My house needs sprucing up. I missed spring cleaning, and I need some motivation to declutter, organize, and deep-clean.
I know! I’ll invite two literary characters over for tea. They will have lots of advice that will inspire me in my tasks.
Who’s coming to my “Tidy-up Tea”? Why Mrs. Peniston from The House of Mirth and Miss Ophelia from Uncle Tom’s Cabin, of course! Between Mrs. Peniston’s enthusiasm for going through every closet and cabinet in chapter 9 of her book and Miss Ophelia’s ideas for Dinah’s kitchen organization in her book, I’ll be set.
Can you think of anyone else I should invite? Because I think Peniston and Ophelia could easily have a cleaning/organizing television show on TLC.
