craving yellow

While attempting some organization in the Girlie Office, I was drawn to the yellow craft items and grouped a few favorites.

No wonder! This winter has been cold and cloudy without much snow so everything outside is very brown and matted. I am craving yellow.

February vacation begins for the boys today. While they are playing with what seems to be every toy they have ever received, I will be doing a little playing of my own in the Girlie Office. I just framed some beautiful fabrics from Vintage Lizzie. What do you think?

Finally some spring, I mean over here at your blog. We are still having snow :-(
There are a lot of winters without snow over here and now we are having snow for almost 2 months. What about global heating?

Enjoy your Spring decorations Elyse!

Hi Elyse, Thanks ever so much for stopping by to visit me. I love hearing from you. You really brighten up my little corner of blogland.
I am going to be really busy for a while with the test and all but if you send me your address when I get done I want to send you a little something that you could add to a corner of that darling picture!
What a great way to view something you love that might have just been hidden in a drawer.
