Do people still ‘spring clean’?
I can still remember my grandmothers tradition of cleaning the house from top to bottom as a child. As soon as spring arrived mattresses would be turned, rugs would be taken outside and beaten, and net curtains would be taken down and soaked in the bath while the windows were rubbed until they shone.
Nowadays it’s probably more likely that we will mark the change of seasons by a subtle swapping of the wool and velvet cushions on the sofa, for the cooler linen ones that have been stored away all winter.
And I’m wishing that I had the kind of windows where I could hang these gorgeous sheers to waft in the breeze and diffuse the sunlight.
They are the new decorative wide-width, linen-mix Cirrus sheers from Romo. The designs include a delicate trailing leaf and pretty floral, ikat-edged cut fretwork, geometrics and a variety of usable stripes.
Do you have any spring traditions?
