Cleaning tea cups


This morning granddaughter#1 came over and handed down 47 tea cups for me to wipe while she cleaned the shelves and then she put them all back. This first pic is dark but you can see the higher shelf with 17 tea cups. The side shelves each hold 15.
 K. is so sweet and helpful and is very much appreciated.




So can I call this the beginning of Fall cleaning?  Not that Spring cleaning got done . Anyway, that's about all I did so far today. Now I have my breadmaker going and I'm hoping to have raisin bread in the oven in a couple of hours. It's hot again but even when I don't use the oven it gets quite unbearable by late afternoon so why not bake!

Thanks for visiting,

  3. Your teacups are beautiful! I saw a couple that I have also! That made me smile. :) What a sweet granddaughter to help you with that cleaning job!

    Raisin bread sounds so yummy! And I so agree...it is going to be unbearably hot anyway...so why not bake! :)

  6. YOu are lucky to have Sweet Grand Daughter, to help you, with all that cleaning!!!!!

    We never think of Spring or Fall Cleaning. I don't actually remember it, from growing up either. Certainly not the way it is pictured, in old books. :-)

    I like your way of thinking! It will be hot, late this afternoon, whether you bake or not. And if you bake, you will have delicious bread, to enjoy, in the heat!!!! :-)

    Gentle hugs,

    Now you have me thinking about raisin bread. We actually have been having cooler weather all week so I should make some too.
    Have a nice weekend!
