Lovely Spring Produce

I am SO excited that its finally spring (despite the spring showers) and I found some wonderful produce to stock my fridge last Saturday at the farmer's market!

Among my purchases, I picked up some of these lovely radishes and purple carrots from City Roots, these awesome purple spring onions and some flowers. 

And as a wonderfully decadent breakfast, I feasted on a fresh apple donut. Reminded me of apple picking in September! 

Yum! I'm a little stumped on what to make with the purple spring onions, so leave me a comment if you have any ideas! Have a wonderful day!

Its going to be a rainy week here, so this is my style inspiration. Its almost time for April showers, so I guess I should get used to the rain, but I just want the summer!

Finished Tee!

I finally got around to finishing up this idea I had for a shirt that had gotten a small oil stain somehow. I really like how it turned out!

I used a leftover doily from Valentine's Day and used a metallic peacock-like color of this fabric paint  that I ADORE because you iron the back and then you can wash whatever you have painted on!

Here's a close up. What do you think?

Oh, and here are some pictures of spring! Yay!

What I'm Reading Wednesday

One of my goals for the year is to read 1 book each month in addition to my studying (which is getting more and more difficult the closer we're getting to exams!) and I picked up these three titles at our school library. I love the "new books" section because there's always something fresh to look at and I've found quite a few books I've really enjoyed- even non-fiction!

Fireflies, Honey and Silk by Gilbert Waldbaur
Field Days: A Year of Farming, Eating, and Drinking Wine in California by Jonah Raskins
The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry by Kathleen Flinn

For Japan with Love

Please join me and hundreds of others as we donate to make even a small difference in the aid for Japan as the damage totals keep rising.


Spring Inspiration

I just found Polyvore and am now obsessed! Here's what I created for my ideal spring outfit:

Spring Birds

I really want to work on accessorizing more and I think this inspiration is perfect for me! I really need to work on a style other than jeans and a plain tee, so this is a step forward! And I adore the TOMS. On my wishlist!

Charleston: Inspiration Everywhere

I absolutely love living 20 minutes from downtown Charleston, but I hardly get a chance to just walk around and take pictures. Thankfully, to end my wonderful Spring Break, I spent the whole afternoon on Saturday with my boyfriend and his cousin walking around. Here are some of my favorite pictures!

As you can see, I love the iron work in Charleston. I hope you enjoy these pictures of spring!
