The first glimmers of Spring

By , January 20, 2013

The Christmas decorations have been slowly disappearing back into their boxes, and the birdsong around our place sounds distinctly spring-like. The near-60° weather lures us outside while the sun keeps us warm as we play Scrabble on the porch in shorts, t-shirts, and bare feet. While there’s undoubtedly plenty of cold still ahead, there are certainly whiffs of spring.

On a sunny afternoon just the other day, I clipped some aspen branches for the table and made a few wreaths from virginia creeper vine.

My favorite home decor is that which is taken straight from nature. Simple and classy.

Are you feeling spring getting nearer?

    Looks like the cat approves if the wreaths! Can’t quite picture shorts on the front porch – we’re at a crisp 18 degrees, tho we’ve been getting sun today – most unusual for Michigan. We’re
    definitely keeping lights up around a window and door too to help add more light to the gray days and long nights.
