With all the time we’ve spent renovating the Hooterville house and farm over the past 13 months, it’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to do any heavy-duty dusting in My Cottage of Bliss.
Apparently longer than I realized!
Dusting has never been my favorite housekeeping job anyway but when I started to wrap and box up the nick-nacks and collections, I was actually repulsed by how grimy everything felt.
I couldn’t bring myself to pack it all up without washing it first. This is when I wish I didn’t have so many collections!
Pictured above are pieces of my grandmother’s milk glass which she gave to me through the years prior to her death 4 years ago at the age of 99. I haven’t even gotten to my mom’s crystal pieces, my Precious Moments figurines, or the china cabinet yet!
I’m just really ready to have this business of packing and moving DONE so it’s a pain to have to take the time to wash this stuff before I wrap and box it for the move. I have to keep reminding myself that even though it’s slowing me down now, it will save me time later. It will be wonderful to just unpack and immediately put my (clean) collections away in their new home.
What’s your favorite and/or least favorite housekeeping job?
