On My Mind…Lately

Happy Friday y’all!  Is it spring yet?  It still looks like winter here in Maryland, but I know consistently warm weather is right around the corner!  Below are some of the things that have piqued my interest this past week.

1.  Golden Easter Eggs.  

I can’t remember the last time I decorated an Easter egg, but these gold leafed eggs that were featured in the current issue of Southern Living make me want to guild some this Easter.

2.  A Little More Kindness.

I saw this saying on Pinterest this week and it really spoke to my heart.  All of us are doing the best we can to live happy and full lives, and it would be nice if onlookers would just be nice and less quick to judge.  Plus it’s orange and pink which is always a fun color combo ūüôā

3.  Kate Spade Luggage.

Did you see that Kate Spade is selling luggage now?  I’m IN LOVE with this carry-on bag.  It’s so pretty and playful and green!

4.  Palm Beach, Florida.

I visited Palm Beach for the first time last week right before we left Miami.  I felt like a fish out of water surrounded by all those fancy people and fancy stores…but Worth Avenue sure was a pretty street to look at!  I’m really missing the warm weather and palm trees because it’s still so darn cold here in Maryland!

5.  Disco Ball Succulent Planters.

Did you see Laurel from A Bubbly Life’s DIY disco ball planters?  I think they are adorable and they look like they are really easy to make too!

    Love the gold eggs. Where do you get the gold leaf paper? Should any craft store have it? Love the luggage too : )

    We spend a lot of time in Palm Beach and I'm sure you are just as fancy, if not fancier than most of the beach bum vacationers! You always have the cutest travel outfits! I hope you didn't miss Pizza Al Fresco, it is a family favorite. We just did and egg hunt today with some other children – did you know you can buy golden eggs in drugstores and such now?

    So many cute Spring things! Can't wait for warmer weather!

    It's actually very easy to find! You can get it at most any craft store. I believe I got my gold leaf sheets at Hobby Lobby. I hope that helps and thanks for reading!

    Thank you Ann! Unfortunately we didn't make it to Pizza Al Fresco, but I LOVE pizza so if I ever make it back there then I'll definitely seek it out. I didn't realize you could buy golden eggs in drugstores now. Very neat!

    Me neither! This winter is dragging on far too long. Hope you're enjoying your time back at home Karen!
