Cottages and Roses

Cottages and roses are perfect together, aren't they? I decided to skip my office meeting and broker open houses today to give my place some much-need attention and some real elbow grease. I'll never forget the first time I heard those words...I was cleaning my bathroom tub as a 4th grader and my mom walked past and told me to use some elbow grease and I actually started looking for it. And that's the truth. My mother laughed when I asked her where she kept it.

Looking in between my cleaning project today. Here it is cleaned while the sun is gone. Hugs from Maria

Love the elbow grease story. Reminds me of the story of my aunt in the l950's who went to the drug store looking for "Loving Care" hair products and asked for "Lots of Lovin" by mistake. Boy was she embarrassed, and we never let her forget it!

My mother always used the term, "Elbow Grease" too. It's funny how youth interprets language, thanks for sharing your youthful interpretation :-)

Great pic, I can almost smell those roses.
