Spring is around the corner ...

.. you can see it and feel it everywhere ... in Phoenix, at least!

After reading Carol Wingert's blog, and seeing her blossoms in bloom, I was inspired to make somthing bloom in my house. I decorated my dining room chandelier at Christmas, and now that all the Christmas decor is gone, it looked so naked .... so I made some miniature roses bloom on it, which is really nice against the rich burgundy drapes that highlight that room ... and the crystal dangles were a Christmas closeout at the French Bee ....

Speaking of closeouts .... thats another delicious thing about Spring being close .... you can get some irresistable deals on winter clothes right now ... its kind of like Christmas decoration closeouts ... you know you won't use them right now, but its hard to resist such bargains for next year! I took advantage of a few "opportunities" this weekend ... now I hope it stays cool for a few weeks longer!

I can tell spring is close too because I am having a hard time concentrating on being creative in my studio. When its so beautiful outside, it just seems I can't sit still in that chair. Thats okay though ... because I know I'll have plenty of time for that in a couple months when its 100 plus outside.

But for now, I'll take advantage of the beautiful outdoors ... which I did this morning. Metta, where I practice yoga, is sponsoring a free yoga class on the center lawn at the Biltmore Shopping Center each Sunday this month at 10:30 am. It was a tad bit chilly this morning when I arrived, but I found a nice spot in the sun. It didn't take long before Jordan had us warmed up very nicely .... there's something magical about doing yoga, outside, on the lawn, with the sun warming you up!

Have a great week!
