Weekend Reading

Weekend hellos. It’s been a wet week here in California, the El Niño storms have arrived! All the damp weather has kept me indoors but we really need this rain so I’m hunkering down and waiting out this winter.

I’m not a January person. Other than that universal urge to purge and declutter which I do find refreshing, the month of January gets me down. I was talking with a friend yesterday who loves winter: cold weather, cozy blankets, warm beverages, trips to the snow. Okay, yes those little things are lovely but the rest of the time the dreary weather makes me listless. I just want to crawl under the covers and nap until spring arrives.

I cheer myself up with images of rooms decorated in the colors of spring. I’m very “meh” about the new Pantone colors, my first impression of the announcement was that the hues are “hospital newborn”, but used judiciously I truly am a fan of pastels.

I’m counting down the days until it’s time for spring decorating, meanwhile keeping my head down working on a few new vibrant fabric prints to feature in March. One of the home improvement projects I’m hoping to tackle is the addition of a garden shed in my backyard. Speaking of ….
