windows and circulate some fresh air on warm enough days.. don't you?

I had been visiting over at Heirloom Treasures and it is a really sweet blog by Jeanette O'Donnell, she loves to sew Christening Gowns and sell them, garden in her cottage garden and she is also an author!

I was so please when she told me that I won her book in a recent give-away she held!

This is a great book, written for working mums. (Jeanette is from Australia, I love how they say "Mum"!)
But I think any body who is in need of some great tips on how to get organized and streamline the household chores. She writes it in Seven Easy Steps that can get the whole family helping out!

Jeanette, thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I don't want to give away her steps, but you should go visit here blog and see all her pretty ideas she has. And see about purchasing her book, too!

It will get your Spring Cleaning all geared up and be ready for sunmmer!

Blessings to you all,
Little Susie Home Maker

    Spring cleaning? Nope, never, lol.... just teasing.

  11. Sure, it's fine if you want to use the Raggedy Ann and Andy for your personal crafting. I have a few other RA&A dolls pictured on my paperdoll page (under my header), if you want to take a look at those.

  12. What a fun book to win. I hope you'll pass on some of the tips...I could use some inspiration! Sweet hugs!

  13. What a great book, but I think it might take more than seven steps to organize parts of my home.

  14. A must needed book. Congrats to you on your wine. It's time to organize.

  15. Just seven ways to organize your home? It’s quite unbelievable but I hope that book clearly says it all. I hope I can get a copy of this since we’re also planning to renovate our house. I guess some of the tips here can help. :)

  16. How nice...and, just in time for Spring cleaning. I haven't started mine yet...but your post is a reminder to me to get it on my schedule. It's been a bit too cold here to open up my windows but it won't be long.
    I love the Heirloom blog you have featured. I make heirloom garments and appreciate the many intricate techniques and charming touches.
    Have a sweet day,
    Carolynn xo
