Despite the seemingly ever-present rain here in Chicago, I have grand dreams of Spring! I can’t wait for the bright colors of flowers, or that green as fresh things sprout from the earth.. It’s a great season! So, this week, I’m featuring things with a Spring theme.
First is this wonderful concrete bowl by impurevessels. As it says in the listing details, it would make a perfect birdbath for your garden (and to cover any bald spots of the lawn). I love the pattern and the natural feel to the colors. Now if I only had a lawn…
Next up is this fantastic Leather Wrap Bracelet from Byjodi. I love the colors in the beads and how the combination of the blues with the leather chord gives this accessory a rustic and elegant feel. It’s beautiful!
This setting is a lovely parallel for the juxtaposition of fresh soil and flowers that come in the Spring.
This week’s NonTeam Treasury Challenge is brought you by the beautiful shop of JessicaTorres. The official inspiration item is this fineart print called The Coneflowers II. There are so many other fantastic photos in her shop, you should definitely check them out.
I love the feel of this photo; so soft and still so bright. It was a beautiful inspiration piece. Coupled with Emily Dickinson’s poem (of the same title), here is the treasury I compiled:
Ever since watching the old French movie, The Red Balloon, I’ve held a certain, nostalgic love for the simple pleasure of balloons.
This design sort of mimics that idea of childhood wonder. I love the simplicity of this elephant design, and the balloon gives it a splash of fun! I chose soft colors to compliment the ivory of the tee. Plus, what’s not to love about the great flourished collar?
This week’s NonTeam Treasury winner was JessicaTorres (check out all the beautiful pictures posted here). This treasury of mine was inspired by JessicaTorres’ fine art photo, Yellow.
If the weather ever cooperates, my treasury symbolizes how I would love to start each morning:
Every Monday I try to post a new listing in my shop, and this week is a bright and fresh take on my Fermata design. I love the classic Black and White version, but this one in Spring Green sure does pop!
I love this vibrant green color. It reminds me of fresh grass and Spring!
