Wednesday Inspiration- Robin

Hello! Happy Wednesday! Oh man, I am so ready for spring. Last week we were teased with near 60degree weather. That was so awesome! The mountains of snow were finally starting to melt... Fast forward one week-- more snow. Okay, so yesterday was a mere dusting compared to the nearly two feet we received a few weeks ago, but seriously? I am so so so tired of the snow and cold weather. I did see a little robin outside my apartment last week so that gives me hope that spring is just around the corner.... I hope you enjoy some of the awesome robin-themed finds from across etsy! I hope spring is starting in your neck of the woods!

Wednesday Inspiration- Blizzard

Wow! What a snow storm! So far, we've received a little over 20 inches of snow in the Chicago area. Some suburbs have received up to 23 inches. It's officially the third largest blizzard since Chicago began keeping records more than 120 years ago. And it isn't quite over yet. There's still a chance of lake effect snow. It was so crazy last night-- not only was it snowing sideways and complete white-out conditions, there was thunder and lightning too. Winds were fierce at 50-70 mph at times and people were stuck in their cars for hours on Lake Shore Drive last night.

Today, my poor car is completely buried and there are snow drifts up to the windows... Yeah, I'm not going anywhere for a while. Chicago is essentially shut down. So today I'm working from home (and shopping!) I hope you are someplace warm and safe and enjoy today's blizzard inspired finds from etsy!

Wednesday Inspiration- Woodland Critters

I live across the street from a forest preserve and every day I see lots and lots of deer. These deer are so tame they eat out of peoples hands. I drove past the forest preserve this morning and saw them grazing in the cleaning and I thought to myself (as I often do) "wow-- that would make an awesome photo-- I've got to come back here and take some pictures!" (I've been saying this for the past few years...)


In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these Woodland Critter finds from all over etsy!
