It's that time of year again! As the warmer weather soothes stiff joints and brushes off the last vestiges of winter, homes beg for the same fresh start everyone promised themselves at the beginning of the year. Clothes are donated, rooms are scrubbed, and yards are tended. While the fauna leave their winter dens or return from long migrations, the world blooms with new growth in vibrant splashes of color.
For April's Band of Bloggers post, we will answer a few questions about Spring and the ever-loved Spring Cleaning. Feel free to join in and answer these questions in the comments below!
Do you decorate for Spring?
I used to decorate a lot more than I do now. It wasn't really for spring though, but more for Easter. The past couple years I've been decorating less and less. This year I got most of my Easter things out but then just didn't like it and put about 90% back into storage. I'm not even feeling that old "Oooh that's so cute! I need to buy it!" urge as I see all the adorable Easter decorations in the stores. Going minimal is definitely growing on me.
Are there any products you find yourself reaching for as the weather warms? This can be anything; food, clothing, bath and body, wax, you name it!
I can't really think of anything that I start reaching for in spring. Well, I do get out the few more pastel or spring colored shirts I have, but other than that no. I start melting less heavy bakery scents in wax as spring comes around, and tend to start melting brighter fun and fruity scents.
Do you participate in the Spring Cleaning craze?
I do not do any big sort of Spring Cleaning. I suck at housework in general so something is always in need of some major cleaning at any time of year. LOL I do look forward to starting to crack windows open on nicer days to help clear out the winter musties.
