Papercup

Untitled-1

When we left Lancaster on Thursday there was still a 12 inch thick blanket of snow covering the ground. Upon our return, I was happy to find all of that snow had been washed away by a rainy Christmas weekend. It's so pretty when it first falls, but quickly becomes a big slushy mess. I know we're in for a few more months of cold weather, and surprisingly, I'm still OK with that notion. Ask me again in February and I might have a different story though.

I haven't even started thinking about spring yet, but when I ran across this collection from Papercup I got this slightest yearning for warmer weather. I'm definitely filing this away for a rainy spring day. I think I just got my first glimpse of what I want my warm weather wardrobe to look like.

Isn't that posie print pretty?
After reading your description of local weather I just went outside to check the thermometer. 24 C already. (74 F for you lot who don't use metric). And the time is 10.16 a.m. Which is really 9.16 a.m. because of daylight saving. I find it amazing that we can all communicate through the internet despite different time zones and weather conditions. Ain't technology grand!

Wow! I love these pieces!

I understand the cold issue. I am OK with snow and cold until mid-January when my birthday passes. Then I want the spring! That is when I start thinking of fantastic floral sun dresses and bare legs with cute sandals. *sigh*

I'm never okay with winter because I'm a big baby who only wants to prance around bare legged in short shorts and indecent skirts! This collection by Papercup is the best thing I've seen in so long!!
