Despite what the calendar says, New England still has a decidedly un-Spring-like feel to it. So let's find inspiration somewhere other than outside our windows! A quick search of Etsy Treasuries brought much-needed warmth to zeetzeet's studio. Happy creatures, pretty greens and purples, pops of sunshiny yellow - good medicine for a winter-weary bunch. Nikki's "Spring Fling!" treasury began with this sweet felt dachshund puppet, Serafina who melted our hearts. (If only she could melt some snow, too!)
We love the spring green of this vintage flower brooch. And because we're realistic (April Showers and all) and don't want to seem too lovely-weather-greedy, this rain cloud necklace deserves a mention.
So yes, my friends, Spring is coming. Crocus shoots can be seen in the flower beds. A pansy even forced it's way up through the brick walkway. We can make it, thanks to a little help from a treasury search and a few optimistic flower buds.
