This is the time of year my mom and I notice ourselves craving spring colors. “Oh, soon the SPRING STUFF will be here!” we exclaim as we walk through the aisles of clearance blankets in the browns and wines and golds and deep olives that looked so warm and cozy a couple of months earlier and now look heavy and dark. It’s still winter, but we’re pining for spring.

Bunny Parade print by Trafalgar’s Square on Etsy (photo from the shop). My sister-in-law bought several prints from this shop to decorate my niece’s room, and I immediately went home and ordered several myself. This one is spring and bunnies.
Melamine Mixing Bowls with Lids (photo from Amazon.com). I have the six-bowl set of these and I use them for everything. EVERYTHING. (And incidentally, the six-bowl set was $20-25 at Home Goods, which is a pretty big savings over $36-for-a-smaller-set. BUT: I’ve had my eye out for the six-bowl set and haven’t seen it again in the pastels for more than a year. So. I’m not sure where that leaves us.)
I know it’s still winter and there should be Living in the Winter Moment while it lasts—but anticipation is a big part of the fun, so I like to do that TOO. I’m anticipating spring colors, and the first signs of my tulips/daffodils coming up, and getting to go outside without boots, and NO MORE SLUSH. What are you anticipating (while still of course living in the now, AHEM)?
