Thinking of Spring
The spring equinox has arrived on our doorstep. Yeah! Found pussy willows already. Yeah again! Lots of birds at the feeders and expect to see those little bits of bright yellow starting to appear on the Goldfinches. The sun is feeling warm on your face........ when you find a spot out of the wind.
I've been visiting my favorite daily blogs like poppytalk , craftzine, and desire to inspire to gather decorating inspiration for my upcoming studio space. Trying hard to keep in mind that it needs room for tangled reed and tools but looking forwrd to creating displays and shifting gears whenever an idea strikes. Of course right now it's those beautiful spring greens and thoughts of robins egg blue that appeal to me. Will try to use a background color that will shift easily with the seasons so I can go from beach to fall harvest and then rich holiday displays. Settled on putting Benjamin Moores 'dill pickle' somehwere. That inspiration came from Canadian Home and Country feb/march 09 issue.
Happily, I'm seeing a mix of twigs, antlers and bold colors in both relaxed country or modern decor. Can't wait to start the renos and get to work on a rustic twig arbor to welcome folks to the studio. Picture is last years garden. Only three more months until those lilies in the background bloom!
