Spring is in the air!

At least at my apartment! I am sooo sick of the cold and can't wait for it to be summer, let alone spring (which really goes too fast here in Boston). So lucky for me, this week was the New England Spring Flower Show at the Bayside Expo Center! Hooray for flowers and plants and making me feel like I was in a warm climate for a few hours! I took lots of pictures, but for some reason my camera didn't like the lighting so not many turned out, but you get the idea...




They had some arrangement competitions that were pretty interesting to see...



My favorite of the "Baroque" Arrangements


A small flowering bonsai! I'm loving Japanese inspired things right now.


I brought home these beautiful tulips, and some pussy willow branches, to brighten our house.




Also, earlier in the day I made these tissue pom-poms that I'd seen a while ago on Martha Stewart, to add even more spring to our house! Here's the link for the how-to. I hung one in the corner of my room, and the rest of them in our hallway which has a big bare wall now, so it kind of helps make it a little less blank. Perfect for Spring!


Pink in my room


I couldn't get a very good shot of our hallway, but you get the idea. The ceilings are really high, so this fills the area in nicely.

Also, in preparation for Easter I made a batch of the tomb buns my sister told me about from Michelle's blog. They are delicious! This will definitely be a new tradition for me. But I think I might be making them more than just once a year!!

The flowers are amazing. That's making me really miss spring. Oh, if only it would come faster. :0) And I love your bedroom. Very cute. I'll have to check out that website for some ideas for my place. :0)
