Spring has come

"When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again."
-Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
Springs arrival always seems the sweetest following a long hard winter. This winter wasn't difficult in a absolutely freezing all the way down to my spleen way, but more so in the snow after snow after snow storm way. Then seemingly endless white has broken to blue skies with marshmallow clouds, sprouts of green growth, longer days, and rising temperatures! It's glorious!
The spring flowers I bought almost two weeks ago are still living happily on my windowsill (talk about a worth while purchase!) They have a couple new friends in the sweet potato vines beside them. I felt like I was doing a fourth grade science project, but it turns out I don't have the greenest thumb so I wanted "life" without having to take care of the plant too much. Sweet potatoes in mason jars are right up my alley! 
I am in love with my mini yellow pot I found in the dollar spot at Target. Its going to grow the most adorable mini sunflower (if I can keep it alive, that is).
Bluejay and I live in a tiny two bedroom apartment with lots of classic charm. We spend the most of our time in our movie room/guest room, but it was so boringly decorated! I needed a change. One day when Bluejay was playing a video game called Boarderlands, I was inspired to grab some scrapbook paper and ribbon and add some color with some simple bunting. I like the way it turned out! Makes if feel so much happier and colorful in there! Bluejay thought it looked a little "girly" until I pointed out that there is bunting all over his video game! This next photo is neither pretty nor my photography, but I wanted to prove my point that bunting isn't too girly if you have a a big muscle guy with a huge gun in front of it. He happily agreed.
Back to the pretty, please!
