April 16 ~ Happy Springtime! We're right in the middle of it here, with the birds singing like crazy, the blossoms finally beginning to pop, and even… a few baby bunnies. There's not much cuter than those little guys, that's for sure. Now is the time to be taking in all the gorgeous colors of the season – there's inspiration everywhere you look!
So Many LOVE Letters

"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want – oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
〜 Mark Twain
"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."
〜 Rainer Maria Rilke
"What a strange thing! To be alive beneath cherry blossoms."
Profile Photo: Meet da Vinci; he works at the library here. Don't be shy – shake his paw. Like most terriers, he's quite intelligent, and more than a little bit stubborn. He's very good at sniffing out the best art books and he'll fetch coffee too, if he likes you. Don't let his reading glasses and teddy bear demeanor fool you into thinking he's a pushover, though. He can be ferocious if he catches anyone disrespecting his books. (In case you were wondering, yes, da Vinci is part of my rich and satisfying fantasy life.)
