much love monday

Hi there-- I hope you're staying cozy in this wintery weather!  
It's a weird time of year.  Christmas and other winter festivities are over, but it doesn't feel even a little bit like spring.  Every year I wish that I could just hibernate from late January through until April.  

On that theme, this week's finds are cozy and mostly in soothing gray tones.

nature
I like nature, and I like when things are nicely arranged and labeled  (really-- I spent an inordinate amount of time as a child sorting Smartie's candies by color, then by smoothness.  I like organizing things.).  This picture is the best of both worlds.

lemon poppyseed cake
Doesn't this lemon and poppy-seed cake look delicious?  It's so hobbit-y!  I could be persuaded to come out from my hibernation-blanket-fort to bake this.  

roving knit blanket
...Speaking of that blanket-fort, I'd like to make it from this incredibly soft, squishy knitted blanket.

kitten in yarn
Or I could just snuggle up in my yarn stash, like this kitty.

dandelion fluff necklace
And I'll wear this dandelion-fluff necklace and dream of spring.

Mmph.  Back to the blanket-fort I go.
Put me on the wake-me-up-in-spring list, along with Mole from Wind in the Willows and Badger from Strawberry Shortcake and the Winter that Would Not End.

  1. What would the world be like without kitties? I don't even want to imagine it. The photo of the cake reminds me of another cooking blog Chasing Delicious, that man has the most amazing aesthetic

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed the photos and links! I definitely want to try making that cake-- the frosting is just whipped cream, which I think would go well with the more savory cake... mmm!
