That time of year and I always just love the way strong reds look against clean whites. Maybe it's that strange Snow-White fixation that's so common with love of contrasts; the look of blood upon the snow. Ah, and snow - we finally got a little of it this weekend here in NYC. Not a lot, and it didn't last long, but my garden was tiny drifts of white for a couple of days. I'm now left torn between wanting at least one more snow, a good one, with real deep pillowy dunes; and spring with budding little flowers breaking through thin frost and fleet feathery flurries.
Blood and snow, flowers and frost, it's still a little early yet, but I guess that's where my thoughts are turning.
Along those lines, I found a new etsy shop that I'm loving - oddly off pinterest this time, and not through my regular grueling searching through page after page on etsy.
Gardens of Whimsy is right in there with my thoughts turning towards early flowers; and it doesn't hurt she's also a redheaded crafty Brooklyn-girl, too ;-)
She has a huge history of sales (this is definitely a "new to me" entry) so if nothing catches your eye immediately, you might want to give it a peek. She does do custom orders, though I'd read her policies page first.
Me. I think I need to go back on pinterest and see if I can find more step-by-step instructions on how to put my hair up in swanky ways while I try and make up my mind.
