I took these pictures at least a week ago, before the official start of spring. And then what do we get for the first few days of spring? Full on winter weather, that's what. My parents' had snow and it's been freezing. But it's finally starting to look like this every day and I can't be happier.

I bought myself a bouquet of flowers today, on an impulse, while picking up wine at TJ's. I think spring is making me crave living, growing things. I've been researching terrariums like crazy and have plans to make a mason jar version. I also went to the thrift store on saturday and found an old glass lampshade, like for a pendant light. It's huge, all beveled glass and aged brass, and I'm going remove all the lighting components and use it on top of some sort of tray or dish for another terrarium. It's so big though, I don't really have anywhere to put it, so I'm also hunting for a pedestal table of the right size.


  1. Spring always motivates me too. Love your terrarium idea. The chambray shirt is a nice thrift score (and form the little boys section, no less!)

  2. Growing up I had a forsythia bush outside my window. It was always the first to bloom and made me so happy :) I love that you've included it in this post and matched it with that adorable skirt! I also really, really love your tights!

  3. Super cute tights girl! Great look! Gosh I miss Seattle in the spring...


  4. Why not buy yourself a bouquet? You deserve it XD
    You may as well relish any delightful spring weather that is sent your way!
