it's time to get out! with the temperatures rising, the sun shining, and the birds singing in the morning i want to get out. to get my hands into dirt. to drink coffee on the porch in the morning. to play with the kids in a teepee (one of our next projects!) in the afternoon. we are fortunate to have our own little garden and space right by the house. that's nice, but that's not necessary to plant and be outside. when we lived in the city, we had a little space in a community garden to cultivate. that was so much fun! anouk and i would go there in the morning, she playing and running and getting wet and dirty, me planting, weeding, and getting wet and dirty as well. it was such good times. planting salad, raspberries, and gourgette in the middle of the city. and we had the loveliest encounters over the garden fence, with people just speaking to us because we were there, gardening. so peaceful!

another spring inspiration for you, on this first day of march! WHY NOT put some branches in a vase and let them blossom? when nature is slowly awakening outside but everything is still brown and bare, i like to have flowers in the house. and as tulips are not yet in season here, i like to opt for branches - either cut in the woods, or bought on the farmers market. with the warmth inside, they begin to unfold their little leafs and blossoms, a miracle in itself. try hawthorn (weissdorn), broom (ginster), pussy willow (weidenkätzchen) or cherry (kirsche), they are especially beautiful.

are you longing for spring, too? as much as i like winter, snow and the cold, i'm longing for spring every year - for light, warmth, and flowers to grow. so it's time to get in spring mood, and what would be better than a sping color inspiration? every year, PANTONE chooses a set of spring colors, and for 2017 PALE DOGWOOD is one of them. a quiet and peaceful shade of pink. a little girly, but not as much as last year's rose quartz . i like it combined with brown or navy blue, and think it's perfect for springlike accents in your home - or wardrobe. i got myself a shirt and a pair of joggers in pale dogwood yesterday, just to make spring official.

doesn't that look nice? the first time i saw this was in san francisco, on a trip to california with my family. we stayed in a home from friends while they were traveling and they had those gorgeous shower curtains: a beautiful curtain made of a nice fabric on the outside, and a simple white or transparent one on the inside. so easy to make yourself, and perfect to avoid all those ugly curtains that are on sale. btw - isn't that a gorgeous bathroom? love, love those wooden walls and the rustic feeling they create. combined with the delicate curtain and the old style bathtub - perfect!
