Time flies when you're having fun, they say. I guess we've been having lots of fun lately, because I didn't even noticed when March ended and April began. We've been busy reorganizing, both our cottage living and our inner living, and while I am not ready to share my thoughts on the inner part just yet, I can tell that the latest house project is repainting Anya's room and getting a few new pieces of furniture, which we haven't done in years! So it is very exciting, and I hope to share some pictures soon.
As always, on sunny days (which we have more frequently now!) we like to get out, and there were a couple of such days when I didn't even feel like I needed a coat or jacket. Mom likes to say in the early Spring. "The bird started singing too early" ("Рано пташечка запела") - I often remember this Russian saying when I catch myself dressing lightly after a long winter. Thank goodness, our winters here are not even comparable with winters in Siberia, and sometimes I am so eager to experience Spring that I just go for it - I start singing, and it's OK if I have a sore throat later.
The dress you've seen before (HERE) - you can tell of course that this dress is still translating into the 1960s fashion in my mind. I didn't used to wear pinks, but lately I feel rather drawn to different shades of pink. And pink and purple together, what a color feast! I decided that day, with such a bold pattern go all the way bold or go home, as they say, and added an orange-y red long vest, or sleeveless coat if you will. Then I was just destined to wear purple tights and the felt flower brooch (made by my daughter when she was 9 or 10) which I felt completed and complimented the outfit. The handsome motorcycle complimented it as well, though it isn't mine!
I always enjoy the creative way gardeners have with plants. I love how an old boat and broken clay pot became a part of this improvised little tulip garden!
