I love color!

I have been super happy this week - despite the fact that both my poor kiddos have been quite sick. They are starting to get better - so that inspires me. Plus - everything outside is gradually starting to green up. Green is my favorite color! The snow is melting away and every day my daughter and I go out and count the tulips popping up through the muddy earth. We are very happy it's spring in New England!
And look at this - my friend and neighbor brought this by and left it in my porch yesterday. It's a small cupboard that she painted a greenish blue color. She's moving currently and is sending things my way - this is the third small cupboard she's given me this week. How did she know that I have a thing for cupboards/cabinets? Thank you, Kristen! I'm sure she's too busy now to read my post, but I want her to know that I love her offerings and I really appreciate it. And look what I put inside - it's a great place to house and display my new Trinkets merchandise! I love all the colors and I enjoy having things displayed there.
I have been having a blast making new colorful things for my Etsy shop and also using them in my own layouts. And spring is great picture-taking time - this weekend is the town Easter Egg Hunt!

Colorful and inspiring!! Those buttons are darling! I may need to place another order. And I couldn't agree more about being happy things are popping up. We have some flowers and herbs that are too. I do love this time of the year.

Your blog is beautiful, and I love your etsy shop. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. Also, it sounds like lots of fun to count tulips. Have fun at the Easter Egg hunt.

thank you so much for your purchase today. it was a rainy day and my littlest guy was home sick (and getting sick) and that little "etsy transaction" message just brightened my spirits! thanks so much.

What a great neighbor you have. Your buttons and other trims look so cute in the cupboard. Your things are the cutest Laurie-it's like going to a candy store to visit your Etsy Shoppe. The buttons and fabric flowers are the neatest! I haven't used mine yet.....I think I'm hoarding them. I hope you and your family have a happy, Blessed Easter. We had snow's melting now but it's really cold. Oh to feel the sun!

How cute - thank you for stopping by my blog and for the kind words! Lisa was the only person brave enough to sign up for a pay-it-forward thing with me, months ago. She is kind to be so patient - it took me forever to mail the bag!

I love your buttons - I think they'd look great on some colorful spring bags! :)
