this time of year confuses me. one minute there's sunshine, the next minute, lots of snow.

so i try to bring the sun inside to remind us that summer is just around the corner.

tropical scented candles, like this pineapple scented one always help transition from the holiday smells to summer scents.

and i unpack the summery dishes... someday i will have a kitchen that is completely cream, avocado and yellow. Ahh.

and, naturally, i stock up on all the fruits and veggies i can lay my hands on to cure the scurvy we've contracted from a particularly snowy winter.

it also helps to receive a little blog award every now and then, like this sunshine award that hope chella sent on over {thanks!}

i'd like to pass the award along to......


thanks for bringing me a some sunshine with your inspiring posts and comments!
pass it along if you'd like to other bloggers that inspire you.

la la la la la, happy weekend.
