This was what my road looked like last week after 3 feet of snow fell in Connecticut. I love the way the trees look in their winter white, but it's getting a little old. The snow, that is. It's pretty at first, but now a week later, melting and refreezing, dirt thrown from the snowblower, the picture postcard charm is gone.
If I can't look outside for signs of spring, I'll try inside instead. In my studio, I pulled out 50 yards of pastel and floral prints that I bought in the Garment District in New York, last year. Why I haven't done anything with them yet, I can't imagine. But I was very glad to have their cheery prints flung over my table. I am going to sew up a spring.
If you can't wait for April showers or May flowers either right, now is a great time to check out these Etsykids Shops on Etsy. Here are a few signs of early spring, delivered right to your door.
Leilas Flower Garden has everything you need to grow a garden on a bedroom wall. You don't even need dirt or a shovel. Never mind my daughter's room, I want these for my studio right now.
Crochet Village sells every pattern you could need to whip up your own bit of warm whimsy. The flamingos make me want to book my Florida plane tickets, right now!
