Spring is in the House

Spring Inside but not Outside

Doesn't that white tulip seem to be wishing it was Spring outside too?

Cappuccino with a 'Stache

Anyone else need an afternoon cappuccino?

Cuppa Joe with a Mustache

You can even have first pick of mustache mugs. Cute huh? They are from Kimay's Etsy shop, & she makes plenty of other 'stache styles to choose from. A little happy + caffeine = a much more pleasant (& productive) afternoon.

*Oh, you can't make it over right now? It's ok, I will drink yours :)*

Up Close

First shot with my new macro lens:

Mum Petals

I plan on using this lens quite a bit, & it has some heft to it, so I'm pretty sure I can count shooting with it as working out!

I Love Surprises

Creature Comforts featured my Yellow Paperclips photo in her Inspiration Daily post today!

Yellow Paperclips

Such a sweet surprise to come across while sipping my latte this morning, it makes me feel like skipping down the street with a balloon - or maybe an umbrella since it's raining.

*Update* My Metamorphosis photo just popped up on Etsy front page. Today is awesome, seriously awesome!

Vintage Beauties

We had a chance to stay at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco over the holidays. It was bustling & festive, and dripping with glittering chandeliers.

They were in the room,
Crystal and Pleats

in the entryway,
Crystal Globes

even tucked into a stairwell.
Stairwell Chandelier

I'm sure these glorious beauties are just the tip of the iceberg, I'd love to go on a treasure hunt & snoop around for more!
