SPRING FORWARD!



Can you believe that we “Spring Forward” on Sunday?  Wouldn’t it be fun to wind this baby forward?

This winter has been so darn nasty!  I’m really looking forward to putting a * spring * in my step and embracing the gorgeous colors and florals that emerge with the the new season (far right, please!)

I mean, let’s really celebrate.  Break out the fabulous, confetti filled balloons

And set the table with colorful plates like these festive Kate Spade melamine numbers:

Ooh!  Here they are, layered with more vibrant color and pattern.

Love it!  And these charming napkins complete the mix.

Couldn’t you imagine that table set for a spring soirée in a special space like this one?

I hope the host is pouring something light and refreshing — say like Blackbird’s lovely rosé.  Cheers!

I’m even looking forward to spring cleaning.  Tidying up the office?

No problemo…especially if I can stash my trinkets in a pretty accessories box like this one

…and can toss my old papers in a sweet little waste basket like this one

…or this one.

I’ll even be ready for April showers with my new Fortuny umbrella!

And May flowers?  YES PLEASE!  I’m so ready to fill this blue swirl planter that I picked up at my friend Elaine’s divine new store in Darien.

And here it is, brimming with colorful flowers.

You have to visit Elaine’s store – Kirby and Company – to shop for the perfect gift and to sample the decadent treats in her “K. & Co. Confections Café.”  I love these amazing towers of macarons and delights that she whips up for special celebrations!

Speaking of celebrating…spring is such a great time to treat yourself to a gorgeous new bag.  Maybe this floral fantasy courtesy of Valentino for me?

…and this fruity, sparkly number for the little lovely?

Finally, since we’re not out of the woods (or the snow!) just yet, maybe it’s also time to treat yourself to a cheerful new throw to stave off the chill and to brighten up your sofa.

Perfect for curling up and catching up on that hour of sleep that we’re losing.
