Greetings, customers! Hands up, those of you who are excited about the arrival of spring! IMG_1041The Vernal Equinox, which heralds the first day of the season, is only two days away. Longer days and warmer evenings are on their way, and fruits other than citrus are finally showing up again at farmers’ markets all over town. Welcome spring through your own door with some colorful nods to this season of blossoms and growth.

Alright, so we may or may not have taken this photo with St. Patrick's day in mind, but green is after all the foremost spring color, not to mention the fact that emerald is the official Pantone color of 2013. So green up your wardrobe with some of these beauties!

Some might say that green is the foremost spring color – the color of sprouts and saplings and new leaves. Did you know that emerald green is also the official Pantone color of 2013? Keep the green trend going past St. Patrick’s day and into the first days of spring.

Lastly, we just had to share these adorable little birds. Our avian friends are the true harbingers of spring, chirping their little tunes to welcome the blossoms, and these little seedpod birds are true works of art. They are handmade in Zimbabwe by Raina Mazwiembiri and her daughter, who make a seven hour journey just to collect the seedpods that make up the birds' bodies. They then shape the legs, heads and beaks out of wire and putty, and hand paint each bird with bright paint. We love how each one has such a distinct, endearing personality.
