Who’s ready for Spring? I was ready long before the first flakes of snow ever hit the ground last October. I really want to see some color (other than white) so I decided to make my own flowers. The festive colors are a welcome change from this northeast winter and the white landscape outside my kitchen window. I’m already thinking ahead to placemats, cozies and some new curtains with some colorful daisy trim. I am determined to have a one season only kitchen! Get rid of the winter blahs – add some color!
