Spring Summoning by pickwickstyle
If you're anything like us, you wake up with your fingers crossed for spring. In an effort to summon the season, I've been dwelling on springy, sunny things in the shop. Here is a handful of them to aid your own day-dreaming!
Barr Co. White Flower Candle - $24
I was glad to bury the musks and woodsy scents of fall and winter in favor of this light, fresh candle. It burns merrily away on my bureau. I look forward to the days (oh, so near!) when I can open the windows and have the breeze toss this lovely scent about. The Hobnail candles are wonderful- soy, all-natural, and they burn at least 100 hours- can't beat it!
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen - $30
Something about the stories of Jane Austen fits the season perfectly. The roses of Pemberley, cotton skirts swinging low in the dewy grass, fresh white handkerchiefs, the rolling English countryside- I've just talked myself into wanting a Regency vacation! Curl up with this tome in the window seat and look up every so often to watch the flowers grow.
Emma Bridgewater Woodpecker Mug - $36
This porcelain mug has been hand-painted in Stoke-on-Trent, England. You can count on its sweet greens and yellows to never fade as the years wear-on. Pair it with a nice herbal tea- I think it's high-time for chamomile, lavender, and fruit loose-leaf to make it back into the rotation.
"Library of Flowers" Field & Flowers Eau de Parfum - $48
This perfume is the perfect transition scent, with its apricot top note, honey blossom heart, and wildflower mix at the base! Light, sweet, clean, and made in America.
"Northern Lights" Taper in New Leaf - $2
It's amazing how effective changing up a few household colors can be as a mood lifter. Mix these spring green tapers with a dusky rose or coral for a refreshing table setting.
"Besame" Portrait Pink Lipstick - $20
I'm a merlot lip girl, but even I'm feeling the pull towards pretty in pink shades as the days struggle to rise above freezing and this one is knock-out. Paired with a light cotton sweater in white or a buttery yellow? Ooh, the style seed has been planted. You may just see something very similar to those color combos on this blog pretty soon.
