I've had my eye on color today.
I think it's another symptom of my spring fever
(alas it's only the end of January!).
So bright and cheerful.

I love the unexpected combinations.

I just ran across these shoes from Madden Girl
that capture the same spirit.
(cruelty-free of course!)

Madden Girl Olicia Blush
Madden Girl Sybill Blush

Madden Girl Sybill Blue

And some fun brights from H&M and J. Crew...

Think pink blouse

Kelly green skirt

Fab orange blazer
J Crew cotton cafe capri

J Crew  Bennett Chino

Does anyone else out there have
premature spring fever?

Planting the seeds

I decided I'm going to try to grow some kale and swiss chard
in one of my new little backyard garden beds. 
This isn't the best time of year to plant outside in Seattle, 
so I'm going to start seedlings indoors and then transplant them.  
Here's a little photo-journal of the first few weeks...
My seed packs arrived!

The beds are ready!

Swiss chard seeds

Kale seeds - teeny tiny!

The best window for the seedlings is near the bar.
Why not?

My sentiments exactly!  "YES!" Grow, little seeds, grow!

About one week later. Sprouts!!!

Look how much they grew in just 2 days!
These are the kale sprouts.

And 5 days later. WOW!
Very satisfying.

Those are the chard sprouts on the right.

Still growing strong!  
Now I have to figure out the 
best time to transplant them outdoors.
Seems a little early still.
Stay tuned!

Nude heels

I think I'm over winter.
Is it possible to have spring fever in January?
Well, whatever the reason, I've found myself
 looking for a pair of nude heels.
You can wear them with just about anything
so maybe they make sense in winter too?

I thought I'd share some of my 
favorite options from my search so far.
Vegan, of course!
It's hard to tell the exact shade 
of nude that will look best. 
Some are more tan, more yellow, lighter...
Right now I'm thinking the first option,
the rsvp Velma. Normally I don't
go for an ankle strap, but 
I think it works on these shoes.

Sunday Meditation

"Life is life's greatest gift. 
Guard the life of another creature as you would your own 
because it is your own. 
On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious 
to the creature who owns it than the largest." 

-Lloyd Biggle Jr.

Martha Stewart Speaks Out

 Take a moment to watch this short video by Martha Stewart. 
Yes, THAT Martha!
She speaks with love, understanding and compassion.
Don't we all want more of that in the world?
