Lovely Spring

Hello! I am enjoying a lovely spring day here in Tucson, and I hope you are too :)
I spotted this magnificent purple flower near our apartment and just had to show it to you. Isn't it lovely?

I just love days like this when you can have the windows open and enjoy the fresh air and the chirping of the birds. My boyfriend and I are going to get our porch cleaned up this weekend and get our little container garden started. I can't wait to have pretty green things out there! :)

I thought it would be a good time to show this little flower drawing I did a few months ago. I believe I showed it on my blog a good while back, but I just found it again while cleaning things up and thought it was rather spring-y :)

I decided to enjoy some mint green tea in my teapot today. Yummy! My mom handpainted this tea tray for me to match the tea set. She is amazing!

Lastly, here is my little painting I did yesterday, "Alice and the Tiny Door." The key fits, but if only she could fit too...

I am going to be working on a wee fairy girl today who I will share with you soon. I hope you are having a lovely day!
