Dreams of spring

Last year I took this picture. Although the snow here is gone at the moment, it's still too cold and therefore too early for the leaves.

On Saturday, though, we had 50° F instead of 15 ° F a few days before that. The sun shone brightly through the windows, the air tasted sweet and couples in love danced on the ... oops, sorry, I let my fantasy carry me away. Not about the sun and the air, though. It was like a promise that spring would be back. It didn't stay for long, but it was there and that's what counts.

So I picked for a few items for you which also can make you dream of spring ...

What says spring better than peridots with their lovely green? No wonder Two Silver Moons calls these "The perfect little earrings".

Ca' Lucia Créations by Pat de Verre brings you this gorgeous Venetian glass necklace with a beautiful Murano glass bead set on the side. How does spring in Venice sound? ;-)

This cuff's soft colors - you'll find it at Unique You - remind me of leaves and fresh little blossoms, but they also made me think of going out into the sun without a jacket on for the first time, just with a light sweater on. That is always one of the highlights of my years.

I hope you enjoyed our little dreamy walk, let's hope it won't take too long before it's not a dream anymore!

Spring is my favorite season. Love seeing all the new growth and flowers that bloom after winter.

Spring is a distant memory for us as well - all we've had is rain, loved your post, the colours are so fresh

Love spring too, nature revival, days longer. I am very surprized to see my "rose of Easter" necklace.

I went in Venice more than 20 times...During spring is perfect, no much tourists and generally nice weather...but I love Venice in all seasons.
