Finally in our neck of the woods as well! My mother, our in house gardener, has started planting some of these beautiful flowers!
The hyacinths are my favorites! And I just love that blue triple planting pot. Reminds me of Greece.

Finally I won something at a blog giveaway!!! So excited! I had been participating in giveaways here and there for a while now but never won a thing. Now I finally did and received the best gift ever! Certainly worth waiting for. I couldn't believe the clever and whimsical packaging involved in this little treasure. I almost couldn’t open it! So I quickly had to snap a picture but then really could hardly wait to open it. Aren't these earrings just divine! They are just perfect to wear and I sooooo love them.
Thank you so much Ohrkrone for pulling my name out the hat (or actually from under the stone?) This is a German/English blog with a Dawanda store you just have to see. And the best...she has monthly giveaways! So go get your chance to win!

Lilly's Auntie Ina had to leave today for the summer. We are all so sad and will miss her very much. We also can't wait to see her again in the fall. This is one more picture we took of the happy pair!

I am!!!!!! And here are some items that just make by heart oh so happy with spring feelings.
First off is this amazing
Umbrella Ring. Just imagine spinning it around and around. Love it!
I also do love this Spring Pedal Purse. Walking down the street with this one has to make the sun come out and give us a great spring day, right!
And if you want to cuddle a bit back home, just get this adorable Gilby. You wonder what a gilby is? Well just look at its little peek and it will bring some spring chirps your way.

We went to he St. Patrick's Day Parade in Boston's South End on Sunday. It was the biggest parade I have ever seen! So many people all the way from the waterfront to the Broadway T station and who knows where to. It was fun seeing all the crazy marching bands, costumes, and wagons. I think every marching band in town was here no matter if they had anything to do with the Irish or not!
I loved seeing the Chinese dragons and all.
And of course there were lots of people dressed for the occasion and all decked in green. My favorite was this lady...do the Irish wear Cowboy hats?!
Luckily, the weather was pretty nice for the season and I’m sure everyone had a great time!

We finally went to the German Playgroup today for the first time! Lilly had so much fun and with all the German Mommies to meet, so did we. And afterwards we even had a little time to walk around Harvard Square. I just love it there with all the energy and commotion. Doesn't matter how the weather is, it still feels like a summer day walking around - well, not quite, but it sure doesn't feel as wintery as it does here in Framingham. And back home I worked on some more of our newest Keychains! It is amazing how you just can't stop doing it once you discover something new. So now I have to make a gazillion key chains! It's time to hang one on my key anyway. I can never find them in my large purse and these Flip Flops are large enough to make it a lot easier.
