I'm just dying for some fresh flowers to photograph. I'm tempted just to go buy a fresh bouquet of tulips or some other pretty flower to photograph till then. And they would brighten up the house too! Yesterday while at my sisters house I saw a cluster of daffodils blooming in her yard! oh it was a pretty sight. ( now, why aren't there any in my yard yet?!)
Can you believe March is almost here?!!
finding ever so many lovely things lately....
this family photo shoot by Wildflower photography. Just dyyyyying over it's cuteness! I love how they used maps and an airplane.
Quilt by Elise Blaha...love the colors she put together and the simple design of it.
This outfit combo by kristine. or polly. love what she put together...love the layers. so pretty!
This song by Francoise Hardy. This style of music is so soft and pretty, although I have no clue what she's saying!
These colorful images on Just when you thought....they are making me want spring to come soooo badly!
And yesterday I spotted my yellow tulips peeking up out of the ground!! I'm sooo excited...I can't wait to have some fresh flowers in the house. especially yellow tulips.
Power of Less by Leo Babauta (this book has been life changing for me! )
listening: Praan by Gary Schuman
loving: sleeping in. very abnormal for me...I'm normally a early riser... I'm not planning on enjoying this pleasure for very long.
food: fresh ginger. loving anything ginger...it's so delightful! This recipe for Sweet & Sour chicken by Martha Stewart is my recent favorite. loving it in smoothies too.
excited about: Celtic Thunder's new album release tomorrow!
inspiration: the coming of spring. that's enough inspiration for me. getting pretty excited!
I just happened to have more pink paper than red, thus deciding my color palette.
Sorry I couldn't get more of the room in the picture..my room is very small and without a wide angle lens it's hard to get everything in the picture!
In my room, I have quite a few framed pictures, so to change things up a bit I took a blank sheet of paper, drew a heart on it, tore small strips of crepe paper and rolled them into lots of tiny rosettes and glued them inside my heart. Stuck it in a frame and just like that, I have new wall art! (I take way to many pictures of my clock...don't you just love it?)
For this frame I used my cricut to cut hearts out of a paint sample ( you know, the ones that have 6 or so of the same color but varying shades) folded them and glued them along the folded line so they popped up a bit.
All of this was sooo much fun for me to make! I had one huge mess in my room ( and one huge mess to clean up!) while making it...but I loved every moment of it!♥
DIY Valentine Cakes - video by tiger in a jar. This is THE cutest video ever made!! you must watch it if you haven't seen it! It will totally make you smile!
This garland looks like it would be pretty easy to make (or, of course buy!) It would look really nice above a bed or desk. I love that they combined a print with it instead of using just just pink and red. Okay, those bowls I think are my favorite find. I really really need those! Popcorn (or even ice cream) would taste soooo much better in a bowl like that! Don't you agree? Make a really nice gift for someone as well. ( hint hint!)
I think these things could and should be used all year round too...not just for this special occasion! what do you think?
More to come....♥
Today when I look out my window, this is what I see!! Isn't it beauutiful?!!! We're in the middle of a blizzard and oh is it so pretty! You can't even see down the street, and drifts are 3+feet high. Around here we hardly ever get much snow, if any at all so this is so fun! I'm dying to go out in it, but the wind is SO cold!
Inside it's oh so cozy! I am working on a scrapbook project ( well, between looking out the window every 10 minutes!) and thinking about some Valentine projects I want to do. Thinking about making myself a cup of tea too. that sounds pretty good.
Am listening to this song today - it is so pretty!!
