Glimpses of Spring.

Spring is Seattle this year has been undeniably less than favorable. I think we are all ready for some sunshine, even if it comes with cooler temperatures. Over the past few weeks, we have gotten a few glimpses of our springtime...


Even if it requires a stocking cap, we'll take the no rain/party sunny days and run with it.


With the non-spring Spring we've been having, I find myself looking for little ways to make it feel more springy, even if the weather isn't cooperating.

My latest and greatest tip: mini carnations.

Now before you write off carnations, just wait. They certainly aren't my favorite flower either, and any of them that are dyed to match certain corresponding holidays are definitely off limits, but I really think you can't go wrong with a bouquet of white mini's. For about $6, I was able to make not one, not two, no my friends- not even three, but FOUR arrangements for our home. Talk about bang for your buck!


And what's even better? They have lasted for over two weeks! Here's hoping that the weatherman is right in predicting a bit of sunshine for us later this week.

Cheers friends and happy Monday!

We got a sneak peak of spring this weekend (upper 70's yes please!)...i am crossing my fingers it is just around the corner for you all! And nice work on your flower arrangements! I also like the smell of carnations but agree no dyed flowers allowed :)
