Deep into yet another Polar Vortex here in Iowa with near 50 below zero wind chills! Winter always feels loooong in the Midwest and one of the things that makes it most tolerable is garden seed catalogs and planning for Spring Flowers. And adding bright floral prints to the website! Like this 1940s sequined scarf...

 

 

 

Another (more recently acquired) winter day pastime is Pinterest! Especially now that I've taken up baking. Cupcakes I can make but the decorating is a challenge. Hours spent ogling images and recipes on Pinterest I can easily manage….

 

 

There's something irresistable about an abundance of pink flowers…..no?
