{a new week, a new year, and spring cleaning in the wintertime}





. . . but of course, spring cleaning takes place in the spring, but around here, it also takes place in the height of wintertime, for, along with the plans and dreams, and the need to re-order and re-organise, comes the overwhelming desire to clean and sort and stack and fold; files, virtual and otherwise, suddenly seem unruly, inboxes a mess, and one wonders about the contents of drawers and closets and cupboards — and so, for this new week of this new year, it’s clean [monogrammed] linens, fresh flowers and fresh starts . . .

  • Hi, I love your blog and have enjoyed it from sometime. I am surprised and slightly delighted to see one of my images used. Not sure how you came across it but it would be nice if you gave credit to the photographer and my website where these French Linens are sold. Thank you!

  • The embroidery and lace details on the table napkins are lovely. I feel a little nostalgic since my mother always keeps a handful of these vintage napkins back in the day.

  • Roseline, just wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderful site. For the last year or two that I’ve been reading {this is glamorous}, it’s proven a consistent source of inspiration, escape and happiness for me.

    My week is already off to a rough start, but taking a moment to savor these wonderful photos with my morning coffee put me at ease.

    Please keep up the incredible work on my favorite blog!

  • Like you I love Spring cleaning and purging at the beginning of the year. There’s something very therapeutic about it :-)

  • Si jolie!

  • So happy to hear we aren’t the only ones doing spring cleaning early, how else to pass the dark and dreary days of a Canadian winter? Now, if only I could get this beautiful white result……..sigh. Lovely, lovely post Rosaline. xx

  • Those linens, especially the monogrammed ones, are amazing. I hate that we have a Cal King bed because it means I can’t take advantage of vintage bedding!

  • You have the most beautiful photos on your blog…thank you for sharing…

  • How beautiful!! =) This is just what I need to look at! I’m going home tonight and cleaning like a mad woman! I love all the crisp whites and blush bowls! Beautiful! =)
