nesting...

Doing some nesting and lots of spring cleaning around here during our spring break week. It feels so great to clear.I'm really enjoying my mondo beyondo class and have been extremely introspective (and emotional) lately. Jen and Andrea are amazing hostesses in this adventure. Here is a little place I set up to honor my dreams.
Enjoying the amazing spring weather we are having here in Minnesota. We just *may* have the first ever snow free March since they started keeping records in 1895. Crazy! This has everyone thinking about gardening and other outdoor pursuits. I've been enjoying some spring decor in our local stores. This grouping and color palette really inspired me. Love the fun bird houses and other "yard decor".


I want to use this palette and carry it over to Chloe's strawberry shortcake party. I'm going for a fun, whimsical, vintage style. Of course I love to oogle over the cakes and decor ideas over on flickr. Yum!

So glad you're already enjoying a wonderful spring in Minnesota! Everyone's color palette is changing and lightening -- so much fun to see! Happy spring!!

Visiting from our Mondo class to say I LOVE all the color on your blog. The pictures just made me feel all springy!

(It might also help that we have the windows open in NC.)

PS. My husband is from Fargo so I know how miraculous it is there was so little snow in March!

Beautiful daffodils.
Your Mondo Beyondo class sounds interesting and your little vignette to honour your dreams is pretty.
Looks like Chloe's birthday will be fun

Isn't it wonderful that it's been such a warm March here in Minnesota (even though I just had to live through the flood-threat here in St. Paul!) Check out Dayton's, I mean Macy's flower show in DT Mpls--it's beautiful! (I posted some not-so-great pics) Como's spring show is also up! Spring is such a welcome reward after winter!
