Our Little Apartment

This weekend was uneventful, though very productive. We spent the past two days scrubbing floorboards and cabinets and tile and sinks, vacuuming every room in the apartment, washing all the curtains and tablecloths, and organizing every closet and drawer.

Though we didn't get to everything on the list {yes, I did have a list}, I'm really proud of what we've done! After going through each room and taking a good look at how clean it really is in here, I realized I've never given you a tour of our little apartment. So, that's what this Sunday night post is about.







 Like I said, its not done yet {thus the piles of clothes to iron}, but it looks much better than it did on Friday night! Do any of you have plans for Spring cleaning?

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.

Much love,

Tids said...

Thank you for visiting my blog! I love your apartment. When can I move in? ;)

Felicity said...

Since you asked, yes I do have plans to spring clean.
But as Spring is sixth months away in my pocket of the world, that's what they'll stay - plans!

Seriously though, I feel like I'm constantly cleaning and washing [pop on in to read my posts about my laundry being a portal to a David Attenborough documentary] but there is a great deal of satisfaction when the job is done.

It was so lovely to visit your home and I love that you tackled this task together.

xx Felicity

Stopping by from Mingle Monday!
You make me want to take pictures of my house! It isn't as cute as yours, but between Spring cleaning and nesting it probably looks the best it has since we bought it 7 months ago.

I miss having an apartment that I can clean top to bottom in a few hours ::Sigh::

I'm visiting from Mingle Monday - your apartment is super cute and clean! Way to go getting that spring cleaning done early. It's snowing here, so no spring cleaning on my horizon at this time.

What a cute place you have! I especially love the white cabinets in the kitchen :)

I haven't done any spring cleaning yet but with my in-laws visiting at the end of the month, I know it is on the horizon!

Meg said...

It looks so pretty and homey. All your guests will feel right at home. :)

lynnricchio said...

Wow, Joelle! It looks great! You guys worked very hard this weekend. I have some things at my house that need to be done.....

Krista said...

Your apartment is adorable! I love that you use a dresser instead of a TV table. You can never have too much storage space, and it looks great

your apartment is so cute!! i like what you've done with it. just when i was going to start my spring cleaning, my dr. put me on bed rest so slowly i'm guiding my husband through the tasks i wanted to get done...realistically though it will have to be summer cleaning! :)
