Floating on a {Warm} Breeze

It is something like eleventy bajillion below zero with the windchill factor here in central Wisconsin this week. I know that winter is supposed to be cold, but come on! This is so cold that my ice cubes have icicles! I am ready for warmer days to come and in thinking about that I am trying to put all my positive vibes toward an early spring. There is such a thing as willing a thing to happen, isn't there?

I created these earrings because I see such hope in the image of butterflies, and I have to hope that they will return again, although it is so cold that I can't believe anything can survive. These jaunty little butterflies in the most regal shades of purple swing tantalizingly from some brass chain as if floating on a breeze. I long for the brighter days of spring, gardens filled with flowers and winged creatures flitting from bloom to bloom. The next best thing to being depressed by the weather is, of course, retail therapy. Even just virtual window shopping puts me in a better, brighter mood. I went searching for the perfect garden tea party attire and I think I found it! I would pair these sweet baubles with this dainty Yellow Floral Swing dress and these Modern Elegance Peep Toe Pumps both from

Think warm thoughts. :-)

P.S. There were SOOOO many wonderful comments from my last post about the Sweet Serendipity earrings in the Pantone Spring colors. Pretty much it sounds like you are all ready for a change of palettes as I think every color was mentioned at least once! I promised that I would giveaway one pair of the Sweet Serendipity earrings in the color of the winner's choice. But I am feeling extra generous. I have selected two winners at random:
