The Little Things

This week I've been focusing all my attention on getting the house in order: cleaning, updating, rearranging. Through the process, I've noticed it's the little things that make me happy.

A fresh new curtain in the guest room.

Sundial shells I picked up on the beach.

And the knowledge that in a week or two when all this housework is done, I can get back to knitting and spinning.

What little things around your house make you smile?

  1. Love the blue bottles and the seashells. I've been thinking our guest room could use new curtains, too. My favorite thing in my house is a shelf of family pictures in silver frames.

  2. I love the quilt in the guest room! I've been cleaning this week too, and probably next. I love the sight of a clean sink and a freshly vacuumed floor! Those things rarely last long with muchkins running around! :)

  3. Beautiful photos around your house. My cat, while not so little, is around the house and he always makes me smile. Does that count?

  6. What makes me smile around the house..... I have to say clean counters. That tells me all is done and I have time to knit a row or two. :-)

  8. Cleaning and organizing is good. It doesn't happen much around here but when the house gets to a "certain state" then I need to do it LOL!
    I also really like the butterfly quilt on the bed. Is it an antique?
