  2. I am a follower and My least favorite chore is putting the laundry away. Mainly because in my house it involves fixing the drawers too! Since they all rummage thru nicely, organized, folded, clean clothes making them look like they were never washed to start!

  3. Andrea I adore your project which happens to be made with one of my favorite colors too :)

    Ya know windows really are a bummer! I had not thought about that until you mentioned it so that tells you how often I do them lol! My dog even messes up the window on our door to come in rubbing her big ole nose all over it. If she had fingers I am sure she would leave fingerprints for me too lol!

    Happy hopping!
