Spring Cleaning


It is saturday, I'm in my bed... the sun is flowing in through the window... and everything seems just a little bit perfect... then in through the door comes my mum... with the cats trailing her... and into the bed the wee ones come, ma's voice announcing the coffee is finnished and it's allready 7.30 am.... and I remember... Ma stayed the night on the sofa after a bottle of wine last night... and ma... well she is one hell of a morning birdie! I try helplessy to pull my covers over my head, but it seems both Hexa & Huldra is in on ma's game... and prod me untill I am up and awake... And even before I get out from my tangle of sheets I hear the hoover start downstairs... yes... ma the whirlwind is allready on high speed... o.OBut she does get the job done! In no time and with plenty of smiles!

So I am not complaining... a personal maid on saturday is everyone's dream right?... ha ha... I managed to coax her into having a wee bit of breakfast before I started upstairs... head in the toilet scrubbing it until it gleamed... and so went the day.... The entire cottage got cleaned, and even the porch now seems to be ready for spring... even if the garden is still covered in too much snow...the cats went in and out and were quite pleased with the nice sun and the hustle and bustle...

Then we did our grocery shopping, went home and made a great family dinner for the homecomming of my sister, who studies photography in England. After the feast both daddy and my sister crashed on the sofa while me and ma did the dishes....
this green lump is in fact my sister.... ha ha!!!

all in all it was a great saturday, and now that they have all gone and its just me and the cats left, it feels rather quiet... but alittle wine and wonderful candles is great too...
so I leave you today with some glimpses from my easter decorated house. My easter, as a pagan, started on spring equinox and I am in full celebration of spring!

The bottles in my kitchen window make a beautiful colour display when the sun shines through them... And I cant wait for those bulbs to come into bloom!
we got some really precious eastereggs at the shop... they are so beautifully nostalgic and just too cute to pass up... I love them!Tiny pastel chocolate eggs from sweden are my favorite. They look so real my sister didnt dare take one before asking if they were in fact candy! Ha ha... they are perfect for decoration in my bird themed diningroom....
and then my sister "surprised" me with this adorable bird house for my garden... it's so perfectly me... green AND with a dragonfly to top it off.... hah!!! LOVE IT!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, even if it does snow!!! :)

Blessings from
- Tee, Hexa & Huldra
