Happy Monday friends, and Happy February!
The sun is shining and Spring is in my heart if not in my yard. Isn't that just the way it should be? I'm afraid I let myself get down about all the snow and cold when I'm longing for green and flowers. But February is short and there is Valentines day to look forward to and I am busying myself with making Spring things for the etsy shop. It cheers me up to use some bright colors to sprinkle here and there.
Now I admit, I am usually a coffee drinker, but lately I have been wanting tea more often. My only problem is that the pot gets cold so fast I always end up wasting a lot. I was inspired to make a tea cozy to keep it hot longer and of course I wanted something that reminded me of Spring!
I am having a wonderful time mixing and matching fabrics for these little cottage cozies! And just so you know, that is a sneak peek of the new kitchen counter going in:>) It's Ikea butcher block and Earl finished the little spot near the stove where the coffee maker usually sits this weekend.
I love it, no more stained grout to clean!
The next piece will take a bit more work and much longer to install but we hope to have it done in a week or two. This little area gives me a preview and I love it so much I just can't wait to see the rest. This isn't a full remodel just a little freshening up, with new counter tops, sink and lighting, but it will make a huge difference and be a totally different look when it's finished.
So I have lots of projects to keep my busy and before I know it Spring will be here and I'll be ready for it. How are you preparing for Spring? Any big plans for February?
