there is so much i want to share with you: the opening of Mrs. French's etsy shop, the announcement of three days of PHISH in march, the falcon i saw in my yard this morning, and Freespirit fabric.

first, she did it! the wonderfully talented {and super-duper sweet} Mrs. French opened her etsy shop. yipppeee! you simply must check out her beautiful photographs. the colors are positively delightful....delicious, even. i am so excited for and proud of mrs. french. {you can buy this lovely photo by Mrs. French right here.}

second, it's true. the boys are back. bk & his boyfriends are falling over themselves with joy about phish putting on three nights of shows at hampton coliseum. wheeeee.

third, a beautiful falcon made its way to the hood this morning. when i saw it, it was trying to get a murder of crows {sounds creepy, doesn't it?} to buzz off so it could enjoy some breakfast. it was breathtaking.
finally, i'm obsessed with Freespirit fabric. OBSESSED, i tell you. i want the whole dang collection, but i am especially passionate about all of Heather Ross' work and am out-of-this-world excited about the debut of Melissa Averinos' line {Sugar Snap}. {speaking of Melissa, you simply MUST check out her website YummyGoods. totally scrumptious.}
here is a little flickr favorite mosaic i made of the most positively delightful examples of freespirit fabric out there. tres-fabu.
