Spring shopping

Spring always puts me in a shopping mode. Off with the old, on with the new. I'll give you a brief glimpse at what I've been looking at. :)

This just got on my shopping radar yesterday. How cute is it?? I could see a multicolored chalk grocery list up on our wall next to the fridge.

After spending more time than I would have liked peeling apples for dinner the other night I added this to my list. A kitchen is not complete without one. At least I firmly believe that, especially after spending many summer afternoons peeling apples with my grandma when I was younger.

This is a comfort item that I have been wanting for a while. A nice whistling tea kettle on the stove just says 'home' for some reason. And between hot cocoa, tea, instant oatmeal, and french press coffee it would get used plenty.
I've also gotten the itch to start sewing in the past month. I don't have time to start learning how to sew now with school and homework but this summer I think I'll get myself a few patterns and start sewing aprons. Aprons are fairly easy (from what I've read) and I really like cooking in aprons.

Ohhh! And last weekend I planted a box of lettuce! They have just started popping up. I'll take a picture and post it this weekend. And I have completed 4 crochet projects since I started learning in January. It's been so much fun!
