Party Features: Thinking of Spring


I’m not one to complain about the weather. I mean, I made a conscious choice to live in Chicago, after all. A city where winter spans from Halloween to Easter. I’ve learned to embrace puffy coats and waterproof boots and hats …


… and wearing a hat is the hardest part to embrace. My hair and hats don’t see eye-to-eye. My hair prefers a bit of height (hey, I did grow up in New Jersey); the hat feels very strongly that I should sport a flattened hair look. With a few static electricity fly-aways.


But this winter? It’s been a tough one. Even for the hardiest of Chicagoans. It’s put our tough exterior to the test.


At the risk of coming off as a weather whiner, I’m over the cold.  I’m ready for warmth. And sunshine. Not weather forecasts that being with “brace yourself.” Or being greeted on the first day of March with a fresh coat of snow.


So, can I just send a HUGE, heart felt thank you to everyone who shared ideas and projects at last week’s  Super Saturday Link Party that have me thinking of Spring …

    All wonderful looking projects.
    Weather here in Texas is crazy. Was working outside in 80 deg. temperatures yesterday and now for today a wintery mixture of everything and freezing temperatures this evening. :{

    These are all really neat ideas. I love the jars, and that little sunroom has me up for spring! I’m in Chicago, too. I’ve lived here all my life so not much surprises me!;-)
