Semi-Wordless Wednesday: Spring Scenes

(Image via 1 & 2)


The temperature on Monday reached just over 80 degrees. Was I completely giddy? You better believe it! As you can tell from my posts lately, spring fever has bitten me and just won't let go. I'm ready for consistently sunny days, effortless sundresses, and brightly painted toes.

I thought for today's Semi-Wordless Wednesday it would be fitting to share some scenes from around my house lately. Everything that's inspiring me is anxiously awaiting warmer weather too- bold jewelry, vintage-inspired platforms, and lovely blossoms!


Welcome, April!


That wristlet is just dying to hit the town- as are those beads.


Hand-me-down polka dot platforms with the most charming pink detail are
desperately wanting to show off a 'Cajun Shrimp' pedicure .


Fresh blooms bring happiness.


My pre-spring routine has consisted of girly movies and magazines.


It's a great time to do some rearranging- new flowers and a
framed print add the perfect touch to my office.


There's nothing I love more than little bowls of trinkets- here, two stamps
and mini clips from SP.


Mardi Gras beads add the perfect touch of sparkle.


A little pink grosgrain ribbon paired with a fleur de lis
from Summer- a little sunshine brought inside.

Link up with Daphne and enjoy the blog hop!


Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I should have known your home would be filled with little bits of happiness! Oh, now I want to watch Mama Mia. I thought the movie would pale in comparison to the broadway show but I think it was just as good, if not better! Happy Wed, Julie!! xo
