You guys, we made it! The loveliest season is finally here! I've been dying to get my hands on one of Sharon Montrose's popular baby animal prints for a while now, but haven't been able to decide which one I want. What makes them so special is their simplicity combined with such obvious innocence and sweetness. I would cherish it because it would remind me of the special times I've spent visiting area farms with my son Theo. Some of my friends have asked me why we spend so much time on farms and the answer is easy: We live near so many awesome ones and because he basically demands it. (Did I mention he's two?) It's been a long, snowy winter, and now that the baby animals are arriving, and the crocuses are cautiously poking their heads out of the ground, I feel like we're so much happier and ready to tackle the (longer!) days. I hope you, dear reader, are feelin' it, too. Here are some fun finds in honor of the first day of spring.
Made in Dallas, Texas
Chocolate and peanut butter filled candy eggs that are almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
Made in Lodi, California
Absolutely love Marisa Redondo's textural watercolor paintings of feathers. They get me excited for lots of fun bird-watching this spring.
Made in Kansas City, Kansas
At first glance they look like wood, but these delicate 3.75"d coasters of blooms are actually laser-etched felt! Also: I'm obsessed.
Made in Freeport, Maine
I couldn't resist including this classic; they're so well-made and will definitely come in handy on wet spring days. Did you know that L.L. Bean's line is not entirely made in America? You have to look closely. These are part of the "Made in Maine" collection.
Made in Monterey County, California
Crafted with lavender, marjoram, sage, purple oregano, thyme, and bay leaves, this wreath serves double duty by looking and smelling good.
