The Jewel Box

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Here in the Midwest, it seems that we are always having a weather identity crisis.  One day it will be 75 degrees and sunny and then snow and fierce wind the next.  But if the tulips at the Jewel Box in St. Louis are any indication, it seems that spring has finally sprung!  Don't the tulips themselves remind you of little jewels dotting the landscape?  Wishing you all a blessed Easter and a happy spring!

Etsy Faves

Ever since opening my shop on Etsy (which you can take a peek at here), I have loved being a part of the Etsy community.  It is made up of so many talented people with such beautiful creations.  Each day I visit the site I find inspiration, along with plenty of gorgeous items just begging me to purchase them.  Here are a few of my current springtime (because we all need a bit of spring by now) Etsy favorites...

Lazy Days in London

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Whenever Spring finally decides to make her grand debut, the sunshine seems like an invitation to head outdoors.  My favorite outdoor destinations usually involve a park of some sort.  Back when I lived in London, it seemed like the whole city would flock to the beautiful parks when even a glimmer of sunshine would peek through the clouds.  I could always find an excuse to spend a lazy day in the park - reading, writing, photographing, picnicking, people-watching...
