Spring Fever

Help! Does anyone else have this? Is spring fever going around?

I've been back from holidays for 5 days now and I have to admit, not much is getting down around here.

The sun has been out (a rarity at any time of year in these parts) and the days are getting (slightly) warmer. And I can't concentrate! Granted, I do still have a minimum 3 children running around here everyday, some days more, as they are still on holidays. That may have something to do with the concentration issues. But still. I have a massive pile of things to do and it's disappearing at about the same rate at that banana and green jelly concoction that auntie Edna brings to the family gathering every summer. I don't actually have an auntie Edna, but I do have experience with bananas and green jelly. It's not something I would recommend.

However, in celebration of the arrival of Spring, I have listed 2 new prints that I think reflect the season pretty well, both in colour and theme. Has anyone noticed that I have a slight obsession with umbrellas?

I am desperate to get out of my little box - I leave the back door open trying to convince myself its warm and spring like when its not. Hurry up spring I can't stand it any longer!

Oh yes! Spring Fever will get worse this weekend as the NY temps get into the lower 60s. I going to want to get out inthe garden! And will take my daughter down to the beach for some digging inthe sand. :-)

I am feeling a bit restless too and also more cheerful than I've been in a long time...must be the increase in light (the winter months are very dark here in Denmark).

I live in Florida and I'm excited for Spring to arrive. So for those that receive colder temps and snow. Yikes I know you must be suffering.

Love the new prints!
