April. Finally. This may be the most anticipated April in my personal history. I feel like my entire life just breathed a deep sigh of relief.
I kicked it off by mailing off the rest of the pincushions. Hopefully they will all be where they are supposed to be by Friday. I thank you all for supporting my little dip into the world of making and selling! Please take a minute to leave feedback for me on Etsy if you are so inclined.
I celebrated the mailing of the packages with a little pampering because, lets be honest, happy toes just make life a little better, right?
In the afternoon we went on a little fieldtrip to our local creamery for ice cream.
While we were there I made a new friend whose name happens to be Number 26. We bonded. My only regret is that I couldn't get close enough to rub my face on those fuzzy ears, although it's possible that if I had I might be suffering from a different regret today...
Emma also made a new friend whose name was Come-one-step-closer-and-I-will-attack-you. I'm not sure if you could call what they did bonding though.
This creamery is only 10 minutes from our house and I'm so embarrassed to admit that we've never been there before. I've realized lately that we three introverted homebodies need to force ourselves out of the house more often and have more adventures. We are busting on out of this rut this Spring.
I showed this shot of my mini bowl obsession on Instagram the other day. I don't know what I'm going to do if Anthro continues to come out with irresistible new colors.
What I didn't show on IG was the rest of the story. I have a well documented bowl problem. It's an ongoing joke in my family. This is not even the rest of it. Plus I have given so many bowls to Maddie for her apartment (so that I could justify new ones I had brought home) that she is now in danger of having too many bowls. I'd stop buying them but the withdrawal gets to me every time.
Speaking of Anthro, I got this towel there recently and love seeing the happy colors brighten up my Spring kitchen. In case you worried about the fate of this cute towel, everybody in the house knows that the towel hanging on the stove is hands off. Now, if you come over, you will know too and we can avoid any embarrassing situations.
While gathering up my unread magazines for an upcoming road trip, I got to wondering what magazines you buy or subscribe to. I now only subscribe to Country Living, Southern Living and Cottages and Bungalows but I miss having an endless pile of magazines. I still pine for Cottage Living, Home Companion and Country Home. Luckily I have many saved issues of Country Home which I still pull out every season. That magazine is the one that got away and I will likely never get over the ending of our relationship.
So that's April around here so far. I'm going to finish this day off with a well earned viewing of You've Got Mail while I catch up on Pinterest and flip through some garden inspiration. That may just be the most perfect way I can imagine spending an afternoon.
