It's that time of year!

Enjoying the amazing spring weather we are having here in Minnesota. We just *may* have the first ever snow free March since they started keeping records in 1895. Crazy! This has everyone thinking about gardening and other outdoor pursuits. I've been enjoying some spring decor in our local stores. This grouping and color palette really inspired me. Love the fun bird houses and other "yard decor".
I want to use this palette and carry it over to Chloe's strawberry shortcake party. I'm going for a fun, whimsical, vintage style. Of course I love to oogle over the cakes and decor ideas over on flickr. Yum!

Tasting: I've been caving into my jellybean weakness.
Smelling: Found some strawberry scented candles for the strawberry shortcake birthday party that we're in full planning mode for here.
Seeing: Little glimpses of green and the happy crocuses blooming in my yard!
Feeling: How wonderfully warm the sun can be even in March in Minnesota.
Little spring vingettes are beginning to pop up around the house.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

The kids got to taste a bit of sweet mapley goodness and we even saw a rooster on our morning at the farm!
Horray for spring!

We're supposed to get an icy, slushy mix later in the week, but we've definitely turned the corner and boy does it feel refreshing!!

Today I wanted to share a few collections that I have that were found as a grouping and bought simply because they were appealing together. Case in point, these china paints. I don't intend to use them (don't even know how!) but I thought they were facinating as a visual collection. I love the names of the colors and the writing on some of the labels. It can be fun to buy several of something just for the fact that it's in a collection.
Later, I overheard a mother looking at a pocketknife with her young son. He simply thought the old pocket knife was pretty cool. The sales woman said, "do you collect pocket knives" and the boy replied, "no, not really". Then the woman asked, "want to start a collection?" It can start that innocently, can't it?!
What do you collect and more importantly why?
