What a Nice Weekend!

Hey Everyone -
Long time no post! I haven't had that much post-worthy to comment on lately, but this weekend I got out with a good friend, my daughter and my mother for some shopping and I wanted to share some pictures. We went to one of our favorite destinations, White Home Collections in Wilton, NH. It's an old Colonial House filled with three floors of treasures! And this weekend they opened a special new shop called White Home Market that featured the theme: French Country. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time and came home with a few treasures! Fun, fun!
Also - spring came to us this weekend. Saturday the weather was nearly 70 degrees and beautiful! I saw crocuses popping up in people's yards and we got to see other signs of spring, like these adorable baby bunnies! Check out how happy my daughter looks cuddling these guys! Hope you're having spring wherever you are!

Is it Spring Yet?

Okay - I am super tired of winter now. It seems like there has been snow in the forecast now every day and I am ready for some sunshine and shorts! :) I really can't complain, however - so many people here were without power for a few days, and we only lost it for a few hours this time around. We were lucky. It seems like there has been so much weather-related damage all around the world right now and it's scary what Mother Nature can do. Isn't it?
Here's what I've been doing to hope for spring. I altered another shape from Say It With Letters that I think is so cute!

She also has the most adorable "woodland" set with a mushroom and snail - I want this next! Check out her shop here!

Here's some other fun things I've been playing with lately. My studio has been taken over with fabric - it's my new obsession! The stacks of fabric are starting to rival my stacks of scrapbooking paper now! But I have always loved colorful shiny buttons! I don't think that will ever change.
But I am so ready for spring flowers. Does anyone have any bulbs blooming yet??
