Taking refuge from the cold...



Spring has retreated for a couple of days where I live ~ it feels like November outside with temperatures not making it out of the 40s. My hibiscus plant, being tropical, naturally doesn’t care for cold weather. It got down into the 30s last night and is supposed to dip into the 20s tonight, so my hibiscus is taking refuge in my living room for a couple of days. Its peachy pink blooms are so glorious, despite the cold, that I thought I would share.


Wishing all of you a lovely day...

Fabrics perfect for spring...


These fabric patterns have me dreaming about spring. I love soft colors and pretty pastel blends in the springtime. In the top photo are Seafoam, Pink & Gray Stripes and Pale Pink Roses. I have always loved florals and stripes together, and I think the large-scale rose pattern (which I created from a photograph I took) complements the skinny stripes quite well. I love pale green, pink and gray together, too.
Below are Butterfly Garden and Lavender Stripes, created to pair together. These two fabrics are actually part of a larger collection I created called Spring, seen further down. All of the patterns in this collection work well together.


To view each of the patterns on Spoonflower, just click on the names in the text above. Most of these patterns are available in wallpaper or gift wrap, too.


I hope some of these patterns have you dreaming of ways to bring spring into your home. Wishing all of you a lovely day...

Romance in bloom...



“Everyday can be extraordinary
And ripe,
Like a flower burst,
If the will is there.”
