And as we decorate the house for Christmas in December
We clean the house in January
(Closets, Cabinets and Drawers)
and once those are all neat and tidy
we do the
(Walls, windows and woodwork)
(well almost all -- there are a couple of pieces that I cannot move)
and cleaning behind them
Sweeping walls and ceilings
and wiping down woodwork
smells of polish and soap
But there is still more to clean
The silver . . .
First the napkin rings
The ones that I've been collecting "forever"
The collection started by Husband Jim
who bought a box with three napkin rings in it at a
garage sale, here in town
A few are gifts but most are remembrances of trips past
(They make a great souvenir -- small, easy to pack and not easily broken)
They either have names or initials on them
That is a "must"!
Sometimes I do the boiling water/soda/alumnium pan polishing
But that doesn't last all that long --
they tarnish way too fast
The best way, is the old fashioned way
Haggerty's polish and soft cloths
They look so pretty when they're all bright and shining1
And they look pretty back in place on top of the Chinese cabinet in the dining room
The old server
has a lot of silver on it's bottom shelf
That looks so much nicer when it is bright and shining!
And the tea set on the sideboard
(It's used the most and usually needs less of a polish)
And the dining room looks so nice
with the CCD clean and neat,
the WWW washed
And the silver polished!
And it's done!
It's Sunday and I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays
