A camera, bright morning sunlight, my favorite pieces of pottery. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
But it also reveals how desperately in need of a good washing and dusting these pieces are.
Ahem. I’m embarrassed.
As a certified pottery loving lunatic, I have pieces everywhere here at the cottage. Some are behind glass doors and are spared the indignity of dust and grime. Many, however, are on countertops or the piano or the coffee table or on top of the kitchen cupboards.
The ones on top of the kitchen cupboards? I don’t even want to look.
I deliberately haven’t shown you the worst examples. I have some pride.
It’s time for a good cleaning.
Do you regularly clean and dust all the china or pottery that you have on display? Are you a meticulous housekeeper?
Or are you like me; someone who likes to see everything displayed prettily but seems to lack a bit of consistency on the cleaning end of things? I just might be missing the Meticulous Housekeeper Gene.
