Here's my own Enchanted Home prescription for welcoming this long-awaited Spring into your rooms!
To "Throw Off Cozy" in your home, pick and choose what strikes your fancy from the following...
1. FRESH FLOWERS!
Stop at the grocery store to pick up some inexpensive fresh flowers for your entry table. Use a clear glass vase and change the water every other day.2. FRESH SLEEP!
Change your bedding. Take off your flannel sheets and switch to a bright, fresh pastel or floral percale. Ahh -- feels so great against your legs! While you're at it, consider changing your shower curtain, too!
3. FRESH VIEW!
Wash your windows, (or cheat like me and just do the south-facing ones). You can make a great all-purpose window cleaner by combining 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap or detergent, and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Shake to blend. For streak-free results, use newsprint instead of rags or paper towels.
4. FRESH LOOK!
Put 5 to 10 accessories (or more!) away. Time to store those pillar candles until next Fall! Spring is about less to look at. Think light, clean, clear.
