Spring…the music of open windows

Spring awakens with exuberant beauty. The perfect time to start my blog.

New beginnings…to share my thoughts, creative ideas…meet new friends who enjoy the same things.

This blog will be about what inspires me…decorating and design with simplicity, cooking, gardening.

Hmmm, creative ways to welcome Spring…

Collect ideas on an “inspiration board” that reflect your style, colors you love.

Gather paint swatches, fabric, vintage photos and postcards, pretty papers, ribbons, misc. embellishments.

Turn on your favorite music, light a lovely scented candle, open a window to let in fresh breezes and before you know it…

you’ve compiled enough ideas to fill multiple boards.

What inspires you to welcome Spring?
