think spring!

Today is the first day of March, and it’s a beau­ti­ful sun­ny day in my neigh­bour­hood :D It is not offi­cial­ly spring yet, but I thought I’d share with you a few things that remind me of spring.

I’d like to do all my home­work on these.

While it may be dif­fi­cult to get these bloom­ing chairs and tables from Ice­land, grow­ing an indoor lawn on our desks can be easy — by plant­i­ng recy­cled t‑shirts! How awe­some is that?

And now that we have an indoor lawn, we may need a gar­den gnome.

Turns any child into the cutest gnome. Pat­tern from Lorajean’s Mag­a­zine.

These indoor mush­room gar­dens are sim­ply gor­geous. Made with the edi­ble vari­eties bought from the mar­ket. They make love­ly table cen­ter­pieces, I think.

But if you’re look­ing for mush­rooms that won’t ever wilt and dry out, here are the true dis­play variety.

And here we have the excep­tion­al­ly sweet species — the meringue mush­rooms. I find them so very intrigu­ing. They even look like the real but­ton mush­rooms. Have you seen Martha’s mush­room cake? Mag­i­cal, right? See­ing that I did­n’t have a cake at my wed­ding, I think I must get one of these mush­room cakes for the upcom­ing anniversary.

There are lots of meringue mush­rooms recipes on the world wide web but I like this one from Cor­ner Cafe, because it shows how they’re piped. I’ve nev­er piped any­thing before, so it will help if I ever try to make them.


Have a won­der­ful first day of March, everyone!
