Seasonal Snapshots // Spring 2013

I hope you enjoy these seasonal posts half as much as I enjoy putting them together for you. There were many great brunches and lots of bright spots this spring, despite the lingering cold weather and snow. Every spring amazes me when in a matter of days everything gray and bare turns bright green and the first spring flowers peek their heads up from the ground. I plan on savoring the last few days of spring before summer takes hold.

If you missed the other seasonal snapshots, see them all here.

  1. My husband just said “great chair” when he saw your grandmother’s! I agree, nicely done! I’m curious to see Burn – we saw Detroitopia a few months back. And Detroit pizza? Yum!

    • Thank you to you and Cornelius 🙂 I still need to see Detroitopia, but I do recommend Burn. Coincidentally, the woman that did the upholstery for these chairs? Her son did the music for Detroitopia! Small world.

    • Thanks so much, Bianca! It was my first time seeing purple brussels sprouts, too! They have to be the prettiest of all pretty vegetables 🙂
