In The Pink

I just wanted to share the first of a project I've started...it's called
If I understand this correctly, it means that every single object in my house is supposed to be clean and organized and in its place all at the same time.
I choose to disregard the part about 'all at the same time' as well as 'every single object'. I'd kill myself if I had to do that or even tried!
So, in keeping with the abbreviated version of cleaning the house, I've chosen to start cleaning one part of my house at a time, and the pink dishes are the first things to get a bath.
Hope you enjoy them.

I've also had another brilliant idea and would like your feedback on it.
I want to host a weekly post where everyone who wants to participate may do so. I'd like to have one called, "Show us Your Lace Tuesday" or something like that. Laces are some of my favorite things, and when I see pictures of what others have and use, I get all excited.
So, tell me what you think, and I'll start. Give me some good ideas of names too...perhaps I'll start by having a giveaway.

The dried roses are from my awesome wonderful husband. He has been wonderful to me on my birthdays and our anniversaries. I have kept every rose he's given me over the years and dried them for keepsakes. With some I've dried the petals and have them inside this glass vase to hold the roses that I've dried by hanging them upside down. I just love the light pink and cream colors when they're dried.

I suppose now I have to choose another part of the house to "clean", and then when I get it all pretty and dust-free I will take a picture of it. Just think! In a year or two, I will have a blog full of clean objects posted that will stay clean forever in pictures, and then I'll have to start all over again in the house and clean it all over again! (It will take me at LEAST that long to get to it all!!).

Please let me know what you think about the "Show us Your Lace Tuesday" idea!
One more thing...I just want to thank all of you who have decided to follow my blog! I never thought I'd have 20 people decide to actually follow ME! Wow! And I've had so much fun over at your blogs. You have inspired me to clean and decorate and make my house a home.

To have every object in my house clean, organised and in its proper place at the same time, I would need a team of 50 helpers at least, lol. Its impossible for ordinary human beings, surely. But then I suppose there are some people out there who have reached Superwoman status. Sadly, that will never be me.

Everyone would swear that aliens have took over my body, if my whole house were clean at the same time!!

Just cleaning those lovely dishes will take some time, but at least you will have pretties to look at while you are cleaning!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I'll be back to see you often.

Cleaning those beautiful pink wares will be a labor of love I'm sure! And thanks so much for your very sweet comment on my bridal shower post, you made me blush! It's a pleasure to follow you!

Pretty set of dishes. You know if everybody in my family would quit eating, sleeping, showering, etc, I might be able to accomplish a perfectly clean house. They just won't cooperate. lol.
