Spring Cleaning at the Farm

vintage-cleaningCleaning in the spring and fall are a huge project around here. A lot of work and feels so good. I just love it! I usually do my spring cleaning sometime during lent, usually right before Easter. After a winter of being cooped up inside with a wood fire and 3 dogs there is plenty to clean. Don’t get me wrong cleaning is a daily chore around here but I know I don’t get the dust out of every crack and corner.

I have a list for everything, and spring cleaning is no exception. I don’t want to forget anything (and I like to check things off). Here is the list I use.
