Oh hello snowflakes. You seem to be making daily visits as of late. Tell me darlings, are you still in the midst of winter, or have the spring blooms started to peek their heads out of the ground and trees yet? I can't tell you how ready I am to be wearing sundresses and kayaking down the lake. Spring is getting me so very excited - if only it could be here already. I feel a big celebration coming on - cupcakes anyone?
Anyhow, the very lovely and statuesque Marlen of Messages on a Napkin and Flock Together group so sweetly sent this little beauty of a dress over my way - and of course, I was very eager to wear it. As for the turquoise flower I'm donning (yes, I realize it's VERY big) - but not so very long ago, I came across this vintage maxi dress from my grandmother and this flower was a part of it. As my grandmother was tall and slender and I am petite and curvy - sadly the dress was not all too flattering on me, but this oversized flower pin on it was something I could wear to remind me of her. I quite love wearing something of hers so close to my heart as it makes me feel quite warm on these icy winter days.
Have a cozy and warm Thursday darlings,
