the first signs of spring are exciting. they grab me in, inspire me and give a small glimmer of hope that the snow and cold will go away…..and soon.
today was a gorgeous day. just lovely! the day started off slow – – which i needed, since haven’t been letting my body recoup during the week, running on little sleep….trying to do so much, all at once!
i met up with my wonderful new friend, another sewer and brooklynite like me (she makes bags and purses as well – they are all super well crafted and pretty! check out her website here at Lola Falk).
the rest of the day was spent running a few errands – – which, when the weather is this nice, i could seriously do all day!! the sky was as blue as blue can be, just so sunny and bright!
a few shots i took in prospect heights, my neighborhood, in brooklyn:
i seriously can hardly wait until leaves start growing on trees, i can ditch my winter jackets and dig into the back garden!
look what i found popping up beneath the leaves (read: shit)…so excited to see what will grow here!! it’s a complete mess right now, but i’ve been told the last tenants were avid gardeners and they showed lots of love to this backyard. yipee!
(i have not even the slightest idea what this plant is…….thankfully i have avid ‘gardeners extraordinaire’ in my family….(hey mom, dad, what is this? anyone else know?)
so, in the effort to share and post more even if it’s short and sweet – – that’s it for now kiddos. back to my graphing paper and roll of tracing paper….i’m working on new designs!!!
i hope everyone can feel the spring sunshine on it’s way and enjoy this little break of fine weather :-) and that my ‘views of springtime’ have inspired you like they have me!!
a bientôt mes amis……..!
