These are a few of my favorite things...

It's becoming spring here in Halifax, and at this time of year, a young woman's fancy turns to clothing. Well, actually, my fancy turns to clothing just about all the time, but spring is especially nice. It's the time of
year that you can break free of the winter coat and boots, and begin wearing lighter freer clothes - floaty skirts and tops, denim jacket and the like. I just grabbed all of my favorite clothes from the closet and noticed something interesting - they are all florals. I was kind of surprised - I've never seen myself as a particularly flowery kind of girl, but I do love all these clothes and
patterns, and I use a lot of floral papers in my bookbinding work. I guess another thing that all these floral patterns have in common is that they are either subtly (or completely overtly) Japanese inspired.
Maybe I shouldn't be getting too excited though -they are forecasting snow for overnight. Sigh...

I love the prints. Floral without being flowery and feminine without being girly. And those patterns suit you very well!
