Daffodils for Spring


A Daffodil bouquet ready for delivery.


Nothing says “Happy First Day of Spring” like a bunch of Daffodils. . . so I wrapped up bouquets of these lovely blooms and delivered them to my neighbors. Winter went out like a beast, winds blowing all night and into the morning. Most of us are a bit sleep deprived today–so, some floral sunshine seemed in order. Little rays of potential.



Spring arriving on the North Coast. Finally! 


It looks like Spring out here on the edge of the world. Finally! After what seemed like a never ending deluge and permanent grey, temperatures are rising and we’re getting a break from the rain.  The crab apple trees in our yard are just getting ready to bloom and I can see signs of life all around me. The song birds are returning and the air is so sweet. The past few days have been so lovely, we’ve even thrown open our doors and windows to let our farm house air out from winter.

The arrival of Spring also means facing the horror that is our yard. I spent the better part of Saturday removing the final traces of winter and I’m still paying for all that bending and weeding.  Apparently, I turned 80 sometime during the winter and of course I’ve been detailing my aches and pains to IZ all weekend! However, our yard looks better. Sure it’s going to be a season long endeavor to undo all of the neglect from last year. But I’m excited for the work; it means summer is just around the corner.

I’ve also been (well, IZ mostly!) hard at work giving this blog and my store a new look and vision. I’ll be writing more on that very soon. But I’m excited for the changes. It’s all really starting to blossom… much like the world outside.



New Buckwheat Hull Pillows: Spring Fever

New Buckwheat Hull Travel Pillows arriving at Mireio today! 


Do you have the fever yet? I certainly do. I’m ready to grab my super comfy Mireio travel pillow and board a plane to someplace warm. And balmy. That serves drinks with tiny colorful umbrellas. 

If you’re traveling this Spring, or any time really, these new collection of pillows is perfect. Featuring an array of bright and cheery fabrics for every style. But these prints are limited and will only be reproduced a few times—so if you see a traveling companion in the mix shop early! (I’m not kidding here! The pillow on the bottom. … green graphic with cherry flowers on it. . . is a one off! )
