Spring Cleaning!

Okay, it is 47 degrees and the sun is shining. I am feeling some serious spring cleaning urges. I like to move my furniture around and vacuum under everything and dust and you know all that stuff. So I decided to start in my great room. This is how I have it now, think angles...These pictures were taken from the front entry looking in.

And this one from the dining area looking in..
I moved the sofa and found this...
Then the love seat....
Apparently, someone is eating in there and no one is suppose to... (I am actually really pleasantly surprised that it looked so good under there. Even though there was a chocolate chip and some other cracker looking thing.) I saved them for evidence for when the little kiddies get home. Ha Ha.
Anyway, now it looks like this, a little more squared off. From the dining area...
And from the entry...

Yea, I don't really like it this way. See from the entry and also the dining area you run right into the back of the couch and love seat. Not very welcoming is it. The angle way is my personal favorite so it will only last this way a few weeks or so. But, I know it is clean, right.
Now I'm off to find another room to spring clean.


  1. Doesn't it feel good when you know you have given your house a good clean? I am so impressed that when you move your sofas you only have the tiniest little mess! I think my dustballs are bigger than your wrappers! xx

  2. Good job Brooke! That's way less then I find under my couches when I move them around. Consider yourself lucky!! Happy spring cleaning!

  3. Spring cleaning and rearranging are always refreshing! Even if you don't keep the furniture in it's new place, it's always good to have a fresh perspective for awhile. I'm in need of doing that myself. (ALthough, I'm terrified as to what I'll find underneath everything!)

  4. OH I so need to get into the Spring cleaning thing. I blame our still frigid weather up here! :) Love your fireplace!

  5. I like the branch above the doorway!
