{a hint of spring}

There have been little hints of spring around Minneapolis
-- the sun has been shining more, the sky is more often blue {than gray}, and the little birds are chirping outside our window. I love it :)

This summer will be new to us as we don't know what to expect in Minnesota. So far, the winter's have been the same as Michigan. Well, OK, maybe a lot colder, but the amount of snow is about the same.

I'm really anticipating the warmness of the sun and looking forward to the scent of summer. I think I like summer the best because I can wear my red sunglasses almost 24/7, and it's ok! hah. Silly me.

Here are some inspirational photos:

I've closed my blog survey and will post the results soon so ya'll can see who you are :) Thank you to everyone who participated.

I'm sewing a bunch of custom orders, and when they are done I'll be introducing some new, never-before-seen {on my site} items :)

PS. The opportunity to vote for my blog in The Lovelies: Blog: Handmade is ending soon {2/28}. Pretty please, if you like my blog and haven't voted yet, please vote for Gussy . Thanks in advance :]

What season do you enjoy the most, and why?

I love the first sign of flowers. Here in NH, it will be a while but nothing tops that for me!

Those photos were just lovely! Personally I love Fall, but the first signs of Spring always make me smile! There is something about the transition from Winter to Spring that is so magical, how it can go from so drab and grey, to so colorful and full of life! That's God for you though, always full of surprises! Have a lovely day Maggie!

Enjoy the summer!!! It will go by VERY fast, it is short in MN!! Sadly, we had snow until May one year that we lived there!! But once the summer comes, it is amazing!! The nights are beautiful!!

My favorite season in fall!! I love the crisp air, the changing leaves, and sweaters!! HEHE!! I got married in the fall and it was beautiful!!!

Yesterday was beautiful here in Florida - sunny and warm! Of course, pretty soon it'll go back to blistering heat, but I'm enjoying this weather. :)

I'm a winter kind of girl, through and through. I'm enjoy the fresh newness of spring, but dislike the fact it means summer is coming. Heat is not my friend.

I enjoy the winter season the most. I love being inside, feeling warm and comfortable with my family. It's how I always imagined my life to be--huddled inside with the ones I love.

Mushy, i know.

I love fall-the colors, the smells, the bright blue skies, the perfect sweater and scarf weather, the hikes, the crunchiness of leaves, the apples, the indian summer you only get in fall.....I just love it.

I've been seeing the first hints of spring here in Missouri too! I LOVE spring and summer, and especially love the excitement of spring's arrival. You have to really pay attention to pick up on the signs.. like the flowers just starting to come out of the ground, leaf buds barely starting to appear, birds chirping, days slowly but surely warming up... ahhh!! :) Can't wait!
