I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.
I'm pretty sure we get Spring dead last compared to the rest of North America... while everyone's blogging about green grass and flowers blooming way back in April we wait patiently for a sign, anything to reassure us that Spring is coming, someday.

Today, I feel like it has come!
My lilacs are finally out (look close, there's a bee in my photo too!), my apple blossoms are blossoming, the birds are tweeting and making out, I can hear lawn mowers and the sound of the wind through leaves on the trees.

All of this vibrant action makes me want to seek clothing and accessories that celebrate and imitate the natural beauty that has finally come to grace me after such a long winter's wait.

Above photos are all from my Spring/Summer collection, some are already available in my Etsy shop, some have already sold and some are coming soon!

I am in LOVE with the brilliance ;)

Ladybug, Ladybug...

Just listed this darling vintage apron printed with ladybugs, strawberries and daisies in my shop today. It got me to thinking about the little ladybug that wintered in my studio this year... she (he?) lived on my jade tree all winter and then disappeared the first day I opened my window this spring.

A fun search for "ladybug" on Etsy turned up these gems...

A Confectionary Confluence of Like-Minded Strangers
Giclee Print by Morrisetsy

Germany, 1948
Vintage Postcard from spacejam

LinkLady bug...
Vintage Blouse from Solanah

Vintage Vera Scarf
from theluckyfish

Vera Neumann, that famously lovely designer who primarily designed gorgeous scarves in the 1960's and 1970's (and who has recently been embraced by Anthropologie's Spring collection ) used the ladybug as her trademark symbol.

I have heard that the ladybug is a symbol of good luck, and also, true love.

I think that is true!
