Willing Spring Along.......

Its bright & sunny here in Connecticut today but very windy with a crisp chill in the air.  I decided to take matters into my own hands - I needed a glimpse of spring. I found the most amazing teal green planter a few weeks back at Goodwill and I have been so excited to plant in it.  On Saturday our local garden shop, Mack & Twine, opened up for the season and my mother and I paid them a visit. I headed straight for the succulent section and grabbed a bunch of plants!  This morning I planted up my container - I'm so excited to have this little bit of spring on my coffee table in the living room.  Ahhhhhhh Spring - will you ever come?

Jaw dropping....WOW!

I stumbled upon artist Laura Lloyd's work yesterday on Etsy and WOW my creativity sirens went OFF!  I was so excited!! Her ceramic sculptures are whimsical, fun, AMAZING - she uses great colors & I just want them all!! (She's a painter too!) I immediately started envisioning all different spots in my home where her sculptures would look fabulous - I must start saving so that I can buy one!!!

Shout out to you Laura Lloyd! - I love your work!

I'm a marketer at heart and believe in promoting and sharing when I find something interesting, exciting and new - so without further ado...........Laura Lloyd ~ check her out!
