The sun has been out for a solid two days and I feel like a new girl. Such a reprieve from what was beginning to feel like living in the middle of a monsoon. Right now the air is crisp and humidity low…could it be possible that spring is actually making its debut? When I think of the early days of spring, I can’t help but dream of delicious minty tones.
A few mint niblets for your Monday:
These DIY mason jar labels by fancy house road are free and fabulous. Wouldn’t they be adorable to use instead of plastic for a spring picnic? Just print on adhesive paper and pop on the jar top. I’m going to grab a pack of mason jars and go for it. You can download these freebies here.
How about some chic swimwear? This ruched criss cross tank enhances the waistline. If you have narrow hips and broader shoulders, I’d suggest the edgier off-the-shoulder tank suit, which also comes in mint. JCrack always hits it dead on.
If you like a warmer mint, you may want to give Ben Moore’s Feather Green #625 a try.
Remember this amazing laundry room from Southern Living’s 2011 Idea house? The color is Waterscape # 6470 by Sherwin Williams, another lovely shade in the minty family.
Lastly, this hip little book filled with words of affirmation could be the perfect gift for a friend or addition to any library or tablescape. Don’t let the whimsical cover fool you, the inside is actually more modern with mottos and illustrations from famous cartoonists, crafters and designers. Great reviews. You can find it here and here.
Cheers to warmer, sunnier days and the perfect hint of mint in your life.
