Let The Sunshine In…PLEASE!

Let me begin this by saying that I love winter.  I love the first big snowfall of the season when even in the city, there’s a hush, the silence of snow.  I love when everything is covered in layers of white & the snow shimmers in the sunlight.  I even enjoy being bundled up in the brisk air & coming home to snuggle on the couch under blankets with a hot mug of tea in my hands while a classic film flickers on the TV. 

What I do not like, however, is the endless winter we are having in Chicago.  ARRRRGGGHHHH!  Even I, winter-lover, am getting tired of it.  This girl needs sunshine, green grass, spring flowers & leaves on the trees.  Sooner rather than later Mother Nature!  Today while trudging to the train I heard several different birds chirping.  It seemed like they were bound and determined to force spring upon us.  Thank you birdies!  You rock.

I think that’s enough whining for one day.  Let’s cheer up our winter blahs with bursts of sunshine yellow!

This adorable lamp base is from Urban Outfitters.  Actually, everything today is from Urban because they have a fabulous shop by color feature.  Love that.

This bowl is too cute.  I had envisioned a yellow-themed post while walking to the train this morning & when I saw this blog post at perfectbound, I knew I had the right idea!

(more rays of sunshine after the jump!)

I don’t know if this Buddha Bank is adorable or creepy.  Adorably creepy?  Sounds good to me!

    Dear little buttercup, sweet little buttercup…

    I have a feeling your winter looks like the one we’re having in Montreal. 3 feet of charcoal-colored snow and slushy puddles everywhere. I too am ready for spring.

    And that lamp base looks just like vintage Shawnee pottery. Gorgeous.
