spring things

it’s spring innit? really and truly. the weather is perfectly spring here in georgia. 9/10 times we don’t get a real spring. it just goes from cold to hot. the wisteria bloom and then it’s time to find a pool. so far it’s just been so gloriously spring! warm but also FREEZING. windy and bright. more squirrels than you can shake a stick at. or in my case, than a cat can kill. i’m just really enjoying it. best life vibes.

obviously this is the time to consider the garden. so far the soil is tilled, hay is purchased and the seeds are soaking. i also consider the porch and sitting on it. afternoons are warm enough with a sweater but i’d very much like to improve my view. our house numbers are giant and ugly and literally in the center of the gable (is it a gable?) let’s just say they’re front and center and the font is not my favorite. i’d like a smaller, modern version of numbers and i’d like them still visible but less in your face. sort of married miley vs. single-with-tongue miley. the door needs a color too. it’s orange-y oak and it’s ugly in all scenarios. i like coral-peach. or maybe the hottest of pinks. but what about a combination of the two? (fact: if i could convince all parties i’d paint the house a coral-peach and go for a glossy black door.) also, our porch light situation is as builder grade as you can get. i have never stopped wanting a moravian star. this is a nicely priced one. still figuring out if i want it to hang pendant or flush mount style. (also fact: if it were up to me i’d go with sconces anyway).

in other news…i’ve planted hollyhock bulbs (tubers?) in containers where they’re sure to grow. i’ve also purchased a watering can so that i don’t forget to water them. still to come - dinner plate dahlias, elephant ears, ferns and a whole slew of vegetables in raised beds. mike anderson if you’re reading you need to get to digging.

and still more things-

i’m probably not supposed to walk around in bright turquoise eyeshadow. but i bought some anyway. also peach, lavender and hot pink. can’t wait to play.

this book is in my cart. i’m not afraid.

this dress is not in my cart but it should be. SO flattering on every single body type.

really cute earrings.

pretty colored glass votives for 10 bucks each. a whole slew of these down the center of the table with classic white plates and linens plus a few little sweet peas and pansies in tiny glass bottles would be the perfect easter brunch setting.

can someone tell me why the ultrafragola mirror is 9k? and also can someone give me 9k?

bowl inspiration. or nails.

barettes for your hairs.
