"They believe it's Spring!" or "Our front garden provides hope"

I know we are still in the depths of February (hopefully to be followed by the shallows of March), but do not despair dear reader! They believe it's Spring!

January 27th redux

On my way to work today I went outside and discovered the newspaper. This would not normally be surprising, however, today's paper was already inside.

This paper was still wrapped and dry, sitting on top of a snowbank that has melted 6 inches to a foot in the last few days. I opened the paper and discovered that it was actually from January 27th. That was almost two weeks ago.

Apparently, in the time between the paper being delivered and us trying to find the paper outside on the morning of January 27th, it had snowed enough to bury the paper. To me, that is pretty impressive. . .and a little sad.

Yours Sincerely,
Spring-ready in Suburbia

These Isabelle Abramson pendants ( would look lovely in our half bath or our kitchen.

As would this one:

Is it okay to buy things in anticipation of renovation eventually getting to those rooms? Probably not, right? That's a little too much like buying pants that do not fit in anticipation of a diet. Also, these are kind of pricey. Would it be possible to get the same look by wiring a vase? We will have to keep our eyes open for possible candidates.

In closing, let me just say. . .
