There are certain rooms in ones house that have the best light, don't you think? For this house, I think our bedroom and living room have the best winter light. Summertime is a whole different story though. I love making our bed in the winter months because of the gentle winter light coming through the window. The trees are naked outside letting all that beautiful light filter through. Pure magic for me anyway.
Here in the SF Bay Area, I have noticed that the first week or sometimes two, we have fake out spring weather, where all the cherry blossoms come out, and the air starts to smell like springtime in full bloom. Then bam, it starts to rain again, and all the petals end up carpeting the streets and sidewalks. I love this, yet at the same time I'm sad for the trees and plants that were faked out.
My husband has horrible allergies, and since I love cherry blossoms, I had to compromise and not bring in the real deal. These are Pottery Barn fakes, and I think they are pretty nice, but part of me really wants the real ones. At least these last longer, and don't have my husband sneezing.
I just cut out a little 3 month size dress with the rest of this fabric. I decided to not do the collar, or the red rick rack, but I am using the little wooded buttons. I'm on a quest today to find some lace instead for the collar of this little dress. I hope to have this one in the shop soon.
