Here’s a little something to distract you from the less than stellar weather outside your door! Or if you’re in the Pacific Northwest – perhaps the warmer temperatures have you feeling like it’s time to look ahead to updating your wardrobe and decor for spring? It’s a month or so until spring will arrive officially – but there’s no harm in planning ahead!
These brightly colored finds remind me that as practical as my wardrobe and home are, perhaps it’s time to spice it up a bit – and what better way to do it than with primary colors like these.
The marigold yellow print from Tessyla featured at the top of this post sets just the right tone, don’t you think? Spring is all about letting go just a bit and living life more freely outdoors, happily anticipating that summer is just around the corner!
I am particularly impressed with the clothing from ThimbleandAcorn – Eve works to include both recycled and upcycled fabrics into her line. She’s got a wide range of items in her shop with everything from modern takes on classic looks to highly unique items with truly innovative details.
Not only does Upstyle have lots of fun fabric clutches to choose from – she will also create a custom purse for you or your bridal party!
Having grown up in Portland I love finding shops from fellow Oregonians – first drawn to all of the cute headbands in her shop I enjoyed reading that the line was inspired by a spring painting of poppies by Susan Hazard.
It’s going to be hard for me to pick just one piece of jewelry from the Round Rabbit shop – so many beautiful choices!
I’d love to hear what’s on your shopping list for Spring, and the handmade finds you’re planning to buy to freshen things up just a bit! Anything in particular caught your eye? I think I’ll need to set a budget because there are just too many things I’d happily scoop up!
