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.
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.
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.
...Speaking of that blanket-fort, I'd like to make it from this incredibly soft, squishy knitted blanket.
Or I could just snuggle up in my yarn stash, like this kitty.
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.
