Channeling Spring

I refuse to live in a winter state of mind for another day. I'm thinking spring. I bought this blue flowered voile scarf (under plates) and I may be stomping around in boots and gloves but I have spring tied around my neck.

And check out those plates. Sunday's run by the Goodwill brought us these treasures. We don't plan to collect this Finnish Arabia china on purpose but it calls to us when least expected. We found a set of 6 egg painted egg cups one summer day at the flea market and we've been in love with it ever since.

And I braved the fierce winds to cut some pussy willow from the garden. Yes, the garden. It's visible again, the snow has melted away to reveal clumps of daffodils, tulips and snowdrops all reaching for the sun. And so am I.


  1. I'm so jealous that you already have bulbs peeking! And my favorite store is the Goodwill. All of my best stuff is from there or the recycle center!

  2. You'll have bulbs soon. You gave winter quite a talking to yourself in your newest post! Anyway as I write, the winds are about 150 MPH, not pleasant.

  3. Winds in Central Virginia, too, altho I did see the tips of the woods hyacinths peeking out a couple of days ago, and the hellebores are trying ever-so-hard to pull off some blooms. They are at least 60 days late, but with feet of snow sitting on them for the past month, I am happy with any effort!
