tuesday springtime

i looooooove flowers. and at $1.29 for 10 stems, trader joes daffodils are my seasonal luxury of choice for late winter (or as i like to think of it - early spring!). i thought i'd share the humble little flower arrangements i have in my house today. the beautiful red floral place-mats are a home-made christmas gift from my mother - how cute are they?!

these pretty oranges were noticed by caroline - and reminded me of how much i LOVE the colors of produce. part of why i love going to the grocery store! the weird looking fruit is dragon fruit, a picture from my trip to thailand. sadly, not nearly as tasty as it is pretty.

primary colors

some of last week's most vivid primary colors... with special contribution from oregon's own israel.

happy feet

striped socks (and their feet) belong to my lovely friend caroline. monster socks - a gift from leonard!

this made my day!

on my bike ride in this morning I found this lovely flower bed of paper flowers outside the art institute of Boston. it put a smile on my face. aren't they lovely? I just hope it doesn't rain soon.

drink night

we had some friends over for drinks on monday. everyone made such colorful drinks. the flowers are from a Swedish friend who visited us this week.

happy houses

wearing colors is a great way to bring more color into the world. but, there is also plenty of color out there already to see! i want to train my eyes to pay more attention to the beautiful colors around me all the time. walking down the street in my neighborhood, i can see these three houses all in a row. wouldn't it be great if more people painted their homes like this? i especially love the rainbow brackets.
