Treasures

"The pursuit of truth and beauty
is a sphere of activity in which
we are permitted to remain children
all our lives." 
                    ~Albert Einstein

    I went away for the weekend with my family so I missed the chance to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I have been busy today listing new treasures in the Etsy Shop. I drove home from my trip in a snow storm, which was incredibly tense to say the least, so I have been longing for anything and everything spring related. These treasures all have a soft floral theme! I hope that you will stop by the shop to have a better look and that your week is full of flowers and sunshine!

Pearls

"I feel undressed if I don't have
my pearls on."
          ~Lady Sarah Churchill

   
   I have always loved pearls. They have a softness that is very elegant and timeless. I have taken to collecting strands of vintage pearls and sitting them in teacups or trays where I can look at them when I pass by. I hang them on mirror corners and drape them on hangers with pretty lace tops. They add a gentle sheen that you catch out of the corner of your eye. Quieter than gold or silver - pearls are the accessory that say class and sophistication.

Wishing For Spring

"Is the spring coming?" he said.
"What is it like?"..."It is the sun 
shining on the rain and the rain
falling on the sunshine..."
           ~Frances Hodgson Burnett
                 The Secret Garden

  I can't properly express how much I am longing for spring. Last week was a week of grey days - grey skys, grey roads, snow, and shivers. A friend brought over some lovely little roses but they only lasted a day. Luckily I whipped out my camera right away and even though they are a little droopy in the pictures they still look soft and colourful. The weather man says that the sun will come out tomorrow...I hope that he is right! How do you keep the winter doldrums away? (And if you live in a perpetual summer country lie to me :)
