Spring Dreaming

The only thing keeping me warm right now are thoughts of Spring and these serve as a wonderful reminder that it is just around the corner. No matter what my thermostat says. The folders are by Cavallini & are from Barnes and Noble & all the others are from Homegoods. The canister is exactly the same shade of blue that I want to use in the Studio (Martha Stewart's Pudding Mold by Sherwin Williams) so it will be used in there for storage. I'm going to scan the labels from the chocolate bars so that I can use them over and over. They are so vintage sweet! And the candles. Well, I'm so in love with the little girl that I couldn't bear to keep her in the box and she now sits on my work table to keep me company while I'm playing with paper.


This is the back of the Easter candles. If blogger is cooperating you can click on it to make it larger and see the detail and the little bunny the girl is holding.



These are all from Homegoods as well. The plates will hang in Miss Emma's room to start her red, pink and white color scheme. The labels are beautiful and come in all different soft colored patterns and sizes. Even the box is gorgeous. The pom pom ribbon was only $1.99 for 10 ft each.

  4. Jen - what wonderful finds! I love that your Emma choose red, white and pink for her room! My little girl would probably pick orange, green and blue for her room. She's way too tom boy! :)

  5. Wonderful Stuff. I have spring fever!! I can't wait for spring flowers, Easter Bunny and short sleeves. I'm also diggin the red and pink. If I'm lucky enough to have another little one, he or she will inherit the pistachio room from my daughter Maya, and she will get a new pink and red room just like Miss Emma. Just love it
