Happy Spring! Yes, I’m going to say that spring has sprung even though some of the country is still sitting under snow. Positive thinking, people!
Besides the calendar telling me it’s spring, I know for sure it is because the asparagus has started showing up at my local farmer’s market. For us, it means the end of winter cooking and moving on to springier dishes.
I dug through my files looking for some spring inspiration. I put together two new color palettes for you!
I know you’re out there already making plans for the December holiday season! How about some color inspiration for you?
I went through my collection of holiday photos and picked out some fun ones that had good color combinations. I also realized at this point that I need to take more and better pictures around the holidays! I don’t need to capture every moment, but I need to make sure I get a few key ones, you know I should have learned that lesson for this year!
Under the Tree
Maybe someday I will share with you my obsessive gift-wrapping tendencies. Maybe not, because I’m a weirdo. For now, here’s a picture of the gifts below our tree from a couple of years ago – nice and colorful!
Mmmmm . . . Cookies.
Cookie decorating at my office from a couple Christmases ago. I really like how the blues in the palette really incorporate well with the reds and greens.
Union Square Christmas Tree
This is a close-up of the ornaments on the Union Square Christmas Tree in San Francisco that I took with my sister. I like how the colors came out slightly muted, but still powerful.
