Blushing for Spring Fashion, Decor and Paint!

 Hello from 1 degree Connecticut.  Yes, just like much of the United States, we are freezing a #$$es off!!  Who knew that the expression "as cold as Siberia" could actually be true!!

 This ferocious blast of cold is coming straight from Siberia!!

And this is what is like around NYC and Connecticut!  It is a fight against the snow and wind.
AND
I think the snow won!


So, instead of fighting the elements, I choose to sit at my desk with a cozy blanket and a roaring fire going.  I am so looking forward to spring and shedding the coats, snow boots and leggings.   I can not wait for feminine dresses and lights colors.  



 I am loving the soft blush pink shown in spring fashion and interiors.  It is just a whisper of pink...so soft, subtle and ladylike.

This ring is designed by Rach Parcell of Pink Peonies blog...one of my favorite bloggers. (Note: click on the title of each picture and it will take you to retail site to buy)

I hope this got you fired up for Spring shopping!  Or at the very least, provides a temporary distraction from the deep chill.

Breaking News! Punxsutawney Phil Saw His Shadow.

Happy groundhog day from very, very snowy Connecticut.    We are snowbound for the day. 


Punxsutawney Phil delivered the bad news this morning that we are in for six more weeks of snow.  Thanks, Phil!

With that news, I need a reminder that Spring will be here soon...just not soon enough.  Again, thanks Phil.  So here is some colorful reminders of what is to come!
