Marching along

Ah the crazy month of March, it's slipping by.  Typical of March weather, we've had a few days in the mid-80s already, a Hail storm,which beat a lot of the fresh new growth off the trees.   Yesterday it was 80.  Hub and I went out around 7 p.m. to get a few items at the store.  Within an hour, the temp had dropped 20 degrees and the wind was howling.  Cold and windy last night, it's 52 this morning.  No one should pack away their sweaters and jackets just yet.  The weatherman forecasts, but Mother Nature keeps us guessing.

I've only been to Anthropologie a couple of times in the last two months.  They were just getting their spring displays installed a couple of weeks ago.  Here's a few, taken with my camera that is needing to be retired, as it's auto-focus is beginning to act up.  Trying to decide if I will buy a new small camera or just wait till I get a smart phone and use that.

  1. We're still having warm the 70's although I think we might get some rain late this week. We could use it.

    I love that blue chair!! And who would have thought to make cardboard cookies! I prefer peanut butter cookies myself!

    1. I prefer peanut butter too! I think they figured cardboard would last longer. I love that they use cardboard in a lot of their stuff. I've gotten to go to their store before and help cut things for their displays.

  2. I love that chair, too! That is SOOOO neat that you help with their displays. I always thought that would be a fun job. I think Rhoda from Mary Tyler Moore show did that for a living. They have such creative displays at that store. I don't get up to Easton to check it out nearly as often as I would like to.

  3. I've missed your postings for a while.
    I LOVE the staghorn ferns & the wall of tiny seed boxes.
    The cookies would have been a disappointment had I been there. Would have thought there was a little open house & this was my snack!
