Rain Rain go away...

The rain is depressing me. It's been here since Saturday, along with a cold streak. Add to that the extra hour of darkness I've got in the mornings and it's made for a very gloomy mood. Spring Break is supposed to be sunny and happy and fun. Not cold and rainy and dark. To that end, I raided the craft stash for anything that screams "spring is here!" and would bring a smile to my face.
Some scraps of cardstock, flameless candles thrifted from the living room and a flower punch were all I needed to bring a little light to a dark boring coffee table.

I got a little carried away with the flower punch, and used a few extras to add some color to this little teapot display.

And since it's been too wet to do anything else, I tried my hand at some homemade gifts. A friend's little girl turned one and I have been waiting to use these Amy Butler fabrics for just the right project. What could be better than a butterfly applique?

And I couldn't resist adding a little detail to the back as well.

So now I'm off to pack for an action packed week in NYC. It's my first time to go there and I'm sooooo excited, but so overwhelmed with all there is to do and all the "must sees" I have on my list. Any suggestions? Places that don't live up to the hype? Things to avoid at all costs? I feel so unprepared!!!
